The Hope & Ruin is a pub & live music venue. We stock a wide range of mostly local craft beers as well as wines and spirits. Our vegan kitchen is run by beelzebab and serves their legendary vegan kebabs as well as loaded fries and hot dogs plus monthly specials. There are also vegan desserts in the shape of brownies and delicious boho gelato ice creams and sorbets. As many of our drinks products as possible are vegan so if in doubt just ask any member of staff who will be happy to provide advice.

The live venue upstairs is 150 capacity and had bands playing most nights (check our website for details of shows) we also have live shows in the bar some nights as well as ink mathematics quiz nights, cult milk art nights, DJ nights, jumble sales, clothes swaps and anything else we can think of.

Children are welcome until 8pm. Dogs are also welcomed anytime. We have baby changing and gender neutral toilets available. Please ask at the bar for access. For more info on anything please email us via this website. We hope your enjoy your time with us.
