A HEREFORDSHIRE pub has shared more details on its refurbishment and what customers can expect from its reopening.

The Hope and Anchor, in Ross-on-Wye, has gone through extensive refurbishment over the last six months, with works now nearing completion.

It will officially be reopening on Thursday June 2 with a programme of music and other activities over the four-day jubilee celebrations.

The investment by the owner and the hard work and dedication by all builders and local contractors has meant that this once thriving riverside pub will be restored as a family-run business and community asset.


It will offer pub food, café, bar, contemporary fine dining restaurant, accommodation, live music, and events, as well as quality beers and ales and home-cooked food seven days a week.

There will also be 12 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms for people to stay in, with six rooms ready to book in June and a further six coming online by the end of the summer.

The pub has also developed its hut by the river, which will provide an outside pizza oven, hot and cold drinks, home-made cakes and again a range of bottled beers, ciders, and wines as well as some limited draught beer and cider.

The Pavilion, which is a sister restaurant to the Hope and Anchor pub, has been open since December 2021 providing a café style environment including home-made cakes and snacks in the daytime, and will continue to do so once the pub reopens.

During the evenings on Wednesday to Saturday, guests will be offered a contemporary fine dining experience with a cocktail bar downstairs, and a roast on Sundays.


People will be able to use the pub for private events, such as weddings and work functions, through the pub's parent company, Country House Weddings.

The pub will also be recognising the importance of the river Wye by hosting an array of facilities aimed at river users and local people. More details on this are still to be confirmed.

Lee Cruickshank, assistant general manager of the Hope and Anchor, said: "Exciting times ahead, and so many local residents being supportive of the business and investment which will provide a great experience to so many each and every day."
