user reviews of Man of Ross Inn, Ross-on-Wye

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A smallish pub at the top of a hill and tucked slightly away from the centre of town, it nonetheless seems a popular spot and there were several punters enjoying the outside pavement seating on a recent, unusually warm, evening. Plenty of hanging baskets created an attractive appearance and the barman seemed friendly enough.

The pub is split in to two rooms, with the one on the right being more geared up for dining. The left hand room contains a small bar counter with a large black lintel above which has the name of the pub engraved in to it in gold lettering. Other than that it's all fairly traditional with a carpeted floor, wooden bench seating around the perimeter, a small black fireplace, a darts board and a plasma that was showing the Olympics. There is a bay window with some carved wooden window frames, reminiscent of the type you may expect to see in a church.

We didn't check the menu but the dining area looked to be full and an A-board outside advertised fresh fish arriving from Brixham several days a week.

The only beer on tap was Doom Bar, unless you count keg John Smith's Extra Smooth or Tetley Smooth Flow. Ciders faired slightly better with Stowford Press and Strongbow.

Good beer and good food cooked to order.

Walked around town on a rainy Aug bank hol Friday before plumping for the Man of Ross. Their confident publicity around their fish dishes lured us in - and the fish and chips was very tasty indeed. Nice batter with black pepper in it, and good chips. The Doom Bar (yes, now a bit overexposed, but still tasty) was fine.

They were in the process of getting set up for a cider festival. The barman explained the ciders to a fellow patron in some detail, concluding "now this one's a blackcurrant cider, that's more of a woman's drink". Made me chuckle.

Slight aroma of cleaning product, and piped local radio in the 'small 'dining room', but we enjoyed our grub along with the convivial surroundings. You could do far worse.

Attractive on the outside, but ordinary inside. Two cask beers - the dull and ubiquitous Doom Bar, and "Man of Ross Ale" which on close inspection of the pumpclip turned out to be brewed by Joshua Tetley. OK but unremarkable pub food. Having said that, none of the other pubs in the town seemed to offer anything more.
