Spent Saturday evening here with my sister-in-law and a friend. We had a couple of drinks relaxing in comfortable chairs, whilst we decided what to order. After lengthy discussions the decisions were made, then that innocent question was asked, what is the daily roast? Beef the reply & 3 roast dinners were ordered. Food when served was delicious, hot &... More

Visited this place on Monday and Tuesday evenings 27 & 28 October hungry after a a days fishing on the Wye. I was taken by someone staying in the same b&b who recommended it. First thing was the beer. I'm a real ale buff but as I was driving a strong beer was out for me so I chose the... More

After a couple of hours we managed to turn around and escape the chaos and found the Axe & Cleaver quite by accident on the A49 out of Hereforrd. It has ample car parking and... More

The pate starter was homemade and one of the... More

Called in this pub after reading the previous reviews and were well pleased we did. This is a great wayside hostelry offering very tasty and excellent value for money food. We chose the steak and ale pie with fries and a platter of vegetables which proved a very tasty and wholesome meal. The pie was home made burgeoning with flavour... More

I chose the roast which was small but just to my requirements it was... More

Went to the Axe and Cleaver for an evening meal to celebrate my father-in-law's 90th birthday whilst holidaying in Hereford with 15 other members of the family. The meal and the service was excellent. The menu was very varied and all meals chosen were enjoyed. Thank you.

Popped in for evening meal whilst on holiday. This place was like stepping back in time...a nice local pub, with a chatty welcoming landlord and a nice ambience. Very much a traditional pub, a pub with real soul. We both really enjoyed the tomato and apple soup starter, and the main courses...plus the welcoming chap at the bar. We also... More
