The Experience

Kilpeck – known for its Norman church – has a second string to its bow: a super little country inn with a facelift. It stands on the edge of the village overlooking beautiful fields, ten miles south of Hereford. Outside, smart white walls sparkle in the sun. Inside: old stone, slate floors and a warm contemporary feel. Find darts in the locals’ bar, alongside the daily papers and a smouldering fire, and original beams, candle lanterns and painted panelling in the airy restaurant. Dig into the sort of food you’d hope to find in a country inn: River Exe mussels in a cider and sage cream sauce with hand cut chips; shepherd’s pie, green beans, redcurrant and red wine jus. Rooms are above, crisp and comfortable. Named after local rivers, all have countryside views, plus pocket sprung mattresses, Egyptian cotton sheets and cloud-soft duvets. Bathrooms are spotless and sparkling. It’s as local as possible and seriously green, what with low food miles, hi-spec insulation and a rainwater tank. Walkers rejoice: the Black Mountains and Offa’s Dyke are close.

Lovely staff and a very nice pub - we had a very good meal here and would return if in the locality again.

Sally, Pershore

Very welcoming and rooms are a very high standard, children loved it, food fab and cider the best I've had.

Catriona, Dyserth

I knew it years ago as the Red Lion. Enjoyed it back then. Stayed at Kilpeck Inn one night en route London via Cotswolds Aug '16. Wonderful. Next time we'll have a few nights. Great pub, good food wonderful team.

Michael, Ribchester

One of the most welcoming hidden treasures of the area. Warm and friendly staff, great food and warm, cosy rooms. Leagues above your average chain hotel -even the expensive ones !
