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.

My two friends and I had a lovely time and a lovely meal. We are all pensioners and our appetites are not what they were so we found the portions rather large. A lunch time two courses for a cheaper price might be an idea.

Myself and my partner visited here for the first time a few weeks ago - we loved it so we returned back with relatives last weekend. However, our experience was so different. We all ordered the Sunday lunch (which we all enjoyed) it states on the menu that you will get unlimited vegetables and roast potatoes - but we had to ask for veg in the first place as it came without and then asked twice for roast potatoes and gravy, the roasts arrived but the gravy never arrived. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the lunch so much we thought why not treat ourselves to desserts - we should’ve saved our money. Not only did the chocolate brownie not taste good - it was not at all how it is described on the menu. It was literally a pot of cream (which I do not like) with three tiny pieces of brownie chunks at the bottom of a jar and a spoon of ice cream on the side. Nowhere on the menu does it say the brownie comes with cream - let alone that this is basically all you’re getting. When we told the waitress she said you get this complaint a lot and jokingly asked if she could pretend ‘everything was ok with our meals.’ This is such a shame as we thought we would be coming back here many times after our first visit, but after this experience we can’t see ourselves returning and would encourage customers to give the desserts a miss. You’d think for £6.50 per dessert you would get more than a jar of squirty cream and would be offered an alternative when you say you’re not happy. Such a shame customer service is not how it used to be.

We had a super time when visiting for my Moms 75th Birthday. Staff were amazing, friendly and attentive but also, we did not feel rushed. The service could not be faulted. Lovely place, it was a bit loud for us but it was 'bottomless prosecco' time so it couldn't be helped. Overall a great experience which we shall do again soon hopefully

Never had a bad experience. Staff are friendly and professional. Nice modern decor. Good choice of food and drink. Would advise booking after 7 p.m. during the weekend or you'll be joining the bottomless diners who can get a little bit loud but it's all in good fun.

Bottomless prosecco made things very noisy we literally struggled to have a conversation due to the noise levels. The food was fab.

Far far far too loud. Could not hear people on the same table, needed ear defenders. Food was as always lovely, service from the staff was good, however will never return at that time of night again (6pm) normally dine at lunch time.

I hadn’t been here for years, probably 20+ and so was really surprised about the changes and the extension. The staff were very welcoming and warm. Kirsty was fantastic, very helpful and friendly and made sure our glass was never empty so the offer of a bottomless lunch really means that. Can’t wait to return. Very good value and the food was lovely.

The bar service was abysmal,rude & surly, I think the cross over from the all you can drink afternoons and evening dining are a disaster, a real shame as the food was great & waiting staff were good, I felt as though we were in a school canteen surrounded by a load of drunk women who had sunk too much fizz!! Great location but there’s so much local choice without fizz afternoons !

The noise level was unbearable, we couldn’t talk and hear others on our table of 4. We couldn’t hear the waiting staff. Others around actually left without ordering because of the noise. The tables were very sticky to the touch. We had actually booked a large party for another date but we will now be cancelling- unfortunate because our steaks were lovely.

This was our 4th / 5th visit since your ownership. First few were ok the last visit was very disappointing for the ranking of venue you portray. We are frequent diners and like good food. Sunday table was 25 mins late. Table was in our opinion in the overspill of the main restaurant or even in the bar the ambience was lost from the start. The service was worse than slow, the time between courses was frustrating, we don’t expect fast food service but we do expect normality. I was advised you had run out of Longhorne ribeye ok not a big issue I chose to have the alternative rib eye.. medium it came out dry as a bone bland looking and how thin is it? Clearly spent time under the lamp ordered beef chips got skinny fries had to send the steak back it was a joke can’t believe any chef worth their salt would even have put it on a plate. So of course my other guest had tucked into their meals almost finished before I got mine. Meanwhile the marrow gravy and squid I paid extra for went cold. Needles to say we did not pursue dessert or coffee and at just short of £50 / head we were not impressed. Which is sad because all previous visits to trooper and wine house have been ok
