More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: An undiscovered and stunning part of The Black Mountains on the edge of The Brecon Beacons National Park but really worth the trip into the beautiful Craswall (Monnow Valley Walk) valley for some truly home produced, home cooked food. The specialities are the farms own Hereford beef & Lleyn lamb dishes, as it is a working family farm where the meat is reared naturally on lush green grass and fresh mountain spring water. White Haywood Farm is just over the mountain top from Llanthony Priory where England meets Wales(Offas Dyke path)then a hop, skip'n'jump through the Olchon Valley to Craswall also only 8 miles from Hay-on-Wye & 17 from the Cathedral city of Hereford & the market town of Aberegavenny.

Great hearty home cooked meals in a family-owned and run farm restaurant serving up the freshest ingredients and home-reared meat, home-grown veg. Excellent value for money, too -- and matchlessly friendly and warm service. Great local feel. Local knowledge. Highly recommended!

My partner and i travelled to Hereford to visit friends and i stumbled across Haywood Farm after many hours of searching the internet and ringing around for a one night stay something very hard to find in the area, Pauline was very happy to have us one night though.

After a some what worrying journey, driving for about 1 hour down country lanes on the red petrol light, yes entirely our own fault, Pauline was quick to make us feel at home and provided a much needed hot drink and somewhere to relax by the roaring log burning stove before phoning a nearby garage to see if the owner would stay open to late to serve us some petrol. After free wheeling through the valley we arrived on fumes to be greeted by Mr Wildings and his museum style pumps!

The food selection on the menu is great, both my boyfriend would have happily had all but one of the dishes which was fish and neither of us eat fish so this is not a reflection on the menu at all. For starters we had black pudding made by a local butcher using the Farm's animals and it was delicious. My boyfriend's main course was home made beef pie, which was filled completely to the top with very tender beef. My main was pork in a creamy sauce with mushrooms and it was excellent. The mains were accompanied by a large selection of fresh vegetables, new potatoes and chips!

Both of us were too full for dessert but next time i am in the area i'm calling in for the sticky toffee pudding!

For breakfast we had a selection of cereals, toast and a full cooked breakfast, we headed off very full. Many thanks to Pauline for all her hospitality.

We would recommend this place for meals alone or for B&B accomodation which is also excellent and a home from home. Kitted out to a very high standard and tastefully decorated in a modern style yet retains the charm of an old barn which orginal features such as large wooden beams running throughout.

We ate here every night of our recent stay at the attached B&B and found the food, service and atmosphere unbeatable value. I had forgotten how good beef, pork, lamb and gammon could taste with a wide variety of fresh (repeat fresh) vegetables. It really is "home cooking" and my only regret is that I struggled to find room for a dessert! Nevertheless, it was I sacrifice I simply had to make!

We booked this reastaurant to celebrate my parents 60th Wedding anniversary - 17 of us in total. Pauline and Philip couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. The food was superb! Much of the meat on the menu is sourced from their farm and you can definitely taste the difference! Homemade puddings add to the dining experience. Pauline also does a take away/ eat in Fish and Chip night on Thursdays. These were without doubt the best fish and chips we have had in a long time! Super place!
