Review on Ye Olde Salutation Inn
This beautifully preserved 500-year-old inn combines a former cider house and an adjoining cottage and it's Herefordshire through and through. Parts of the classic half-timbered frontage remain and the interior still breathes history with its sloping floors, tiny doorways, heavy beams and inglenook fireplaces.
It's been said that the Salutation 'threatens to give the gastropub movement a good name,' and visitors can sample excellent food in the atmospheric lounge bar. The blackboard menu advertises dishes old and new, from French onion soup, braised lamb shank and game casserole to herb-crusted fillet of salmon with spinach and cherry tomato butter sauce.
More formal meals are served in the Oak Room restaurant, where tables are at a premium. Begin with roast breast of wood pigeon or pan-seared Cornish scallops, ahead of oven-baked rack of venison, roast loin of monkfish or sirloin of Hereford beef with saffron mash and wild mushroom sauce. To conclude, try crunchy Seville bread-and-butter pudding with Weobley clotted cream or pineapple tarte Tatin with honey and steam ginger ice cream.
