Spoons from 08:00 on a Sunday morning. The Big Question, Full English or an All Day Brunch? In the end just before 12:00, I went for the All Day Brunch but they had run out Black Pudding. Never mind it’s a side order anyway.

You’ll notice that the Tomato is raw because that’s the only way to go. Extra Butter as usual but it could have been colder. I’m a bit fussy when it comes to everything.

Anyway off to test out Gordon Bennett’s (who was an American Newspaper guy). It’s owned by Wye Valley Brewery and it’s more Bar than Pub. Cask mostly Wye Valley, Keg mass market but the fridge is diverse and excellent. No WiFi and the ThreeUK LTE is only near the entrance, otherwise it’s 3G.  Really friendly staff.

On to FireFly Hereford after getting lost. Firefly is a Pub / Vegan Restaurant and there is one in Worcester too.  They have changed the layout and my usual table by the window has gone. I skipped food, still full from the Full English but when I go back in June, I’m going to test the Vegan Burger.

Just the one and via Tesco for Sandwiches for tea, it was back to The Hereford Beer House. The winner for drinking in Hereford.

It ticks all the boxes

  • Less than two hours away
  • Free parking
  • Approved (by me) hotel
  • All within walking distance
  • Local Spoons
  • Speciality Beer House
  • Supermarkets
  • Free WiFi

When where you are staying is next door to The Cider Museum, it all seems so right

Hereford is Beef Country, however I popped into Costa Coffee for a Coffee and Bacon Roll

On to The Kings Fee, the local Spoons. Where I find that Mild May is actually a thing in Hereford. I have a feeling that there may be a Mild in The Hereford Beer House. Not sure about Stonefish?

And aa Mild’s go it was rather complex and good. However time was pressing and it was time to find Gwatkin’s Micro Bar in The Butter Market. Their Cider was excellent and The Three UK LTE worked a treat.

The Sun was warm but the wind was cutting. Time to move unto The Hereford Beer House and who knew their own Mild at Tap #01

It all went a bit European and I met a couple of CAMRA guys and surprisingly we talked beer. What a wonderful place the Hereford Beer House is.
