A pleasingly austere taproom, The Hop & Berry – which replaces former gastropub The Barnsbury – resembles a 1930s Quaker meeting house. Decor is decidedly no-frills, with well-worn woods, scuffed utilitarian furniture and an aged bar where boards display various hop and berry-based refreshments. The emphasis is firmly on craft beers: expect great stuff from Weird Beard, Fourpure, Gypsy Hill and nearby micro Hammerton, among a dozen draughts on rotation. These are backed by interesting bottled beers, stouts, cider and a snappy wine list where ripe ruby Band of Brothers Western Cape Pinotage costs £19. Daily deals apply, with cocktails such as Easy Lay (we didn’t ask) sold on a BOGOF basis all night on Thursdays. Stilton arancini or crispy chilli squid and salmon goujons tartare are among the bar bites from £5. Otherwise, dine informally on mains of celeriac and sweet-potato crumble, or perhaps roast lamb with dauphinois and salsa verde.
