Dined on a Travelzoo voucher, so value was assured. The food was good enough to merit full price. Service was friendly and customer focused at the highest level. As they are still bedding in, they have great potential, which I hope that they achieve. Will no doubt be back and would recommend that you try it.

4 meals ordered 2 off. 3 sweets ordered all off. Service slow had to summon waiting staff on three occasions. Used to be most favourite eating house locally. What food was available was good.

We stayed in the area recently and ended up eating here on 2 of the 3 nights we were here. On arrival we were greeted really warmly by Angela and the other ladies working, we asked for a table and told yes of course no problem, as we hadn't pre booked, but we are early diners anyway. We ordered our... More

Went for the weekend to lower wythall B&B not far from the mill race, and the owners recommended this place to us to eat. They booked a table for us and we were pleasantly surprised. The drinks on offer were great, the food lovely and reasonably priced and the staff were very welcoming and accommodating. We liked it so much... More

We were regular visitors to the Mill Race a year or so ago and always enjoyed it, then there was a change of management and to be honest although the food was great, the atmosphere the the 2 managers created however left a lot to be desired. We heard that there was some new people in there so decided to... More

Visited after hearing so many great reviews, we were greeted and seated quickly and efficiently. There was a mistake with one order but this was quickly sorted out. The food was ok, although hot prawns with a cold sauce is a bit odd! The reason I have not given this more stars is because of the service; whilst they were... More

We arranged to meet friends for lunch, expecting a bustling atmosphere as Easter weekend. However it was very quiet. 2 sullen bored looking bar staff, more interested in chatting to each other. We ordered our meals, but on arrival ciabatta had been replaced with French stick, and chips with French fries. The staff just said 'ciabatta had reported been delivered',however... More

Arrived at 4 pm on a gloriously sunny Saturday looking forward to having an enjoyable drink with the family at this well-established pub of good reputation and felt very let down. Member of staff serving behind the bar simply sat down looking quite bored. We asked for a bottle of chardonnay, received a withering look as it was obtained then... More

A relaxed, informal village pub set in the Wye Valley just 3 miles from Ross-on-Wye and 6 miles from Monmouth. Owned and managed by people who are passionate about the freshest of produce and food, wine and fine ales - nearly all of our produce is sourced from within 30 miles of Walford, some even comes from our very own farm! Being positioned on the borders of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire we are surrounded by wonderful producers. Our regularly changing menus ensure we make the most of local produce with our focus on simple food cooked well.
