DE KOFFIE POT, IS A DUTCH INSPIRED CAFE/BAR & BEER GARDEN
DKP at The Left Bank Village is a much-loved dog-friendly coffee house overlooking the river Wye. It is set midway between Hereford's two finest tourist attractions, namely Hereford Cathedral and the Medieval Wye Bridge. A café by day and a pub by night serving extra special food , local ciders and ales. with lots of emphasis on local, organic, vegan, and vegetarian. The perfect pit stop; take a break here for a "damn fine cup of coffee", courtesy of James' Gourmet Coffee or one of our locally blended delicate teas. Watch the swans go by from the riverside courtyard while enjoying a real ale or local cider. DKP is a cafe where you can happily work, learn, munch or socialise and listen to live music.

De Koffie Pot is part of Left Bank Village and as such all seating is available outside on all three terraces of the main building as well as the Courtyard space.

Having booked a table to catch up with friends for 7.30 was extremely disappointed to discover once we'd ordered drinks that the food had been withdrawn. Not advised as we arrived and to add insult, food was delivered to next table as we had our drinks.
So disappointed.
Only slight recompense was having the cost of drinks refunded.

Had to wait 90 minutes after ordering before we had our meal. Complained and not offered any recompense. Only after Kit, the bar manager, felt we had received poor service, were we offered a complimentary drink. He is most definitely an asset to the company.

I regularly eat and spend time with friends here. On Wednesday I waited 1hour 20mins for my food, my friend had eaten hers by the time mine came out when I spoke to the senior on they said there was nothing they could give me it was because everyone ordered on the app at the same time. Other than this the ambiance and environment was lovely

Our table overlooked the terrace with a view of the old bridge and the river. The position had a sunny aspect and the background music was pleasant and lively. Our food was of the expected good standard and plentiful.

De Koffie pot is our favourite place to visit when we stay in Hereford. The food is always excellent with our grandchildren thoroughly enjoying the pizzas!
We have visited 3 times over the last 8 weeks and have felt safe during the COVID situation , the whole experience has made us feel comfortable not only for us but the Koffie Pot are keeping their colleagues safe, whilst giving the customer exceptional service standards!
The open table app is easy to use for booking and once inside the ordering app is easy to use as well !
The whole experience makes you feel relaxed whether sitting inside or out!
We love the chicken Piri Piri strips and the sweet potato fries are delicious, all portions are generous, and made even better by the reductions in price Monday to Thursday!

Awful service, rude staff, did sort of apologise after we had eaten and tried to use excuse of being rushed off feet - not busy at all in there. Having to wait ages for cutlery, missing drinks, not being told it’s your food/drink that has been dumped on the random table for you to collect due to Covid restrictions. Avoid.

Had to concede defeat with ordering on mobile and waitress took our order - got order ok on mobile but wouldn’t accept payment. A bit noisy inside but otherwise fine. 50% offer made it excellent value!

We didn’t have anyone check that our food was okay. There wasn’t staff coming upstairs often so we had to wait so we could get a takeaway box for our leftovers.

Outside seating is well spaced and they have a fire pit. Menu is good. I've had the falafel and the soup, both excellent. The service is fast and all the staff are smiley and very helpful. Covid-ordering is via their QR app and can be a bit cumbersome since they cover all the variations and choices of sauces etc. But I appreciate that they are keeping contact as minimal as possible. There is a really good atmosphere. Currently they are running a half price deal at certain times, which makes it ridiculously reasonable.

Lovely location, helpful staff, food has gotten better generally: better variety and reasonable portions, prices made better by the 50% off mains. Cake portions have shrunk noticably, thus less stars.

Went for coffee and cake, told by a staff member cake was unavailable even though we could see it. Then after we had ordered sides (and waited 35-50 mins by the time each of them same out) the table next to us asked for cake, and we’re given it! As you can imagine we were a little frustrated considering that was the main point of our visit.

Difficult to order and pay online.
Had to ask twice for tap water.
Happily surprised to see still doing 50% offer,
My companion had the fish and chips, and would have liked
a larger piece of fish.
Didn't like the music, intrusive

Given that de koffie pot was offering 50% off mains and sides I expected it to be very busy. Staff weren't particularly friendly or welcoming. Food seemed to take a long time to arrive and the pitta bread from my order was dry. Overall a mediocre experience which is a shame as I know the venue's struggled this year.

I asked for a children’s menu as stated on the website and I was told they do not have a children’s menu and I could order her chips! Although I allow my daughter to eat chips from time to time it would be nice to have a better choice especially as it stated they had a children’s menu. I thought I may have got it wrong but I then looked at the menu which was on the serving table and it states at the bottom *please ask for a children’s menu. This was extremely frustrating as I had to feed a 5 year old! I managed to order her a jacket potato with salad. (When it arrived the salad was covered in seeds and dressing. It doesn’t state the salad is covered in seeds and dressing on the menu so I had to ask for another salad with no seeds and dressing so bear this in mind) However overall we were happy with the food and the atmosphere.

Never been before but, since they were offering half price on meals Mon - Thursday we though we'd give it a try. We will be back - the food was good, the staff were friendly and Covid directions were being followed. It was a bit chilly so we will get an inside table next time.
