AROUND THE MOON & I
Herefordshire is renowned for its stunning rural charm, quaint historical villages, delicious food, produce and of course, cider making! Martha and Reuben have spent the last six years eating and drinking their way around the county - this is their Epicurean A-list, the creme de la creme of what they feel are Hereford's best and most unique food and drink experiences.
They have also thrown in some suggestions of fun things to see and do during your visit.
