Had a meal here it was OK. We were hungry so it was edible. It was not anything else than average. Maybe because of my selection of choices being vegatatian that was the reason. But I have had better. Although saying that the others quite enjoyed theirs but they also said it was because they were hungry. Left feeling a... More

I am doing my familt tree and found lots of deeds and tenancies about the Axe and Cleaver starting in 1850 and ending 1909. so we decided to go for lunch. Staying in Hereford we caught the bus (stop right outside pub) and then had excellent lunch. Game pie and roast beef. Very reasonably priced and very friendly owners.

I've been visiting here for a long time now and it never fails. If you want great pub food in a traditional pub environment then this is the place.

We were a party of 7 and had a mixture of Turkey, Beef and Lamb. All of our party were delighted with their choice, the food was very well prepared and presented. Would definitely... More

Six of us went to the Axe and Cleaver again last night, this time to celebrate our daughter's birthday. We had a really good mixed grill, several steak pies and a couple of lasagnes between us. We all felt so stuffed we didn't have room for any puddings this time. Staff very friendly, service good and meal wonderful! We'll be... More
