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.
