Hampton Bishop is a village and civil parish south-east of Hereford, in Herefordshire, England. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 Census was 505. The village itself is on a wedge between the River Wye and the River Lugg, not far from where the River Frome meets the Lugg.
The local pub, the "Bunch of Carrots", is located in the centre of the village, on the B4224 road, next to a meander in the River Wye. According to David Rothwell's The Dictionary of Pub Names, the name is derived from a curiously shaped rock formation on the river, visible when the water level is low.
