Visited after hearing so many great reviews, we were greeted and seated quickly and efficiently. There was a mistake with one order but this was quickly sorted out. The food was ok, although hot prawns with a cold sauce is a bit odd! The reason I have not given this more stars is because of the service; whilst they were... More

We arranged to meet friends for lunch, expecting a bustling atmosphere as Easter weekend. However it was very quiet. 2 sullen bored looking bar staff, more interested in chatting to each other. We ordered our meals, but on arrival ciabatta had been replaced with French stick, and chips with French fries. The staff just said 'ciabatta had reported been delivered',however... More

Arrived at 4 pm on a gloriously sunny Saturday looking forward to having an enjoyable drink with the family at this well-established pub of good reputation and felt very let down. Member of staff serving behind the bar simply sat down looking quite bored. We asked for a bottle of chardonnay, received a withering look as it was obtained then... More

Popped in (based on a recommendation from a lovely local B&B - Croft Cottage Holidays) and was not disappointed! An absolutely superb Sunday Lunch using locally sourced ingredients washed down by some local ales. Although the restaurant was really busy, they still managed to squeeze us in and the service was excellent. Would thoroughly recommend!

Food was ok but service was not good at all despite not being massively busy. They asked if we wanted drinks but hadn't bought us the drinks list, said they would come back to take drinks order but didn't after dropping list off. Ordered bread & olives to arrive pre starters. Next starters arrive & we haven't had bread &... More

We went to the Mill Race for a special celebration. Food was not good, one starter was described as with 'quail's egg' and came with only half a quails egg! What happened to the other half we wondered, how cheap is that! The steaks which were bigged up on the menu were incredibly tough. A mixed fish grill was ordered... More

A cut above the average village pub. We had Sunday lunch which was great quality. An interesting mix of dishes and the rare sirloin of beef I had of my main course was exceptional. A good selection of beer with friendly staff and great service. Definitely worth the visit!

A relaxed, informal village pub set in the Wye Valley just 3 miles from Ross-on-Wye and 6 miles from Monmouth. Owned and managed by people who are passionate about the freshest of produce and food, wine and fine ales - nearly all of our produce is sourced from within 30 miles of Walford, some even comes from our very own farm! Being positioned on the borders of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire we are surrounded by wonderful producers. Our regularly changing menus ensure we make the most of local produce with our focus on simple food cooked well.
