The Lichfield Vaults, Hereford
This pub, on a pedestrianised, cobbled street between the Cathedral and the central area of the city (known as High Town), appears to be back to its best after suffering a slight downturn a few years ago. Opened out into one room, it is not the biggest hostelry, but the decked back garden increases capacity during the summer months and obviously provides a home for smokers. It seems to attract quite a varied clientele, locals and tourists alike, and can soon become busy enough to make finding a seat a challenge. Food is available at lunchtimes, while a couple of Theakston's brews were among the ale options on our last visit.
