Attended a course there today. This is a superb venue, simple but comfortable. The catering was excellent and extremely accommodating in view of my fairly extreme food allergy. The course was top quality as well.

A very beautiful place to visit, it's a bit of a tardis, it's huge and beautiful inside. Took my wife, daughter and the mother in law and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Free to enter both, but a little bit disappointing, I have been church's with a lot more history than this one. Very little gronds to explore. Cafe in the barn is good for a coffee and cake.

I had a visit when everything was disappointing but on another visit it was all good. The service could be better, ok as a cafe but won't rush back. Some items over priced.

Having spent a few hours looking for somewhere to have a spot of lunch on a day trip to Abergavenny, came across the Tithe Barn cafe quite by chance. And what a delightful spot. Usual fare (jacket potatoes, paninis and so on) but great for veggies and good value for money. Only downer would be more outside tables needed but... More

This reconstructed barn was an excellent place to gain an insight to the history of Abergavenny. The large modern tapestry created by local women depicted scenes of the town and it's history through the centuries; this was accompanied by a talk from a very knowledgable staff member . Several interactive displays were used to illustrate the history of the Tithe... More

It's just been refurbished to include the tourist office, a cafe, then upstairs a new interactive museum about the history of the area (has some very clever interactive displays for kids) and the town tapestry on display.

The upstairs of the barn has the tapestry which is the main attraction, there is also a interactive exhibition of welsh history and religion which is very interesting. Also downstairs the information centre and cafe.

Stopped off in Abergavenny for morning coffee on our way to the Brecon Beacons. We were towing a caravan so used the spacious car park near the bus station. We walked out of the top of the car park and thought that we were in France - a beautiful building with outside seating in a square of clipped lime trees.... More
