About Us

We are an independent family owned business and a truly unique venue.  

Saxtys has a long history in Hereford, opening in 1977 and trading continuously ever since.  Our business has expanded into Wine sales online and in our dedicated shop. We offer a wide range of wines, spirits and drinks in our Bars and are happy to arrange specialities wines and drinks events tailored for you.

Our speciaility is parties and events!  We love a good party and we cater for various functions, dinners, weddings, and all sorts of events, big and small, both in house and externally. For more information or to make a booking, click here.

The present owners, the Symonds Family, took over in 2001 and have an even longer history in the licensed trade with a family history of cider making stretching back nearly 300 years!   Our sister business is NSA Event bars, a well respected mobile bar company well known on the events and show circuit and a familiar presence at events such as Badminton Horse Trials, Silverstone F1, Ascot and the CLA Game Fair.

As time has evolved, so Saxtys has gone through many incarnations but still holds a firm place in the heart of Hereford thanks to our many loyal customers who we welcome back time and time again.  Our independance has enabled us to buy locally, source wines and champagnes direct from the houses and shippers and enabled us to bring you the best quality products we can find at very competitive prices, carving a reputation as a solid and reliable established Herefordshire business. 

In 2010 we set up our online Wine business: www.secretbottleshop.co.uk – a high quality online Wine Ordering Service operated from the heart of Saxtys.  Customers both local and national can order from us with a fixed rate delivery anywhere in mainland UK or local customers can pick up their order from Saxtys for free. We are extremely competitive with our prices online and it's a great way to enjoy our wines at home, or perhaps to purchase a gift for someone special, we also do bulk orders and glass hire for local weddings, parties and events.   We also now have a dedicated shop at number 39 - Widemarsh Street.  For more information, take a look HERE
