Average pub food, with a MASSIVE menu - which makes you wander about the freshness. Portions were good and the bar lively.

Arrived late to our B&B and decided to give this place a shot since we were near and hungry! We did not get a table near the river Wye:(. We ordered drinks and food and being near the bar our drinks came promptly. The food took a long time... Once it came it was plentiful and tasty.

a group of us were canoeing from the week from Glasbury to Symonds Yat and decided to walk to this pub for some food from our campsite. The pub is nothing special but is a place that is very popular with canoeists at the weekend. The menu was basic and the food was hearty and just what was needed after... More
