With over 50 varieties of scotch egg, we just had to visit - really really nice. Thankfully they do home delivery too so next time we’ve got friends coming round for an evening we may make an order. Definitely to be visited.

What a magical, whimsical place. The restaurant meanders up and down, inside and out, with no apparent unity of style or seating, yet making for intimacy and comfort. Why no mention in reviews for the Nest Tapas for Two? An artists palette of two large...More

The nest really is one of a kind, a local produce store and deli, a relaxed family friendy cafe, an RHS gold winning plant centre, delightfully architectural antiques, PYO fruit in season and lots of easy walks and trails around 12 acres of Herefordshire. Three miles west of the picturesque market town of Ledbury. Imaginatively furnished, light and airy children and dogs all welcome A great place to stop off, enjoy a cup of coffee and a piece of cake, linger over a leisurely lunch, browse the paper over brunch and to stock up on daily essentials or pick up a gourmet treat to make someones day.
