Had a pre- Christmas Sunday lunch here. The trustworthy Good Pub Guide had made it pub of the year nationally so worth travelling the country miles to sample a very good Sunday lunch. Atmospheric gastro pub with good choice of ales and ciders. We enjoyed starters of soup and a tian of crab and prawns followed by belly pork and... More

Lovely rustic location in a rural idyll. However, the lack of investment in the property was immediately obvious on arrival. Our small, rather 'pokey' room had outdated furniture in various states of neglect. No shower in the bathroom and NO hot water in the bath!! Also no wifi - fairly standard these days. The main dining area just looked shabby... More

Over the past few months 'the cottage' has become a regular eating destination for me. A lovely cosy little gem nestled in the Herefordshire countryside. Fantastic food, lovely real fires and a nice atmosphere.

Family Christmas in Hoarwithy. Having regaled my husband, father in law and step-son with memories of my childhood in Hereford and knowledge of local pubs I took them to the "Cottage" as it was one of my favourite pubs back in the day. What a joy that the current owners have continued the high standard of food, service and the... More

We visted the Cottage on a warm day in August with some occasional lunchtime dining friends. Sitting in the small garden at the front of the Cottage is simply the perfect bucolic experience. The dining area is smart and traditional, an excellent combination. The lunch menu was varied and offered the opportunity to try some unusual dishes. Good value for... More

Went for Sunday Lunch last weekend. Herefordshire Roast Beef, just perfect. Good local real ale & reasonably priced wine list. Need to book a table for Sunday. Back soon

My wife and I recently enjoyed a meal and overnight stay at the Cottage of Content - a birthday treat which was very much enjoyed by us both. It's straightforward to find once you know how - just three miles or so off the A49, and to say that it nestles in deepest Herefordshire would really be an understatement! So,... More

Quaint Grade 2 listed building full of character in the middle of no where, housing the most amazing restaurant, where quality and taste is guaranteed. Husband & wife team operated, everything is done to please the customer. The menu offers great choices and is excellent. My partner choice the special of the day (fish) whilst I went for the blade...

My wife and I ate here last night and were not disappointed. We booked using a Travelzoo voucher off the back of it being voted Country Pub Of The Year 2017. The food was really good, with a great selection of beers and wines and the service was first class. We sat next to a roaring log fire, which made... More

I had visited here about 18 months ago and had regaled my wife with tales of how good the food was and the great charm of the place. We both went back with the same friends and were not disappointed. Atmosphere wonderful, food fabulous, just the right portion size, you want more but feel you have not got the room.... More
