“Lovely pub with perfect setting”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Very friendly staff, helpful. Great food with best Herefordshire rib eye steak! Comfortable beds with view of the river. Good selection of beer and cider. Perfect for visiting the beautiful countryside. It made our one night away well worthwhile.

Reviewed 9 May 2014

I only have positive things to say about the place. We had a group of 16 for a canoe trip over the 1st May bank holiday weekend in 2014 which I was organising. The owner (Jamie) made my life easy to organise and was an ideal landlord to have - considerate to all of his guests but also hugely (& I mean hugely) accommodating for our big group.

It seemed the pub was popular with people locally, but also with many people passing through giving it a lively and friendly atmosphere.

Accommodation was very reasonable (£15 pp for bunkhouse), and the food and drink well priced and of fine quality (full fry-up breakfast, coffee and orange juice for £6) at pretty much whatever time of the morning suited us.

The location is right overlooking the river, with a large terrace looking down the wooded valley in both directions. The ferry across to the other side is also free for people staying.

All round, a blinder. I will return. In fact, I have decided to go back within the month despite it being the other side of the country!

I stayed here with some friends over the bank holiday weekend, This place was absolutely perfect- a good base for canoeing and walking. The pub has good food, great beers, and an absolute hero of a landlord who could not have been more friendly or welcoming. Couldn't have asked for more, and will be coming back.

I stayed here for one night to break up my journey from the north-east down to Cornwall. I had stayed here 10 years prior and the thought it would be an ideal place to stay as opposed to a travelodge on a motorway!

Despite being later than expected, Jamie and some of his punters gave us a lovely welcome. The room itself was huge and overlooked the beautiful river Wye. I had a great nights sleep followed by a lovely breakfast the following morning.

Jamie kindly provided us with a leaflet showing walking routes. We had a short walk up the river and it's stunning! Symonds Yat is a hidden gem and YOFI is a fantastic place to stay.

Thank you!!

We loved our 3 night stay at this hotel. The view from our bedroom window was worth the stay by itself. The river Wye is beautiful, the building is charming, and there is plenty to do within either walking or easy driving distance. Rooms are simple but comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities. Breakfast and dinner were enjoyable and it was good to eat at the hotel after a busy day's sight- seeing without having to find a restaurant or drive anywhere. All the staff were extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. The manager carried our suitcases for us up and down the narrow, winding stairway, eliminating the only thing that could have been a problem. A more peaceful, comfortable and picturesque place to stay would be hard to find.

Room Tip: I think all rooms overlook the river, but make sure yours does.

We visited this oldie worlde inn on a day out while staying in the Forest of Dean. The manager couldn't have been more friendly. We had our trusty little furry friend Sally the westie with us and she was made most welcome as well. We opted for the Burger meal for our lunch which was really tasty (could have done with a little more salad garnish) but the meat was flavoursome and well cooked. The manager was a friendly knowledgeable fella and very chatty which put us at our ease.
They have a huge verity of local ciders and Beers and are Camera approved.
