For the less intrepid suburban mountaineers and those who don't want to cross Kent Terrace in order to be in at times rugby hideous Courtenay place, the Hop garden at the bottom of the Mount Victoria suburb, provides ambience. The site used to be the beloved Greek Taverna. which alas must have fallen on hard times.
Dining, snack and drinking areas are well catered to. The service is friendly and informative. As its name would suggest, local craft beers are well worth a try.
