It's not easy to find and certainly off the beckon track, which in my opinion makes this place more special. The location is beautiful, well worth the trek to search out. We went for Saturday lunch over the Easter weekend, it was reasonably busy. In the summer I can imagine this small area being horrible with tourists. There is limited... More

After a long walking day on the Wye Valley Walk my sister and I were warmly greeted by the owners of this interesting quirky and simply comfortable hotel. It dates from the 1600's and it certainly retains its charm. Our twin room was very clean and comfortable for our two-night stay. I guess while walking we burned a lot of... More

My husband and I have stayed here twice during February half term. The accommodation, food, staff and location are all brilliant. We had lovely walks along the river and up the hill. Definitely return again.

A fantastic experience all round. Popped in for a quick drink after a walk with the dog. All three of us made to feel very welcome by all team members. Great range of beers and ciders. Treats for the dog. Fantastic views and to cap it all off home on the hand pulled ferry. Going back for lunch today. Highly... More

Turned up without a table on a Thursday night and just managed to get a table. An amazing menu that had a great choice and also a separate specials menu. Staff were very friendly and had good humour and happy to help. Dishes were excellent and couldn't fault any part of the venue, staff or food. Keep up the amazing... More

Visited here again with my partner and my Mum for lunch. Once again, excellent service and stunning food. Mum's first visit here, and was totally in awe of this place. We are old hands though! Can't wait for lunch next month, and an overnight stay in May. Thank you Pete, Chris and the team once again, for making Mum's visit... More

HAd food envy today as chose bacon brie cranberry toastie with chips (which was fab) but watched someone devouring mussel soup served in a bread bowl. It smelt and looked... More

Had not been down for over a year and as usual we have come away feeling money well spent. Great selection of ales (can recommend the HPA Wye Valley). Great food and wine menu. I opted for the lamb special which was fantastic, followed by an excellent bread & butter pudding. Stayed in room 7 which has recently had a... More
