Huge portions and friendly staff

We visited yesterday for a bite to eat and a few drinks and were greeted with friendly staff who accommodated us. The view from the river is lovely and looks like summer would be buzzing. We were originally invited to sit in the dining room. But this was a bit dark and lacked atmosphere so a but... read more

My wife and I have recently spent the weekend at the Bridge House in Wilton, Ross-on-Wye and on two of the three evenings we walked the 75 yards to the White Lion. Here we enjoyed the riverside view, the friendly service and an excellent home cooked meal. We would recommend the Lamb Shank with Rosemary Gravy followed by one of... More

Walked from town one hot Tuesday lunchtime especially to visit this place. No advice on Web page as to what time they're open...but we took the risk. Arrived here dead on 2:30pm to be told the restaurant had now closed (at 2:30!!)...and, besides, they were "catering for a party of pensioners". Ok! I turned tail & never even stopped for... More

We booked in advance as it was Easter Sunday. The food was good quality and cooked well. The staff were efficient and attentive. It was a lovely sunny day so the view of the river was an added attraction.

A pre-wedding party for 20 people, not easy to cater for. However, with per-ordering, all the meals arrived together, which is very good. Good portions on all meals, tasty and mostly well prepared. Private room, well looked after.

There was 7 of us. When we arrived our table was all ready for us with views over the river. Although it was dark it was lovely to catch the lights reflecting in the rippling water. The waitress was attentive and efficient considering everything we might need to make our visit and meal more enjoyable. Our starters arrived and were... More
