Bexley’s latest micropub, The Hopper’s Hut is due to officially open next month (September) with it’s grand opening event, located in Sidcup at 1 Invicta Parade, High Street.
Owned by Murray East and Rebecca Tippett, Mr.East left a teaching position in Sidcup so that he could pursue his dream of owning his own micropub, he is also the co-founder of the Brew Buddies micro-brewery, located in Swanley Village.
He said: “I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, when we saw the shop come up for sale we just had to get it.
“It’s about being in charge of your own destiny, and owning your own business rather than working until you’re 100!”
He added: “We’ve had an overwhelming response from the local community, the feeling is that we’ve brought something back to Sidcup.
“It’s an alternative to the pub’s that are filled with noise and TVs. It’s the fact that there’s something quiet to enjoy good quality drinks and good company.”
