Ponte Vecchio

Ponte Vecchio

Positioned in the historic heart of Hereford, between the Cathedral + the Old Bridge, we consider ourselves an important, longstanding part of Hereford's vibrant food scene. We are a husband & wife run trattoria with a small local feel. Leo runs the front of house and Alice is in the kitchen.

Since 2007, we have offered a selection of traditional Italian meals, coupled with more modern plates that show off Italian ingredients in an exciting, creative manner. Our menu changes frequently, with a focus on sustainability, and celebrates the best local + Italian produce that we can source.

We aim to recreate the passion of the Italian family table, and the charm, intimacy & atmosphere of our favourite venues of Leo's hometown Firenze.


Until late spring we will be offering takeaways at the weekend only.
Ordinarily, we are open Tuesday - Saturday evenings from 6pm.

Caring For The Planet

Sustainability is at the heart of our business. We believe that we are the first restaurant in Hereford to invest in a hot composter, and we encourage our guests to return our Vegware takeaway containers to us so that the packaging can turn to compost in just 12 weeks. We grow our own flowers for our tables in our garden and a selection of fruit and vegetables comes from our allotment. More can be found on our sustainability statement on our website.
