“Excellent stopping place for lunch”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Today on a journey back from Hereford we stopped at this hotel for lunch, cheerful greeting from the receptionist on arrival. Smiling and very pleasant barmaid quickly served our drinks and it was especially good to find Bass bitter on draught, very pleasant pint. We ordered the beef together with a round of brie, bacon and cranberry sandwiches which were served with a very fresh salad and crisps. Excellent sandwiches with very generous fillings both had been clearly freshly made.
Whilst at the hotel we studied the other menus and would most certainly recommend this restaurant to other travellers.

“Excellent food and excellent view to go with”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Service is very prompt, very friendly staff who explain all the menu and special meal of the day. Food is very fresh and tasty, a great variety to choose from. Delicious desserts. Good collection of drinks at the bar and very reasonable prices.

We had a family meal here in the evening. There were seven of us.
The hotel is in beautiful countryside and we sat in the conservatory to dine. It was lovely and clean.
The food was good, nicely presented and good portion sizes. Prices were reasonable.
The service is the only thing that let the evening down, I wouldn't say it was poor but we had to look for staff to serve drinks, then had to ask for menus and we had to ask staff to clear the table between courses. Staff were polite, they were just young and not quite 'on the ball'
We would return here.

“Could do better - has plenty of potential”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Considering the location and service, the food was not as good as it could have been.

The hotel is well set, with stunning views over South Herefordshire (it was a very wet day, so we could not see the full rage of views, but we know this area, and you will not be disappointed with this aspect when the summer does appear (maybe).

Staff are friendly and we didn't feel rushed at any time. Food selection is good, but the quality was not as good as the menu suggested. Fish starter was perfectly acceptable, I had the trio of pork for main, taste was good but was over cooked by about 10 minutes. Dessert order was taken, but they did not have enough of one dish to fulfil the order, disappointing as we were a 6.30 sitting and the restaurant was just starting to fill up.

I would return again, but would like this feedback to be considered.

“Hungry in Hereford”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

The Valley restaurant certainly reflects the Indian heritage and background of the chef. A uniquely Indian twist is given to a number of dishes. Not to everyone's taste but I found it enjoyable. As is common with so many restaurants nowadays, and I am not criticising it, the menu tends to be the same for most of the week unless some other locally sourced ingredients run out. The wine list is adequate as I said in my review of the hotel the house wines ran out and were not available in full until the last night of my stay.
