We had heard good reports of the newly managed restaurant/pub here so a friend and I booked a table for Sunday Lunch in early April and were given a friendly welcome and a great table downstairs in a corner of the bar area.
The Old Water Mill is set in manicured grounds - and on one of Herefordshire's quieter roads. They've even been along and filled in some of those pot-holes!
I was pleased that the Real Ale on offer was from Wye Valley Brewery, my favourite local Brewery. My friend ordered a G&T. We ordered a bottle of Chilean Merlot to have with our lunch which we found to be very palatable. Roast Turkey for me and Roast Beef for my friend. The waiter brought out good hot food on nice hot plates. That’s what I like, hot plates! It came with a good selection of vegetables, a Yorkshire pudding which wasn’t too large and hot gravy.
We gave ourselves a bit of a rest before ordering pudding, which of course we didn’t need but had to have! All puddings are made on the premises, none of your bought in puddings here. My friend’s Sticky Toffee Pudding with Ice Cream was large and delicious. My cheesecake made with White Chocolate and Bailey’s liqueur went down very well too!
Verdict: Good food, served hot, friendly host, pleasant surroundings, competitively priced. We would definitely visit again.
