Our locally sourced, home cooked food.
Gino and Rachael welcome you to The Temple Bar Inn, Ewyas Harold. Independently owned and first licensed in the 1850s, the beautiful Virginia Creeper clad, stone building changes appearance throughout the year, from light to dark green leaves during spring and summer, to an autumnal fiery red and is a real focal point for the village.
Assured of a warm welcome from landlord and locals, a roaring wood burner in the winter, and a beautiful sun drenched rear courtyard in the summer, The Temple Bar Inn with its 3 ensuite rooms is perfect for a relaxing staycation exploring the beautiful Golden Valley.
As well as numerous local walks and the Ewyas Harold Common stretching to over 120 acres, we are also just 12 miles from both Hereford and Abergavenny and the start of the Black Mountains, and just over an hour away from Pen-Y-Fan and the Brecon Beacons.
Our well stocked bar offers 3 real ales on hand pumps, one of which is permanently allocated to the local favourite, “Butty Bach” from the Wye Valley Brewery, with 2 rotating guest ales, as well as a good selection of draught lagers and cider, both local and mainstream.
If pints are not your tipple, we are particularly proud of our gin collection, boasting over 35 different types including London Dry and flavoured, with our house favourite being Hillbilly Gin, distilled less than 10 miles away by Black Mountain Botanicals (we know them as Lloyd and Glyn!) in Michaelchurch Escley.
Our kitchen is masterfully run by Head Chef Natalie Parker, who has become somewhat of a celebrity for her Sunday lunches (advance booking is seriously advised!). Pastry trained, Natalie prides herself in creating seasonal, traditional menus using locally sourced ingredients (Mailes Butchers are so close they deliver on foot!), and the most exquisitely tasting desserts.
