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.

I've used the tropper numerous times, and have always had a lovely meal. However this visit I was very disappointed, on arrival we were met by an extremely noisy bar area. A large group of people singing, shouting although the manager dealt with the situation a short time after it really wasnt ideal when wanting to have a nice meal with my partner. We were then sat down- not in the restaurant but in the bar area and felt as though we were sat there as if we had walked in of the street. The young girl that was our waitress tried her best but from having to run in between the main restaurants and the bar area we didnt feel as though we were looked after as well as we would of been in the restaurant. We usually get a relaxed, romantic and enjoyable experience at the trooper however we got the opposite. I'm afraid its really put us off coming again.

We had a lovely night on Friday evening celebrating my son’s Birthday. All six of us thoroughly enjoyed our Food (all 3 courses) 🐷 The atmosphere was vibrant and all staff were friendly. Would recommend to others without a doubt.

Not as enjoyable as previous experiences. Our table wasn't available until 20 minutes after our booking (which was for 7pm and we weren't seated until 7.20pm). I had phoned about a week before and asked for something special as we were celebrating a 65th birthday and an engagement and was offered a message on a dessert plate. That didn't materialise. It was a busy evening and staff were pleasant and as efficient as they could be given how busy the restaurant was. Food was a pretty good standard.

The food here is of a reasonable standard especially at the cost. It may just be that we are not the target audience these days. The sound level of the music makes conversation difficult and maybe one or two more experienced staff would help in turning it from waiting on tables to restaurant service.

Good meal again. Enjoyable time as always. Although the salad on the steak plate had too much dressing. First time it's not been perfect.

Another enjoyable meal at The Trooper, food was delicious and well presented. Service only given 4 Stars on this occasion - This is in no way a reflection on the Staff - they were all amazing and fully occupied all eveninng. The restuarant was full to capacity, a clear sign of how tasty the food is, but I do think the Staff would have benefitted from an extra pair of hands.

Man on bar was lovely and helpful on entry. Pizzas were awful, couldn't eat them. 2 female members of staff walked past 2 of us not eating and full plates of food, twice! One of which we later found was the manager on that night. Inedible food was removed from the bill after consultation with passive aggressive 'manager'. Shame as I haven't been to the Trooper for 6 years since poor food then. Seems like little has changed and service leaves a lot to be desired.

I came last saturday night as a table of 8. I was so disappointed with the service, I felt embarassed as I had recommended this restaurant for my friend's birthday and couldn't have complemented you enough. However, we were seated at 6 and by half 6 no one had come over to even take a drinks order. I had to find a waitress who was stood chatting at host. I then did not even get an apology for the wait just a 'i will come over now'. Then, 2 estrellas were missing and had to be chased up, 1 starter did not come out with the others,and the sauces on the steaks were all missing for the mains. The food was beautiful but again there was not as much as a sorry said. In the end we decided to go somewhere else for puddings because we had had enough. I asked for the bill and our deposit had not been taken off. When this was finally sorted we then waited another 20 minutes for a card machine. Then as we were paying the person taking our order, i presume the manager, was ridiculing some members of the party for not rounding up what they wanted to pay for example rounding £17.40 to £18. I did not think that was acceptable after the lack of service.

We booked the table for 5pm but when we got there the staff said we were booked in at 5.15 and tried to make out this was my error, however I have an email confirming we booked at 5pm. We weren’t seated until well you after half 5. I understand it is a busy restaurant but there was no apology for being late and the food took a long time to come. The food was lovely though, always very nice.

First time visit, staff, warm, friendly & inviting. The menu was very extensive, open kitchen a plus. Our Burgers were thick & juicy, and of very good quality. My dessert of Rum & Raisins cheesecake was disappointing, lacked rum which was disappointing. My partner had a Tia Maria coffee which was weak and she couldn’t taste the Tia Maria. The toilets were clean, but the latch on one of the ladies toilet cubicle was broken.

Arrived early at 3:00 for a 3:15 booking, it took a while to be seated at our table (3:30) then we waited a little while to be served. Once served drinks and food service was good until 5:00 I believe there was a changeover of staff and our desserts had been forgotten. We had to ask Where they were twice and eventually they came after a wait of over 40mins. Our food was lovely.
