Tucked away, close to the beautiful Regency bridge and the Castle, the Afon Gwy is a hidden gem. The Sunday lunches are the best in town, and a friendly welcome is guaranteed. Good ale, and a selection of beers wines and spirits make it a popular place for a relaxed drink. The garden is a real treat in the summer,... More

We visited the Afon Gwy for Sunday lunch. Food was lovely, and plenty of it. View from the conservatory room is lovely. Whether visiting for food, or just for a drink, the landlord is extremely friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend.

We recently had Sunday lunch at the Afon Gwy while on a day trip to Chepstow. Wow -- what a find! The kitchen must have been waiting for us because our food arrived ultra fast. Prices were very reasonable; portions were large; and the wait staff was helpful and courteous. For dessert, we split the warm lemon tart (optional topping:... More

Nice guest house with a view of the river. The tide rises 15 m here and the old bridge over the river made a nice view from our room. The host was very friendly and helpful and made us a lovely, though large, breakfast, telling us about the guest house and the area. We had a really nice, first stay... More

Really nice place. Good selection of beer and a welcoming landlord. Excellent views of the river, the castle, and the old bridge. I highly recommend for anyone looking for a decent drink and a friendly atmosphere.

I liked this building, with its rustic charm, old stone and woodwork. Its situation by the river is ideal for watching the tide surge in and out. My room was fine, though the shower was fairly average. Breakfast was great, with half of it being help-yourself, and half of it cooked to order. It was just a bit to pricey... More

We had a lovely time. When the weather is good there is a garden... More

We ended our weekend in Wales with a lovely lunch at the Afon Gwyn, friendly service and absolutely no complaints, and considering we were late for lunch (3ish) and the fact that there was 11 of us full stars all round. We will definitely be returning :)
