“TOP FIFTY”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

The food and service is excellent, if a little pricey. The atmosphere is casual, hard surfaces everywhere. Still, an excellent restaurant worth your time and money.

“Knda Rude”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

I found them pretty posh, which meant they had a bit of attitude towards customers but food was pretty good.

had a meal there for a wedding anniversary. Absolutely outstanding. There were 4 of us, so we tried numerous dishes. All were spectacular.

“A pleasant evening out, but not a highlight”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

We chose Hopgoods based on its recent nomination in the Cuisine Restaurant Awards plus a recommendation from a colleague. While we had an enjoyable evening we can't say the food was outstanding. The dishes were cooked and presented well, but we just felt they were a little tired and lacking in flavour. The service was warm and friendly as was the ambience.
Perhaps our expectations were too high but we left feeling a little disappointed.
