A little bit about ourselves…


The Hope Inn was acquired by Martin and Samantha Wood in late 2012 and opened its doors to the public under its new guise in early February 2013.

Both Martin and Samantha have been long time fans of The Hope’s iconic looks, with its ‘Hardys’ Crown Ales’ lettering and brewing history.

Both Martin and Samantha have worked within the pub trade for several years and achieved a fair bit along the way. Martin has over 25 years under his belt winning Camra Pub of The Year 4 times at 3 different venues, and Camra Cider Pub of The Year twice, amongst various other awards. Samantha has over 9 years in the trade, working closely along side Martin, but in parts doing relief work in her own right, as the pair would quite often manage more than one pub at a time.


The general plan for The Hope is not to rewrite history, or reinvent the wheel, just to run a great pub, with a great atmosphere and great beer! We are proud of the Hardys’ Crown Ales history and are pleased to showcase the pubs past, present and future.

The couple are under no illusions that it will be hard work and somewhat of a roller coaster ride at times, but they are more than up for the challenge and invite you to join them on their journey.
