We selected this pub as a nice place to have a relatively quiet 50th wedding Anniversary dinner for my inlaws and immediate family (eight of us). I booked a particular table three months ago to ensure that we would be on a large table in a partitioned off area. Make it feel a bit more special. When I telephoned three... More

We stayed for one night for my husband birthday, the pub is rural, ancient and charming. The room was pleasant, the bed clean and comfortable. The food was delicious! They have rightly been awarded 'Country Pub of the Year 2017'. Our stay was delightful and I highly recommend it.

Four of us had a three course lunch here today. The pub is in the middle of nowhere but well worth the trip to a beautiful old building with an interesting menu and delicious food and I'm a very critical water. I was pleased to be able to compliment the owner and chef Richard. Just down the road is Hoarwithy... More

We did visit on a very cold wet night in February, not been in Cottage of Content for over 20 years. I guess really it is a pub that does meals, but all tables laid for food and a very small bar area. It had a certain amount of charm and quaintness, but very rustic.Menu was good, although a couple... More

We were supposed to be going Horse Racing, cancelled early Sunday morning & although the Cottage was fully booked, Richard managed to fit us in late on. Excellent meal as usual, home made GLUTEN free pate ( my wife is Coeliac ) & roast lamb. The Cottage serves two excellent local bitters, Wye Valley Butty Bach ( 4.5% ) &... More

Had a pre- Christmas Sunday lunch here. The trustworthy Good Pub Guide had made it pub of the year nationally so worth travelling the country miles to sample a very good Sunday lunch. Atmospheric gastro pub with good choice of ales and ciders. We enjoyed starters of soup and a tian of crab and prawns followed by belly pork and... More
