This place does not look much from the outside but we were visiting family nearby and we all went in here of lunch. Inside is much nicer and the barman who did the drink and food orders was very friendly and engaging. Reasonable choice of beer and wines and the food is just basic pub food (think scampi, jacket potatoes,... More

Called in here and we were very impressed. OK it is a chain but it's very very well run. The food is amazingly cheap for the quality. I found it very clean and friendly. Food was hot and tasty and served very quickly. And unlike some other local pubs we had a genuine check back. It amazes me how some... More

I went for a drink with my partner and some friends on the 02/05/2016. To our local, The Monument. On arrival at the bar I was asked for my id. I am 24, I completely understand that it is required by bar staff to "challenge 25", however, I come here so regularly I at the very least thought I would... More

Brilliant pub/restaurant with loads of parking spaces all encircling the pub. We arrived Easter Monday lunchtime and ordered drinks and food and were advised immediately would be about 40 minutes. Great atmosphere with families, TV's and background music but comfortable for talking amongst your selves. We ordered from list of 2 for 9.99 thinking it would be a small meal... More

A friend and I went for lunch here, I wish we hadn't bothered. I understand that lunchtimes get busy, but surely they should be prepared. Whilst waiting 40mins for our lunch to arrive, I witnessed a customer having to move a large box from a table in order for him and his wheelchair bound partner to sit at it. There... More

Went at lunchtime last week.Typical pub grub menu but very acceptable.The service was good and the staff were very pleasant.Like a lot of the "chain" pubs in Hereford they have a good selection of special offers so it is possible to eat reasonably cheaply.I had the shepherds pie and my wife had fish and chips.The Monument is on a par...

To be honest, we came out to enjoy the atmosphere having won the rugby ..... the monument wasn't short of this, but the food left us feeling less than cheery! Very basic food on offer (which was expected), the quality and quantity left a lot to be desired. My husband's gravy in the jug resembled PVA glue and the carrots... More

We are glad you chose to come to us to celebrate the rugby. However I am concerned that you were not happy with the quality of food. I was not made aware of any food issues that evening and would like to know if you fed this back to a team member, giving us the opportunity to resolve. Please feel... More

the place does have some good bar staff, however the manager in charge has an extremely poor sarcastic attitude towards the slightest of complaints, I personally would never eat in there again based upon his attitude. If I could rate the place less than I have I would.

The gentleman you refer to is a hard working loyal regular customer helping out at his local pub and although we didn’t appreciate your comment about putting a penny in his spastic box it was nice to see you did decide to come back after all. More
