Former taxi base turned into micropub in North Walsham

A former taxi base has been converted into a micropub.

Richard Cornwall, Nigel Davies, Sue Squires and Jane Edrupt opened The Hop-In in the town of North Walsam, Norfolk, after searching further afield outside Norwich for a suitable site. The venue can currently accommodate 30 people and will offer snack food, as well as a selection of six cask ales, two ciders and soft drinks, tea and coffee.

“We are very pleased that finally our dreams have come to reality,” says Cornwall. “We had visited one of the very first micropubs in Nottingham three years ago, and we were so impressed and decided that we would open one in our own county of Norfolk.”

“As deputy mayor of North Walsham Town Council, I was pleased to be at the official opening of the Hop In,” says Mary Seward, deputy mayor of North Walsham. “I wish it every success. It is a tremendous investment in our town and the bonus was that for the first time in my life I got to pull a pint.”
