Guidebook for Malvern Hills

Pubs
The Nag’s Head, WR14 2JG, is arguably the best pub in Malvern (with numerous awards) and only a 10-minite walk from the house. It is very cosy, with a roaring fire (in the colder months), no music, no TV and no game machines. It has a large selection of guest and local ales and ciders. Their food in the attached dining room goes down a treat but we strongly advise booking, especially for dinner. The service is excellent too. Dogs are welcome.

The Brewer’s Arms, WR14 4BQ, is a pleasant 40-minute walk from the house up North Malvern Road and West Malvern Road (where you pass the Malvern Hills Brewery, situated in a former quarryman’s gunpowder store) and has a terrace with “the best view in Herefordshire”. Homemade food, local beers (including Black Pear from the Malvern Hills Brewery) and super friendly service. Note that this pub is down a bumpy track and is not easily accessible.

The Chase in Upper Colwall is another cosy country pub, with a wood burner. It allows dogs and is popular with locals. The bar staff are lovely and the food is great. They start serving at 6:30pm – in case you’re planning a walk to end there, which is a nice afternoon option. In summer particularly, it is nice to sit on the deck and admire the view across Herefordshire to Wales. Large parties should book for dinner.

The Prince of Wales is a cosy country town pub, with a good programme of live music – just drop in. Better known for relaxed pints than the food, but on a delightful cobbled side street, which makes a pleasant way to end a day out in Ledbury.
