“A superb ale house in Ayles....”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

I have been going to this place for many years and it is still the best, friendliest, places in Aylesbury for a decent pint. Very welll stocked with various beers from local and not so local brewerys, lovely food, great staff and not much in the way of noisy youths :-)

“Great boozer”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Haven't as yet tried the food but the new landladies have done an excellent job turning this tap pub around.

Under competition now from the old milright arms for beer quality but not food from what I've seen.

Great pub!

“Simply Aylesbury's best Traditional Pub”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Excellent range of beers, good food, good atmosphere and simply Aylesbury's best pub. Not a chain and at least 10 beers on tap at any time not to mention the huge range of bottles beers, lagers and ciders. While the town centre Kings Head is nice it's very expensive and it's range of beers is very limited. I'd take the Hop Pole over it in every respect except it's Court Yard. The one down side of the Hop pole is the small beer garden which is on the main road.

Thank you for taking the time to review our pub, we are pleased you have enjoyed our range of ales, Belgian beers etc. We are currently in the process of 'revitalising' the courtyard and hopefully this will be completed soon.

Thank you for taking the time to review our pub, we are so glad you enjoyed your dining experience, especially the food tasting night. Since then the new menu has been launched and is going down very well! make sure you pop back in and try something new!
