A group of 6 of us stayed here after canoeing from Ross to Symonds Yat. Nice comfortable rooms, great beer, great food, great atmosphere and a good night's sleep and all at a very reasonable price for a tourist area like Symonds Yat. What more can I say - well recommended!

After a long(ish) walk we stopped at this Wye riverside pub for some lunch. We sat outside and watched the canoes going by - very relaxing. The lunch was great and the staff were excellent. Highly recommended.

I was wanting an early afternoon/evening meal but unfortunately the kitchen did not open until 6.30. The result was I 'had' to have extra drinks waiting for this. Anyway, once ordered the... More

We visited for an evening meal and were amazed with the choice on the menu. A beautiful old inn with a fresh look and lovely riverside setting. The food did take a while to come but is worth the wait and with views like this it's no hardship. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing atmosphere with yummy food.
