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.

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.

Food was great but service was very poor! Continually had to ask for drinks. It took 20 minutes to get a glass of water, then asked for a small bottle of sparkling water and got a whole litre bottle. This was all after we were put in a cold dark corner of the pub when we expecting to eat in the restaurant. The music was extremely loud and it was difficult to have a conversation at our table.

Food and drink was amazing, as was the atmosphere. Value for money on the bottomless lunch was also amazing. However, staff were very slow to serve. For the first round of drinks, we waited 15 mins between ordering them and them arriving. We weren’t given any notice as to when our time was up to have a last round of drinks. Instead, after waiting 20 minutes with empty glasses for a server, we were told that we needed to pay up and leave the table in 5 minutes. Can’t say that I was very impressed their service!

Ordered the fillet steak but I couldn’t eat it all due to being fatty. I always order a fillet as I can’t stand fat. So I was disappointed especially as it was nearly £30. Lovely place would return but I would not order a steak.

Waited 15 minutes for drinks. We received kids starters at the same time as their main. No vegetable with the kids sunday roast was a bit of a shame. service spoke so quietly it was hard to hear them. Got wrong drink order, salad that was cancelled with Lamb order as you had no lamb still arrived, steak with wrong sides, instead of medium rare steak I have received well done. Cauliflower with cheese that we didn’t ordered also didn’t arrive. Manager apologetic and removed items from bill but I will think hard next time before coming again as the service and waiting time was shocking. Happy to wait for good food but not for overcooked steak without being as much as told there will be delay. This was celebratory dinner for my sons birthday and instead this was evening full of aggravation and mediocre food.

It seams like you have become more of a hen Prosecco bar than a good restaurant, we were sat at a table that was on a walk way and my wife’s chair was constantly knocked as people went past , I ask for a pale ale that you say you have in your menu only to be told you don’t do it, food was bland and chips were cold and at no time did anybody ask us how food was , this was meant to be an enjoyable afternoon but left us disappointed.

First and foremost the serving staff were excellent and a credit to the organisation. I ordered a medium rare longhorn steak for £30. I received a well done dry and chewy piece of meat that would have been disappointing in a weatherspoons for £6. I was offered a replacement but as my wife was already eating her very good pork belly (with mash with cubes of spinach straight from the freezer still intact within the mash) I did not want the delay To make us eat separately and ate it. It was very disappointing for both of us. We received a voucher as a Christmas gift for the trooper meaning the meal that was £77 cost me £27 which I feel was nearer the actual value of what we were served. I am utterly disappointed as the trooper has a good reputation but it felt like I arrived the night the cook was off sick and still charged for the privilege. I will not recommend the trooper nor will I return without apology and discussion with the management on this matter.

This was the first visit to the Trooper for many years, the food and preparation were excellent and our party thoroughly enjoyed it. My only comments are: we were given a gift card purchased on Black Friday, we chose The Trooper because of the 25% discount on food. When we came to pay we were told that we could not use the voucher with another offer. There was no mention of this on the card or the attached gift card. Advanced knowledge of the restriction would have been nice to know. My only other comment is that I thought the music a little loud when there were only a few people in the dining room.
