Good Hotel Guide Review
This ancient inn lies at the meeting of two drovers’ roads in a rustic village where farmers came to weigh their wool. Upstairs, and on different levels, there are four small, dog-friendly bedrooms with exposed timbers, all supplied with fresh milk, tea and ground coffee. If you want a beer in the afternoon when the pub is closed, there will be someone to pull you a pint. Locally sourced seasonal menus include pub classics such as fish and chips during the week, or fillet of Herefordshire beef, as well as more inventive dishes with Sri Lankan flavours, maybe springfield chicken breast, mushroom and miso ketchup, crispy leeks and dauphinoise potato.
