Temple Bar Inn receiving their award
The Temple Bar Inn, Ewyas Harrold, Herefordshire

Painstakingly restored, this handsome building was first licensed in the 1850s, but it has also served as a court house, a corn exchange, a school room and a stable. Today, it is very much the hub of the village community. The three smart bedrooms are well equipped for the modern guest – each has a TV, free WiFi and tea- and coffee-making facilities – and are complemented by stylish en suite bathrooms.

There is a bustling bar area with oak beams, flagstone floors, comfy leather armchairs and a welcoming fire lit on cooler days; it is all too easy to linger a while with a pint of a local cider or ale. What was once the stable is now their 30-seater restaurant where the award-winning, weekly-changing menus offer quality, seasonal dishes based on local-sourced ingredients. As the inn is just a few miles from the Welsh border, it proves a popular pit-stop for walkers and cyclists who are exploring the Herefordshire Trail and glorious Black Mountains.
