About Hop Temple

Rejoice with good food, good beer and lots of good cheer at Hop Temple, located at the rear of Armstrong Street North. Rally family and friends to venture down Ballarat’s iconic Hop laneway and revel alongside likeminded people, either inside the unpretentious, cavernous warehouse restaurant styled with concrete floors, wooden benches and tables; or outside whether the sun shines or not, with warming fires and umbrellas gearing towards casual dining. Sedate a ravenous appetite with modern pub food designed to complement a beverage menu as long as your arm, perhaps start with Southern popcorn chicken and chipotle mayo, or smoked Peppa Pig nachos, avocado and sour cream. From the smoker come plates of pork ribs and brisket, served with sides like potato salad, cornbread and mac ‘n’ cheese.
