Overview

The Hop Pole is located just on the outskirts of the tourist town of Bewdley. Inside the pub there is a central bar area and various areas throughout the pub for dining. There is a garden area to the side of the pub as well as great patio seating all around the front of the pub. With its location just slightly on the outskirts of the town the customer base is both local residents and customers travelling for its great reputation for food.
