This well-known border-country inn is “still one of the best places to eat in the area”, with “well prepared and flavoursome food”. Long-time regulars miss Steve & Nicola Reynolds, who retired a couple of years ago, but the new management team of chef Tom Tudor and his partner Vittoria Turolla, FOH, have settled in well and the place is now “performing better again”.

“Consistently good unpretentious food” has long been the hallmark of this country inn on an old drivers’ route. Steve & Nicola Reynolds retired last year after more than two decades and it’s now “settling down under the new ownership” of London-born hospitality veteran Muralidhar Shanmugam, known as ‘Shan’ – and “the food is still first class”. Top Menu Tip – “unbeatable bread and butter pudding”.

This “classic modern country inn restaurant on the Welsh-English border” has been a “champion of local food and drinks” for 20 years under owners Steve and Nicola Reynolds, offering “consistently high standards, with chef always looking for twists and variations”. “The country should be full of pub-restaurants with this sort of cooking, but sadly it’s not!” “There’s an excellent range of wines, too, in terms of cost and quality”.

An “always reliable gastropub” (with rooms) smoothly steered by Steve & Nicola Reynolds for two decades, and whose “wide-ranging menu” – supplemented by a lengthy wine list, mostly from Tanners – is “cooked to perfection”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
