You probably need to book ahead to get a view of the river. The food is pretty good. I had the chicken liver pate and they did me a generous side salad on request. The onion marmalade was not the best, but the service was...More

We visited based on good Tripadvisor reviews. We received table service, food was excellent value and to a very high standard. Outside seating was overlooking the river, although we sat inside in the warm. We hope to visit again.

Simple, quick, efficient, economic and above all great food. We both had the meat platter and one Home crumbed chicken Kiev and one cod lion wrapped in bacon - no complaints or criticism.

This is a very unassuming pub on the banks of the Wye, off the main road into town. Nice beer garden out back overlooking the river and simple pub interior, nothing fancy. We were staying in Ross for only one night and this was the...More

Staying at a local B&B, we were recommended this place by the landlady's son. The pub offers a nice, simple menu, that will cater for the vast majority of people. I opted for the homemade Chicken Kiev and my wife had their 'famous' Cod &...More

Historic Trowhallers riverside inn that has a wharf in the garden. Excellent meal overlooking the river. Pleasant staff and welcoming locals. Close to the best chips that I have ever had. Well worth a visit if the Beefeater at the Premier Inn is full, which...More
