This dog friendly pub in the heart of Hereford was great for a recent lunch stop. Staff were very helpful making sure our dog had fresh water. Food prices were average and the food itself was very tasty. My hunters chicken came heaped up on...a big plate consisting of chicken breast, parmaham. Melted cheese and a thick BBQ gravy along with fresh veg and rustic new potatoes. Certainly a meal with a twist and very nice. Well worth a try if your in this area.More

Booked tables for 13 of us to watch the football -n the beer garden. Fantastic atmosphere, great attentive staff, good beer and delicious food. We had cheese and meat platter (amongst other things) and loved it. Cheese dip to die for (chef's secret recipe). Landlord...is a great guy + warm and friendly welcome.More

Unremarkable pub from the outside but the food was amazing. I went for the salmon burger (sound unusual but go with it) and my hubby went for the chefs curry. Prompt service and friendly staff too.

With no one watching the TV, empty tables and the speakers far too loud. Kindly asked to have it turned down. Received a cart blanch No!. It is a real shame and disappointed at a time independent business are wanting us to return. Sad to...say we will not be returning.More

When we walked through the back we were pleasantly surprised as the pub interior and especially the beer garden were lovely. The service was excellent and they catered for picky tastes with charm and patience. Would definitely recommend

Booked a table for 6 (all from the same bubble) 5pm. We entered to a very empty pub 6 people in the bar and 2 tables in the restaurant with a few drinking outside. We sat down and handed the menus then ordered drinks with...a waitress who clearly didn't want to be working (owners daughter maybe as giving out orders to other staff) then asked about the chilli to be told that is the wrong menu.... That's the evening menu, being late afternoon were we able to order of that instead of the smaller lunch menu? NO was the reply very sternly! We ordered the food 50 mins later our food arrived....(With one dish forgotten about which then arrived within 5mins 🤔) I'm sorry to say it was very mediocre and clearly the suppliers have increased the prices but the quality has definitely slipped. Tripple cooked chips is more of an excuse to over cook them as they clearly were over cooked. The burgers were dry and the buns just as dry 😌 The honey roast ham.... Was sliced in the supermarket (wafer-thin) and not home cooked as expected, on my last visit (January) the lady (whom I assumed to be landlady) ws telling me in great length about her son the self taught chef and how almost everything on the menu was homemade! The menu really is poor quality and over priced in my honest opinion. Very sad to say we won't be coming back, made to feel unwelcoming, maybe just an off day for the staff but the food certainly has got worse then the standard before C19More

How many places can you have an excellent lunch with drinks for under a tenner ? We shared probably the best roast beef sandwich ( rare ) with horseradish, coleslaw & a basket of excellent chips with a pint & a half of Butty Bach...& handed over - metaphorically - £9.50 ! Couldn't fault it, and only 50 yards from The Cathedral. PerfectMore
