Dining at Castle House

Following the Government's announcement, we would like to confirm that our restaurant. bar and bistro are closed until further notice.

 In normal times at Castle House you can eat in our award-winning Castle Restaurant which overlooks the pretty gardens and the old Hereford Castle moat, in our Bar & Bistro and on the Garden Terrace. 

Our Head Chef Gabor Katona and his skilled team are passionate about sourcing ingredients locally. Herefordshire has an abundance of innovative, independent food and drink producers whose livelihood is based in the county and the Marches, many of whom have long-established relationships with Castle House.

Our seasonal menus, which reflect these close associations, change regularly with much of the fresh produce coming directly from the kitchen garden on our nearby Ballingham Hall farm.   

Gabor Katona's 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! (Scroll down for gallery)

We recommend that you book a table to avoid disappointment.

What they say....


'The cathedral city of Hereford is the logical urban base for exploring the Wye Valley, and this hotel, straddling the Castle Pool (a remnant of the Norman moat), is the best place to stay.  Travel's tip: Rooms in the hotel are traditional in style, whereas those in the nearby townhouse are more contemporary.  Sunday Times Travel Magazine 2020 Instant Escapes

'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......'
