Let someone else do the cooking during your stay at Fairview Holiday Park and sample some of the fantastic pubs and restaurants nearby. There are a wide range of places to choose from, all within easy reach of the park.
Here we list some of our personal favourites – all tested by the Fairview team. We share our pick of the best places to eat in Herefordshire along with some of the best places to enjoy a good pint!
The Fishermans Arms is a traditional country pub situated on the Docklow Pools Estate. The welcoming team serve a wide range of food throughout the day, including hearty cooked breakfasts, tasty lunches and classic pub grub. Over the years the chefs have earned a fantastic reputation for their delicious Sunday carvery, which is a hit with locals and visitors alike. The meat comes from local butchers and seasonal veg is used whenever possible.
After your food we highly recommend enjoying the on-site woodland walk. It covers 40 acres of Herefordshire Countryside and perfect for walking off your dessert! In the spring the woodland is carpeted with wildflowers. In the autumn it looks stunning as the leaves turn orange and brown. Access to the walk is free to patrons of the Fishermans Arms.
The Kings Head has recently reopened under new management and the friendly team are already receiving rave reviews. The family run pub has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and the menu boasts a wide selection of classic dishes and local ales.
If you’re visiting on a warm and sunny day, we highly recommend checking out the garden to the rear. The fantastic position affords visitors stunning views over the countryside and there are some quirky wooden dining pods to try out.
The Kings Head can be accessed via a scenic walk from Fairview Holiday Park. Please note the walk is across fields and can be quite steep in places.
The Stockton Cross is one of our favourite pubs in the area and just a short drive from our park. The menu is only small, but it changes regularly to make use of seasonal ingredients, including game. The talented chefs are always experimenting with new dishes and strive for perfection in everything they do. The focus is on quality and the meals on offer really are very special.
The interior is warm and inviting with a rustic country charm. The staff are friendly and attentive and will look after you during your meal.

The Hickory Stick is part of the Grove golf and bowl complex and ideally positioned to enjoy a bite to eat after your game. The restaurant is set within a converted barn and has been decorated in a traditional style, which retains much of the original charm.
