Arrived here after walking nearby on a Saturday lunchtime, not expecting much and then were treated to a delightful culinary experience in a sunny and very pleasant beer garden (complete with fairy glen and a huge aviary) Only slight grumble would be that the lunchtime menu is the same as the dinner menu, and whilst we would have liked a...

Thank you for your review We welcome your valid input Although we appreciate some people would prefer a sandwich or baguette we find the majority of our customers like to have a lighter lunch using starters with side orders, New dishes appear daily with the changing seasons and a lot of our main courses can be halved to a light...

We had visited the butchers before, about 3 to 4 years ago and hadn't had a chance to come back until now. Despite the fact it had changed hands during this time, you'd never have known, except for a few things, all good! The bar and restaurant service was excellent, really swift but both girls serving had the same great... More

Our first visit to this really great place, set just on the edge of Woolhope. I had a wonderful meal (veggie option) and my partner had a steak. The flavours and quality of the food was top notch. The Lemon Possett was an delight.

Watch your head on the fine beams and don't get dazzled by the well furnished, fragrant toilets. It's the food you must savour. Enjoy and pay up. It's good value and really tasty

Saw an advert for this place in The Ultimate Herefordshire Guide and wow was it worth the journey. We had That fish cakes and whitebait to start, whitebait were beautifully fresh in tempura type batter not those awful dried out breadcrumb ones you sometimes get. Pork tenderloin and tempura red mullet/king prawns for mains both beautifully cooked, lovely veg, and... More

The Butchers Arms was so good we visited 3 times over the Auguat Bank Holiday weekend and every time was a great experience. Our first choice in choosing where to eat was the fact that the Butchers arms is dog friendly. What made it special was everything from the genuinely warm welcome (including a dog biscuit for our four legged... More

The Butcher's Arms is well off the beaten track in Rural Herefordshire, near the village of Woolhope. Although we only live a 30 minute drive away we had not tried it until a couple of years ago after recommendation by a friend. The present owners have only been there for 3 years and have turned it into a place where... More

On a short trip to Herefordshire we were taken to the Butchers Arms by a local - we certainly wouldn't have found it by ourselves. I can only say that the journey was worth it. The menu was varied and we all had something different - the liver was particularly good it certainly melted in the mouth. Our desserts also... More

This was our first trip to the Butchers Arms, the staff were very welcoming and we were pleasantly surprised by the varied menu. I recommend the Roast Beef, delicious, plentiful and cooked as you like it. Other reviewers have mentioned the low beams and how dark it is.. Well its an 18th century building, kind of goes with the territory!... More

Description
A lovely old half-timbered pub in gorgeous countryside 8 miles SE of Hereford and a few miles from Ledbury, Ross and Malvern. Run by chef Stephen Bull. The pub's food is sourced from local ingredients, and there are cask ales and local cider and perry. The Butchers runs regular special food and wine evenings (dates posted on website). Large garden with stream for nice days, two roaring fires in the winter. Separate room bookable for parties. Family and dog friendly. Warm welcome.
