We recently visited for a meal when staying in the area. The food was very very nice and highly recommended. Particularly loved the bread and butter pudding. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Will happily go back if in the area.

Country inn on the River Lugg. Although using an offer, the full menu was available. First class food in traditional surroundings.

Not sure as I have only used a taxi once locally - I think it was a Leominster-based taxi firm. I seem to remember it was about £30 to go not very far, so be ready for a hefty bill. I presume the cost is higher because of... More

Aymestrey���s The Riverside Inn and Restaurant is nestled in the Herefordshire countryside, where the Roman Watling Street crosses the meandering River Lugg. Amongst trees where butterflies flutter and dragonflies buzz, The Riverside Inn is an old black and white timbered building full of original features - oak beams, log fires, exposed stone - dating back more than three hundred years. Warm and full of character, this is a typically British inn with an excellent line in local ales, countryside perries and ciders as well as a number of European and New World wines selected as accompaniments to the fine dining food produced by the kitchen���s award winning chefs. Committed to supporting local producers and suppliers from the rich larder of the surrounding counties, The Riverside Restaurant is proud to be local - even hyper-local in some cases with herbs and vegetables often taken from the inn���s very own garden - and as such dishes are created to showcase the best seasonal ingredients. Every item is freshly cooked just meters from your table and every taste and requirement is catered for with excellent vegetarian options as well as good choices for coeliacs and non-dairy eaters.
