Will Larter left this review about The Hostelrie

An unlikely looking building but it turns out to be a very good pub, with a seasonal award from the local Camra branch to prove it. The impression of a hotel or restaurant on initially entering is soon dispelled, because there's a proper pub-type bar counter with four hand pumps. The bar faces a double room, split between a dining area to the front of the building and a drinkers area near the bar; there's a separate restaurant. The internal walls have had the plaster hacked off, which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't; probably a slight thumbs up on this occasion. Similar doubts about the staff uniform, as I noticed that both the female servers were wearing knee boots and tight black jeans; I can't comment on the men - they may well have been equally sexily clad.

Of the four hand pumps, two had Wye Valley beers on and one had a perry, while the fourth had a pump clip turned around that may have been a cider. My Wye Valley Bitter was very good; actually my contemporaneous note says "excellent". There were lots of pictures on the walls; my notes say that not one of them was straight. I also noted that the pub would lose a mark for the background music, but I think a 7 is fair for overall pub experience. I'd certainly go again if in the area during opening hours (which should be checked before setting off, as they don't by any means always open all day).
