Staff are amazingly friendly. Food is good, too. We had a roast Sunday dinn--the chicken was moist and flavorful and the veggies were delicious. We came back he next day for lunch and enjoyed the cheddar sandwich. Nice outdoor patio.

First experience with the British Sunday dinner. I had roast beef, husband had chicken. Came with gravy, fluffy roll, roasted and mashed white potatoes, roasted and mashed sweet potatoes, parsnip and cabbage. Delicious, but couldn't eat it all.

The Hop Pole is a comfortable, spacious and friendly pub serving good food and top-notch beer. During summer months and periods of fine weather, the garden comes into its own and is the perfect place for mellow afternoon quaffing.Situated opposite Victoria Park, The Hop Pole is welcoming to all, including well-behaved children and dogs alike. It is a must-visit for anyone who enjoys fine food accompanied by equally enjoyable cask ales, or wine from a selection designed to suit all tastes (and all pockets!).
