This pub has an idyllic setting, right by the river. The only downside to that is the road down to it. I am sure I have seen it featured "worlds most dangerous roads"! Not much wider than the car it heads steeply down to the pub with no passing places. You can't see the car park and it looks as though you are driving in to the river! God only knows how bad it gets on a busy summers day?
The pub itself is decent but a little dirty (probably due to how busy it was). 3 beers from Wye Valley on - HPA, Butty Bach and another I didn't note. The HPA was just OK. To be honest I was thinking of the drive back up the road out! The advice from a local was "just keep your foot down"!
Next time I will use the ferry which was worth watching! You have been warned!

After an afternoon cycling I was ready for a beer, so did not hesitate to confirm the accuracy or otherwise of the previous reviewer's observations but headed straight for the bank of hand pumps on the bar. There were three Wye Valley beers, a cider and a house beer. I asked who brewed the Ferrieman beer, and was told it was Greene King (the 3.6% abv should have been hint enough that it was just Greene King IPA in very light disguise). So I decided to go for one of the Wye Valley beers, and plumped for a seasonal offering with a Brazilian themed pump clip. Unfortunately, this beer was on the turn, having an apple-y flavour to it that the brewer certainly didn't plan for. However, I had gone out of the door to the benches overlooking the river before taking my first swig, and by then my thirst took over and I just decided to treat it as though it was cider, which, what with it being sour and tasting of apples was not too difficult. That'll teach me to turn up my nose at what was probably a very nice GK IPA.

This is a traditional pub in a very pleasant spot alongside the river that has somehow managed to resist the temptation to turn itself in to a tourist magnet and has instead retained much of it's character. The only concession to tourists seems to be an old dresser just inside the door with an extensive selection of picked vegetables and preserves for sale!

The main bar area has an old flagstone floor, black beams on the ceiling and much exposed stonework on the wall, including the backdrop to the small corner bar counter. An old fire-place off to the left housed a wood burning stove, although the plasma stuck up above it looked a little out of place. Another fire-place at the rear had piles of logs alongside, old soda fountains on a shelf up above and various other earthenware vessels around. Both fireplaces had comfy old armchairs in front of them which must be a pleasant spot on a cold winter's evening. To the right was a smaller room with a tiled floor, pool table, darts board and quiz machine.

There are a couple of patio areas outside along by the river, and these are a pleasant spot to sit and watch the boats go past and the old rope drawn ferry where the pilot has to pull the boat across by stretching his arms up to the suspended rope. It all looked a bit hard work to me, and I worked up quite a thirst just watching.

Beers on tap were Butty Bach and Hop, Skip & Jump. Ciders were Ferryman's Cider, Stowford Press and Ross-on-Wye Farmhouse cider.
