Never done a TripAdvisor review. Been to the Hop Pole for 5 years. New owner and the drinks are still good, band are excellent and atmosphere is as always. New owner is terribly rude and I won't be coming back.

Super pub - drinks great. Wonderful to have somewhere local to see bands - nice beer garden. 2 of my favourite bands haven't been booked again after many return requests so hope the venue isn't changing

Decent beer and atmosphere. A good line up of live music in a small and cosy pub. Small rear garden for sunny days

Busy little pub with a fantastic music scene. Very friendly staff. Great bands every week Small dance area, and can get very cramped when a popular band is playing.

Always a friendly welcome from staff for the Monday night quiz - good range of beer at fair prices - what's not to like!

Ham or cheese cobs. First Saturday of the month there is a pizza oven set up by Pizzareeta in the garden.
