Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We are regulars to this hidden gem, and can’t recommend it highly enough. We went as a large party, with a baby who didn’t want to sleep, wheelchairs, high chairs and a huge cake….the food is delicious, and the staff simply couldn’t do enough to...help. They made a special occasion go off with a bang. Whether we go in for a quick coffee, or a quiet lunch, or a large gathering, it’s always 10/10. Great food, great welcome. Get yourself down there!!!More

We visited friends who were staying in LittleTarrington and they booked the Crown and Anchor for us to have lunch. A friendly welcome was offered by the staff and we ordered drinks and were shown to our table. The Sunday lunch menu offered 4 starters...and 4 main courses with a vegetarian option. Our wives both had Roast Turkey, whilst we men both had the Beef (served medium rare),all arrived with Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoe's,carrot's and parsnips, whilst the ladies also had homemade sausage meat stuffing to accompany the turkey, and separate dishes of cauliflower cheese,brocolli and cabbage were delivered as sides. An extra jug of gravy was requested and duly delivered along with horseradish and cranberry sauce. All were polished off and empty plates the order of the day. For dessert 3 of us had apple crumble and custard and 1 of us ate ETON MESS sundae. With a couple of bottles of DOOM BAR 0% alcohol,1/2 lager and a J20 the bill came to a reasonable (inc drinks) about £110. A lovely way to spend an hour or so in a nice country pub, with nice food and genial hosts. We are all hoping to return very soon.More

Very disappointed in the meal. 8 of us went there last night as a birthday celebration. Three of us ordered Steak salad & the other Chicken Caeser salad. The 4 men's orders were very good & the 2 desserts they had after were good. Sadly...can't say the same for our salads! £17.95 for 4 strips of steak,lettuce leaves,a few bits of pepper & cucumber & some cherry tomatoes. The other 2 steak salads had 6/7 strips of steak(I was unlucky with 4 strips). With that came a small pot of blue cheese dressing which helped a little to lift the 'salad'! The Chicken salad had even less salad- 7 pieces of lettuce & handful of croutons! Honestly, to be charged £17.95 for that - was not value for money. Had it not been such a special occasion I probably would have complained on the night.More

On a recommendation, family booked Sunday lunch (28/8). Sadly, the quality of the food was very poor. Quantity of the roast beef was fine, but extremely tough. Indeed, the chef must have been aware when slicing?? Vegetables/potatoes were bland and undercooked. Waiting staff were very...pleasant and efficient, but 'the kitchen' let the let the team down.More

The accommodation booked by me and my motorcycling buddy was too far from Hereford easily to walk into the City. We were, therefore, delighted to find this pub in the local village, a ten minute walk across open fields. Of the three evenings we stayed,...we ate and and drank in the C&A for two of them. We were made very welcome in the buzzy atmosphere, full of locals. The beer and cider was perfectly kept and the food, a good choice of pun favourites, was beautifully cooked.More

First impressions as you walk in are that you are stepping back in time and with a group of old farmers propping up the bar. But once you get over that cliquey feel and the odd long stares, it's actually quite a pleasant place, with...a really nice garden area. Food wise, I had the Mushroom Tagliatelle which was absolutely delicious, and surprisingly authentic tasting. Definitely one of the better pubs on the outskirts of the city and to see it so busy midweek is an indication of its quality, though a slightly friendlier group of staff (a smile would go a long way) would be preferred.More

A really lovely welcoming pub- we are not near enough to be 'locals', but if we were nearer, it would be a regular for us. Really lovely staff who clearly enjoy what they do, a good menu and well-kept ale.

Evening meal inadequate. Fish cake starter was virtually all potatoe and overcooked. Rump Steak sent back as it was cold, but was replaced, but overpriced. Stilton and Port sauce was too runny and not reduced enough, so too sharp. Salad garnish was wilted slightly yellow...and bitter. Chips overdone and tasted of old oil. Steak and Ale pie was overly herb tasting and came with peas when asked for mixed vegetables. One pudding sent back as was cold and main course curry was way too salty and ended up with person sharing another’s food. Didn’t complain too much as was trying to avoid the hassle on an evening out with children, but won’t visit again. Put an awkward feel on evening as expensive for the quality we had, and put up with it as had limited time. Service was slow and waitress not clued up on puddings. More checks before for food leaves kitchen and taste what they’re sending recommended. Disappointed to leave this kind of review as have enjoyed food here in the past, and it’s a cosy pub with friendly people and a good atmosphere, but food is lacking unfortunately.More

Trying not to be put off by some of the below comments as I can only write about our experience. Disappointed to hear about the couple that didn't have very good treatment there 🌈 (Dec 2022 comments). Had I read this before, it would have...put me off! In our experience, food lovely and friendly service given. Food came out really quickly and was very hot. Welcome on a snowy night outside. Lovely country pub with nice warm fire. Highlights on the menu were the triple cooked chips, halloumi curry and cheesecake of the day.More

Average meal. My opinion based on the fact we paid £50 for food that wasn't hot enough, over cooked vegetables, tasteless gravy served in the tiniest gravy jug ever, lack of table service, no meal checks. Shame as it is quite a lovely pub..!!
