We visited this pub/restaurant twice with our friends during a recent long break at a nearby B & B. We made sure that we pre-booked as we have eaten here previously on a few occasions. We were certainly not disappointed - the food was excellent, all local produce and freshly prepared as ordered with a good choice of beer and wine. Staff were extremely friendly and efficient. We look forward to our return next year.

A lovely looking restaurant with an interesting menu and a friendly manager. However, this is meant to be a review about the food. We were happy to wait for the 40 minutes between order and service since we knew things were being cooked to order. My wife's rack of lamb (3 small very pink chops) and vegetables were cold. My duck (which looked lovely) and vegetables were also cold. When we asked to speak to the manager he offered to take the plates back to the kitchen. My wife declined but I accepted. Minutes later he was back. The vegetables beneath the duck were now hot but the duck was still cold. The manager offered us an alternative dish from the menu or a free dessert but by this time we had both lost our appetite. With prices close to the £20 mark per dish you might expect hot food the first time of asking.
At the second time.....We left. Ironically, we had saved this restaurant as a treat for the last night of our holiday. A friend of the landlord, who confronted us with folded arms and death-lock eyeballing said to us, "You won't find any better." We walked back to our rented cottage doubly disappointed; for ourselves and for the people of Herefordshire.

We were on holiday and we had dinner here as a couple with our dog. Often when dining with a dog you can be made to feel unwelcome despite a pub claiming to be dog-friendly, being put in a corner away from other dinners. But not here-We were instantly made to feel welcome, especially our dog who was given lots of fuss and biscuits throughout our meal.

The food was amazing. I'm quite a fussy eater but was spoilt for choice, with a menu that was unusual but not pretentious. The food was beautifully presented, was cooked to perfection and was generous in portion sizes. Usually gastro pubs have stingy portions with 2 carrots and a potato, but not here-there was no skimping on veg or meat.Although the food was a little pricey for a pub, it was worth every penny.

The staff were incredibly friendly, especially our waiter/barman who could not have made us feel more at home.

The overall atmosphere of the pub was lovely too.There's a nice garden, although weather wasn't good enough for us to enjoy,but imagine it's a great place to spend a sunny afternoon.

This pub is amazing in every way and would highly recommend.if we're ever in the area again we will definitely return.
