Had lunch with 6 members of my family and were greeted by friendly and helpful staff on arrival. The Northern Irish lady was particularly good with all of us and in helping with my grandchildren. We had very good meals in quality, quantity and taste. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our food and the ambiance. My daughter and her partner... More

This is a charming pub set in the middle of the Herefordshire country but close to Ross on Wye with good road network available. Very traditional pub grub with chicken and steak and kidney pies being a popular choice. The pigeon Wellington sounded interesting but was a bit dry and imaginatively presented.

This pub is fantastic. The food is stunning, often seasonal, generally local. The menu is imaginative and varied. Veggies well catered for. Ask for the bar to bring your dog. Beer is well kept and varied. Good wines. Delicious cocktails. Beautiful building and surroundings. Staff very friendly, helpful and attentive. Great walking in the lovely wye valley. Try to make...

I rarely get to the point of actually writing reviews, think about it, but never do it! The whole experience this evening was a delight! The care and attention given to the "dressing" of the venue is much appreciated, beautifully tended garden, fairy lit and warm welcome from the ladies behind the bar. Generously candle lit, with attractively laid tables.... More

It seems that the good people of Herefordshire have more money than a ensue! The pub is located in the middle of nowhere, hence the country pub tag. The food was of good quality although it was VERY expensive (which probably was the reason it was half empty on a Saturday evening). £16 for 3 tiny pieces of pork, a... More

On holiday, found this idyllic pub so reserved a table to eat two nights on the trot. The first night my meal was inadequate although my wife's was fine. I spoke to the manageress explaining my reasons and it was agreed that I shouldn't pay for my meal. Fair enough. We stayed longer to drink and then paid up. The... More

I expected this review and am not going to respond other than by saying I have never in my career met anyone as arrogant or patronising. Your statement at the end about the local approaching you and saying they had witnessed this before is an absolute & total outright LIE although I would expect nothing less. You told me at... More

I had been to the Lough a few years ago and was dreadfully disappointed so was hesitant when I was told this was were we were going for my birthday. I hasten to add the party was just three people. What a difference. The bar staff were smiling and helpful and that's usually a good sign. We had booked a... More

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.

The Lough Pool is easily accessible from Ross-on-Wye or Hereford and offers plenty of parking. Well behaved children and dogs are always welcome...
