The Hop Pocket Shopping Village was a port of call I made with Diane this week. The village is made up of a unique collection of independent shops offering clothing, furnishings, art, local wines, butchers and a deli to garden furniture and original gifts including a wonderful selection of traditional and modern wooden toys.
Within the Hop Pocket is a family restaurant providing morning coffee, a light farmhouse lunch and scrumptious homemade cakes and scones. Sunday is all about a traditional roast. Everything is cooked with fresh local ingredients.
Take the children – there is a large grassed play area with traditional wooden climbing frames for tots to bigger ones. The restaurant will even serve you a meal and drinks in this area so that everyone is kept happy!
The Hop Pocket is free to enter with free parking. It is open Tuesday to Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays and is well worth a visit.
