"I visited Pensons with a group of friends with high hopes of a restaurant that could blow all of the local competition out of the water and it did not disappoint. On arrival you are left in awe by the beauty of the space, the huge windows letting in beams of light and magnificent wicker lamp-shades hanging from the ceiling. However, it is the food which is the stand out highlight. I love steak tartare and I have it whenever I can, and the way Lee cooks it, or rather does not, is special, it had all the fundamentals of a steak tartare but his completely different, interesting and even more delicious. The steak tartare was particularly brilliant to me but all the food we had on the tasting menu was simply fantastic. The waiters could were also lovely, always around to serve but never intrusive but most importantly, I believe, always had a smile. Pensons really is the standout restaurant in Herefordshire, there is nowhere for miles that you can eat or drink that well as they equally have a good wine and cocktail list, in such a beautiful space. I cannot recommend more highly and I hope they get the star the deserve."

"I had been looking forward to visiting the recently opened Pensons as I loved Lee Westcotts cooking at The Typing Room. Pensons is terrific. I love how an ancient barn has been converted into a cool restaurant. Lee hasn’t lost his touch, the food was excellent. The whole story about the Netherwood Estate and the produce it provides to Lee is A great add on to the cooking itself. My fiends who live in the area are keen to re-visit and even though I live in London, I would make a special trip to eat at Pensons again. Well done Lee and team!"

"We have been fortunate to have eaten at Pensons on two occasions recently and we have had the opportunity to sample a different Menu each time. I cannot speak highly enough as to the quality and presentation of the meals we enjoyed and the service was of the very highest standard. We will certainly be going back in the near future."
