We don't like to boast (honestly!) but Herefordshire does do a rather tasty line in gastropubs. Seasonal produce is their superpower and they are champions of local provenance, including the county's cider, beer and spirits.
Finding them is half the adventure, they're often nestled down country lanes or tucked in tiny villages. Wooden beams are a frequent feature as are log fires in the colder months. You're guaranteed a warm welcome, usually extending to four-legged friends too.
Plot a walking route which allows for lunch in one of these special spots or drive out for dinner. Even better, stay the night!
