What a fabulous place this is!!! Staying with 13 friends at the Little Longstone Barns just a few hundred yards away the excellent staff brought a full curry buffet for us to enjoy "at home" on our first night and on our 2nd night the food we enjoyed in The Packhorse was well worth driving a good distance out of your way. Ample portions, warm, cosy and fun atmosphere, DELICIOUS LOCALLY SOURCED< BEAUTIFULLY COOKED food. Friendly locals, excellent hosts, I couldn't praise this pub/restaurant enough. Their service made our whole weekend. Go!!

The staff and locals at the Packhorse were so welcoming and entertaining! Our hen party took over this small but perfectly formed country pub for a weekend and we couldn't have asked for more. Great food, fab service and no problem with serving us our drinks in the bone china tea cups we had brought with us!! Loved the sing-song with the guitar and the trombone playing!!

Friendly busy village pub, stone floor, open fires, simple furniture. If you are looking for a modern elagently furnished dining establishment serving predictable food, then ths place is not for you.

On the other and if you want excellent food made from the finest local produce thats different, served without fuss in a down to earth friendly environment, with good quality real ale, then this is the place for you. Beers come from the local brewer Thornebridge: Jaipur IPA 5.9% & Lord Marples 4.0% both in excellent condition. There was also Whie Swan and Blacksheep. CAMRA GBG listed.

Good selection of starters & mains with a specials board too. We had a pint of prawns, lamb steak, duck confit and a delightful chocholate & almond pudding - all excellent. So many good things to choose from, that you'll find you'll need to return again and again to try them all.

Take your time here, give yourself time to enjoy the food and service, let the busy world out side pass you by for a while.

Extensive and imaginative menu with much locally sourced meat and veg. Ale from brewery within walking distance down the Wye valley. Get there early or book, due size of place.
