Had a lovely evening here after walking through the forest from brace lands campsite, it was great to watch the sun disappear over the hills and the lights from the houses opposite twinkle on the Wye,as for the food it was nice as was the beer and wine.

Staying locally, we decided to try this pub. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was piping hot and delicious. The garden looked amazing although we didn't venture out there. Dog friendly and play area for the younger children. The only criticism was that the conservatory/restaurant was boiling. Door into the garden wasn't opened and although the small... More

The food was freshly cooked, well presented and good, we had a really excellent... More

Decided to go to this pub for an evening meal as it was located near our holiday cottage and had read reviews previously on this site. Children's meals were very good value and large in size and their ice creams were brilliant - 3 scoops of ice cream. All of the children enjoyed the play area outside. Our meals were... More

After a long and enjoyable day canoeing on the river Wye, 6 of us decided on the New Inn at Shortstanding for a well earned bite to eat..perhaps at this stage I should say chew. The pub was busy and we had a 20 minute wait at the bar before we were served. I ordered the ribeye steak cooked medium... More
