The Foodhall stocks fine and wonderful things to eat and drink, with free samples every day. We have fresh meat and pies, fresh bread and pastries, as well as fruit and vegetables, cheeses, smoked fish and pates. There is a wonderful garden centre, which is well stocked with good quality plants.

When one gets parched the Farmhouse Family Restaurant is at the heart of the site with fresh coffee and tea, freshly made lunches, homemade scrumptious cakes, and a play area.

The gift shop is an Aladdin’s Cave of gifts, further in you’ll find outfits and footwear for ladies and gents, as well as Children’s clothes, with wonderful furniture and interiors. Up the wooden stairs, or the lift, the room opens into an enormous range of wooden and traditional toys. Around one corner gift books and books for children, in another, wonderful original art and jewellery.

Alongside our car park we have Clusters Emporium, a delight of artwork, therapy stones, antiques and a large button bar.

In our historic buildings we host a wonderful "Year of the Hop" museum presented by the Bromyard and District Historical Society. It charts the growing year of the hop, and an industry that has shaped the local area.

The Hop Pocket is a rural shopping destination that can be found 12 miles out from Hereford on the A4103 Worcester road.

Caring For The Planet

We have a wealth of local suppliers, many in our large Foodhall, and other local craftspeople like potters, woodturners and makers. Our Garden Centre is stocked mostly from local nurseries. The Hop Pocket has PV panels on every viable roof, we are heated by a biomass boiler and we are a local employer. We are much recently improved and sympathetically insulated. We are walker and cyclist friendly.

The Hop Pocket Shopping Village Recommends

Lovely loop walk, up the lane at the back of The Hop Pocket, then footpath along the river to Bishops Frome church and the village playground. Another footpath back onto the lane where you started. A pleasant hour's stroll.
