Picturesque pub in idyllic surroundings. Absolutely outstanding food and fantastic staff. Nine of us ladies (!) visited on a Saturday lunch time and had a wonderful time! The landlady was so lovely, (the best for miles around!) friendly & welcoming and Dan offered amazing service with a smile. Thank you so much, hope to come back when visiting the area... More

This was a gift for my girlfriend and I (Overnight stay with evening meal and breakfast). A really pleasant treat, right from the welcome when we arrived to the friendly chat and farewell from the lovely gent who cooked our tasty breakfast. The cottage itself certainly has the character with the beams and low ceilings, even a bang on the... More

Location - tick; service - tick; food - tick; atmosphere - tick. In fact I can't fault this place! Went for an amazing lunch with my husband on a Groupon offer and wasn't expecting to be blown away by this Sawday's recommended little pub. Set in a tiny hamlet near the banks of the River Wye the pub exudes village... More

Dinner last night with my wife for our wedding anniversary. The welcome was warm, the Prosecco was well chilled, the food was outstanding and the service excellent. This must be the best in the quality of ingredients, presentation of the meals and cooking expertise in Herefordshire. A quaint little old pub near the River Wye which is spotlessly clean and...

We booked for a bank holiday weekend lunch on a bit of a whim. So glad that we did! The first thing we noticed when we got there was how quiet and tranquil the village was. The only noise was from the little stream that runs by the front of the pub. Pub classics are on offer at the bar,... More

We have been staying her for several years and keep returning because it is so special, the name sums it up. Its one of the oldest pubs in the country and has a great atmosphere and a beautiful setting. The pub itself is full of character with a great choice of beer and wine. The rooms are very comfortable with... More

I booked a table for 6, for my mothers birthday. To say the whole experience was stunning, would do it no justice. The surroundings are beautiful, the food is out of this world, and the service was outstanding. They realised it was my mothers birthday, and put a candle in her desert, and made her feel special. We had no... More

...but we needn't have worried. A three night stay reinforced our opinion that the Cottage of Content is a superb pub with excellent food, comfortable rooms, friendly owners and welcoming staff. To say we couldn't fault anything misses the point - a few days at the Cottage is the ideal way to wind down while visiting a beautiful part of... More
