Lovely to hear when the reviews do their stuff, never that easy to sell yourself the real visitors make all the difference, a real feather in the cap for trip advisor!

Came upon this place by chance, had a coffee, and promised myself we’d go back for a meal. And I’m very glad we did, the scotch eggs are great. Everything is freshly prepared, the decor is best described as ‘shabby chic ‘. The staff are...More

Many thanks, think maybe its the passion within the team that makes the difference, simple recipes made to order with good quality fresh ingredients, sometimes we can be perceived to be a little slow but delighted to hear its worth while!

We only just discovered Nest this summer (I always previously assumed it was a garden centre) and it is wonderful! Beautiful and eclectic furniture from Posterity, really friendly staff and the best food and drinks - pizza nights are a particular favourite.

The nest really is one of a kind, a local produce store and deli, a relaxed family friendy cafe, an RHS gold winning plant centre, delightfully architectural antiques, PYO fruit in season and lots of easy walks and trails around 12 acres of Herefordshire. Three miles west of the picturesque market town of Ledbury. Imaginatively furnished, light and airy children and dogs all welcome A great place to stop off, enjoy a cup of coffee and a piece of cake, linger over a leisurely lunch, browse the paper over brunch and to stock up on daily essentials or pick up a gourmet treat to make someones day.
