“Best Sunday lunch ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

We went for Sunday lunch in January and were warmly welcomed by the owners and locals alike. A wood burner made the pub very cosy and dogs are welcome too. The menu is excellent and I have to say that the quality of the Sunday Roast was outstanding - it must be one of the best in the area. Highly recommended local country pub - only wish we had visited more than once.

“Lovely country pub, excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

Wonderful food and beer, friendly service with nothing too much trouble - what more could you want? Just the ticket, as we had driven over 200 miles to spend a short break in the area. Highly recommended!

“A very good proper pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

We were after a good Sunday lunch after a morning walk and this turned out to be a fantastic find. I cannot praise it enough. It is not a gastropub, it's much, much nicer than that. Down to earth, friendly, unpretentious and presses all the right buttons including:

1. Sunday lunch served until 4 pm - this is so important if you're walking as you don't keep having to check the time and hurry people up.

2. Excellent range of good beer - this is also important if you're walking.

3. Faultless Sunday roast - I've rarely had better (also important if you're walking)

4. Wonderful menu which advertises "Team, Coffee and hippy teas"

The place as a whole has a very good vibe - two good bars , a nice looking garden and a large room for big parties that looked great and appeared to be full of people enjoying themselves at three o'clock on a late autumn afternoon.

“Unspoilt Village Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

We were staying in a cottage virtually next door to the Brockweir Inn and were delighted to have found this little gem - a true unspoilt village pub. Excellent choice of beers, good service and quality home cooked food.

“Unspoilt country inn with good food and lovely ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Had Sunday lunch here when spending the weeeknd nearby.

What a find - not really much a profile as yet but the current owners have been there less than a year.It was a pretty run down, though characterful, drinking den unitl they took it on apparenly. It's now a freehouse so I think they bought it and good luck to them. It's a work in progress, so expect to some failry basic standards in the loos,but otherwise it is thoroughly reccomended. There is a lot to do I think 'backstage' (the kitchen seems minute to me) but so far they have resisted any desire to ' do up' the pub, thank goodness. Other than tidying it up and a bit of whitewash on the walls. Result is that it feels like it hasn't changed in a 100 years, a real traditional village pub - flag floors, log fires, wooden settles, great chat and nice atmosphere . And word is getting round. On a Sunday in October most tables were booked for lunch, so plan ahead. Beer is really excellent - at least 4 cask ales including local ones and real cider and draught perry on offer! Food was inventive and delicious. Not quite gastro nonensense, but certainly far more 'pub grub' Sensibly priced and good quality. Its not a place for a garto extravagance, but for a really good, relaxing sunday lunch its a reall winner. Clearly a proper chef is at work. No sign of background music, no fruit machines. Dogs welcome and a pleasant garden. This is the kind of pub every village should have, but sadly so few do these days! Beautifully located on the Offa's Dyke path and Wye Valley walks - so plenaty of opportunites to walk before or after lunch. We will be back
