This well-established and celebrated rural gastro-pub stands where the wooded ridges of west Herefordshire nudge the Welsh border. Locals congregate in the small bar to chat, snack and drink beers from Ludlow and Wye Valley, and Herefordshire real ciders. The rambling layout incorporates several dining areas, where a starter of Hereford snails, Monmouth ham, mushroom and parsley might be followed by local lamb, rump and slow-cooked shoulder; seabass fillet, shrimps, samphire, courgettes and new potatoes. A specials board extends the options, while Sunday's set lunch could introduce you to Herefordshire beef, with roast topside served with roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. Nearby Chase Distillery provide gins and spirits for cocktails.
