Catering and Eating Out
The produce in Herefordshire is delicious and fresh. The quality is very good value. There are farmers markets and local producers selling from their farms – all worth a visit.
We recommend you contact caterers as soon as your booking is confirmed. Please confirm if you are instructing them.
Debbie cooks regularly in the house. She lives in Herefordshire and uses local produce. She also will ‘cook and dump’ and supplies ready made food for your convenience.

Hester runs a small catering firm and in particular produces very good patisserie. She cooked for guests who took the house for Easter week to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Our guests were thrilled with her work and attention to detail.
Pubs (all within 20 minutes drive)
The Portway Inn is situated at the top of the lane about 1.4 miles from the house and is within 16 minutes walking distance. (Pack a torch if you plan to walk home at night). Our guests regularly enjoy Steak Night on Friday nights and also the set Sunday Lunch which is great value (www.theportwayinnhotel.co.uk).
The Tram at Eardisley produces good local food at excellent prices. Mark and his wife Kerry are excellent hosts. We ate there every week whilst we oversaw the 3 year building programme (www.thetraminn.co.uk). They are very tolerant with children! We continue to eat here regularly. They accept dogs in the bar area.
The Stagg at Titley (www.thestagg.co.uk) has a Michelin star and is well worth a visit for a special occasion. It has bar and restaurant food. There are also tables in the garden. It is surprisingly good value and worth considering.
The Red Lion at Bredwardine (www.redlion-hotel.com) is increasingly popular with guests and overlooks they Wye. Good local produce is provided. You can also pick up a ticket to fish on the Wye here.
The River Café at Glasbury is a favourite of mine. It is situated next the the River Wye and you can watch the wildlife whilst you eat or drink. It serves very good coffee and excellent fish and chips. www.therivercafeglasbury.co.uk.
Shepherds Ice Cream Parlour in Hay on Wye produces ‘the yummiest ice cream you’ll ever taste’ according to Jaqueline Wilson, childrens author.
