This is one of the best pubs we found in Bath for food. Really nice little pub. 5 beers from Bath Ales. Great location and enclosed beer garden.

We went to The Hop Pole whilst visiting Bath over a girls weekend. Nice place with plenty of character. I had an excellent Belgian beer called SteenBrugge Blond, there are some fantastic ales on tap too, my favourite was Barnsey. The food was delicious, we all sampled each others food, all cooked perfectly and tasted incredible. I can guarantee if I'm ever in Bath again I'll be straight back to The Hop Pole.

A traditional Bath Ales pub in every respect. Wooden floors, wooden chairs, but still a comfortable atmosphere. Nice beer garden out the back (as long as the TA aren't being too noisy next door) with a variety of shaded areas for hot days.

usual range of Bath Ales, well kept, and the usual range of good quality food.

Can get very busy, particularly on hot days as its opposite the park.

A Bath Ales pub serving food. The main attraction though is the large garden. Usual range of Bath Ales beers with prices from about 3.20. Quality was fine and service quick and polite - not that the place was busy in the early afternoon!

Judging by the number of staff there I assume that it gets busy at times - shame that they can't find one to serve behind the bar who is trained in changing barrels!

Visited here with a friend on Easter Monday after watching Bath City get thrashed by Forest Green Rovers. We were going to walk past and head into town but the torrential rain forced us indoors.

I ordered two pints of Bath Ales Dark Side and a packet of crisps which came to 8.10. The crisps were 80p meaning it was 3.65 a pint. On a previous visit I think I paid 3.20 for a pint of Gem. I remember when the Hop Pole was one of the more affordable pubs in Bath. Not long until it's 4.00 a pint !
