The Treacle Mine Re-opens!

As you can see from this drive-by photo, rumours of the demise of The Treacle Mine have been greatly exaggerated.
We will be reviewing the all-new Treacle Mine in the week, but if anyone else goes there then let us know what you think, and why not fill in an assessment form yourself, or even email us some photos (our address is: email@hmpubguide.com).

More Hereford Re-Reviews Added

Last week saw the HM Pub Guide Team re-review 5 Hereford pubs, just click on the pub names below to read the all-new reviews:
  • The Litten Tree (pictured below)- seeing as this was voted the "2009 Pub of the Year" it seemed only fair to re-evaluate the establishment. What we found was a nice, bright, welcoming pub that's great for watching sporting events in, it also serves red Guinness- which different!
  • The Barrels (pictured below)- what can we say about this place- opinion is definitely divided, you either love it or hate it. However, it must be said that there is a wide variety of good beers available.
  • The Victory (pictured below)- this place never changes, it still looks like a boat- see picture below.
  • The Volunteer (pictured below)- a nice, little pub in the back streets of Hereford. The toilets are outside though, and it was -4 degrees C on this visit, grrrr!
  • Zane Wine Bar and Bistro (pictured below)- this was formerly called Charlotte's, not a lot has changed since then, it's primarily geared towards dining but is very welcoming.
  • We have also had a review of The Cock of Tupsley sent in anonymously. They had nothing bad to say about the place and describe their visit as: "In short a very impressive night out and would not hesitate to use it again on a regular basis..."

Treacle Mine Closes!

The credit crunch has claimed another Hereford pub. After a prolonged spell of limited opening hours The Treacle Mine has finally closed it's doors. We only hope that sometime in the future, as the economy recovers, this friendly, welcoming pub re-opens. We have heard rumours that several other drinking establishments are facing similar difficulties; so if anyone has any information let us know and we'll post it here.
Last week saw the HM Pub Guide Team, re-assess some of the pubs in town, so check back soon to read these new reviews; also included will be all the reader reviews sent in.

The Grafton - Reader Review

Chris French has sent in a very favourable reader review of The Grafton. Chris describes the food as being excellent and says its well worth the short trip out of town along the Ross Road. Check out the full review here.

Myself and Ms. W visited the Grafton just last week and also had a very nice meal. Its also worth noting that there is a promotion on at the moment giving a £5 discount on a meal for two, a £10 discount on a meal for four or two free glasses of wine. Vouchers were available on the bar and are valid up to the end of February.
