Dear Barberella Could you please confirm when you visited the second time so I can look into this. I am very concerned that apparently your complaint was again ignored by a member of my staff. I clearly need to investigate. I would make one comment...More

Not been here for 10 years, on revisit, very nicely decorated, nice staff. The food was excellent and a nice variety to choose from. I had bubble and squeak that was outstanding. My son had a very nice burger.

Probably OK if you're a local. Not recommended for outsiders, unless you're desperate, willing to pay £9.25 for a sandwich and impervious to a cold reception.

The restaurant offers diners a tasty seasonal menu of the best British cuisine and we can cater for intimate dinners or parties. Our produce is fresh and locally sourced and cooked by Paul for your enjoyment. We offer local ales and cider or choose from our specially selected wine list. In the summer why not enjoy alfresco dining in our garden surrounded by the spectacular Herefordshire countryside. Set in the beautiful rural Herefordshire countryside (an oasis for walkers!) The Loughpool is easily accessible from Ross-on-Wye or Hereford and offers plenty of parking. Well behaved children and dogs are always welcome...
