We visited the Chase on a hot Friday evening as we fancied sitting outside for a nice meal. The revised terrace (last year) was perfect, lovely view and nice chilled out atmosphere. The choices on the bar menu, including specials was great. We ended up having 3 courses and didn't regret it at all - the meal was really excellent, especially the pudding!
Service was really good, very attentive and polite.
A few points of note:
When we ask for rare steak, we mean rare. The meat was really tasty but it wasn't even really pink - it was definitely medium if not a little more. Please can UK chefs learn what rare means and cook the meat properly? It would have merited an excellent had the steak been cooked as requested
It is a massive pity that the bar only offers boring big brewery lager and bitter - with a heritage in beer making as good as Herefordshire, massive shame nothing from a local brewery is available and would have thought guests would appreciate it very much.
The menu would be a little better if it looked at where the food is sourced, as many local good pubs and hotels do well to let you know where food is local - its really useful and is an attractive feature if you can source your food locally and advertise the fact, and great to see hotels supporting local farmers and businesses.
