The Herefordshire pub enters the 2022 Michelin Guide

A HEREFORDSHIRE pub has become a national guide for its quality food.

The Bull’s Head in Craswall has earned a place in the 2022 Michelin Guide, which includes only the best restaurants in the UK.

For six years the famous old pub was closed, causing much discontent among locals and fans from further afield. But in November, it reopened.

The guide said its new owners at nearby Lower House Farm had adopted it, and with its flagstone floors, slate walls and open fireplaces, it retained a homely, simple charm.


The kitchen team is led by Jake Townley of Wild by Nature, and they create the perfect marriage between the family farm in Longtown and the atmospheric pub, which has been welcoming visitors for centuries.

The seasonal cuisine is ingredient-driven and full of flavor. Meat is a big part of what they make, with lamb, pork and beef raised using regenerative methods on their farm and slaughtered in-house. There are also homemade charcuterie and a Sunday lunch, says the guide.

“Low-intervention wines sit alongside a fine selection of beers. Accommodation – in the form of lodges and cabins – is coming soon,” he says.


A pub spokesperson said: “We are absolutely delighted to hear that the Bull’s Head has been included in the Michelin Guide for 2022.

“We are extremely grateful to our wonderful team for their hard work and dedication throughout our first year of operation, to all of our wonderful producers and of course our lovely guests for choosing to support us.”
