Friday evening and very busy. There did not appear to be any cask beer available.
Hop Stuff - Any Day APA3.80AcceptableFrom a keg and a bit over-fizzed. Light and quaffable.
01 Dec 2017 (Philip Pirrip)
Opening day here and my visit was from 10pm until 11pm close. Second major pub opening in the Lewisham area in a week and obviously aimed to trap the Christmas period trade. Every single sitting and standing space was taken, by almost exclusively a 20s and 30s crowd, and it felt as if has always been there. Located just off Deptford High Street which, however, remains unkempt, drab and uncared for.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Deptford, Greater London, SE8 4BX.

This new modern style bar opened on Friday 1st December 2017 in St Paul's House in Deptford Market Yard and operated by Hop Stuff Brewery of Woolwich. Large open room with bar along one side and an open to view kitchen with attractive domed pizza oven. Keg beers are served through 16 wall mounted taps behind the bar with beer selection menu on a pin board on the wall. Part of slowly gentrifying Deptford High Street. Reported in July 2018 that cask ale was no longer available here. Taken over by Molson Coors when Hop Stuff went awry. Bought by Salt in late 2021 and rebranded.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 5 different beers and tried 3 of them.
