Hops in pubs

Posted on by royvickery |


It seems to be quite common for pubs in parts of southeast England to be decorated with dried hops (Humulus lupulus), as shown here at the Rose and Crown, Burwash, East Sussex, in October 2018.

Does anyone have any idea when such decorations were first used?
