This pub is located within the lovely Herefordshire countryside on the outskirts of Ross-on-Wye. A 16th-century coaching inn, it retains character but has lots of contemporary flourishes too. It has comfortable, spacious rooms but excels at its fine dining offering. There's a simpler bar menu too.

By car: 1 hour 20 minutes from Birmingham, under 2 hours from Oxford and 3 hours from London. Free parking on-site.

By train: London Paddington to Hereford takes under 3 hours. The hotel is a 20-minute taxi ride from the station. Book trains to Hereford.

This Grade II-listed building had been closed for five years before its extensive restoration. It retains plenty of character with exposed timbers, beams and uneven walls, but has plenty of contemporary touches too, with orange, green, yellow and grey chairs spicing things up in the restaurant, which is also lined with both tartan and leather banquettes. There's a lovely old wood and zinc-topped bar, earthy green walls and attractive pendant lighting.


Being essentially a gastropub, there aren't many other facilities to speak of. There's a small beer garden and free car parking. Service is efficient and friendly.
