The Riverside Inn

AYMESTREY, nr Leominster, HR6 9ST

Built in 1580, this character inn started catering to the passing sheep drovers in 1700; it's midway along the Mortimer Trail, just by the ford across the River Lugg. All the country pursuits are here: choose between 10 circular walks and look out for otters, kingfishers, herons and deer on the way. The wood-panelled interior with low beams and log fires makes a cosy setting for the enjoyment of ales such as Wye Valley Butty Bach and Hobsons Best; ciders include Westons and Robinsons. The pub's vegetable, herb and fruit garden is the source of many ingredients for the seasonal menus - Shropshire ham hock terrine, pickled apple relish and caramelised walnuts might precede seared freshwater trout fillet, parsley and almond gremolata and cauliflower purée; Heritage carrot, Monkland cheese and leek risotto; or slow-cooked Herefordshire beef, oxtail sauce, smoked mash and salt-baked shallots.
