The River Frome is a river in Herefordshire, England. It flows through Bromyard, and Bishops Frome. At Covender its tributary, the River Loddon, joins it. It then flows west, past Yarkhill, Prior's Frome, before its confluence with the River Lugg at Hampton Bishop.

The river also gives its name to several hamlets on the higher ground to the east Halmond's Frome, Fromes Hill and Castle Frome.

The river contains a few ruined locks and water mills.

In 2007, like many other rivers in England, the Frome burst its banks and flooded Broad Bridge and the Petty Bridge areas.

The same happened in April and July 2012, but on a much smaller scale.
