The Temple Bar Inn

Accommodation, Guest House / B&Bs in Herefordshire


The Temple Bar Inn


The Temple Bar Inn was first licensed in the 1850s, and has been used over the years as a court house, corn exchange, and stable. Previous innkeepers claim to have seen ghosts of a boy and a dog as well as other apparitions in the oldest parts of the building, and it is possible that the land on which it is built has links with the Knights Templars.

It is nestled in the heart of the Herefordshire village of Ewyas Harold, a stone's throw from the Welsh Borders and the beautiful Black Mountains, and on the ramblers Herefordshire Trail. Over the last two years it has been sympathetically and extensively refurbished, reopening as a free house and restaurant, providing the perfect sojourn for locals and visitors alike.

The three comfortable and stylish ensuite bedrooms are situated on the first floor above the bar, and offer a comfortable welcome to guests who wish to stay overnight or for a few days. The rooms are all doubles, one of which has space for an extra single bed if required.

Each room has a colour TV, tea and coffee making facilities, and free wi-fi. Prices are per room and include a full English breakfast. Guests wishing to eat in the restaurant can book a table from 7pm - 9pm Wednesday - Saturday, or 12 noon - 2.30pm on Sunday. (Evening meals are not served in the bar or restaurant on Sundays, Mondays or Tuesdays.)


Ewyas Harold is one of those villages that is once seen never forgotten. It's reminiscent of an England gone by and there is so much to do in the area, whether it's a visit to Sir Roy Strong's famous 'Laskett Gardens' Kentchurch Court & Gardens or even the very popular Llama Trekking whatever you chose you'll be spoilt for choice in this corner of picturesque Herefordshire.

We chose this accommodation not only because the rooms are of a very high standard, but also because of the amazing restaurant that is on offer within the same premises. I stayed here at the beginning of winter when the nights were really starting to draw in. It was quite cold and I couldn't wait to get to my next location, that next location of course was the Temple Bar Inn.

I was met with a very warm welcome and after being shown up to my cosy and well appointed room, I got settled in and went for a brisk walk around the village which obviously due to its size didn't take me too long but of course that just adds to the charm of this place.

I went down for a meal in the restaurant and although the restaurant wasn't hugely busy, the service, food and ambience really did impress me. I do feel that with a restaurant it has to be about a lot more than just the food and the Temple Bar Inn is one of those venues that has charm, oozing out of every beam and fitting in the place. I found the menu to be cleverly put together and very affordable indeed. I'm sure I will be returning here again, in fact I'm absolutely certain of it!
