We spent one night at the wharf house as a celebration for my husband's birthday. From the moment we arrived we received friendly and attentive service. The room was spacious with lovely views and a luxury feel. The bed was very comfortable and the mini bar was a nice addition. We ate in the restaurant that evening and both thoroughly... More

Extremely relaxing and all I needed. Room had a lovely view over the canal, great spa bath and lovely furnishings. The staff couldn't do enough. A great change from chain hotels. I will definitely be coming back.

My husband and I stayed here on the night of our wedding as our venue did not have accomadation. When we arrived at the room there was nothing to congratulate us although they were aware that is was our wedding night. We weren't expecting champagne but a card or special decoration costs little. Little gestures go a long way. The... More

My Mum, my sister & I went to the Wharf House for the taster menu for our combined Birthdays. As we drove into the carpark you felt like you could of been in the middle of nowhere instead of a stones throw from the main carriageway out of Gloucester. From the moment we walked in the door to the moment... More

I was taken here as a Birthday treat by my partner for an intimate evening & champagne dinner. The ambience and the food were excellent and the Staff were friendly. A very enjoyable evening was had. The only thing for us was finding it as its not well signposted.

We have stayed several times at the Wharf House. Built by the Over basin, where the Herefordshire and Gloucestershire Canal will meet the Severn once the canal is fully restored, all profits from the Wharf House go towards the Canal Trust. The Canal Trust’s task to restore the 34 miles of canal to Hereford is a daunting one, given that... More

My partner and I visited Wharf House for dinner having heard nothing about it, the food was delicious and the service impeccable. The waiter (James) was very polite and well mannered and the food was perfectly presented. I would highly recommend the Herefordshire Venison! Thank you for a lovely evening, we will definitely be visiting again.

The food was well cooked and presented and the layout and ambience fine, but for a reasonably high cost restaurant you only get the bits you pay for. No bread roll at start, no mints or chocolates when you leave and nothing in between. With no frills and small portions we left after two courses having spent £60 and went... More

An AA Red Rosette 4 Gold Star Restaurant with Rooms serving quality freshley prepared produce. 7 lovely ensuite rooms of real character with views of the Canal or River inclucing one ground floor room with independant access which is suitable for dogs and is fully accessable. We would strongly request and advise advance Reservations for the Restaurant. Signature dishes such as Venison rolled in Walnut with a sauce of red currants with a hint of Dark Chocolate and vegeterian and fish dishes that show imagination feature.Please note that we do not have a childrens menu but welcome young diners who will not disturb our other guests and wish to experience the normal a la carte menu. Our menus are designed as three courses, with side dishes available for those who wish, but the option to choose less courses if you wish less.
