Just returned from Ross on Wye on a weeks holiday. We found this beautiful pub/restaurant after a recomondation left in our rented cottage. WOW glad we went there for our Sunday lunch. The food was fantastic as was the service and the staff. If in the area I strongly recommend a visit......FAB .

Have been to the tapas evening at The Cottage of Content, several times now & each time it has been brilliant! Excellent tasty tapas which is also excellent value. Well worth trying! The stuffed deep fried olives are to die for!

Very quiet location with great food and quick service. We ate outside and the garden is lovely. The food is modern and very well cooked and presented.

We went here for lunch on Tuesday 28th while visiting old family friends. Lovely location and nice pub, waiting staff (....those that were still there) were courteous and pleasant. It was not busy, but we immediately noticed what I always take as a warning sign in that they were advertising for about four types of staff including 2nd chef, kitchen... More

This pub-restaurant's business card announced a "Chef Proprietor", who was not present on our visit. The menu seemed to mostly comprise either pre-cooks or Ready Meals and what we had were clearly one or the other. Not cheap either. Disappointing.

First the good points : it's worth finding this place. Nice rural out of the way place. Decent beers. The food is good, The bad : food expensive for what it is. Portions quite small and veg is extra. All the tables are set for eating. The only place to sit to have a drink is at the bar, or... More

This restaurant has an excellent reputation with the local community. I decided to go with my partner and parents to celebrate my 22nd birthday. The pub is beautifully quaint with thick beams and a wonderful feature clock. The food is very good quality and clearly locally sourced. My other half went absolutely nuts over the cauliflower cheese soup they were... More

A warm friendly welcome in a nice cozy environment. Great menu choices. Four of us each had 3 courses which were cooked beautifully. Both the roast beef and the pork belly with black pudding stuffing were excellent and accompanied by plenty of delicious veg.
