Unfortunately when this pub is empty as it was mid afternoon on our visit it looked unkept and drab. The food and service was good but the exterior makes it look uninviting. It has a spectacular location and the overall accommodation is good. Limited menu...More

I don't know where it's sourced, but all food is of a high qualitity. I'm sure if you asked the staff would be able to tell you or ask the chef to find out.

A restaurant with great views of the River Avon on three sides. Proud to sell Herfordshire Beef from our friends at David Dudley's on the menu complimented with an extensive award winning wine list and international beers. We have 2 coach spaces, terraced seating, 100 seat restaurant,lounge area and a large function/conference room with its own balcony, kitchen and bar.
