Dining at Castle House

 

Read a recent review

You'll be spoilt for choice: choose between our Castle Restaurant overlooking Hereford's castle moat, and the more informal Ballingham Bar and Bistro.

Whether you eat à la carte in the Restaurant from head chef, Claire Nicholl's, seasonally-changing menu, or have a light lunch in the Ballingham Bistro, you'll experience the skill and innovation of Claire's kitchen team, and the best dining in Hereford.

Claire is one of the country's most talented chefs. She is passionate about sourcing her ingredients as close to the hotel as she can, and works closely with the huge variety of committed producers, including our own Ballingham Farm, whose livelihood is based in Hereford and the Herefordshire Marches. Her menus are imaginative and brilliantly executed, and it's no wonder that the Castle Restaurant is one of the most popular in the county. Don't miss it! See a sample menu here.

What they say...

 'Classy townhouse hotel with innovative style of cooking. The kitchen makes good use of local suppliers and comes up with bright, modern ideas. Sound techniques and an eye for presentation.'
AA Restaurant Guide

'The restaurant in the Castle House [is] first-rate...The main fillet of Herefordshire beef with mash, braised shin wrapped in leeks, horseradish jus and purple sprouting broccoli was perfectly cooked.'
The Times Cool Hotel Guide

'It will take another visit or two before I can pass judgement on Jesse Norman's claim that Hereford has great restaurants, plural; but that it has one at least is beyond doubt. Nicholls strikes me as a versatile, inventive chef who deserves greater recognition and respect.'
