Verzon Country House Hotel
This superb Georgian country house hotel close to Ledbury has eight en-suite rooms, all of which have amazing views of either the gardens, the Herefordshire countryside or the Malvern Hills. If you’re seeking a luxurious getaway in a relaxing rural environment, The Verzon provides all you could want.
The hotel champions local produce and believes in Herefordshire farmers, and the kitchen team take what’s on their doorstep to truly capture the flavours of the county. Head chef Callum McDonald, who has worked for Michel Roux and Nigel Howarth amongst others, lets the quality of his food do the talking and considers it a chef’s dream to have such top quality produce on his doorstep, and to be able to buy many ingredients directly from the farmer.
In addition to the a la carte menu, you can also enjoy great food in the Mulberry Bar, platters and nibbles, plus an extensive wine list, local brews and specially mixed cocktails.
The décor could be described as quirky but it really does work and guests love it. The staff are warm and friendly and will help to ensure you have a memorable experience.
