The Barrels is an 18th Century coaching inn that is formed partly from the old city wall and is one of the last multi-roomed pubs in Hereford.
A down-to-earth drinking establishment, The Barrels was the brewery’s home for many years. It attracts an eclectic clientele who come for the lively, friendly atmosphere and, of course, excellent beer.
The Barrels boasts a large, partially covered, walled and flag-stoned brewery yard, providing year-round ‘alfresco’ drinking and every August Bank Holiday weekend they host a hugely popular beer festival in aid of local charities.
The pub is also home to a variety of ladies’ and men’s darts, pool and skittles teams (all of which welcome new members). Landlord Phil Pryce and his team look forward to welcoming you!
