A relaxed, informal village pub set in the Wye Valley just 3 miles from Ross-on-Wye and 6 miles from Monmouth. Owned and managed by people who are passionate about food, nearly all of our produce is sourced from within 30 miles of Walford, some even comes from our very own farm! Being positioned on the borders of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire we are surrounded by wonderful producers. Our regularly changing menus ensure we make the most of local produce with our focus on simple food cooked well.

Service and style

I returned to the Mill Race last week with friends and we enjoyed a relaxed lunch - we stuck to the set lunch which was very reasonably priced and all enjoyed our meals, which were well cooked and presented. The service was attentive and pleasant and we will all return!

We had a family Christmas day lunch here and we will certainly do it again. Easy going, relaxed and excellent service and cuisine.Why would you want to have dinner at home on Christmas day with all the stress (and washing up) when you can come here. Mick & Carol Cordell

My husband and I visited this pub sometime ago and said that we would be back. Well, I am so glad we did. We were made to feel welcome as soon as we walked in.

Our second visit to The Mill Race whilst staying with friends in the area. We enjoyed a superb three course Sunday lunch and have to say I couldn't fault the food, staff or surroundings. It ticks all of the boxes as far as vague for money goes as well. Wine recommendations on the menu for each course is another great... More

We went for lunch on a quiet weekday and most of the food we had was excellent. My husband particularly enjoyed his warm scotch egg starter, which was cooked to perfection with a nice runny yolk. The beautifully presented winter salad was also lovely with lots of interesting ingredients. The highlight of the meal for me was the ginger parkin,... More

Went for a lunch with my girlfriend. The food was OK, she had a steak, I had battered haddock. The thing that let it down slightly was the fact that there was a live maggot or caterpillar (I'm not sure which) in my tartar sauce. Obviously they replaced the tartar sauce but I'd pretty much finished the meal by then.... More

We went on Sunday evening and they had had a busy day.
