Little gem! Amazing food, lovely setting and very friendly staff. Had a wonderful evening. My only comment is that due to open plan setting it's quite noisy inside that meant we had to talk quite loudly. But overall wonderful

We had a fantastic evening. Fab food, fab atmosphere. Your staff gave us just the right amount of attention without being intrusive. I would recommend it as one of the best restaurants in Herefordshire. Thank you.

Lovely food and good atmosphere. Only issue was when we arrived we recieved an abrupt welcome into the restaurant. We arrived at 4:00PM, albeit 15 minutes early, but were accused of being early by 30 minutes. We were told there's usually a 30 minute wait for a table, which seemed irrelevant considering we had booked for 4:15 (Confirmation on emails). After travelling for around an hour just to visit this restaurant as a group we were all a bit put off. After seating, we thouroughly enjoyed the food and service, and I would recommend overall.

Best meal we have eaten for ages! Cooked to perfection. The side of cauliflower was incredible and the staff were so attentive and knowledgeable. Over the past couple of years my husband and I have struggled to find a place that does good food and good service, but you nailed it! Wish we lived closer x

This was the worst restaurant experience we have ever had. We had to wait 25 minutes for drinks to arrive and they only came then as we chased them. When the food arrived we had to sit with our steaks going cold with no accompaniments. When the chips finally came they were undercooked. We had to send them back but it took ages for the second batch to get to us so we had finished our steaks. Complete waste of time. We then complained and were told the manager would speak with us. After waiting ten minutes and no sign of the manager we decided to leave. The manager stopped us at the door and apologised. He advised he would email me with an apology and a response. He could see how visibly upset we were as it was supposed to have been a special meal. Needless to say I have not heard a thing from him. The whole experience was utterly shocking and for the prices you charge the standard and quality of food was appalling. We will not be back and will ensure all out family and friends in Hereford make sure they give The Bookshop a miss. Very disappointing in all areas......

Lovely and welcoming environment with friendly staff. Had a table booked and waited about 5-10 minutes to be seated, other than this the service and food was exceptional.

We had booked in for Sunday lunch and it was delicious. In particular the belly pork, vegetables and Yorkshire puddings. The only thing slightly disappointing was the beef (roast rump) which we felt was too lean to be really full of flavour. Puddings were delicious too!

Absolutely superb Chateaubriand. Cooked rare to perfection. Cannot fault any of the food. The service was excellent. We came from Manchester especially to eat at the restaurant and would return again and again. Next time, we’ll be trialling the Sunday lunch options! Thank you for a great evening.

We have visited your restaurant a number of times in the past but yesterday was by far the most disappointing. The food was luke warm at best with some of the veg overcooked, roast carrots were black??? Then to finish the meal my ordered cheese which came with thick bread not thin biscuits as you have served in the past?? My wife did not enjoy that at all. We did tell two of your servers that we were disappointed but they just seemed to shrug their shoulders and didn't seem bothered at all. I think they need some more customer service training!!!

Just lovely, staff attentive but not over the top, busy but added to the feel. Food well priced - we had brunch! Look forward to an evening meal soon.
