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.

This is the second time i’ve eaten here in two weeks. Once again the food was fabulous and great value. The service was excellent and i don’t know what you are doing with regard to training but the staff are ALL without exception of a very high calibre. All courteous, WITH personalities, looked like they enjoyed their jobs, all delivering a very high standard of service. What lovely people. Well done, it sets you apart! And makes a delightful change.

As soon as we walked in we were welcomed and shown to our table. The service was very attentive and nothing was to much trouble.the food was delicious and cooked to perfection

The food is always delicious but the service is often quite slow. All staff members are lovely and helpful but there don’t seem to be enough people on to give service in a decent amount of time. I always warn my babysitter I may be a while when dining here!

Took my husband and two children for a birthday meal. The service was very slow. The food was well below average. My husband had to send his meal back. The ladies toilet clearly hadn’t been checked and cleaned. It’s a shame as this used to be a lovely friendly pub with good food. Very disappointed and will not be returning again.

Lovely food served very quickly but apart from that service was quite poor! Very hard to attract a member of staff for another drink

We haven’t been for a while and were hoping that previous experiences of slow service may have improved but NO. We arrived to unclear communication from the manager about whether our table was ready despite arriving exactly on time. We sat at the bar for a while and then had to go and ask him again whether our table was ready. Then we waited roughly 40-50 minutes for our starters and then when the main course arrived one of the steaks was over cooked, asked for blue but came medium. It was sent back and returned with a new one and an excuse from the chef that it was the sauce that had caused it to overcook. This is meant to be a place that specialises in steak cooking. If it’s true that the sauce can do that, then warn us on the menu or when the steak is delivered. Just another evening when there were niggles and delays which should not have happened. I fear we will not return unless we hear that things have drastically changed.

We had a lovely afternoon, the majority of my group enjoyed their food but the wagu steaks were very disappointing. All 5 steaks were very fatty and chewy which was a real shame. Happy with the service we received thank you, staff were helpful and polite.

Food drink and service were amazing. But restaurant itself was extremely loud. Myself and my husband couldn't hear each other speak. Whilst this was not the restaurants fault-a particularly loud large party was to blame, no attempt was made to ask them to be quiet despite the staff struggling to be heard over the noise. Consequently our dining experience was marred. Will return again however, hopefully when quieter.

Fabulous! Bottomless brunch, food was beautiful, service was great and the drinks kept coming - what’s not to like. Will certainly be back. A lovely restaurant with a great outside area, with lovely views.

We just LOVE this place!... Love the staff and love the food. The staff are super. They're very friendly and helpful. The food is sensational... Leave room for dessert! Oh, and the location and the restaurant itself are great, too. Am I one happy gal? Yep, I'm sooo so very happy to have found this place.

Fabulous food and service by Kirsty was excellent. Though comments about the noise levels were true very very noisy and luckily we were sat in a smaller area near bar and some people asked to be moved there from main room. One young waiter bought our drinks over and spilt some coke on the table but didn’t come back and clear it up but the very attentive Kirsty sorted it out.

Table booked for 7pm for my sons birthday, left 2.5hrs later after 2 courses. Clearly a kitchen issue as food just wasn’t coming out. No communication and not managing expectations. This has been similar for the last few visits so won’t be coming back now. Not looking for compensation as we did get a discount after complaining. Just sad as it’s my sons favourite restaurant. Poor leadership front of house.

Extremely hot restaurant. Very slow food and drink service. Steaks under cooked and stringy. Pork chop dry as bone. So disappointed as it was my birthday celebration meal.

I loved the trooper and I think it’s a fantastic restaurant with a lovely vibe. Staff were attentive and friendly and our booking was handled quickly and we were seated bang on 5pm! The only downside to the evening was that although I’m a big party girl and love a hen do- I felt like there were so many different large parties in that the atmosphere was just a little too loud and chaotic! Will definitely be back again! X

Service was terrible waiting for menu for 40 mins in the end had to get our own. Starters came out late because the chef wasn’t happy with the standard of what he cooked the first time around so that took over an hour to come. Nice place and could of been a nice meal but all in all turned out to be a bit of a disappointing meal.

Fantastic location and great service. I only wish that I went during the day time, so I could have made use of the garden and amazing views. It’s also close to some old roman buildings, I will be returning to explore more and try more of the fantastic menu.
