Hoop & Grapes, Farringdon, London



One of the most historic pubs in Farringdon, the Hoop and Grapes once served as the secret London location for clandestine ‘Fleet weddings’.

Scheduled for demolition in the 1990s, it was saved from the wrecking ball by its rich history and heritage - and now lives to tell its tales as a grade-II listed building.

Where people would once visit to marry under legal loophole, they now flock here for food, drink and a fabulous atmosphere, with the pub promising the perfect union of brilliant beer and hearty homemade fare.

There are usually four ales on tap from Britain’s oldest brewer, Shepherd Neame, and with the pub having once won a ‘Perfect Pint’ Award for exceptional beer-keeping, you’re assured a pour in tip-top condition.

There are fine wines and malt whiskies aplenty too - with a selection of cigars should you wish to accompany your night cap in style.

A heated patio and balcony prove popular throughout the year here, with outdoor space at a premium in this part of the City. Inside, meanwhile, there’s darts and poker to be found in the games room, and live sport on TV courtesy of BT Sport. 

Last but not least, there’s also a pair of fantastic function rooms available for private hire - perfect for celebrating those special occasions. When it comes to wedding celebrations, in particular, the Hoop and Grapes certainly has history…

I go to the Hoop & Grapes regularly and think it's great. The food is served quickly and is always of a high standard. Sausage and mash or the sausage baguette are my favourites. The staff are always friendly and helpful and make you feel like nothing is too much trouble. The place has a nice atmosphere with good background music and plenty of outside seating.

I used to be a regular here until I moved jobs. At the weekend I went back and after 5 years the manager still remembered us :) Such a friendly little pub. The food is fab - proper pub food and not like the microwave rubbish you get in some places. Its all fresh and a really good selection on the menu.
