Situated in the heart of this cosy Herefordshire market town The Inn at Bromyard is a cosy newly refurbished pub in a gorgeous Grade II* listed building with a fabulous timber frame construction, and is popular with locals and tourists alike.
Previously the Inn’s Manager, Sue Turton snapped up the lease when it was offered to her. We chat with Sue over a glass of wine…
Realising that the right mix of staff is crucial for any business she was thrilled when her younger son Josh decided to join the business in September last year. Josh is a natural; a great team leader and very popular with the customers.
Sue, the aroma from the kitchen is making our mouths water; tell us about the food you serve here…
Thank you, our food is all home-made; the menu is quite substantial – there are up to 28 mains on the menu any day except Sundays when we offer a choice of four or five roast meats: sirloin beef, lamb, pork, honey roast ham or chicken. Also on a Sunday we serve a fish dish, salmon or seabass, and also a vegetarian option.
All our produce is sourced locally; within the Hereford area mainly, although our fresh fish is from slightly further afield.
Do you run any special events here?
Yes, we do have theme nights; our Pie ‘n’ Pint night is extremely popular, a Mexican night is on the cards shortly, and also an open mic night as Josh is keen to show his talents and perform for the locals. We’ll be holding a special evening to trial some new dishes which will be pasta based as many of our customers have mentioned their love for Italian food and the fact that there is no where locally to get Italian dishes.
Also, Josh is keen to try out his cocktail making skills, so another evening in the planning is a special cocktail tasting night with 2 for 1 cocktails so watch this space!
And for those who wish to stay over we see you offer accommodation also…
Yes we have five beautiful rooms each with exposed beams; four double rooms which are all ensuite, and one family room which is also en-suite. We also have a private car park with 24 hour CCTV.
We imagine your breakfasts are substantial…
Absolutely; I cook breakfast each morning as I enjoy chatting with our clients and like to know they’ve enjoyed their stay and slept well. Our breakfast consists of fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, Full English, (or scrambled eggs on toast etc. if requested) and toast with marmalade, jam and marmite.
Do you hold private functions here?
Yes, we cater for birthday parties and funeral wakes etc; we can seat approximately 50 in our restaurant.
Opening times for the restaurant are 12pm – 2pm and 6pm – 9pm Monday to Friday (unless earlier bookings have been arranged for the local theatre evening meals) and 12pm – 3pm and 6pm – 9pm on Saturdays, 12pm – 3pm on Sundays.
We particularly loved the south facing walled courtyard garden which is the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of the High Street; we’ll be back.
