We visited to join in with the fortnightly acoustic open night session. Good atmosphere and drinks priced very reasonably. Only drawback not easy to park. Try it when there is live music.

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

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.
