Hearty fayre

We were staying locally and had stopped here for a drink with our dog. We saw the steak night advertised cooked on the Jasper oven and thought we'd give it a go especially as they said we could bring our lovey Staffie with us. The Wednesday offer was a free bottle of wine with 2 people ordering... read more

We stopped here for a quick spot of lunch. The burgers were great and the chips lovely and crispy. Just what the doctor odered before embarking on another long walk.

We had lunch here on a recent visit to the area. We chose it because of the advertised menu and thought it may be a special treat rather than a bog standard lunch. It's a typical, old school market town hotel with lots of wood, leather and brass in amongst the decor. However the food was sub standard. My chicken... More

This is a convenient place to meet up with friends from other parts of Wales or Hereford. Friendly and welcoming,good service and plenty of room. Choice of formal dining area or more informal bar setting and other spaces in between and the choice is really up to you. Lovely cosy area with sofas which I would love to return to... More

We've eaten here several times and always enjoyed it. Indeed, we've recommended the Castle to others and enthused about the imaginative and tasty menu. This visit was not up to the usual standard perhaps partly because staff seemed to be preoccupied with preparations for a Valentine's Day function. The menu is now less exciting and the quality of the food... More

This is a lovely old pub/hotel with comfy seats and a good choice of ales. Big meals, a starter and a main was almost too much. Not too expensive either. Friendly staff. A beautiful restaurant, providing food of a very high standard.

You'll be spoilt for choice at this restaurant. The menu is great and the cooking matches. Particularly liked the confit of lamb shoulder, an absolute triumph. What else to eat in Wales but lovely lamb!
