Hop Pole  

This is one of the Bath Brewery pubs and so serves a complete range of their beers from the strongest to the weakest. You can also order their beer in mini-casks from here. I have to be honest, this pub is a long walk out of town and so you?d be better getting the bus. It is worth it to relax with good, well served ales. As you enter the bar is to the right and you notice that everything is in that light airy pine style to add life to the d?cor. There are a number of areas, but the best is the bar which has high stools to sit and chat to the bar persons. To the right of the bar is a TV for sport and bench seating round the wall at three square tables. This area can get surprisingly dark at night. Then there is the area to the left as you enter where you can sit at tables and chairs ? all light wood of course. The other area just beyond that has sofas and a fire plus the obligatory TV. Flooring is wooden throughout and the walls are a shade of lung cancer yellow/orange (I know, some people like walls that look smoked, and it's traditional). As the ceiling is low there is a smoke filter unit for the hot summers. Food is served here, though not Sunday evening and caters for every taste including vegetarian. Prices are reasonable too. No accommodation, but there are two or three B&B?s along the road a short staggering distance form the pub. Well worth as visit, though you might like to try their other watering hole in the city itself. The pub now has a separate dinning room at the rear of the pub and a large beer garden. The latter a rarity for a pub in Bath.
