stopped here yesterday for lunch on a trip from Cardiff to York. First time in Ross on Wye. We walked along the river and decided to stop for a drink and have some lunch. My husband ordered the fish and chips and when the meal arrived it was appeared to be a frozen piece of fish such as is sold... More

I decided to stop here for lunch as I had remembered the Hope and Anchor as being a lovely pub by the river. However, I was shocked by how run down it has become and the grubby interiors put me off ordering any food. It's a shame as its in such an excellent location.

Today a large group of mixed adults and kids visited this pub this afternoon for a spot of lunch. Plenty of space in a big room upstairs with nice views over the river. So far so good. We ordered our food at the bar which was easy and straightforward. Twenty mins later the food arrived. I had a tuna jacket... More

The rooms are not in the pub itself as we thought but separate, to get to them from the pub you had to walk up a steep hill and downs some steep stairs, so it would be no good for Anyone disabled or has trouble getting up and downstairs. our room had a double bed, drawers that I would have...

Stopped for Sunday lunch, expecting it to be busy, but was totally the opposite. Can imagine it being really nice to sit outside by the river in the summer, but indoors it was a bit dingy. Roast dinner was £5.75, so can't grumble at the price and it tasted pretty good, so no complaints. Definitely, did the job

The pub is in a perfect location beside the river but doesn't make the most of this position. It could be so good but the interior is dark, grubby looking & looks like it needs a good freshen up. The rooms are in a separate building a short uphill walk away. Cars are parked at pub level & it was... More

On a sunny day this riverside pub comes into its own with a nice garden leading to the river. They also serve a decent pint of beer: Jennings bitter is not easy to find in the South and the pint was welcome and enjoyable. I wish I could say more in its favour. The food was cheap catering-pack and fried... More

Dropped in for lunch with the family on Thursday around 12 noon. If it was based on looks then we probably wouldn't have stopped but there was a nice garden over looking the river and the staff seem nice and friendly and a good menu available. We ordered lasagne, spaghetti & meatballs, and macaroni cheese for the little one. Half... More

What a superb spot by the river, inside was a bit of a rabbit warren but we ordered and sat outside. We both had sandwiches which I am amazed at how hard some places find it to do. Not a great variety so I ordered the cheese and pickle, hardly any cheese and very dry bread, other half had a... More

It was like going back to the 80s and that may have been the last time the place was refurbished. Service was nice enough but the place needs a thorough updating, cleaning etc. There are lots of places in Ross on Wye so go somewhere else!!
