Situated on the main road into Abergavenny and a couple of minutes from the train station, Plas Derwen is easy to find, even my temperamental sat nav managed it without a hitch! There is plenty of parking here, unlike some of the other nearby establishments. We arrived early with the intention of leaving the car and walking the 10 minute... More

Another fantastic weekend with Kate and staff. Food excellent. Rooms too. Staff friendly and cannot do enough for you. Have Already booked for 2015. They coped very well with ten noisy family menbers and we can thoroughly recommend their extensive alcoholic range!!!!!! X

Whilst travelling home from Holidays, decided to stop at The Plas Derwen for a late lunch (3pm) the Staff were very friendly and we were shown to our table and served with our drinks in quick time. Our order was taken and we did not have to wait very long to be served a very delicous meal. I had sausage... More

Staying in Abergavenny we were looking for somewhere for a quiet relaxing evening meal. The Plas Derwen was ideal. We received a warm welcome and taken to a table in the dining area. The waitress was very attentive. Asked about gluten free options on the menu she took a copy through to the chef and came back with all the... More

Stayed here while visiting relatives, easy to find. Room was very large and comfortable, plenty of storage space. Menu was varied and reasonably priced as was the wine list. Breakfast was very filling and tasty. The out side of the hotel building could do with a make-over, paint was peeling off a lot of the woodwork, but the inside was... More

We recently stayed at Plas Derwen for a small family trip away. They were extremely welcoming when we arrived, even though we arrived extremely late. The rooms were lovely and very very spacious, lots of room for us and a travel cot and space to play with our toddler on the floor. The breakfast was absolutely lovely and we also... More

Suited our requirements perfectly. We stayed here en route to the Hay Festival, with friends. Lots of room in the car park, and we had a large room with a sofa that was comfy and quiet. The restaurant was fine and service friendly and efficient. The wifi was free and efficient.

We recently had our wedding reception and evening celebration here. We also stayed the night, as did several of our family. Kate, Adam and their team helped to make it a special day for us. We were impressed from the start by the warm welcome we received and the warm and cosy atmosphere of the hotel. We had a basic... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Plas Derwen is a fantastic pub restaurant which offers exceptional food at ordinary prices. Located within easy reach of the A40 and A465 (Heads of the Valleys Road), it was redeveloped to a high standard in April 2007. All our food is cooked to order, using produce from local suppliers, listed on the back of our weekly changing menus, enabling you to have a different dish with every visit. There is also a Specials board and a Fish Specials board for even more variety. This is a warm, welcoming venue with pastel colours and a large see through feature fireplace. The building dates back 600 years and the refurbishment has been sympathetically undertaken to reflect old meeting new. With contemporary furnishing, the traditional slant has been retained with many nooks and crannies around the pub. The Garden Room, Lounge Bar and double Conservatory are separate rooms offering different experiences. Some areas have leather sofas and leather tub chairs. ... more   less
