“The worst hotel in the United Kingdom”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Friends visiting Hererordshire had unwittingly visited the pub for a drink & light snack. The beer was almost undrinkable and the light snack , uneadable.They invited us to meet with them in the bar, the place was dingy , unloved, dirty, with sticky bar and tables. We are old enough to remember The Hop Pole when the food and ambiance was 5 star, and people travelled for 60 miles to sample their Excellant food. Not now , our dog has a cleaner kennel, and better food.

“Great fresh food and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Went into wetherspoons next door, waited an age to be served! Luckily for us went into the hop pole and had 2 meals red wine and a pint for 11 pound! Discount for BUS and real homemade chips and fresh salad, great place, avoid wetherspoons.

“Hit the spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Popped into the Hop Pole yesterday (Sunday afternoon) just for a quick bite to eat. Was fairly quiet which was nice and actually managed to see the new decor which is good too! Had a burger and chips (Spicy hot burger, cant remember the actual name). The food was nice and hot, fresh and I really enjoyed the burger, nice big bit of beef and very spicy, which hit the spot. I thought the chips were amazing, very big and lovely and crispy but fluffy inside. All in a all a good value 'pub' meal. Definitely the best pub to eat in along Commercial Road.

“First visit since the refurb that took place a few years ago”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Nicely refurbished and a pleasent place to be. It always used to be freezing. Hag a gammon steak which was really good but did not think much of the chips. However I did see them delivering the leading brand of chips. Its just I personally dislike the leading brand. Others like them though which is why they are the leading brand. Looks a good place to watch sports events.
