The Riverside Inn at Amyestrey is set deep in the countryside of Herefordshire, yet still close to Ludlow and Hereford. Authentic and atmospheric, The Riverside Inn’s 16th century black and white building is surrounded by the natural beauty of the River Lugg.

Inside The Riverside Inn bar and restaurant, the surrounds are unspoiled and unchanged, with log fires, candles, hops and pine. Hopefully you will find the atmosphere soothing, relaxing and informal.

We aim to surprise and please you with our food, offering classic flavours in a country style with original touches that make quite a difference. We source from Herefordshire and Shropshire farms, producing and cooking everything ourselves, except for the deliberately short list of interesting cheeses, which are bought locally. Real ales are from the Wye Valley and Hobsons breweries, the ciders from Robinsons and Westons, the wine list again deliberately short, but we have tried to make it compatible with the menu.

At lunchtime, the choice ranges from Herefordshire steak ciabattas, bacon & organic brie baguettes and mixed-cheese ploughman’s to smoked haddock & leek soufflés and braised belly pork with home-made black pudding. In the evening, choices include Lugg trout, breast of chicken, haunch of venison and Welsh Border lamb. There are always two vegetarian main course options, and fish from our Cornish supplier.

We cater for dairy or gluten free diners. Vegans welcome – let us know you are coming.

Your pets are welcome. For dining, we have designated tables where dogs can be with their owners. In good weather you can sip your drinks in the ornamental terraced gardens or by the river, both lovely. See the photo for a taste.

We believe the dedication of Andrew and his chefs shows through in the food. Richard and Liz, owners for over 11 years are still very hands-on, Richard works front of house most days and still looks forward to meeting you. Please come and see us soon.
