The Hop Pole Inn
the Hop pole, Bromsgrove.
This is a delightfull pub that brings the meaning of the word 'pub' to life.
They stock 4 regular real ales that are ever changing, including OBJ that was once brewed upon the premises.
The cellar is second to none in the way the beer is kept and served.
It has recently been taken over by a new tennant landlord, who is a very pleasant man indeed.
The staff are all kind and well trained in the knowledge of what they sell.
The pub also stocks a variety of local and not so local ciders in both bottle and on draught, including the locally brewed and award winning Tardebigge Cider.
They also stock and ever changing array of home cooked 'pasty pies' and deep filled pies too. These can be eaten hot or cold as a take out or with chips on site if so desired.
The usual pub snacks, including locally made pork pies are available too.
They host a super quiz every Monday evening from 9PM, and anyone is welcome to turn up with a team and play for the cash prize for that evening.
There is no limit on team numbers, and only a £1 per person to play. Great fun.
The Hop Pole Bromsgrove has a beautiful beer garden out back bedecked in flowers and shrubs and a lovely staged decking with tables and brollies, and a well maintained and very clean smokers area.
The toilets in this facility are top notch too. Clean and well stocked with all that is required.
There were even daffodils in the ladies, nice touch.
The Hop pole is also regarded as maybe the best live music venue in the surrounding areas, and have live music four evenings a week. Thurs, to Sunday night from around 9pm.
It is always free to get in and the musicians that are booked are of really high quality.They really do try to cater for everyone and everything, but please note that this is not a food outlet as such, but a real drinkers and musicians outlet.
All in all a great place for a great night out on any evening of the week. There was even a few boxed boardgames for you to use too.
It is due to be refurbished on the exterior so i understand, and if it is to be anything like the inside of this great little boozer, it will be great.
Go on, try them out, I did and love the place. A great atmosphere and a very warm welcome to everyone. 10 out of 10 I say!
