Fourth or fifth visit. Not as good as it has been. Went last night because there is a new chef. Had a very average dinner. The burger's were dry and the macaroni cheese a bit floury. The ham egg and chips was good by all...More

Order at the bar to have food delivered to your table. Had crispy duck salad from the starter menu, which was enough for dinner along with a cup of tomato soup. The soup was thick and had a lot of flavor with hearty rustic bread...More

The Hop Pole was a few blocks away from where we were staying in Bath. I believe it's a pretty traditional type of pub with seating all around the bar and tables fairly close together. We ate supper there and I had some English sausages...More

The Hop Pole is a comfortable, spacious and friendly pub serving good food and top-notch beer. During summer months and periods of fine weather, the garden comes into its own and is the perfect place for mellow afternoon quaffing.Situated opposite Victoria Park, The Hop Pole is welcoming to all, including well-behaved children and dogs alike. It is a must-visit for anyone who enjoys fine food accompanied by equally enjoyable cask ales, or wine from a selection designed to suit all tastes (and all pockets!).
