Our experience eating in The Hop Garden was a very positive one! The place had a nice atmosphere for a Wednesday evening, not too busy but too quiet either. The service was great, we had a really friendly French waitress and the guys behind the bar were also lovely and changed a cocktail for me when I did not like my first one. The food was tasty, the portions were perfect and the chicken was delicious. The kitchen changed around our dish for us on our request with no hassle which we really appriciated! Overall it was a great mid-week meal in our local bar and we will definitely be back!

As a group heading to WOW this was an ideal opportunity to ensure an early meal pre show. This was our first experience of using first table and have to say we were not disappointed.
The venue was perfect, the food superb and the service outstanding.

We really enjoyed our meal @ the Hop Garden, both the food and service were fantastic.

I had the pork belly entrée and the slow cooked lamb as a main, the rest of our party had the steaks. All large meals and in hind sight we probably should have shared the entrées and had a desert.

The bar has a variety of craft beers on tap and by the bottle to tempt everyone.

Thank you for an enjoyable evening, we will be back : )

Absolutely amazing. Having a first table experience here was great, as we were able to taste and share a lot of the share plates Hop Garden has to offer. Service was really great, lovely staff who helped recommend some of their favourite plates. Highly recommend.

It was our first time to the Hop Garden. They had a busy night with the restaurant fully booked so we sat in the bar area. Really enjoyed our meals and appreciated that the chef tweaked my meal due to dietary needs. The waiting and bar staff were very friendly and checked in regularly. Would definitely go again.

Great good & service. We shared starters, sides and each one got their individual main. It was a very nice experience! Loved the desserts.

This is a great spot. Totally under rated and the food is top notch. They also have a great selection of beers and wines. The Hey Day Stout on tap was perfect for a winter's evening. Steak cooked perfectly and the desserts are simple but delicious. We'll be back

This was our very first First Table experience and we were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We got our drinks,quickly, then chose entrees. The arancini and pate were both delicious. But the best part was to come.... the Angus steak was perfectly cooked and the accompanying potato gratin was quite possibly the best i have tasted. Recommended!

Great food and service!! I had the pork belly and it was mouth-wateringly good. My Mother had the chicken and she was definitely impressed.
Definitely a funky little restaurant I’d return to.

We had the most amazing dinner through first table at the Hop Garden! The food was sublime and came out so quickly, we decided to share entrees and small plates so that we could fully make the most of the range of craft beers on tap. They also had so many exciting vegan options for our group that everyone loved. The service was great and at the end of the experience we had only paid $10 each to fill the whole table full of food! Will definitely be booking the Hop Garden on first table every week for the rest of my life!

Great we hidden gem. Lovely feel to the place with an indoor/outdoor feel. We sat beside the freshly lit fire and I had a gorgeous mulled wine and my bf one of beers on tap. Food great and lots of GF options :)

Atmosphere great staff really lovely friendly and understanding. Had a big problem with the mains given to me which was compensated with a complimentary dessert after being offered something else to be cooked.

Great spot for a feed and a beer. Burgers had great flavour. Wanted to have a second! Poutine was a bit shy of gravy though.

Sophie Hale

The arancini are out of this world.
The mushroom bolognese is absolutely delicious.

Wasn't a fan of the festival dessert - too many elements for my liking.

But the service was excellent and the menu in general, excellent too, so would definitely recommend.

Dined here before going to watch the rugby, awesome service and food! We got about 7 plates to share between the three of us and it was a memorable feast (we probably overate a little..)The food came out super hot and fast, the service was also lovely! Would recommend if you want to try somewhere different and eat a variety of food :)

Ignoring this gem of a place in favour of the KFC in the front: Rookie mistake!! I wanted to try somewhere new for a nice night out (and being a poor student I searched using First Table lol) and based on the reviews of Hop Garden I decided to booked here! And it was awesome! The minute you walk in you immediately get classy rustic vibes that transport you into a cozy, relaxed setting away from the hustle and bustle of good ol' Wellington. The food was lovely; I was a massive fan of the pork meal, which was huge, and the brownie - which at first looks like it's on the small side, but is in fact the perfect size after their filling mains! The service was super friendly and attentive, and they have mulled wine! Essentially, a Hop Garden experience is the type that leaves you thinking about who you'll return with next time in order to take credit for finding one of Wellington's best kept secrets!

what a hidden GEM! when we arrived at the front door we thought what have we done..but upon entering the warm, humming, friendly place we were stoked then the meals came out and they were "beautiful " and the staff were lovely! definitely be back on our next visit to welly!

Awesome food and atmosphere. Effort has clearly been put into the menu with so many vegetarian/vegan options (and still great choices for non vegetarians). It was all cooked perfectly too - definitely planning on coming back :)

Good food, friendly service, easy to use first table voucher.

Ended up getting a bunch of sharing plates and burgers. For nam jim squid, crispy cauliflower, Asian pork belly, arancini, fries, and three burgers, im pretty stoked!

Good choices for jugs of beer to wash everything down with too. Highly recommend and will be going back.

Lovely food and great service thanks.

Bought a bunch of share plates. The edamame was great, the arancini was to die for, and the popcorn chicken was liked by all. My personal favourite was the spiced cauliflower, which had a balanced and flavoursome crunch. Wash it all down with a large jug of Garage Project’s Hapi Daze, and you’ll have yourself a happy night!

Had a bloody fab time. Staff were great and food was sooo good. Highly recommend the cauliflower starter. Definitely going back

Good atmosphere and great food! The steak was tender, and as a group we had it cooked three different ways and all were pretty on point. Our final group member had the lamb and commented that the smashed potato and pea accompaniment was really tasty. Food came out quick and good drink options too. Thanks Hop Garden, Recommend!
