The restaurant offers diners a tasty seasonal menu of the best British cuisine and we can cater for intimate dinners or parties. Our produce is fresh and locally sourced and cooked by Paul for your enjoyment. We offer local ales and cider or choose from our specially selected wine list. In the summer why not enjoy alfresco dining in our garden surrounded by the spectacular Herefordshire countryside. Set in the beautiful rural Herefordshire countryside (an oasis for walkers!) The Loughpool is easily accessible from Ross-on-Wye or Hereford and offers plenty of parking. Well behaved children and dogs are always welcome...
