Booked for a family meal. 3 of us orders steak, all cooked differently, all came out rare! I cut into my steak and discovered a hair so sent it back, it was returned to me several minutes later and when I turned my 'new' steak upside down there was my original cut! They simply flipped it over thinking I wouldn't... More

After being very disappointed at a different pub, we left and ventured here on Christmas eve. We received very good service and the food along with the portion sizes were brilliant. Always a welcoming place to visit.

took my mum out for lunch following a shopping trip in Hereford. Pub was as usual clean and tidy. The landlord is a bit of a character. Food and service was without fault, I failed to get to dessert. This pub continues to deliver each time I visit it plus who can fault sitting looking out on the river Wye

Visited late on Friday night to a warm welcome and good food at reasonable prices. Large portions. Dog friendly and very accommodating staff. It was dark but we could see the lovely little river at the side of the pub- it would be perfect on a summers day. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the area if you want a... More

All restaurants have menus and, if you are like me, you can usually find a couple of three things you might like to scoff. Well, if you can whittle this lot down to fewer than fifteen "possibles" you must be a fussy eater! Everything appealed and everything delivered. It floated our boat - had to go two nights running to... More

The food is beautiful, the staff are courteous and extremely helpful and the view over the river Wye and beyond is gorgeous. Also the locals are great fun with their many tales of life in the country.
