A lovely old half-timbered pub in gorgeous countryside 8 miles SE of Hereford and a few miles from Ledbury, Ross and Malvern. Run by chef Stephen Bull. The pub's food is sourced from local ingredients, and there are cask ales and local cider and perry. The Butchers runs regular special food and wine evenings (dates posted on website). Large garden with stream for nice days, two roaring fires in the winter. Separate room bookable for parties. Family and dog friendly. Warm welcome.

As you go into the Butchers,they conveniently have left construction hats for use by tall customers, you'll need them, the beams are so low Snow White and her seven mates need to bend down to miss them!

Brilliant food at this pub that is steeped in history. Would thoroughly recommend the Woolhope Rabbit pie a very tasty dish or the pheasant. Frankly anything on the menu would be a dish to remember. Very relaxing evening served by a lovely waitress.

Delicious food (especially fish) served with a smile and flourish in a warm old pub atmosphere - well worth the detour !! Also has excellent local beer and of course ciders. Mind your head on the low beams (although they are padded).

Had Sunday lunch here for my dads birthday. It was so nice to see a menu on a Sunday that didn't offer just a roast! Everything was brilliant, the food the service, the roaring Fire, the atmosphere & best of all its dog friendly!
