Visited with my partner for dinner on a Saturday night. The food was incredible. A menu full of deliciousness and a specials board on top. The Ginger Sticky Toffee Pudding was probably the best thing I had across the whole of our weekend away. The team are so welcoming and the place has been decorated beautifully. Heartily recommend.

We've eaten in this wonderfully quaint, ancient, tastefully refurbished country gastro-pub many many times since the current owners took over. With its stone walls, ancient beams, lovely rustic decor and warming woodburner it's impossible not to feel relaxed and cosy from the moment one arrives. Svenia is glamorous and efficient in her role as Front of House, her husband, Paul,... More

Our third visit to a local Hoarwithy pub over Christmas week and what a find. Revisiting some old and new places from my youth, am close to pension age now so it's been a while. Wish we had made this our second on the list as we would have visited twice. Great choice of food on main menu but specials... More

We visited the Lough Pool this evening with friends (couples). We had a lovely meal, the food was fantastic and really good value. The setting was relaxed and cosy and the service was really good, not in your face but there when needed. We regularly eat out trying different places..and then for a bit of fun we score each course... More

We dropped into one of our latter day favourite pubs which had been in the doldrums for a longish time, not to be disappointed. We had a warm welcome and a lovely lunch, everything was good and we were so happy to discover that The Lough Pool is restored to its former glory!! Well done to the new owners, we... More

We used to be regular customers at this pub many years ago when it was one of the best eating establishments in the Ross-on-Wye area. This regrettably hasn’t been the case for many years until currently. We booked a Sunday lunch recently and were delighted by what we experienced. We started with a tasty smoked salmon starter with sweet potato... More

A warm welcome on arrival. Friendly service, and very well presented food, from the specials board. A very attractive and appealing dessert menu,and not disappointed with their taste. Deserves all the praise, and will definitely travel to visit again, probably for dinner. When looking at the menus on their site, do not forget that there is a specials board available.... More

We visit the Lough Pool usually every 2 Weeks , the food is consistently excellent , they always have a good Specials Board which supports local Producers and follows the Seasons . The Staff are a delight , nothing is too much trouble , they even remember which Bottle of Wine we like .

Having heard that the Lough Pool was doing good food again I just had to visit for an evening meal. It must be 8 years or more since I've been when it was on culinary form. Sadly like the new owners report it fell into steep decline, I remember driving past time after time to see an empty car park... More

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...
