Mid 19th century pub known locally as the "Pub in the Field". Quite why there's a pub here is anybody's guess but perhaps there's a connection to the village's Chartist history. The pub was refurbished in 2015 and now has a large restaurant extension. I'd say it's primarily now a dining rather than drinking pub because what remains of a bar area is dominated by large furniture that would suit the dining room better. In fact, the bar is arguably just a "holding area" while you wait for your table to be readied. That said, the food was fantastic yesterday lunchtime (as was the service) and, even though there were probably no more than 20 people in the whole pub and some of the dishes were not cheap, we enjoyed our visit immensely. The £3.40 a pint Dodford Pale Ale (Banks's Sunbeam?) was the best of the ales (it's their most popular) although we also tried the Wye Valley HPA (£3.60) and Butty Bach (£3.90). A bit of a journey for us but, if it were more local, we'd return without doubt.

We thought we'd give The Dodford another chance after a few months for the new owner's to settle in and it was definitely worth it as the beer was much improved with 4 decent ales.
It was no busier than it used to be despite the 50k refurb but we will return.

Someone told me about this place so we made a trip out. What a find. Very nice setting and a truly impressive choice at the bar. Only sorry we had to drive so couldn't try a few more beers.

Style of the place is pretty 'honest' and basic but it was clean, very friendly, both staff and customers, and the food looked good. Planning to go back only wish they ran a mini bus to the town and back so I could enjoy more than the one pint.

Fantastic country pub, and one we visit regularly - always got good beer and cider on, and always a pleasant welcome.

Food is good, but for us the best feature of the pub is the large beer garden / events they run during the year - plus they are dog friendly too - can't think of anywhere else I would rather spend a summers afternoon drinking
