Re-reviews Added

Last Monday the HMPG team had a very enjoyable evening re-reviewing some pubs in town. The point of this exercise was to give you, our avid readers, more up-to-date reviews of the public houses; and a handy coincidence was that we got quite drunk! So every one's a winner!
To see the reviews just click on the pub names below:
The Left Bank (top picture), The Stagecoach, The Grapes and The Black Lion (bottom two pictures).
We have also received a glowing review of The Barrels by Wallace Reading, click here to read the review in it's entirety.
Keep the reviews coming in, and share with the world your experiences of the pubs you have visited. Keep checking back because soon we will be compiling a shortlist for the '2008 Hereford Pub of the Year'. As ever this will be a poll- and we invite each and every reader to vote for their favourite pub!

I don't know if you're aware but the Black Lion pub sign was probably taken from the badge of Queen Phillipa of Hainault, wife of Edward III, much loved for her compassion and gentleness. They had fourteen children, including Edward The Black Prince, John of Gaunt(who became the Duke of Lancaster and the richest, most powerful man in England) and Edmund of York.

Family feuding led eventually to the Wars of the Roses between the houses of York and Lancaster, a conflict that in turn influenced many pub signs.

Phillipa died of the Black Death at Windsor Castle in 1369 and is buried in Westminster Abbey.
