About The Pursuit of Hoppiness, Bridport

About The Pursuit of Hoppiness, Bridport

Alasdair McNab set up The Pursuit of Hoppiness in the small market town of Bridport in 2016. From the start the aim was to provide a comfortable pub ambience where beer-lovers could relax and enjoy a sparkling range of craft beers as well as a well-chosen line of ciders, wines and spirits. ‘Most of our staff were customers first,’ he says, which shows the way Bridport has taken this perfect pub to its heart. There are also regular tap takeovers, meet the brewer events and a monthly beer club guided tastings with a different beer style, while tasty bar snacks such as pork pies keep hunger at bay.

The Pursuit of Hoppiness, Bridport Mission Statement

Hoppiness is happiness. We hark back to an atmosphere which you would find in pubs of a bygone age. You will find no TV screens, gambling machines or juke boxes in this boozer. Neither will you be scowled at by restaurant diners for disturbing their ambience… Instead you will find good beer and wine, friendly and knowledgeable staff and all set in a cosy environment that some have compared to an alpine lodge..we'll let you make up your mind about that one. Family friendly and community focused.
