The first pub to greet us on our way in, on the No33 bus from Hereford. The exterior of this pub is very well maintained along with an equally well kept interior. This is a two roomed pub, with the lounge and bar side on the left and a right hand room mainly set out for dining. The lounge and bar side was very comfortable with a log burning stove set into a cream marble fireplace. This area also had a quality patterned turquoise wallpaper running along the left hand side wall. The seating was low tables and chairs, along with some bench seating and the floor was carpeted. Four handpumps serving three beers, Dartmoor Dragons Breath, Wye Valley HPA and London Pride. I went for the London Pride, which was in outstanding condition and only £3.30 a pint. An unusual ritual about the pub was why do some of the locals throw coins into the gents toilet/trough. I asked the young barman who told me as soon as we take the coins out, they immediately start adding coins again, he laughed and told me that the other week they found a new fiver in there. It has to be an eccentric local or a strange way of leaving a tip.

Quinno _ left this review about The Man of Ross

Nicely located on the junction and looks impressive due to the front courtyard garden with ‘a three fish sculpture’ (so says my notes) and a bust of John Kyrle (the eponymous Man of Ross, a c.17th philanthropist and a massive benefactor to the town) on the front wall. There are a couple of smallish rooms inside, with a bit of character to boot. Three ales on; Pride, Wye Valley HPA and a pretty good drop of Wye Valley Butty Bach – so a definite upswing from Roger’s findings a few years ago. Probably the best all-rounder in Ross and the one I’d definitely make a beeline for next time. 7.5

Roger Button left this review about The Man Of Ross Inn

John Kyrle, otherwise known as the Man of Ross was one a local 17th Century philanthropist who pretty much shaped Ross as a town and whose name is held in great reverence in these parts. The building was originally built in the 17th Century but was largely revamped in the 1830’s and became a pub in 1847.

The façade of the pub contains a short eulogy to Kyrle and a portrait whilst the 3 salmon sculpture outside is one of 3 around the town by local sculpture Walenty Pytel and was commissioned in 1997 by the the local Disrict Council.

The pub is listed by CAMRA as having an interior of some regional historic interest and whilst the pub looks quite sizeable from the outside, it is deceptive with just 2 smallish rooms once you get the front door. The main bar to the left has bare floors and simple furnishings with some old town pictures, fireplace and TV at one end. The smaller room to the side is largely for dining.

The pub was quite busy for an early evening but service was efficient and the ambience was welcoming enough. Despite all the enticing aspects of the pub it is let down a little by a disappointingly mainstream selection of beers with the 3 ales comprising of Old Speckled Hen, Doom Bar and Adnams Broadside.

It’s a pub that certainly has its own charms and merits but is probably not somewhere that warrants going widely out of the way for
