Winner – AA Friendliest B&B of the year 2018

The Temple Bar Inn is situated in the centre of the village of Ewyas Harold, on the ramblers’ Herefordshire Trail, and is an ideal sustenance stop or place to stay for walkers, cyclists, and visitors wishing to explore the Welsh Marches, Black Mountains, Offa’s Dyke, the Golden Valley, Hay-on-Wye and the River Monnow.

First licenced in the 1850s, and now sympathetically and extensively refurbished by the Jinman family owners, it is managed as a freehouse with bar, games room, restaurant, function room, outside seating area, and three ensuite B&B rooms.

With an intriguing history packed with myths and legends, over the years it has been used as a court house, corn exchange, stable, butchers, and school room, and it has been suggested that the land on which it was built has links with the Knights Templars.

The B&B rooms are situated on the first floor and are all doubles, one of which has space for an extra single bed if required.  Each room has a colour TV, tea and coffee making facilities and is designed in country chic fashion. Free WIFI. Number of Rooms: 3.

2018 AA awards – Breakfast Award, 2 Rosettes in Culinary Excellence and 4 Star Silver Award.
