Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Barrels

Finally managed a visit to this semi-legendary ale pub, albeit under the strange post-pandemic circumstances. The traditional multi-room, slightly split-level interior was fairly quiet on this late afternoon visit, but the rear patio area was almost at capacity. Not all the handpumps were operational, but four Wye Valley beers were available including the rarely-seen Wholesome Stout.

I first came to this pub at around the turn of the century when the area at the rear was still the brewery but even then they were talking about finding larger premises. After forty years Wye Valley is more of a major regional brewer for Mid Wales & Borders than a micro but their old school beers are still well worth seeking out. This is the obvious place to do that although they do now have six other tied outlets including two others in Hereford.
It is a multi-room pub with a central bar. One area has darts and a match was completing on my Monday evening visit. One of the back rooms is taken up by a pool table. The area at the rear where the brewery was now hosts a pleasant outdoor drinking area and there seems to be some sort of function room.
They serve six Wye Valley beers and I had a couple of HPAs which were excellent value at just £2.50.
Definitely a "must visit" pub in Hereford.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Barrels

Service with a smile and a choice of six Wye Valley ales. On the bar were their three core ales, Butty Bach, HPA, Wye Valley Bitter, plus a Golden Ale, a Stout and this month's special Dorothy Silver Lining. A good traditional pub with a great atmosphere.
