Hereford Cathedral

Reviewed By JenAnnie - Nottingham, United Kingdom

What a fabulous visit we had to the Cathedral We can certainly recommend it Altho due to Covid some of the Cathedral is roped off, we walked round mist of it it is beautiful & it has such a brilliant History attached to it We went thru to the Chained Library (fascinating) & the Mappa Mundy which was a superb artifact to see. So interesting to see the Medieval map where scholars only knew & depicted Europe Asia & Africa. With many unusual birds & beats. So glad we went to see it. 5 star review for the Cathedral experience.

Two extremely helpful young men were manning the desk. The exhibits were of excellent quality, and the information boards ideal. Got completely lost in time. Really good value at £3.50. Felt I had really stepped back in time in the lovely atmosphere of the House

Monkland Cheese Dairy

Reviewed By MelFinch - Derby, United Kingdom

Staying in Ludlow for a few days, and did a walk at NT Berrington Hall in the morning. Monkdale Cheese Dairy popped up with excellent tripadvisor reviews, so as it was raining almost non-stop we decided not to go and hunt around unfamiliar Leominster and booked a table earlier in the morning for lunch. In fact we didn’t need to book, very pleasant light and airy upstairs room (and outdoor tables if sunny). Excellent ploughman’s lunches, one ham one blue cheese so we could mix and match, and good range of soft drinks. Fantastic cheeses, cakes, pickles, biscuits, etc on sale in shop, and both that and the café were quite busy on a miserable day, promptly served by friendly staff. After lunch we dived back out into the rain, well nourished!

The Barrels

Reviewed By 950charlesf - Newtown, United Kingdom

Close to the city, a good 5 minutes walk, the brewery tap for Wye Valley offers the full range of their output at competitive prices, plenty of room outside in the large yard to the rear, a great place to meet friends. Current social distance rules being followed, temperature check on arrival.

Reviewed By Dereklaird

First pub we visited since the lockdown. Was slightly nervous re safety arrangements but needn’t have worried. Great pub, tables well spaced out and of course the beer was excellent! In my opinion the best real ale house in Hereford.

Ye Old Ferrie Inn

Reviewed By 488petem - Billericay, United Kingdom

My girlfriend booked this place as a surprise weekend away and it was absolutely superb. As everyone says... Jamie and his staff are fantastic, the friendliest and most helpful you'll meet! The room we had was reasonably sized for for an old ferry Inn of a few hundred years! With recently decorated bathroom and electric shower. The views looking up and down the river are incredible and we had a very peaceful stay. As others state there's a hand ferry you can take to cross the river, "powered" by one of the bar staff when needed and we took this to go canoeing from a place near the Saracen's Head which is across and down the river. On the subject of the Saracen's Head... This is the place that everyone you talk to (when researching Symonds Yat) recommends... But it's very busy and noisy with a constant stream of cars... If you're looking for a constant buzz, noise and throng of many people then please go to the Saracen's head! And leave the peace and tranquility of the Old Ferrie Inne to the rest of us! We've ready booked to return here later in the year... Highlt recommended
