A weekend lunch in winter - open fire, pints, big helpings (vast mushrooms dish). The cooking is perhaps not quite as delicate as it was a few years ago but it remains ambitious and interesting, with dishes of the day and plenty of game. The...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.
