We reopen from our brief closure with, wait for it, a new dishwasher.  And a fabulous new Vispring bed in Room 5 to replace its predecessor Four Poster.

Winter Escape returns.  From £155 per couple per night, including dinner and breakfast.  Magnificent value.

Good Food Guide confirms us in the Top 50 of the pubs that are lucky enough to be in its guide.

6th November confirmed as next date for an FFG Wine Supper. With one of our very favourite merchants, Raymond Reynolds.


A Bottle Shop

We don't find it easy to buy good wine in the area.  Fingal Rock Wines in Monmouth is an obvious exception and we like the look of newcomers to Hereford, Noble & Wild.
But with each of those two 45 minutes from us, we become a good option if you're looking to buy wine by the bottle or by the case.

We're happy to sell any of the wines on our list to take away at retail prices.  These are good wines, well made by exacting wine makers, often organic or biodynamic. 

Sunday Sleepover

Available all year round.  Kick back with us for Sunday lunch, the papers and maybe an afternoon walk.  Then supper, a good night's sleep and a great breakfast on Monday morning.

From just £215 for two people at the moment and then a little less (£195) when the Winter Escape is in place (when the clocks are on GMT).             

Into the heart of Summer

In June we waved goodbye to Max Wilson who heads to Cornwall to take over the kitchen at The Gurnard's Head. Into his place at the pass steps Ben Ogden.  He's a chef of genuine talent whose approach to food sits ideally with the EDS ethos. 

Do come and try his output.  We're lucky enough that summer is usually busy for us, so we always suggest booking so that you know we'll have a table for you when you want it.

Beyond the summer lies our September Sleepover starting from Sunday 4 September.  2 - 4 night stays, including dinner each night.  Until Thursday 6 October and from £329 for two nights.

The Summer Holiday

Manifold are the reasons to spend your summer in Britain.  We think a beating sun is overrated.

Just in this part of the world there are hills, adventure sports, streams, camping, market towns, canal boats and riding.  And fishing.  And cycling.

Our encouragement to holiday in Wales are special rates for stays of more than 4 nights or for parents with young children.  Just email us here for more details.




Ever popular resolutions to difficult present problems, our vouchers can be with you within a couple of days.

For any amount, or for a particular offer, and usable at any EATDRINKSLEEP inn, they last at least 12 months and we’re happy to extend them if needed.

We now even send them to you in a little pack that you can give to the lucky recipient.  An improvement on our previous Blue Peter efforts.

We donate 5% of voucher sales in each December to our chosen charities.  This year we were able to hand over £1100 to share between Brecon Mountain Rescue and Pentreath, an organisation helping those with mental health challenges in Cornwall.

“Everything a winter pub should be: warm, welcoming, and characterful, with huge squishy sofas and exceptionally fine food.”
