Excellent, reasonably priced, inventive menu.

Good beer, excellent food based on an inventive menu, friendly staff. What is there more to say? Try it.

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

I have been to the hop pole many times and it's brilliant, this occasion didn't disappoint! Great friendly staff, always there to make you feel welcome and fit right in, food was scrumptious! New items on the menu which just looked so fresh and tasted even better, always recommend this place to anyone! Definitely a place to go.

We came with a large party for our Christmas meal. The pub was nicely decorated and had acreally warm cosy feel to it. Tables were nicely set. The food was the best we've had for years at a Christmas meal. I keep meaning to come back here with the family. The only minor gripe I have: we sat on benches... More

Thanks for your comments we love our little pub and pleased when others do too. I am in the process of getting rid of the benches and replacing with chairs, so hopefully on your next visit they'll b in place. When you book though make sure you just ask for chairs and we'll ensure you don't get a bench. :-) More

I've been here before on a number of occasions as a couple and with a group and it has been good . However on this occasion the food was not up to the usual standard some of it cold and tasteless. Sorry but I won't be retuning

Lou1968Lou, Owner at The Hop Pole Inn, responded to this review

So lets get this right. If you have been on numerous occasions and enjoyed your time with us why did you not speak to someone on your last visit if your food was cold and tasteless seems crazy to me to keep that to yourself I know I wouldn't? Our food is far from tasteless so not sure if this... More

We returned to take advantage of the £25 Roast Chicken (serves 4 adults easily) 'early bird' 6pm special to celebrate the arrival of friend's first grandchild. Abundant roast potatoes...more than enough for four hungry adults,flavoursome local, new potatoes in mint, shredded cabbage and baby carrots, superb stuffing and of course the wonderful cauliflower cheese (which we all had been looking...

Our Sunday lunch really is just like what you want cooked at home but in a restaurant so you have no washing up! Thanks for your review. :-) More
