Catering and Eating Out in Herefordshire and the Wye Valley
The produce in Herefordshire is delicious and fresh. The quality is superb. Herefordshire and Wye Valley are well served by farmers markets and farm shops.
We have a fabulous local caterer for you at Monnington House (minimum 10 people). They have huge experience of preparing meals here and are familiar with the kitchen and all the equipment. They provide a variety of options for you, from a pre-prepared supper for you to heat up, to a finger buffet, to a fully catered, waitressed, washed up formal dinner, the choice is yours.
Prices depend on what you require and the chosen ingredients, approximately £35 a head would be average for the full dinner party experience. Regrettably we only allow these authorised chefs and catering services on site as they are both known to us and familiar with the facilities.
Emily Rose Cakes
Celebratory cakes can be pre ordered and delivered.
Please note we do not permit caterers who are not recognised by us to work on the property.
Oakchurch Farm Shop
This superb farm shop is 1.8 miles from Monnington House. It is impressive and has maintained a fantastic COVID 19 policy throughout the pandemic. It sells local meats, vegetables and fruits plus wines, beers, ciders, cakes, biscuits and bread. It has a great selection of ready made chicken pies, lasagnes, treacle tarts and is getting prepared for Christmas. It will make a difference to your stay!
Pubs and cafés (within 20 minutes drive)
The Portway Inn
The Portway Inn is situated on the A438 at the top of Monnington Lane and is about 16 minutes walk from the properties. It welcomes dogs in the bar area. It produces local pub food. There are a reduced number of tables to maintain social distancing so please book in advance.
The Tram at Eardisley
The Tram is about 4 miles drive. It has good local food and welcomes dogs in the bar and is currently offering a takeaway service during the pandemic. Please book in advance. It has a boules pitch which is popular in the summer months.
The Stagg at Titley
Has a Michelin Star and is well worth a visit if you love your food or have a celebration planned. You can eat in the bar, restaurant or garden (weather permitting). It also has a takeaway service during the crisis.
Cafe at All Saints Hereford
This is a favourite of mine. Pop into this extraordinarily lovely space for socially distanced dining: calm, spacious and airy. Even better when combined with a visit to the Mappa Mundi in Hereford Cathedral.
Shepherds Ice Cream Parlour
In Hay on Wye and produces wonderful ice cream which always hits the spot with everyone in the family.
