"Friendly stay"
We stayed one night at the Rifle Volunteer pub. It was fair value for money, the room was small, however it had everything we needed for a one night stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the bed was fairly comfortable. The breakfast was a basic continental option, however this was nice and fair value for the money you pay. The place had a nice atmosphere to it and is accessible. If we are back in Hereford again then we would stay here again. Read less

The Rifle Volunteer is set in the County of Hertfordshire in the small town of Ware. The history of this Public House and Bed & Breakfast dates from around 1841 when it was owned by a Ware maltster. By 1850 it was the named The Union Jack until at least 1864. It then became The Rifle Volunteer after the brave men and women who picked there Rifles and formed a citizen army of part timers and created a popular movement in the British Empire in 1859.

The Rifle Volunteer is a traditional local pub and is a 5 minute drive from the A10 Junction for Ware, 8 minute walk to Ware Train Station, 5 minute walk to Ware high Street, 5 minute walk to GlaxoSmithKline Factory. Nearest golf courses are Hanbury Manor and Whitehills Golf within 5-15 minute drive away, 5 minute drive to Fanhams Hall Hotel and Wedding Venue.

Ware has a population of around 18,000 people and is close to the County Town of Hertford. It is a Civil Parish of East Hertfordshire. Popular interest within Ware are:
The Maltman Statue – Erected in 1999 to celebrate the largest Maltmaking Town in England.
The Priory & Fletcher Lee – They are the remains of a fourteenth-century friary which are now the local council offices and a conference centre and wedding venue situated within seven acres of picturesque riverside gardens. Opposite the priory is the large fourteenth-century parish church of St. Mary. It is known for its elaborate font with large carved stone figures.
Ware Museum - The museum is partially housed inside an original Second World War Command Bunker used to co-ordinate local defences and respond to air-raids.
The town is also famous for its many 18th-century riverside gazebos, several of which have been restored.
The High Street has everything from shops, bars, coffee shops, cafes, restaurants, hairdressers, Boots, Tesco, Sainsbury’s. And with the River Lee flowing through the centre of Ware, it has access to lovely riverside walks and wildlife.
