The Hop & Vine is a fresh approach to fine wines, craft beers and tempting food, in one of Brighton's choicest quarters. Owned and hosted by husband and wife team Sean and Marion with Lucia and Clive as Manager and Head Chef respectively, they aim to bring quality and hospitality to the Fiveways community, and to visitors alike.

Their aim up to this point has been to get the bistro open; designing the menus, selecting the beverages, outfitting the venue and making sure everything is ready to welcome you through their doors. They will now be concentrating on developing the unique events they aim to host (Wine tasting, Fine Dining experiences and Craft Beer appreciation sessions to mention but a few) and the website through which you can keep abreast of developments and learn more of the products and staff that are going to make The Hop & Vine such a singular location in this, the best corner of Brighton!

Hop & Vine is open from midday every day and you are more than welcome to pop in for a bite to eat, a three course meal or just a glass of wine or a coffee.

They try and use Brighton stalwarts as much as possible to supply them hence they use Barfields butchers for their beef, pork and chicken, Henry and his team at Butler's Wine Cellars to select their wine and their ice cream comes from Scoop and Crumb in The Laines.

    Great service. They went above and beyond to accommodate us Inc my 1/year old. Bringing her toys and highchair when she got cranky. Food was fantastic. Delicious homemade homous! Pizzas were authentic and crispy with generous amount of ingredients. Delicious pine, avocado and salmon salad adjusted to meet veggie diet. Would definitely return! "

    " This is a great local eatery in fiveways. We've been here a number of times, both for a quick mid-week pizza and beer as well as for a few Sunday lunches with both sets of parents. The food has always been tasty and the service is nice, attentive but relaxed and not too fussy. A great option if you're in the area. "

    What a warm & friendly welcome to this restaurant which was quite busy for a lunchtime. Lovely to find real ale on offer & a good selection of other beverages. The service was perfect: quick & attentive.The good-quality food was excellent & the diner having a mushroom burger said it was "really delicious". Homemade pizza was also much appreciated & desserts scrumptious. Lighting was good; toilets were clean; there was a variety of comfortable seating & no 'background music' to render conversation difficult! An ideal location with free on-street parking close-by, as well as easily accessible by bus, & definitely a restaurant to revisit for such a good standard at great value for money! "

  • Dave said: "really not great
    Last minute decision to have a meal out locally - really quite poor. Went with three children two of which had pizzas and one a burger. I had a pizza and my wife ordered just a starter as they only had brioches to serve the veggie options on - apparently had been busy the day before and sold all the other types of bread. starters came out quickly but main took nearly an hour and we had to ask several times for them. Waitress pointed out that the order had gone through only 50 minutes prior, not an hour.
    Food came and my pizza was undercooked but the kids were over cooked just too much cheese. Waitress offered to get new ones made or asked if we wanted to take some home but really they were not good so no interested in having it again!
    My wife's starter came - stuffed peppers which were very small and tasted out of a jar My daughter her enjoyed the burger and kindly shared her chips with the others.
    The two waitresses spent quite a bit of time at the bar one playing on her iPhone while complaining that the manager had not paid attention to her taking leave. Quite patronising as we chased the food, saying it would be coming soon and eventually standing next to the food lift for several minutes waiting.
    There were only 2 other tables in the restaurant so at least the saving grace is that they won't be there that long! "
