Pleasant half-timbered inn in peaceful setting, with an inviting garden, interesting food and a fine choice of real ales

They brew their own Butchers Arms Henry Hodges in this country pub and also have guests such as Ledbury Gold and Wye Valley Butty Bach on handpump, six wines by the glass from a good list, 14 malt whiskies and a couple of farm ciders. The bar has very low beams, built-in cushioned wall seats, farmhouse chairs and stools around a mix of old tables (some set for dining) on carpet, paintings by local artists on cream walls and a woodburning stove in a big fireplace; there's also a little beamed dining room, similarly furnished. The parrot is called Max. There are picnic-sets in a pretty, streamside garden. To really appreciate the surroundings, turn left as you come out of the pub and take the tiny left-hand road at the end of the car park; this turns into a track and then a path, and the view from the top of the hill is quite something (if you ask, the pub will provide a map).

What the licensee says

A lovely old half-timbered pub in gorgeous countryside 8 miles southeast of Hereford and a few miles from Ledbury, Ross and Malvern. The M50, A449, A49 and A417 are all fairly close by.The Butchers Arms started selling beer in the mid-19th century, when some country butchers were allowed to brew and sell their own beer although the building dates back to 1590.Owner Stephen Bull was the originator of that pub classic, the twice-baked soufflé, to be found on the menu alongside Goodrich Longhorn beef, Chepstow ducks, Kentchurch venison, fish from Cornish inshore boats, and fruit and veg from nearby farms and gardens.The Butchers offers local cask beers, ciders and perry, and a punchy wine list with 10 bottles by the glass and carafe. Open fires warm the low-ceilinged bars in winter, and there is a pretty garden with a stream.
