The flagstone-floored bar, with its scrubbed pine tables, has retained the feel of an authenic old English Inn.

The bar is open all day everyday and offers a fine selection of classic and local real ales, ciders and quality wines, by the glass or bottle.

The riverside terraces are the ideal place to watch the Inn’s ancient hand ferry carry passengers across the Wye as it did in yesteryear.

Free Wireless Internet: We have free wireless internet which is available throughout the inn, and even extends onto the terraces.
