Description: Situated on the beach in one of the best locations on the KZN North Coast, you will find a gem, Hops Ballito – Home from Home “where everyone is one of us”. Experience spectacular sunsets, whale & dolphin watching whilst sipping on your favourite beverage or savouring the great food served by friendly staff in a relaxed environment. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, you'll find locals and tourists alike at this popular venue taking in the view and the ocean breeze all year round. The casual menu includes all of your most popular pub meals prepared on order and not forgetting the all-time favourite, Eisbien. Pastas, Pizza and a variety of healthy options are available for the more health conscience customer. This most treasured watering hole is the only bar in the world that offers BOTTOMLESS draught as an option. A large variety of draught beer is on offer, most of which are served at one degree. A great selection of wines are available with no corkage being charged for wines that are not available off our wine list. For the little one’s they have their own menu and to top it all there is a secure outdoor play area to keep them entertained while mom and dad relax. Feeling lucky? Visit our private casino and let the magic begin!

We basically visited HOPS daily. Best pub in Ballito.
Great food. Great Specials. Great Service.
Owners are friendly and helpful and will make sure you get only the best service.
Great atmosphere with live music and directly on the beach.
Perfect for an ice cold beer with the rugby or a cocktail looking over the sea.
We had a lot of different meals from the menu and all of it was of a very high quality.
You cant visit Ballito without visiting Hops.

We arrived and took ages to get helped, after finally getting service it took an additional 30 min for our drinks, which arrived as we left as we decided to leave due to the bad service... And it wasn't Even full

Had a delicious lunch - and there is the sea view as a bonus.
The menu is wide and there was live entertainment on the Sunday afternoon

Seriously needs a makeover the place is totally rundown. The staff are always friendly and the service is good, the menu could be changed to add a variety of different baskets as I think the finger foods are rather popular.

There are a few pubs in Ballito, but I believe Hops is a notch above others.
Service is fast and friendly. Meals are reasonably priced while offering good quality. Setting is a few metres away from the breakers.
Whenever I have friends from JHB, or a business lunch, it is always one of the spots that comes straight to mind.
