Stoke Lacy is a small village and civil parish in the English county of Herefordshire.

Stoke Lacy lies on the main A465 road that connects Hereford and Bromyard and is 10.3 miles (16.6 km) from the former and 4.3 miles (6.9 km) from the latter.


A church was established in the village in Norman times. In 1863 the architect Kempson renovated and remodelled the church of St Peter and St Paul leaving only the Norman arch with a screen and leaf frieze on the cornice. From 1938, Symonds Cider and English Wine Company was based in Stoke Lacy. This company operated as a family firm until it was taken over by Greenall & Whitley in 1984, and then Bulmers in 1989. The plant in Stoke Lacy closed in 2000. The Wye Valley Brewery is also located in the village.

Local facilities[edit]

Stoke Lacy Village Hall is located in the centre of the village on land donated by Bill Symonds following the closure of the Symonds brewery. It has a large function room, car park and lawns.
