Went to venue 59 on friday evening was curious about one of the specials, lamb roly poly? After being told by the waiter what it was I then ordered it and was amazed by both presentation and flavours. I was told by the young waiter that the old head chef had returned so we will be definately coming back again... More

Stayed one night - the room was quite basic but had everything needed and it was very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful, dinner was very good and served rapidly at my request. Breakfast was great too. Some reviews seem to criticise pub noises- it's a pub, you'd expect that surely? I'd be happy to visit again.

Very clean accommodation, and facilities were very good. Parking is available close by. Very accommodating staff and hotel bar and restaurant is excellent. We came across this hotel and walked in off the street. We had the best time in the bar with locals who welcomed us.

Stayed here for one night with a few friends after going for a walk. Room was spotless. Bathroom lovely (not that I care too much but my wife always checks reviews to make sure the bathroom is clean). We ate in the bar because we wanted to watch some rugby but there is a restaurant attached to the King's Head... More

Four of us booked in on a walking weekend - first impressions coming through the pub to check in were disappointing. However the rooms were clean warm and comfortable, and way better than our first impressions led us to expect. I would happily go back there!

Booked in here by work, arrived 10pm on Friday, to find karaoke and disco at full volume in bar. Had to close windows to block noise from street, bed was damp, whilst the mattress was thin and uncomfortable. Breakfast was ready for us at 07.45, which was a plus, and I'm sure it would have been very good, had we... More

Lovely room nice touch having a tea pot in the room rather than just tea bags and cups. Room clean and warm. Hotel is on the high street sadly no parking, but car park nearby.We were lucky to park on the street right outside because we stayed on a Saturday. Breakfast choice is good and the full Welsh was filling... More

Spacious, pleasantly furnished & decorated room at front of building with 2 windows onto delightful main street of Abergavenny. Not quite enough attention paid to keeping room sufficiently comfortable: missing light bulb in desk/dressing table lamp & generally diabolical lighting, no proper over-bath shower - just an old-fashioned hand held unit & a very thin, uncomfortable mattress on the bed...
