Big stylish gastropub with views across the Wye valley and fabulous food from their own estate - from beef, pork, pheasant to blackberries!

As the 'ecclesiastical' door swings open, prepare yourself for a stylish place. A stainless steel kitchen glistens behind a granite-topped bar, there are counter-style bar tables and leather armchairs, a wood-burner divides the eating areas and a food provenance blackboard shows how seriously food is taken here. The kitchen team choose the meat and the game from their 1,000 acre farm and estate and help dig the vegetables; they'll even catch the trout for the table. Linger long over roast leg of red partridge with mash, bread sauce and watercress salad, or roast Gower pollock with crushed potatoes, wild mushrooms and parsley oil. A new carbon-neutral wood fired pizza oven, lit on certain days only, sits on the rear terrace. Look across the Wye to the ruins of Goodrich Castle, sip ales from the same valley. Fabulous.
