The office of Mayor of Hereford, a city in the west midlands of England, is now a primarily ceremonial, non-political post. As the city's First Citizen, the mayor serves as the civic representative at a wide range of functions and events throughout the local authority area.

The office of Mayor of Hereford was created by Letters Patent on 15 November 1383 by King Richard II to replace the previous office of Chief Bailiff. The Mayor's full title is "The Right Worshipful the Mayor of Hereford". He or she is traditionally addressed as "Your worship", as a court formality.

The following have been notable mayors of Hereford:
