Featured Hereford Restaurants
1. The Walnut Tree British, Modern restaurant in Llandewi Skirrid Llanddewi Skirrid - NP7
Shaun Hill’ “comfortable and comforting restaurant” – a rural pub made famous in the 1970s by the Taruschios and co-owned by Shaun since 2008 – maintains its position as one of Wales’s most commented-on destinations. Although not quite at the heights it has sometimes achieved, “excellent local produce is served simply and well” and “the menu shows classical training with sparks of Asian and middle-European influences”.
2. No.9 The Balcony Fish & seafood restaurant in Hereford 8/9 Bewell Street - HR4
In 2019, owners Oli and Hannah transformed this former coffee shop into a casual dining venue, serving all-day from breakfast, but focusing on very funky small plate dishes as the day progresses. Limited feedback – but positive all-round.
3. The Burger Shop (A Rule of Tum) Burgers, etc restaurant in Hereford 32 Aubrey Street - HR4
“Ace burgers” (for example, “their haggis burger is particularly different and delicious”) “with many choices of pickles and other accompaniments” make for a “simple, quick, great-value” meal at this local smash hit (part of a small group operating in Hereford and Worcester).
4. The Bookshop British, Modern restaurant in Hereford 33 Aubrey Street - HR4
A steak-led “relative newcomer” – named for the former use of these premises – where the main event graces a “short, meat-focused menu” that “clearly concentrates on what they are skilled at” (though there’s also praise for the “second-to-none” coffee and cakes). “Fantastic staff” and a “great ambience” round out its charms…“if you take clients they never fail to be impressed”.
5. Castle House Restaurant British, Modern restaurant in Hereford Castle St - HR1
A “Hereford stalwart” – the “spacious dining room of a charming hotel, with view over the castle moat” provides an ideal setting for Hungarian chef Gabor Katona’s “really consistent” cooking. The Watkins family, who own and run the hotel, grow fruit, vegetables, herbs and salad leaves and rear Hereford beef at their nearby Ballingham Hall farm – all served in the restaurant.
