“Love this venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

We took a trip to the Twisted Hop as we had heard such good things about the beers. It was most definitely worth it....the staff were great - so friendly and helpful and the beers were fantastic. We didn't have a meal so cant comment about the food but if you are looking for somewhere with great beers then this is it

“An o.k. Night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Friendly staff. Not a huge selection on menu quite basic. Would return if looking for somewhere for a drink and bar snack. DJ music selection was not enjoyable.

Hi Lesley, I'm sorry I did not respond to your review at the time but I would like to do so belatedly.
Our menu selection has been significantly increased since your visit - we tweak it every season and are introducing our Spring menu at the beginning of September. As for the DJ music - it was New Years Eve and I have to agree that it did not work - and will never be repeated! We regularly have live music on Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons. This Saturday (23rd August) is our 10th Birthday Party; music and happy hour Challenger all day - hope to see you there! Stephen

“Excellent ale and food”

I am on holiday and read the good reviews and was not disappointed. Great range of beers and delicious food. All the staff were very professional and helpful. Well worth a visit, just outside Christchurch centre.
