Left Bank


Welcome to The Left Bank Village

Food & Drink // Events // the river

Set on the banks of the Wye and just a stone’s throw from the Hereford Cathedral, The Left Bank Village is a much-loved urban venue. Part of Hereford’s Indie Quarter, we are one of the city’s most popular places for drinking and eating out, socialising and events.

This site will introduce you to all of our spaces, starting with The Left Bank itself, where you’ll find the Floodgates Bar, the River Terrace and Charles’ Bar. Then check out De Koffie Pot, our rustic riverside café and courtyard. Don’t overlook the Speakeasy, our underground events venue perfect for gigs and parties. Finally, Gwynne House is our bridal accommodation (and where our central office is located too!).


The Left Bank Village specialises in weddings and is the perfect place for your river-side love stories. We also host birthday parties, corporate events and much more. 

Or just visit us for food and drink, available from our cafes and bars. We often have live music playing at the venue to keep you entertained. And we also host regular events such as classes & clubs. To find out more visit our What’s On Calendar, Classes and Clubs page and Live Music page.
