Our Inspector's view
The Riverside Inn sits alongside the River Lugg in a rural part of Herefordshire, offering peace and tranquillity for guests. This 16th-century black-and-white inn has a range of comfortable bedrooms including suites, which successfully bring together traditional features with a more contemporary feel. Dinner is a labour of love for chef-patron Andy Link, and shouldn’t be missed. Local sourcing and home-grown produce are key to the ethos here, with a large kitchen garden providing most of the fruit, vegetables and herbs. The larger centres of Ludlow, Leominster and Hereford are easily accessed by car.

About the area
Herefordshire is split in two by the River Wye which meanders through the county on its way to the Severn and the sea. Largely rural, with Hereford, Leominster, and Ross-on-Wye the major towns and cities, its countryside and ancient villages are the county’s major asset.
Visitors can take advantage of a number of the trails which will guide them through areas of interest. Those especially interested in historic village life should try the Black and White Village Trail, which takes motorists on a 40-mile drive around timber-framed villages from Leominster to Weobley (established in the 17th century and known as a centre of witchcraft in the 18th), Eardisley (where the church boasts a 12th-century carved font), Kington, Pembridge and others. Other trails include the Mortimer Trail, the Hop Trail and the Hidden Highway, which goes from Ross-on-Wye to Chester. Hereford has a small Norman cathedral, which has a great forest of pink sandstone columns lining the nave. Inside is a chained library, a 13th-century Mappa Mundi (map of the world) and one of only four copies of the 1217 version of the Magna Carta.
