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.

A good pub with a really nice menu.

A group of 9 of us went to the Mill Race for dinner and we had a really good time. The beer is great, the wine selection extensive and the food is locally sourced and very tasty. I had a warm scotch egg to start which was very nice and then Fish & Chips with mushy peas. The fish was... read more

6 of us went out for lunch to celebrate a family members birthday. The Sunday lunch menu offered a good choice and the portion sizes were large. I couldn't finish my meal and I only had one course. Food was excellent, staff very friendly and atmosphere very pleasant. Will go back there when I'm in the area again.

Simple menu, fresh, locally sourced produce. A good wine list with a range of options to suit different budgets. Well cooked food, nicely presented. Efficient, very friendly staff who were attentive but not intrusive. Well worth a visit. Looking forward to trying the pizzas when the weather is better

We had a fabulous evening here with great food, attentive but not intrusive service which was delivered at a comfortable pace. One of best places we have eaten out at in some time. All locally sourced food too. What more can you want.

The food here is second to none - we ate here twice (as there are not many places to eat in this area) Once was a great meal and the next was 'okay'- the thing that lets it down is the service which is slow and not very professional.

This is probably one of the best places to eat in Ross on Wye/ Forest of Dean area. Well worth booking. We met family for a Sunday lunch time meal. So rare not to be forced to eat traditional Sunday Roast !!

This was a memorable meal - delicious combination of flavours and well presented, but we found the menu difficult to follow as the proprietors had used their own notation to show which allergens were present - e.g. C for cereal present, rather than the usual GF for a dish that was gluten free. Sadly for the establishment, we were the... More

We ate at the Mill Race on Sat 27 June as a celebration and the food was great and service pretty good. In general the food is really very good there but this time we were a little disappointed, but didn't want to say anything to staff as overall it didn't really impact our enjoyment and after the focaccia incident...
