Camped here for two nights. Strictly two man tents only and no cooking. Fantastic river side location, beautiful views, easy to store your canoe/kayak. The food is unbelievably good. Relatively good choice of drinks. Friendly staff. Bank holiday entertainment was really good. Rooms need updating...More

Restaurant located by the River Wye. Very friendly people and good hearty meals. Pub noisier at the weekend - perhaps not the place for a romantic meal out, but clean and pleasant.

We visited with our friends and had a lovely Sunday lunch. They offer a smaller roast meal, which was just perfect for smaller appetites. There was lots of fresh vegetables and the lamb was very tasty. We'll definitely be back. The staff are very friendly...More

We visited for light Saturday lunch. Sat outside under cover with a great view of the river and bridge leading into Ross. The food was really good and judging by what we could see that other people had ordered, it all looked equally as good....More

We visited based on good Tripadvisor reviews. We received table service, food was excellent value and to a very high standard. Outside seating was overlooking the river, although we sat inside in the warm. We hope to visit again.
