I have noticed an improvement in the quality of meals eaten out this summer a particular favourite was the rib eye steak at the Saracens head pub in Symonds Yat East after my walk down the River Wye from the bus stop at joys green.

Another 2 meals were in Redbrook after a walk from Monmouth down the Wye and another when I left Redbrook heading downstream. I enjoyed a nice homemade chilli at The Boat in and a monster mixed grill at The Bell. There are many pet-friendly eateries in the locality also.
