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.

It is about ten years since we last came here and found it to be excellent under new ownership. Great welcome, bar staff who are really knowledgeable about the local ciders and pork fillet cooked to perfection with sausage and black pudding. Great puddings. Very dog friendly. We liked it so much that we returned the following week and will... More

Been here a few times with some friends who live locally. Food is always well executed with great flavours from local quality produce and some creative combinations. Well delivered local beers and a nice wine selection, staff even went hunting their racks/cellars when asked for a sweet wine on one occasion. Nice cheese ploughmans crafted on request on the last...

We dropped in at the butchers for a last minute supper on Friday evening, the place always has a great buzz about it and the service that we received really was second to none, I had the selection of pork with extra thick gravy which was fantastic!

My husband and I visited whilst on holiday just down the road in Fownhope. This was very convenient for us as we could walk however I do agree with previous reviewers that commented on it's remoteness. This I would state adds to the pubs charm and made us feel incredibly grateful to get a table! The pub itself is classicand... More

This seemingly ramshackle hotel with extra low ceilings and wobbly floors has as good a pub food as you will find. The drive back to Hereford was a challenge, but well worth it. The staff are very good, we loved it

I was in Woolhope researching family history and noticed that of the two pubs in the small village The Butcher's Arms was open for morning coffee so in we popped . Having ordered 2 coffees and two generous and delicious cakes for just over £7 I looked around and it struck me that this was a remote village pub but... More
