We visited on a beautiful Saturday lunchtime with cloudless blue skies and the pub was quiet, which meant we could enjoy the beautiful views from the amazing beer garden in peace. The owner has obviously taken a lot of time and trouble to landscape and plant the area with fruit trees and willows at the edge of the stream to... More

We recently moved to the area and heard good things about the Butcher's, but we were still taken by surprise. The first thing you notice is how friendly the place is - all the staff make you feel welcome, and the atmosphere is very cosy. They have a superb selection of draught ales and ciders from the area, plus a... More

Dropped in for lunch with my wife on a cold Thursday and was pleased I did. I ate the pigeon and black pudding starter doubled up as a main course and my wife had the pork tenderloin. They took a reassuringly long time to arrive- everything is therefore freshly cooked! Excellent ingredients, no fault in the cooking and the portions... More

Been twice and going again this coming weekend. Really nice atmosphere and friendly staff. If its in the winter get a table near the fire place, its really snug and warm. Food was very nice, but some times rather small portions when it comes to the Veg. I asked for extra dauphinoise potatoes and got something the size of 2... More

Having had a late night Saturday, no better idea than a good Sunday lunch to help sort the hangover out. The butchers offer just the ticket, great food, no issue with extra potatoes like some places, excellent service, cheers Ben. And all topped off with a nice bottle of red, then home to sleep.

Thank you for taking the time to review our country pub, lighting is very important and we have tried to brighten up some areas but it intruded on the overall ambiance of the olde world pub, modern lights don't fit in I'm afraid, may be more candles is the answer Kind regards Phil More

A lovely old half-timbered pub in gorgeous countryside 8 miles SE of Hereford and a few miles from Ledbury, Ross and Malvern. Run by chef Stephen Bull. The pub's food is sourced from local ingredients, and there are cask ales and local cider and perry. The Butchers runs regular special food and wine evenings (dates posted on website). Large garden with stream for nice days, two roaring fires in the winter. Separate room bookable for parties. Family and dog friendly. Warm welcome.
