Late Lunch

We visited The Trading Post for the first time on Saturday. It was great to be served at the table by a pleasant waiter. Our food arrived quickly, the soup was hot & tasty. The sandwiches were fresh with delicious fillings, the ham was obviously home cooked & the egg mayo was plentiful. We will... read more

As the name suggests the Trading Post is a little different from the usual restaurant/café. A very nice place to eat or just visit for a coffee. Outside tables for those who wish for fresh air with their meals. The canopy can shade the outside tables when required. Near the Abergavenny Post Office it is also a very child friendly... More

Good service inside and on the outside tables. Children friendly with a play area and even toys for the children. A varied range of meals on the menu including dishes for vegetarians. Daily specials are displayed and orders can be altered to individual customers taste. Many an enjoyable visit to this popular eating place in Abergavenny.

What a fantastic coffee shop, sat at a table and so refreshing not to order at the counter with a table number. It was an extremely busy Saturday lunch time, waitress came straight over and took our order. Tasty pannini with a HOT cup of coffee. Great stuff! We read the papers provided, and my partner decided to order a... More

This place has been around for a while, owner very good and was nice to return. Always used to do different varieties of coffee inc Jamaican blue mountain along with other beauties, I didn't see any there this time? Don't stop what you have always done - an independent coffee house that stands out from the rest with fab food... More

This is a good place for breakfast and offers a range of snacks for lunch. Tea comes in a teapot which is nice. It has a nice atmosphere.

Went into the trading post for a breakfast this morning but was left disappointed with the quality. As soon as I arrived I was dealt with immediately and seated accordingly. I ordered the full cooked breakfast and filter coffee for £7. It took all of 5 minutes to reach my table which was super quick. The disappointing point was that... More

Whilst at the food festival we called into The Trading Post for coffee and cake. I ordered an Americano and requested hot milk - a jug of chilled milk arrived! I ordered a scone with cream. Scone although large was dry and the cream tasted off. I left it to one side and asked for the bill. The waitress eyed... More

Found this place using our new SatNav, with parking nearby. Although it was a Saturday lunchtime we received a warm welcome. There was a wide variety of food including breakfast, soups, salads and specials. The food was delicious.

Not impressed at all. My food was very average and my wife's was burnt. In a place with so many good cafes and restaurants we won't be going back here.
