A new pub will open in Bromley this evening, replacing the former Beech Tree and providing four new jobs.

The Hop and Rye, in London Road, opens to the public from 7pm after a VIP reception for local businesses, residents and regular customers.

Owned by national pub operator Stonegate Pub Company, the refurbished watering hall is named after the historic main route from London to Kent’s hop fields.

Unlike its predecessor, the Hop and Rye will serve breakfast daily from 8am and offer evening meals and snacks through until 9pm.

General manager, Sue Quinn, said: “It will mean customers who walk past the pub on the way to work can stop for breakfast or to pick up a coffee at better value for money than even in the coffee shops.”

The pub has also doubled the previous amount of handpull pumps, and will offer pints of real ale for £1.99 every Monday.

A Frank Sinatra tribute act is set to mark the launch night, and will begin from 7.30pm tonight.
