The Pub on the common

Looking forward to your visit

The Live & Let Live on Bringsty Common

An experience to remember

We are now in tier 2 and as such can only continue to operate as a restaurant. This means that Boxing day the drinks only opening hours will no longer be possible and we will be shut for that day with re-opening at 12 noon on the 27th for bookings or walk-ins for substantial meals with members of your own household only. From Monday 28th we will be closing our doors until further notice. We thank you for your understanding

We will still be operating as a table service only venue with the rule of six applying outdoors but please be aware that we only have a marquee to sit under outside with no heating facilities (wear some warm clothing).


The Pub

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. We are a country pub and restaurant in every sense of the word, the pub cannot be seen from any main road and is set deep on to Bringsty common. We serve a variety of local real ales and ciders and it is our intention to serve good wholesome food using local produce wherever possible.

We believe this to be a unique pub and restaurant in a setting that is unsurpassed in this current day and age.

The Setting

With the views across Bringsty Common and the Malvern Hills in the distance, the ‘Live’ offers a high standard of quality food with a menu to suit the seasons. There is an extensive garden area to enjoy an outside dining experience, or to relax and be one with nature in the Summer sun with that long cool drink. Within the pub a beautiful large open fire roars away in the lounge and a log burner in the bar area keeps you warm in the cooler months of the year. A visit to our lovely pub can give a different ambience at various times of the year, so come and see for yourself why our customers return time after time.

Dogs are welcome

We 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.

A warm welcome awaits
