The Bell at Yarpole

A distinctly different pub owned and managed by the community in the heart of the community in the stunning black and white village of Yarpole, North Herefordshire.

Food, beer and atmosphere

The Bell at Yarpole is a community owned pub in the stunning black and white village of Yarpole, located midway between the market towns of Ludlow and Leominster. Currently run by our manager, Christina, and a team of enthusiastic volunteers, the pub is open daily from 12pm, excluding Mondays when we are currently closed (apart from Bank Holidays and special events). Join us for a games and social evening on Wednesday evenings; often accompanied by live folk  music.

Ales, ciders and outstanding wines.

Local lagers, ales and ciders are available on tap. We have recently teamed up with Wye Valley Brewery as our lead brewer. We have their pale ale, Fandango, their stout, Nightjar and their lager, 1985 all available on draught. We also stock Gasping Goose; a local cider from Newton Court just south of Leominster. Guest ales are also available, different beers from our local producers The Ludlow Brewing Company and Wye Valley.

We are located in the heart of the beautiful Herefordshire countryside. A stones throne from many beautiful walks, including the gorgeous Fish Pool Valley, National Trust sites, and treasures like Ludlow Castle. 

We are happy to welcome motorhomes and camper vans on our off-road car park behind the pub. We require stopover guests to use the pub in some capacity – with a recommended minimum spend of £20 for use of our facilities. 

We are also happy to cater for breakfast if you call and book in advance.
