Good hotel which will take dogs which is a bonus and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The steak was as good as any I have had and very reasonable. Not good if you like sweets though! Sill good value for money.

Had a large family room which was much bigger than we had expected. The breakfast was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. Parking near the pub is a bit of an issue but after a little hassle we found somewhere. a great choice of accomodation if you want to explore the local area.

We were in Abergavenny in July 2014, for the wedding of our friends Son, which was being held at another establishment, (The Angel Hotel) so we had booked into the Farmers Arms as it is near to the wedding venue. The room was very well presented, clean and well furnished, the staff were friendly and helpfull. This pub / Inn... More

Had a good big room at this pub, the big twin room. It is very good value for those looking for a budget b&b. The downside to the room was the noisy unit outside and no wifi in the room. Bring your own shampoo too, I ended up having to buy some in the morning.

Upon arriving at our room I was truly shocked by how nice it looked. Very well presented. The food was also great, although breakfast was cooked a little more than I really like.

We visited the Farmers Arms looking for a nice evening meal and we were not disappointed. Although my first choice of fish cakes was not available, I settled for the chicken breast, whilst my parents opted for the Thai curry. The home cooked chips were fabulous! Each meal was well presented - the bar staff were very attentive and friendly.... More

We found the pub and B&B to be fine, not anything above average. Room number 4 was comfortable (for 3 adults) but there was very little room at the sink and the Farmers Arms sign outside creaked in the wind which was a bit of a pain. Breakfast cost £6 extra and was fine although there are no extras such... More

Very centrally located accommodation in Abergavenny and just a couple of minutes walk from the main street. Pub is clean and was modernised a couple of years ago. Warm welcome on arrival from Gareth who is an excellent front of house. Took our bags upstairs and showed us into the small twin room which we had booked for one night.... More

Stayed in a massive room, easily fitting us and our three kids. Staff were very friendly, and made our visit a real pleasure. Some lovely, well kept beers complemented a great evening menu, which we tried twice to universal approval from our choosy kids. All prices were very reasonable. Breakfasts were lovely and very filling, setting us up for a... More
