Lovely riverside setting. Greeted by friendly staff. Shown to room which initially looked fine. Old and cottage-like. En-suite door was an interesting shape. Reasonably clean but definitely needs redecorating. Went to bar for a pint. Beer was nice. Ordered food. I had a burger that I think had been deep fried. It was disgusting and greasy. My partner had a... More

This is a restaurant review only. I visited the Hope and Anchor after a day of paddling on the River Wye. We moored up at the conveniently located jetty and made our way up to the lively pub. The pub was very busy with people enjoying the summer weather and we found a table outside and ordered some food and... More

Welcoming pub by the river on the outskirts of lovely Ross-on-Wye. Big garden complete with a wooden structure for smokers and lawns down to the river. Inside its a mish mash of public rooms some up stairs as are the loos Food offered varies from the filled baguettes to more substantial meals. The tuna baguette that I chose was fine... More

Called in after a day of canoeing. Food was good and service prompt. Staff were welcoming and friendly. The pub is in a great location with lots of external seating and views over the river. 5 of us ate here and the food was pretty good and prices reasonable. 3 ales on tap plus a Bank's beer and the usual...

We stopped off at the Hope and Anchor this weekend on the way back from the food fair in Abergavenny. The pub has a lovely location right by the river, with loads of inviting benches to eat outside. We had a drink each, and ordered a BBQ chicken baguette and a ploughman's lunch from the menu which is full of... More

A bunch of us moored up having canoed down the River Wye and stopped for a pint and a bite to eat in the beer garden. They were clearly very busy and, despite a bit of a wait coped pretty well. For the prices paid the food is perfectly acceptable and the venue serviced our needs as required. Great that... More

This was our first visit to Ross and we selected this pub as it was by the side of the river. We were so disappointed! We ordered two cheese and pickle baguettes. It took 40 minutes for them to arrive and must have take all of 4 minutes to prepare. There were soft bread not crusty, the pickle was Branson... More

Have just returned from a pub lunch at this establishment. We sat outside in the large beer garden overlooking the river on a nice sunny day so it was very pleasant. The inside of the pub, however, was very dark & dingy. The menu was fairly basic pub grub, but it was fresh & reasonably good value. The bar staff... More

This Inn is in a lovely town. Old, charming and affordable.Beware if you stay on a weekend! There is a beer garden and it is noisy. Ask for a room not overlooking the river but rather the street.Walking distance to centre of town.Staff not very friendly.
