The Hop on Bank Street in Wakefield has just emerged from it's three month refit - and what a transformation.

Included in the Mark II version is a main bar extension, doubling the capacity at the expense of a third of the beer garden. This chapel-like lounge has a real fire, comfy pews and even some stained glass to admire.

The bar itself offers a total of nine cask (usually four or five guests plus Ossett & associated micros) and eight keg (including Rat Brewery) products. The small stage adjacent to the main bar has also had a makeover, but the real metamorphosis is at the rear of the pub.

Where once the back bar, toilets (now upstairs) and Jam Inn stood, there's the impressive Weekend Alter Ego Bar.

Stretching the entire length of The Hop, this new bar offers a range of craft/keg beers with Brooklyn, BrewDog, Magic Rock and Backyard at the moment, along with four casks from the core Ossett range plus White Rat (also available on keg).

You can enjoy the ales from the comfort of an assortment of seating - booths, stools, leather armchairs etc - and the room is available for function hire.

A big bonus, if you're making a night of it, is the hot food available in the new upstairs Kebab Shop. The kebabs can be eaten in the shop or are available for take away, and price-wise compete well with the Westgate equivalents in an altogether nicer environment.

Outside, and despite the extension there's still plenty of room for alfresco supping when the weather's kind, with a new giant brolly and a handful of statues being the main new components.
