Having read some of the previous reviews I felt I had to write one . My friends and I dine regularly around the county and this is one of the finest if not the best restaurant you will find. Last time was two days ago....More

As I have said repeatedly we are not for everyone........ that is why there is so much choice in the area - there's enough for everyone to choose from. We are not expensive for the quality of food we serve. What does really irritate me...More

A cosy, traditional country pub with log fires and beamed ceilings set in beautiful countryside. The menu is large and varied, for meat-eaters at least - if I have a gripe, it is that they really could offer more than one vegetarian dish and a...More

Thank you for your review and I'm sorry you found our bar sign scary. If you read it correctly we certainly do not warn off families but welcome them, and we do just ask people to respect our opening/closing times. We do serve all types...More

Visited with my partner for dinner on a Saturday night. The food was incredible. A menu full of deliciousness and a specials board on top. The Ginger Sticky Toffee Pudding was probably the best thing I had across the whole of our weekend away. The...More

We've eaten in this wonderfully quaint, ancient, tastefully refurbished country gastro-pub many many times since the current owners took over. With its stone walls, ancient beams, lovely rustic decor and warming woodburner it's impossible not to feel relaxed and cosy from the moment one arrives....More

Hi, we were interested in visiting Lough Pool restaurant, but noticed that the limited menu (which we don't mind being limited) contains mains that consist of cheap cuts of meat i.e. Rump steak, belly of pork and lamb, do you propose to use some better ingredients in the near future as we find the cheaper cuts of meat off-putting to say the least!

My family and I ate in the Lough Pool while visiting from Canada. We ate a Soup called Carrot and Coriander soup and my kids loved it and still ask me to make it. That was almost three years ago. Im hoping to get the recipe!! Sad to hear its closed down. I cannot leave an email address on this site. Maybe I will check back on this site and see if anyone could help me out! Amanda Gentry

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...
