We ventured to the recently opened Hop & Pickle in South Bank after stumbling upon this bar whilst eating at a restaurant nearby and couldn’t help but notice the large crowd throughout the venue on a Friday night. We decided to visit on a week night to avoid the large crowd and enjoy a quiet night sampling the food and drinks.
The menu features bar snacks such as ham hock croquettes (pictured above), mini dagwood dogs, asian glazed pork belly with cucumber relish (pictured below) and buffalo beef brisket with blue cheese dip, while the mains change daily Saturdays are reserved for “pub classics” from around the world and traditional roasts on Sundays. One of the mains available when we dined at Hop and Pickle was a steak with some to-die-for onion rings (pictured below).
The drinks menu features a range of craft beer on tap from local Newstead Brewing Co and Goat and Rocks Brewing. There are also a range of popular bottled beers from Asahi to Little Creatures and Corona and for the ladies some wine, champagne and cocktails!
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Hop & Pickle and can’t give the staff enough credit, they were so attentive and knowledgeable on the food and drinks. We would highly recommend Hop & Pickle for anyone looking for a nice bite to eat or a Friday afternoon drink.
