We visited on a Sunday early evening when the restaurant was serving a pizza and bar snack menu. Food was really good, the staff were helpful and friendly. As we were staying locally in self catering accommodation we recommend visited on Wednesday for fish and chip night. Excellent quality and, again, really helpful staff. Definitely worth a visit.

We were staying in he area for my Mum's 80th birthday. The website for the Mill Race looked enticing enough that we booked for 6 of us for an evening meal. We were not disappointed.

We visited The Mill Race for Sunday lunch whilst on holiday in the local area. We received a warm welcome and the service was excellent. The food - slow cooked beef and pork belly - was divine. It was one of the best Sunday lunches we have eaten in a while. Would thoroughly recommend.

Today my Wife and I visited The Mill Race at lunch time.What a disaster, as they did not have a suitable vegetarian, nourishing meal choice, just Aubergines et al. She had to have fish and chips for a special wedding anniversary meal main course. How disappointing. They forgot to bring the "paid for" prosecco drink. After asking for it, we... More

Dear Derek Foxy, A Travelzoo voucher is certainly a lovely value for money gift for your special anniversary and the Mill Race is a favourite venue for folk celebrating important milestones. Please remember when dining out and wishing to have a large vegetarian selection it is often best to call ahead and arrange a choice of dishes, especially if you... More

What a lovely surprise to revisit this fab gastro pub after its re-furb and face lift. The food was great - tasty, filling and local. No skinny portions here. Well dressed salads and proper chips were just right with our perfectly cooked steaks - well done chef ! With helpfully and attentive staff who seemed really interested to see we... More

We went for an early dinner midweek in the school holidays. The team were incredibly welcoming and accommodating; from Pork Belly to Lamb Shank and Fish Grill we all enjoyed our meals and the one small hiccough with our order was rectified quickly and with minimal fuss. Thanks for looking after us and our smaller diners.

We'd not planned for anything other than to find a nice pub as we were nearby to pick up a trailer load of lawn tractor spares we bought on eBay! We'd just had time to Google it before we left and weren't really expecting anything when we wandered in wearing our scruffies. It became clear that this place was more... More

A relaxed, informal village pub set in the Wye Valley just 3 miles from Ross-on-Wye and 6 miles from Monmouth. Owned and managed by people who are passionate about the freshest of produce and food, wine and fine ales - nearly all of our produce is sourced from within 30 miles of Walford, some even comes from our very own farm! Being positioned on the borders of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire we are surrounded by wonderful producers. Our regularly changing menus ensure we make the most of local produce with our focus on simple food cooked well.
