“Not that many cans and bottles of beer and cider, but enough for a couple of people having some great burgers. Cool place, friendly staff, quick service and a great selection of burgers. Very worth a visit.“

68 /100 THE BUTTERMARKET, MAYLORD STREET
“This is a market stall within the indoor market, sharing facilities with other stalls nearby. The ciders appear to be all from the Gwatkin range plus there are bottles of cider and beer on sale, some beer under the Gwatkin beer range livery brewed at Staffordshire. Interesting and friendly place, can be combined with great food from a nearby stall.“

Hereford Beer House (Beer Store)
65 WEST STREET
“This is on the west side of the town in quite an industrial part of Hereford, quite surprising to find it situated where it is. It is half bottle shop, half tap house with a decent range of the better craft brewers plus a few ciders, well it is Hereford! I found the bottle prices to be a bit steep for me, so I didn't take any away however the tapped beer was fairly reasonable. Good service, it was a little quiet on our visit but well worth going in.“

“Quite a reasonable Wetherspoons this one, a little off the town centre but part of a row of drinking caverns, like Yates and a few others. Clean and tidy on our visit, lots of seating. The beer range is small and mostly nationals, but there was a couple of more unusual beers to try. It's fine.“

Firefly (Bar)
16 KINGS STREET
“Visited on 4th November 2017. In the city centre this is a nice little pub, dark with plenty of nooks and crannies to relax in but with decent decor this is quite modern but cosy at the same time. The beer range is good with a mix of cask and keg, picked up a couple of new beers here, service good, prices good. Worthy of a stop if you're out in town.“

Hereford Beer House (Beer Store)
65 WEST STREET
“Visited on 4th November 2017. Single roomed bar and bottle shop a decent walk through the city centre from the station, it is on the way to the Odyssey place so worth the detour. Decor is smart and modern, the fridges well presented. The beer range was really good with a solid mix of styles and brewers. Guy behind the bar was super friendly and loved beer. Prices were great. Really liked this place and would definitely revisit.“

No food available at our visit, short supplies after new year, Talkative person behind the bar, gave us good advice on which beers to try.Good place. (Visited with Holmen 2 2.1.18)“

Hereford Beer House (Beer Store)
65 WEST STREET
“Four of us visited on Saturday 2017-10-07. It's a small place, but with room to seat about twenty-five people maximum. Decor is minimalist and un-fussy. Service was efficient and fast (and when we ordered the cheese platter, one of the staff immediately ran off down the street to the cheese shop, rather than saying "sorry, the platter's off". Now that's what I call service). There are six taps plus four ciders on bag-in-box, plus a selection of about 120 bottles and cans in the fridges. These were all (to my eye) modern craft beers and ciders - I didn't notice any trad beers at all. On tap when we visited were Beavertown, Cloudwater, Marble (can't remember the others). The food is just bar snacks, but of the highest quality (be sure and try the Hereford Hop cheese with a good dry cider). Prices were very reasonable, and there was a good mix of types in (ie you don't need to be a hipster). All in all, you should definitely visit.“

“Love this pub; first visited back in the day it was the home of ’The Spinning Dog’ brewery. So named because their dog would fart and then spin round to try and bite his fart: great fun watching him spinning around, but a bit smelly! Ownership and brewery name has changed but it’s still a lovely and interesting bar to visit, the decor is just so different to almost anywhere else in the world I have been to. Staff and beers are fine. Never seems to be busy though, a real shame. Only been in on Saturday lunchtimes before Grimsby Town games against Hereford or once on a CAMRA trip, again on a Saturday afternoon.“

“Visited in the summer of 2016, when we it was so warm we sat in the courtyard behind the pub, rather than its traditional interior. The rarely seen Firefly beers were not on offer, but the alternatives of Tiny Rebel and Magic Rock more than made up for that. The service in this decent pub was fine.“

“Visited in the summer of 2016. In common with the other raters, I found this place to be highly impressive. We visited for a drink rather than to buy bottle, so I must admit I did not inspect the contents of the fridges. My focus was entirely on the Schlenkerla Fastenbier on tap, which was about the last beer I’d expect to find in Hereford. It was excellent, as was the service and company. The cider list looked very commendable too. Worth seeking out.“

“First visit here and what an impressive place. We are cask ale drinkers but were happy to try a couple of the tap beers, and after enjoying a Cloudwater and Thornbridge ale we went on to Brew by Numbers and Beavertown. Relaxed friendly bar where you can get a snack too. Had a look in the large fridges at the bottle selection and ended up with a bottle of Two Roads brewery Expressway, and a can of Belching Beaver brewery Peanut Butter Milk Stout. Wished we lived closer to this excellent bar.“

“Enjoyed our visit to this bar where they had 3 Wye Valley beers plus a Tiny Rebel brewery guest on the bar. There were 8 casks on stillage, 2 of which were on so we had the Tiny Rebel and the excellent Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby from these. They are going to host a beer festival shortly, cannot remember dates. Long room with the bar leading back to doors out to a pleasant outside drinking / smoking area. A TV playing with the news on by the bar, and at the back was a large screen where I expect sport will be shown. Upstairs is another seating area with a smaller bar which can be used as a function room. A selection of bottled beers also available.“

Firefly (Bar)
16 KINGS STREET
“Old pub with a recent revamp due to new ownership in the centre of Hereford within view of the cathedral. Layout allows for lots of hidden seating areas, accessible under low beams and creaky floors. In any other town I’d usually expect a pub like this to have a few ropy cask offerings and the standard Guinness and Heineken on tap. Here there seemed to be 5 cask beers and around 10 on keg, with some decent US craft mingling with one or two UK craft (Tiny Rebel, Salopian), plus a couple of ’real’ ciders. Adorning the walls are Duvel, Chouffe and Firestone Walker signage. It isn’t strictly beer-lead though, offering cocktails and a pie / burger type menu which broadens the clientele, but for an interesting independent pub with a decent beer choice I can’t think of a better one in Hereford.“

“Great indie beer shop / taproom shining like a beacon in a county, and general area of the country, that is a bit of a barron desert for modern craft beer. Run by an enthusiastic young couple who are passionate about interesting beer and great local cider - indeed, there are 6 of both cider and beer on draft, all interesting well chosen stuff. The bottled beers are housed in a large American-style fridge unit with an impressive selection of on the pulse new releases and solid Belgian / German classics. Nice, simple, relaxed vibe here. Only wish i lived closer, I’d be here all the time!“

“This is a pleasant wine merchants near the heart of Hereford, not far from the bus drop off. The selection is mostly fairly local bottles and cans on a couple of racks near to the door, quite a reasonable spread. The only bottle shop that I could find in Hereford with a reasonable range so well worth a visit.“

“There is a narrow frontage to this ex Laundrette, but it is certainly Tardis like inside as the pub is amazingly spacious. There is an eclectic furniture mix, so easy to find somewhere comfortable. Shame about the 4pm opening hours as it made it difficult to tie in the bus, but at least the bus stop is just a minute down the road. The bar is on the right and promises much, however; on our visit, delivered only 4 beers in total, one of which was a keg. The Odyssey connection provided 2 of the beers, including the keg. The quality was good, although the beers were quite similar, nothing darker available on our visit. We would visit again, hopefully on a busier day.“

“Large pub at the top end of Widemarsh street, multi roomed, felt like a hotel bar with a separate restaurant. This seems to be a chain that has crept up on us, they have places all over the Midlands but this is the first I have come across. Not a massive beer choice, although did seem to have bottles plus a couple of beers from a local Brewery. Really friendly bar guy, very helpful. Certainly worth a visit.“

We manged to get a place in the courtyard which at least gave an aura of calm. They do seem to have regular Brecon Brewery beers available, which at least gives visitors something to go at. Not highly recommended but certainly worth a look.“

“This pub has a narrow frontage on Kings Street, just along from the cathedral. There is a small outside seating area to the front, which was handy as we waited for Derek and Kelsey there. The interior is slightly dark but relaxed and comfortable, you can see the link to the Firefly in Worcester. The beer range seems more extensive here though, there was a lot of decent choices. The food was well presented and tasty, although a bit burger led. I must say I really enjoyed it here and was the best pub in Hereford on our visit.“

“Proper traditional pub just off the centre of Hereford, an easy walk. A locals pub, simple, no gimmicks, there appeared to be a bar area and a lounge area with outdoor seating too. Multiple winner of Herefordshire pub of the year, which you can understand, although there are some new kids on the block now giving them competition. Lots of Hand Pulls available but all the beers were Wye Valley, even the ’guest beer’. Well worth a visit.“

Firefly (Bar)
16 KINGS STREET


We visited The Firefly which is situated on King Street, Saturday 23rd July 2016 we being me, Loz, Jude, Baz, Georgia and Dom, this is a close to the Beer House which is another newish’ kid on the block opening last November and just a short walk from The Beer in Hand which sits the other of A49 (an underpass allows for less hazardous crossing of this busy road) however for a more permanent and obvious landmark the Cathedral and River Wye are both very close by. Not forgetting that Hereford is actually a fairly small city so nothing in that far away.

This pub has taken over what used to be The Orange Tree according to Baz. The chaps who run one of my favourite pubs in Worcester (also called the Firefly) run this place, so on the basis that the Worcester pub has done very well now for quite a few years there is every chance that this is also likely to succeed. Back to the pub, it looks a nice enough place from the outside. A creamy off-white exterior as recall with a couple of table’s and chairs on the pavement for watching the world go by. Inside it quite dark, (possibly seeming darker because it was so bright outside). It seems an old building so I guess any internal refit was probably a little limited owing to wooden supports and beams. The bar is ahead as you enter and is on the LH wall. The place seemed narrow and yet there appeared rooms off of the main section. We walked on to the back garden/patio and sat here with our beers.

The beer choice was pretty decent with a good choice of kegs 10-12 with Magic Rock Shredder a first for me, and 6 cask offerings with Totally Brewed. Tiny Rebel and Harbour amongst the real ale selection. We also opted for a Pressure Drop Wu Gang Chops the Tree Foraged Herbs Edition in bottle (another first for me) which was a decent and refreshing Hefeweizen for such a pleasant day. Service was swift and with a smile, the chap serving also seemed an enthusiastic sort.

Like the Beer House this is another great addition to the Hereford beer scene. In this area of town you have this place The Beer House and the Beer in Hand all close by and offering a most pleasant little crawl to bimble and try some excellent beers. For it’s size I think Hereford may well put Oxford to shame.“

We visited the Beer House on Saturday 23rd July 2016 we being me, Loz, Jude, Baz, Georgia and Dom, for orientation purposes it is a just a short walk from The Beer in Hand which sits the other side of the A49, it’s also close to the recently opened Firefly and for a more permanent and obvious landmark the Cathedral, is close. All in all it is reasonably centrally located place in what is let’s face it a fairly compact small city.

From the outside its mostly all glass with a large window(s) to the LH side of the door. Inside on the RH wall a board displays all that is on tap, so today Mikkeller Nelson Sauvingnon, Moor Raw, Magic Rock Cross Pollination were amongst the six beer kegs. There were similar amount of cider choices also. A bench seating arrangement in front of the bar and up to the window allows a group of you to sit together, there is also a little more seating running alongside the RH wall. The decor is simple with no unnecessary tat around. Behind the bar a large chiller room acts as storage for beers that are not on out in the fridges (towards the rear of this place).

Beer choice was as described pretty good on tap, I am guessing this is probably the first place in the county to got Mikkeller on tap. The bottled choice however was even better. I picked up Moor Claudia and PMA in cans, Firestone Walker Luponic Distortion in can, Magic Rock Human Cannonball in can and one or two others. Price I thought were very, very reasonable, my cans for takeaway were certainly on a par with Beer Gonzo and Cotteridge. On tap the Mikkeller Nelson Sauvingnon was the priciest at £2.60 a third but it’s 9% and I would imagine that would still be significantly cheaper than many London Craft places.

The young couple who run this place seemed very down to earth. enthusiastic, knowledgeable and look committed to making a real success of this place, I chatted to the female half of the duo for a while. It was nice to see it is getting some footfall with a few people other than us in here. I like the combination of taps and shop, I think that is a shrewd move, we only had the one beer to drink as we had two drivers with us, however me, Baz and Dom all spent over £20 on beer to take away. I forgot to mention that there is a small food choice, cold meats, speciality cheeses, etc

All in all another great addition to the Hereford beer scene and with the Firefly recently opened around the corner, Beer in Hand close by plus Barrels not far away, Hereford is starting to punch above its weight from a beery perspective.“

“Primarily a cider museum but also has a very good shop selling a range of cider, not just from Herefordshire but also southern counties and the west country. The museum is pretty good and informative, housed in Bulmer’s original building before they moved. You can walk through the old cellars, bottling room, see all the old machinery, old promotional posters and bottles and even see the actual offices as they would’ve looked back in the day. Anyone wanting to learn about the history of cider making should definitely hit this place up. And buy some cider on the way out!“

“Located in a converted Laundrette. Cask-oriented with an impressive temperature-controlled contraption behind the bar housing said casks. No keg on my visit a while ago, but I hear they now do have keg, along with some ’craft’ bottles. They have a CAMRA-friendly no music policy which made it a bit uncomfortable during our visit. Indeed, seems to pander to a CAMRA audience with the beer selection too. A number of Bag in box ciders.“

Tried a Hereford Celtic as the most interesting beer on offer. Prices were very good indeed. Beer quality less so. Staff were good and got served quickly. It’s was OK. Would recommend it personally but is a handy stop hence I added it.“

The owners now run Odyssey Brewing Co and their beers featured on the taps. All were in decent condition and worth a try, also a couple of keg beer with the Magic Rock collab with Cigar City on. Mostly local guests too. The 7.8% Porter was £3.50 a pint so very good value. It’s the best place I visited in Hereford by a long way. It’s excellent!“

“A strange one this, I came back from living away for a few years to find this place the most popular pub in Hereford and it is certainly a busy place. Price probably has something to do with it. Great pub if you want to meet people and enjoy the buzz of a busy venue. If, like me, you are a bit of a beer geek then don’t bother. It’s Wye Valley or Wye Valley (yawn). Staff very friendly but for a place that wins CAMRA pub of the year most years a very uninspiring selection of beer.“

“I’m not really a reviewer by nature but felt compelled to come on and review my local Beer in Hand. Having gone away to Uni in London I was spoilt by the beer selection. Returning to the Ford I found myself in a beer desert with most pubs offering up pretty desultory beer. I used to be a huge Wye Valley fan but having actually tried lots of other beers whilst away I have realized (yes I am going to say it) that Wye valley beer is solid but uninspiring - actually I would never drink the stuff by choice. As for Doombar, another stock beer found is some of the pubs in town, the less said the better. I’ve been back for a few years now and generally drink in Worcester and Cardiff simply to get some choice. THANK GOD for beer in hand. I don’t know if the other reviewers are local but I suspect not? If you were then you’d know that beer in hand has been a godsend to the local beer scene in Hereford. In the last few weeks I’ve had an 8.4% double IPA, an unfined hazy hoppy red beer, a chilli stout, beers from Great Heck, Okells, Tiny Rebel, Bristol Beer Factory etc some of my fave breweries that I’d never dreamt of seeing in my home town if I am honest . These are beers that quite simply I would not have been able to drink in Hereford until Beer in Hand opened. Ok, there are some safer beers on generally but given the size of Hereford that isn’t really surprising. I am a beer lover, ergo I go to the pub to meet friends and drink good beer, I am I guess a ’regular’ as I live near to the pub so visit most week or every other week. The service has always been fine - but really bar the staff being rude to me in a pub I can’t say I give two hoots about ’service’. It’s great not having to catch a train to Cardiff every weekend if I want a decent pint long may it continue. Also as a regular I think the comments by Theydon Bois are fair enough but less relevant now, I actually agree that I’d rather have a selection of national good beers rather than average local beers. There certainly seem to be a lot less local stuff on recently which frankly is not a bad thing in my opinion!“

Not sold on the layout of the pub, quite disjointed and lent the place an odd atmosphere. The staff/owners weren’t overly friendly to us which was unfortunate although they’ve clearly made friends. A great option if you’re in Hereford for beer choice.“

I visited here back in 2000 and it was nowhere near as busy then - however the table football table has vanished! 4 sprawling rooms surrounding a central bar. There is also a well appointed multi level beer garden out the back with sheltered areas and heat lamps for smokers - this was also packed ! Beers all from Wye Valley as you’d expect, half a dozen cask and one keg, plus some guest ciders. The place was well staffed and we never had to wait despite the crowds. There was also some free food on the bar, think it was some kind of Chinese stew but all that was left by the time we arrived was a few prawn crackers! Decent stop if in Hereford and great VFM at £2.30 a pint!“

“Me and Baz visited here twice on Saturday 9th November 2013 once it had opened and then again early evening. A much needed venue in Hereford showcasing a very decent choice of cask ales and ciders & perries. This place was a former launderette and is long slim place opening out at the far end with the casks facing diagonally towards you in a purpose built substantial sturdy metal racking with clear perspex fronts to view the casks. The place was understandable fairly quiet on our first visit with a few eager looking CAMRA types and just the owner for company. Beer choice was good without being hugely exciting. The beer choice was Elland, Kelham Island, Otley, Tiny Rebel, Wobbly, Ludlow etc amongst the offerings. I understand that the choice runs to ten casks at weekends and about half that during the week. Beer prices were very reasonable and having chatted to the owner herein lies one of the issues. Clearly they are very, very keen to get a more interesting and diverse range of beers however until they are more established then they are a little wary about putting on beers that may cost more both for them and the punters as there is a reluctance on the part of the punter to pay much more than say £3.50 plus when they can get Wye Valley and others decent beers for a lot less in other establishments in town and it is challenge they face to pull people away from what they know and trust into trying new beers. From my experience Herefordians being a fairly rural and isolated population adapt to change a little slower than some, (I hope I am not being too contentious with that statement). I rather liked this place and can only see it getting better. As Colin mentions in his review below this is close to the town but across that hideous sort of inner ring road which ruthlessly annexes this part of town from the centre, access is via a subway. It is close to Sainsburys and on the road heading out to Kington.“
