“Wonderful Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Visited this pub for an evening meal after recommendations from others who rented the same cottage we were using. Very quaint pub, tucked away down some narrow roads. Made to feel very welcome and the service was friendly and efficient. The food was excellent. Had the ribeye steak which was the tastiest steak I have had in a long time.
Although it was a Wednesday evening, the pub was very busy. We hadn't booked and were still made welcome but would recommending booking particularly at a weekend.
Wine was reasonably priced and served at the perfect temperature.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

I had visited the Cottage of Content several times before and enjoyed the experience. However I had not been for about three years, and I was very disappointed with the experience. The food which I remembered as excellent, was just OK, with one of the dishes (lamb crumble) quite poor. The service was terrible, we waited an hour for our main course. Won't be going there again.

“Wonderful food in a great setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Good place to stop and enjoy a beer and a meal after a long walk. Historic black and white pub with stone flag floors, very busy, so may need to book.

“Lovely Herefordshire pub with great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Had lunch here before visiting the Laskett Garden - worth the slight detour down narrow lanes. This pub is in an idyllic setting, is quiet, welcoming and charming and has really good food at reasonable prices. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it - the ladies serving us were efficient and friendly and we hads to tear ourselves away to go to the gardens. I will definitely be back!
