Overview

The tiny village of Berrow Green is located on the side of Ankerdine Hill as you climb up from the River Teme towards the lovely village of Martley, smack on the border between Worcestershire and Herefordshire in glorious rolling countryside.

Rescued and revamped by Andrew Cornthwaite in early 2018, the 17th-century Admiral Rodney is the heart of the community, popular with local drinkers (there's a great summer garden), as a destination dining pub and as a comfortable place to stay. The inn makes a peaceful rural base for visiting Worcester just 6 miles away.

New life has been breathed into old inn with a contemporary country feel throughout the refurbished bar and dining areas, where you'll find local ales and ciders on tap and a modern pub menu. The icing on the cake are the six cabin-style Garden Rooms added in summer 2020.

Restaurant & bar

The kitchen team make good use of local produce on the seasonal menu which trawls the globe of inspiration and mixes pub classics with more imaginative dishes.

Locally reared meat, bacon and sausages come from the butchers just down the road in Knightwick and all fruit and vegetables are sourced from local farms. Typically tuck into Thai spiced pork terrine with Asian coleslaw, followed by Knightwick burger with smoked bacon and cheese, tagliatelle of wild mushrooms, cashew nut pesto, rocket and parmesan, or Herefordshire rump steak with pepper sauce. Puddings may include sticky toffee pudding.

Tip-top local ales come from Wye Valley Brewery just down the road in Bromyard, Hobsons Brewery in Cleobury Mortimer and the Ludlow Brewery. Heady ciders are sourced from Tenbury Wells and from Herefordshire, and there's a real local theme to the choice of spirits - the back bar groans with the gins and vodkas produced by Chase Distillery (tours & tastings), and a few Chase cocktails are also available.

Things to do

Spectacular ruins, stunning fountains, restored gardens and woodland walks at Witley Court (English Heritage) make for a great day out.

Just taken over by the National Trust, the Elgar Birthplace Museum at Lower Broadheath provides a fascinating insight into the life and music, family and friends, development and inspirations of Sir Edward Elgar.

Monkland Cheese Dairy is a working dairy producing local, artisan cheeses. They sell an excellent variety of local cheese, and have an excellent tea room! You can also take a tour of the cheesemaking or learn to make cheese on one of their Cheese Experience Days.
