Live and Let Live

The Live and Let Live is one of the oldest buildings on Bringsty common. This 16th Century former cider house is the only thatched pub in Herefordshire. This is a unique pub and restaurant in a setting that is unsurpassed in this current day and age.

A warm welcome awaits you.

The Live and let Live is a country pub and restaurant in every sense of the word. The pub cannot be seen from any main road and is only accessible via a B.O.A.T which is a ‘Byway Open To All Traffic’ of which Herefordshire Council now maintain.

It is set deep on to Bringsty common and is a place of solitude which allows you to escape the pressures of modern life, enjoy a meal, and have a drink alongside 220 acres of Herefordshire countryside and wildlife.

In 2007 the ‘Live’ was restored using materials that were fitting of this gracious old building including putting a thatched roof back on to pay homage to the original cider house that it was in the 16th Century, what was created was a truly unique pub and restaurant in a setting that is unsurpassed in this current day and age.

With views across Bringsty Common and the Malvern Hills in the distance, the ‘Live’ offers a high standard of quality food with an ever changing menu to suit the seasons and local produce available. There is an extensive garden area to relax and be one with nature in the Summer or within the pub a beautiful large open fire roaring away keeping you warm in the Winter.

We really are dog friendly – that means dogs are welcome with you in the pub or garden at any time, the only thing we ask is that they are kept on a lead at all times. Did you know we even do bags of doggy treats at the bar, far healthier than a bag of crisps to keep them happy. During the colder months we have the underfloor heating on and although the dogs love it please be aware they could get very thirsty.
