About The Trooper

Seasonality and local produce are at the heart of The Trooper. We go to great lengths to seek out and work with the best suppliers. Wherever possible we use British growers or farmers. We strive to always work with companies that share our vision and passion for great produce.

Our wood fired oven has come directly from Italy to our kitchen to give you that authentic taste at your local. Our chefs have worked to create a pizza menu for you that's just a little bit special...

Our longhorn steaks are reared on Huntsham Farm in the beautiful Wye Valley. Huntsham Longhorn beef has been produced for over 200 years and is hung for a minimum 35 days. This ensures the fine grained, well marbled meat reaches its ideal maturity and full flavour potential.

Our chefs have tailored our menu to give you a great selection of different dishes. From succulent chargrilled steaks, market fresh fish and homemade burgers. We are also more than happy to cater for any special dietary requirements here at The Trooper.

Join us for a drink in the bar. Choose from our great selection of ales, carefully selected wines and spirits and take a seat in the warm surroundings next to our open fireplace. When the weathers on our side you can take it outside and enjoy the outdoor lounge area, great for relaxing with friends and a sharing plate. We also offer full table service on the terrace so you can enjoy a full restaurant meal in the luxury of the sun and great views!

Were all about quality, great steaks, great wines, great service and great times!

We love traditional roast dinners with friends, family and proper produce. Why not try our sharing table where you can enjoy a whole roast joint with all the traditional trimmings with your family and friends. Please ask for details.

Excellent food and service. Many thanks to our waitress Lucy F who looked after us extremely well. The only downside (and I’m knit picking here) was that it was very noisy but it said it all that it was so busy for a Monday evening!! We will be back.

Overall a good, repeat experience. Few points to note: Virtually no Chicken options on the menu. I was told there wasn't any Ham - but clearly saw somebody else receive it later in the evening. Service from Main to Dessert was incredibly slow. Kids running in and out of the fire exit all night. The place was uncomfortably hot all night.

Booked a table for 2 on the 3 courses for £30 with unlimited drinks for 2hrs, upon arrival seated quickly menu was a little short with not a vast choice. Food was cooked lovely and flavoursome , drink service was a little slow that’s what let the experience down. Asked for a refil on our drinks and waited almost 15 minutes at one point. Atmose was friends but does get very load when having a conversation we found ourselves having to shout. Not sure if we would book another all inc course.

Great food let down by poor service. Food took over an hour from ordering to arriving at our table. After the main meals were brought it then took a further ten minutes before the vegetables arrived and that was only after I went and chased. After the meal I also had to go and find someone to request the bill only to find ALL of the waiting staff were standing in the kitchen chatting. A shame that the restaurant was let down by the awful service as the quality of the food was very good.

All 6 of us enjoyed all of our food. We’ve all said we’ll go back as there’s lots more things on the menu we want to try! It was a busy Friday night but we didn’t feel like the service was in any way slow and our waitress kept coming round to the table checking everyone was ok for drinks etc. The cherry on top was being given a complimentary dessert after the waitress spotted it was my birthday, it made our visit that extra bit special! Thank you

Although it wasn’t a terrible experience there were a few things that were a bit disappointing on our visit on this occasion. Obviously it was very busy and I have taken this into consideration however when I booked our table I did specify that I required two high chairs for our table. On arrival there were no high chairs at the table and one was brought over straight away but we had to wait 25-30 minutes for the second to be brought even after asking. It appeared that they did not have enough at the time as they were all in use. We also had to ask twice for an initial drink order to be taken. Drinks were delivered promptly and further drinks were offered regularly and delivered promply. There was a fairly long wait between our starters and mains the waiter did come and apologise and let us know just before they were delivered. The standard of the meals was ok not as good as we have had there before but they looked to be very busy, they were hot and tasty none the less. My young daughters meal was quite disappointing, we ordered her the Sunday roast chicken. Firstly it wasn’t delivered until 5-10 mins after everyone else’s and by the time it was cool enough for her to eat she was getting very upset because she was hungry. I expected a proper roast dinner but just as a child’s portion and was disappointed to find all she had on the plate was mash, green veg and chicken. There was no carrots/roast potatoes/Yorkshire ect that you would have expected being advertised as a ‘roast dinner’. When the bill was requested I checked over it and we had been over charged for two items, the children’s roast and one of the drinks. They were not priced as advertised so I had to ask for this to be amended. Overall the atmosphere seemed rushed, busy and noisy, there was only 6 adults on our table and it was so noisy I couldn’t even talk to the people at the other end of our table. I didn’t notice any music in the background but that might have been as it was so noisy in the restaurant. The team were friendly and helpful. I don’t think I would return here at peak times again which is a shame but would probably try again when it’s quieter.

Beautiful place with service and food excellent. Would highly recommended to anyone for both a romantic meal and larger group celebrations. It’s not the cheapest place but well worth every penny. Will definitely be returning.

Myself and wife attended for an evening meal at 1900. We found The Trooper was in a lovely tranquil setting, when we first arrived there were a number of all female groups who were very excitable and loud. Now I am not averse to people being loud or having a good time but this was beyond excessive and with how the dining area is found that the sound echoed all around. The beginning of what was supposed to be a nice relaxing meal was far from that. By the time we had finished our meals which were excellent the groups had left and it was more the atmosphere we expected but it was too late to enjoy. We both had very good food and the service was good (I perhaps would have expected a duty manager to address the noise issues after a few complaints) and staff clearly work well as a team. Not sure that we would return and that is a shame because the food was so good.

Another great meal at the Trooper with my family - great service as always - albeit with a slight hiccup in that our mains were brought out before our starter - but quickly rectified. See you again soon!

First time at the restaurant and impressed with the decor, atmosphere and quality of the food. Service was a bit slow, although not busy when we arrived and prices are at the top end of what you would expect to pay at a city based restaurant - which this isn’t. Would go back again.
