The brains behind an American-style smokehouse restaurant are about to open up a spin-off diner in Northampton, specialising in chops, steaks and gin.
Hops and Chops - which is set to open in early March - will specialise in steaks and chops that will be cooked over a fire, and bosses say there will be a focus on tasty side dishes too.
The restaurant will be located in the former Wild Ginger premesis in St Crispins Retail Village, off Kent Road, and will have space for 80 diners.
The people behind the new eatery, Hops and Chops, are brothers Matt and James Ingram, who also own the Smoke Pit in The Ridings.
Bosses say the new gastro pub venture, will have a "well-stocked gin bar", offer a selection of craft beers, an in-house cheese counter and will also have a regularly changing menu.
