The Hop Pole is a great pub/restaurant with excellent food and service. Booking is essential on Fridays and Weekends but you may just be able to turn up on other evenings and find a free table if you are passing through Bewdley. There is a large table for big groups and plenty of space for couples and smaller parties. I... More

Had a really superb meal! The food was fabulous. Superbly cooked and beautifully presented. A lovely menu to choose from, catering for everyone. Service could not be faulted, even though it was really busy, it being Mother's Day. We were made to feel very welcome and the time allocated for our table was more than ample. An unusual touch was... More

Have been to the Hop Pole on numerous occasions and the food has been excellent. Last night the lamb curry was very watery and the battered fish had more batter than fish. Very disappointing. Did not complain as we were not paying.

Gosh I am sorry to read this how disappointing that the food wasn't to your liking. The fish is delivered at similar weights to us and we cover with our own home made batter all I can think is that the batter may of been thicker than usual. I do apologise. You have been many times before so you are... More

Eighteen of us went to the Hop Pole on Saturday night for a double birthday celebration. We booked the tables a couple of weeks in advance, and at that time we were asked to make our menu choices. They said that this was, "so they could treat a big party of people as though it were a table of four."... More

With large parties we ask you to either arrive for 6.30 or 8.30 on busier nights so we can get the balance right for our smaller tables in the middle of service. As you said the party all arrived for 8.30 and we had your tables ready so invited you to take a seat. It is quite normal that we... More

Well, it would have been Mothering Sunday if we'd been able to get a booking but for Mothering Sunday the restaurant was full to the brim with 200 mothers, sons, daughters and whatever on Sunday so we went on Saturday instead. Whenever we have a celebration in the family there's never any question as to where we go, it has... More

Took my parents last week for a Birthday celebration on Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I would say that I am not a big fan of traditional Sunday fare, but The Hop Pole served up a treat. We enjoyed three courses, trying a few things that we wouldn't normally go for, with all five of us agreeing that this was... More
