A pleasant visit

Stopped here for lunch with a friend who lives locally and who recommended The Crown. We weren't disappointed. The pub offers a good selection of beers and the food that we had (curry, fish and chips and salad) was pretty good. Service from the landlady was exemplary. Lovely ambience here.

We popped in for a drink as we headed up the valley. The welcome at the bar was super friendly and the cider refreshing. But as we looked around the families, friends and couples were dining in very bright, unsubtle light. It was more akin to Bernie Inn ambiance than cosy hill-side hostelry with quaint features and log fire (... More

We visited the Crown for a birthday celebration. The welcome as always was warm and the real log fire was burning away . The food was fantastic . A starter of liver ,pine nuts ,raisins and shallots was excellent as were the mushroom and truffle ravioli. The main course was rolled belly of pork with seasonal vegetables and scampi and... More

We recently visited the Crown as part of a Golden Wedding celebration. The pub was warm, full and with plenty of atmosphere , and the service was excellent. Unfortunately, as many of us are vegetarian , we made the mistake of ordering the Thai curry. The flavour was good but it resembled coconut flavoured thin kale soup. The kale was... More

Went with friends for sunday lunch and found it excellent. The food, staff and value were, in my experience, amongst the best and I am not particularly impressed easily. Service was astoundingly fast for us and the final bill was low to the extent I thought they had made a mistake (they hadn't, it's just great value). Probably need to... More

We were taken by two very good friends who live in Abergavenny to the Crown Pub for Saturday lunch. It turned out to be a simply splendid experience. A "gastro pub" without all of the ghastly atmosphere that term usually brings to mind. Hidden away down a small country road it retained the atmosphere of a pub where you would... More

We were relieved to find the Crown Inn, having not been able to get food at the nearby Bridge Inn. It was a short drive down the road and the sign outside said they would serve food as long as they were open and people wanted some. It was a very hospitable pub and we were welcome with a big...

Had a delicious evening meal with my partner and parents. Deserves a rosette. Great atmosphere and service. Menu a little different from the norm - which is very refreshing

We have previously visited The Crown and had a fantastic meal. Due to having family to stay we telephoned to make a booking. This was all confirmed. On arriving to The Crown later that day we were told that the cleaner had taken the booking and we would not be able to have a meal. There was no apology. Very... More
