We had been to the cottage before and we couldn't wait to get back but...The food was okay but there certainly was not enough of it and the menu lacked imagination. The vegetarian dishes were very small, presented on the plate very nouvelle cuisine style, they lacked finesse and flavour (vegetarians do not necessarily have dainty appetites). The game crumble,...

I visited this pub with two friends of mine to have lunch after visiting nearby Hoarwithy church. I am from the area and have known the place for years. It is located off the beaten track, so it is a nice quiet spot to have lunch. First impression when we went in to order the food was terrible. The woman... More

A delightful venue nestled in the wonderful Herefordshire countryside plays host to an excellent lunch and dinner menu, serving seasonal food of a very high standard. I stopped in for lunch with my family recently where the service was very attentive and the food on offer was superb. The ales were well kept and there was also a good cider... More

Ok #1 in Carey is a prized accolade but so far as I could see besides two other cottages and shire horse the pub is the only establishment in Carey. If you think Simon Rogan's L'Enclume in Cartmel is remote, then the CofC is the Ultima Thule of culinary travel. It lies deep in the picturesque Herefordshire countryside and we... More

We were a group of 6 adults and 6 children after a nice Sunday lunch after a big walk, Cottage of content was perfect! The food was excellent. We all had the roasts on offer which were a good size, great meat, and particularly nice parsnips?! The service was more than you would expect in a pub, all staff were... More

We were recommended this pub by the b & b owners and found the staff friendly and the food was really lovely and something a little bit different, it was certainly very popular so we were pleased we have been advised to book in advance.

Food was excellent;(Roast Beef etc) good value for money; service and staff were very good. Beautiful and quite isolated location but it was a sunny day and we sat in the garden and it was a...

Lovely country pub tucked away in the Herefordshire countryside. We went on a Sunday and had a lovely Sunday roast out in the garden - good food, good service and lovely atmosphere. Not much more to ask for.

This is the second time we've visited Cottage of Content. Both times on a day-long cycle ride from Hereford, down the Wye valley. There's something wonderfully inevitable about this place - you come round the corner, after a few hills and there it is; well-kept, inviting and just right for a stop. Thing is about long cycle rides, they reduce... More
