Dinner last night with my wife for our wedding anniversary. The welcome was warm, the Prosecco was well chilled, the food was outstanding and the service excellent. This must be the best in the quality of ingredients, presentation of the meals and cooking expertise in Herefordshire. A quaint little old pub near the River Wye which is spotlessly clean and...

We booked for a bank holiday weekend lunch on a bit of a whim. So glad that we did! The first thing we noticed when we got there was how quiet and tranquil the village was. The only noise was from the little stream that runs by the front of the pub. Pub classics are on offer at the bar,... More

We have been staying her for several years and keep returning because it is so special, the name sums it up. Its one of the oldest pubs in the country and has a great atmosphere and a beautiful setting. The pub itself is full of character with a great choice of beer and wine. The rooms are very comfortable with... More

I booked a table for 6, for my mothers birthday. To say the whole experience was stunning, would do it no justice. The surroundings are beautiful, the food is out of this world, and the service was outstanding. They realised it was my mothers birthday, and put a candle in her desert, and made her feel special. We had no... More

...but we needn't have worried. A three night stay reinforced our opinion that the Cottage of Content is a superb pub with excellent food, comfortable rooms, friendly owners and welcoming staff. To say we couldn't fault anything misses the point - a few days at the Cottage is the ideal way to wind down while visiting a beautiful part of... More

We had close friends down to stay from London and thought it would be nice to eat at the Cottage of Content for a Friday night dinner. You can immediately see why this place won 'Count Pub of the Year'. Set in quiet hamlet of Carey, it is very traditional inside with basic bar with a real fire and good... More

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
