Brewery Tap & Beer Garden
EVERY GOOD BREWERY SHOULD HAVE A TAP ROOM
What better place to enjoy a pint than at a brewery? We’ve converted the hop kiln, which once used to dry the locally grown hops, into the new Hogs Back Tap. There’s no need to book, but feel free to reserve a space if you prefer.

Try out the newly redecorated quirky and unique Tap Room – with a bar crafted from aged whiskey barrels, comfy sofas, a cosy wood burner, upcycled tables made from old brewery casks and historic hop garden images adorning the walls.
The Hangar, complete with hop picker and drying kiln, is used in September for harvesting. The rest of the year it doubles as a unique bar and event space. It’s even available for private hire for your special occasion!
You can’t miss the new marquee at the entrance to the Tap! With plenty of seating, and our wood-fired pizza oven, it’s shaded in summer and heated in winter
Our Beer Garden
How about this for a beer garden? Overlooking the hop garden, in the beautiful Surrey countryside, you can’t beat it.
Brewery Fresh Beer
The beer is as fresh as it gets, served straight from the cellar and served from Snorters, our reusable glass flagons. Choose from TEA (Traditional English Ale), Surrey Nirvana Session IPA, Hog IPA, Hogstar lager, Hazy Hog cider and look out for our limited editions, such as Citrus Pale Ale and Juicy Hog. We’re Cask Marque accredited too!
But if you don’t fancy a beer, there’s soft drinks, wine, Prosecco and locally distilled spirits to tempt you.
Tempting New Menu
Our new menu is filled with dishes made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients where possible. Choose from wood-fired sourdough pizzas, homemade burgers, sharing boards, seasonal dishes and weekly changing kitchen specials. We have gluten free and vegan friendly options as well as a children’s menu for the little ones.
Sunday Menu - Dessert Menu
We host live music, comedy nights, film showing, charity quiz nights, live sport screening and much, much more. There’s been notable performance from Milton Jones, Reginald D. Hunter, Seth Lakeman & Kathryn Roberts and Martin Harley to name but a few. Look out for Hoptoberfest, Hop Harvest Barn Dance and Hop Harvest Festival & TEA Party – all coming soon.
We are Dog-Friendly
We welcome all well-behaved dogs into the Tap. We know they can be as much a part of the family as anyone else, and with some great local walking and cycling routes, why not bring them along?
The Important Bit
There are tables and benches in the Tap Room, Hangar, Beer Garden and Marquee, so take your pick. You don’t need to book but we strongly recommend you reserve a space.
We are upgrading our booking system so you can now choose where you would like to sit and pick a start and finish time for your booking to suit you.
When you arrive, please check in at the Bar and we’ll confirm your table number.
When you are ready to order your food and drinks, simply go to the Bar (please don’t forget your table number).
Cards and contactless payments preferred but you can also pay by cash.
Tickets for events are priced according to the event and T&Cs may vary. If there is a ticketed event taking place in the Hangar, we regret this area will be unavailable to the general public or those visitors who have been on a Brewery Tour. However, you may be able to purchase spare tickets.
If there are no tables available to book, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see if we can help.
