A traditional Real Ale House with an
intimate atmosphere for live music and contemporary décor, favouring the
'unplugged' feel that comes from close contact between artists and
members of the public.
The unique concept began in late 2008 as an amalgamation between Jamie
Lawson, director of Ossett Brewery, Mike Heaton drummer from Yorkshire
Indie band Embrace and ex-Virgin Japan MD Mike Inman.
With over 13 years brewing experience and over 35 years knowledge of the music industry, The Hop concept was born; The Hop Wakefield in 2009, The Hop Leeds in 2010, The Hop Sheffield in 2011, The Hop York 2013 and The Hop Saltaire in 2014.
