Gastro Pub
The Hop Vine formerly the ‘Royal Hotel’ was built in 1874 and was the main stopping off point for goods being transported to and from the old Turnpike road the A59. The Royal as it was known has served the community and travellers alike. To the rear of the building in our historic Cobbled Garden you will find our own brewery housed in the stables which were used for the horses and stage coaches as they passed through the village. From Ales to YPA’s, to Blonde beers we are a small producer using primary English hops brewing exclusively in house for The Hop Vine and our sister pub the Legh Arms.

Our countryside sister the Legh Arms is our latest addition to the family and is situated in the pretty hamlet of Mere Brow. Here we serve our trademark delicious home produced quality food and excellent home brewed ales. Your hosts Mike & Julie and their superb team bring a wealth of experience in the trade and have sourced the best in the local area to tempt you.

Lovely food as always, my friends and I book regularly, Katie the manager is outstanding, always sociable, and ensures that things run smoothly. Had the spicy ribs as usual as they never disappoint, same with the crumble. You can't go wrong with a winning fomula

Starters were small, but agreeable. The steak pie was serving was 1/4 of a full plate pie, and not great value for the price charged.

We have tried to get a table here on a few occasions and it has always been fully booked, so I was really pleased to get us in. The food was excellent, the service was again excellent and the value was good too. There were 2 adults and 2 children aged 6 and 3 and all of us really enjoyed ourselves. The staff were so attentive, which is very rare to find and all our needs were catered for. I was really impressed and will definitely be coming back when I can get a table again!
