I'm not one to use trip advisor but really wanted to on this occasion. We've stayed up in the Ledbury area every new year for the past 4 years and have always walked our dogs around this area. Somehow we only came across this lovely pub last Thursday! We popped in to get some lunch but unfortunately they were fully... More

Really enjoyed our lunch with friends - food as good as always, particularly the chips and the sticky toffee pudding - not at the same time! - service was really friendly and the atmosphere was lovely - Christmas trees, open fire, a mixture of families, groups of friends and couples - will not leave it as long before our next...

As always, fantastic food & fantastic service! Anniversary meal for myself and my husband was made all the more special with a beautiful steak and lovely setting. Thank you for a consistently great meal!

We went with our family who live in Hereford for Sunday lunch. We were given a warm welcome on arrival by the proprietor. We sat in soft, squashy comfortable sofas, next to a log fire. A good start to our experience. The restaurant was packed with diners, but the service was still very good. Having had our drinks in the... More

We had had good reports about the moody cow and had suggested to our parents living in Ross on Wye that we went for a pre Christmas meal. Their response was you won't get a table, they are always fully booked! Well we achieved it today and weren't disappointed! A lovely, friendly atmosphere, attentive host's and staff. The dining areas... More

Superb food and plenty of choice. Not one of our party had a bad word to say. I've driven by loads of times but never been in but I suspect now that we will be visiting again especially if my girlfriend gets her way! Not that I would object much.

I met 6 friends here to enjoy a pre Christmas lunch in Dec 2016. The place had lots of character, was lovely and warm from a well fuelled wood burner, and the food was fantastic. Best comments from the group were for the 3 cheese tart, game pie and the generous cheeseboard. They had some very creative, recycled xmas decorations... More
