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.

Fabulous lunchtime sandwiches

Visited with a group of colleagues for lunch. Great sandwiches on the lunchtime menu with unusual fillings and generous portions. Would visit again.

We came in for the Thursday pizza night. The pizzas were excellent, with lovely thin crispy bases and a far more interesting range of toppings than I expected. Service was quick and friendly.

We had family visiting from Surrey so we wanted to take them to a restaurant that looked the part and served good food. This was an evening meal and we were not disappointed. Great food service & ambience.

Marvellous food, good atmosphere. Really interesting menu, the prune tart dessert was amazing! Very patient with the children and they loved the pork with red onion stuffing.
