*** UPDATE ***



Unfortunately, due to new Government advice around COVID-19, Wild Hop is currently closed for business.

We look forward to welcoming you back when it is safe to do so.


Stay safe & thank you for your support!!


Cheers – The Wild Hop Crew





At Wild Hop, the safety and security of our team, our guests and our community are top priority.


We plan to continue trading until we are advised not to; until it is unsafe to do so; or until it is not viable to do so. With such a high proportion of casual workers, closing our doors unnecessarily would impact many households in our local community.


We are constantly monitoring the situation, and following advice from the Government, as well as looking to our peers, both locally and abroad, to spark ideas on how we can ensure safety within the venue.


We have implemented the actions below, to maximise hygiene and safety to all involved. Some of these are standard practise within the hospitality industry, but we thought we would let you know about them anyway.


  • We have installed a hand sanitising station at the main entry

  • We are spacing tables to a minimum of 1.5m apart 

  • We are encouraging “TAP ONLY” payment, where possible

  • We have removed our Tasting Paddles from the menu, as the tray is particularly tricky to sanitise during service

  • We have removed cuttlery caddies from tables - you can grab cuttlery & napkins from the bar, and salt & pepper will be avaliable for you to grab, and sanitised after each use

  • We have removed childrens toys and colouring in, and encourage you to bring your own

  • Tables, bar surfaces, and public touch points like door handles are being sanitised with added frequency

  • We have a “Green Hop” system in place to show that our team have cleaned that table & touch points on chairs after the last guests. 

  • We are conducting toilet checks at 30min intervals, which include cleaning of benches, main entry doors and paper towel dispensers

  • Our team know that they have our full support to stay home if they, or a close loved one, are unwell. They have been advised that this is a non-negotiable, and that no jobs will be at jeopardy in that process

  • Our team have been re-trained in hygiene practices and advised to keep a 1.5m distance from others


We would love to have your support and patronage through this testing season, but we do ask that if you or a close loved one are unwell, please stay at home. It goes without saying that if you have been told to self isolate, do it!


When the weather is fine, there is plenty of open-air space for all of our patrons to enjoy – we encourage you to rug up and enjoy the outdoor space before winter sets in. 


Thank you for your continued support, and we wish you and your loved ones well!!


Cheers - The Wild Hop Crew
