Hop Pole, Bath, Somerset   2 comments

Hop Pole Bath

My internalized complaints about the Trowbridge House and its less-than-genteel <ahem> management came back to bite me on the ass as I found none of the pubs I thought would be nicer open and then wound up settling on the Hop Pole, more a restaurant than pub but, blessedly, also one of the brewery taps for Bath Ales.

I scanned the taps for something dark, but settled on a Gem. Some yuppie mums pushed their prams in behind me and ordered some lemonades. Loads of the suited ones came through for their reserved tables and I thought I had made a brash choice (and not just because the brewery’s dark, what I really wanted, came into focus as I cleared the sweat and rain from my glasses).

However, the bar area is mostly traffic-free and the music was a pleasant enough mix of safe pop (even bordering on elevator kitsch) and the bartender was friendly.  Main drag, Bath…find it here.
