The Plas Derwen was worth the walk for sure.

After an unsuccessful attempt to dine at the old pub in the square by Abergavenny post office (stopped serving food at 7.20 pm despite a chalked sign saying 6:00 till 9:30 and the bar being empty) we strolled out of town in search of something good and we found it. The Plas Derwen was worth the... read more

Stopped here by chance on a journey from South Wales to the Midlands. My mate and I needed general refreshment, and this was the first place off the A465. What a lucky find! Super food, homely surroundings, friendly staff. I'll certainly stop here again if I'm on the same journey.

Brains pub I believe. Food is OK nothing wrong with it if you want a plain simple meal at average prices. Sort of place you go to as you know what you are getting and can't think where else to eat but you don't fancy cooking at home!!

We'd previously eaten at the Plas Derwen (before we became Archie's owners) but not visited since as the website said pets not welcome. By chance we found this is not the case and booked in for a two night stay, The staff could not have been more welcoming or obliging and in spite of a very busy evening in the... More

Came here for a special occasion with my partner for a meal, staff were friendly as always, the food was different. We ordered a mix of starters and nibble , which were okay. Although presentation needed addressing. My course was Chicken Supreme with mash and vegetables, although when eating my meal came across a bone fragments in my meal. When... More

Really good country eating pub. Relaxed informal atmosphere with a wide menu. Great steaks and posh burgers, Sunday lunch is excellent too.

Plas Derwen is a convenient mid point pub and restaurant between our home and the Father-in-law in Carmarthen, We fine it very easy to get to, just off the A40 Serving my favourite beer "Rev James" and with a fine selection of meals we often meet to have a meal or exchange gifts. We had the Sunday Roast and that... More

Quite a nice meal for three adults and two kids. Inattentive but friendly staff meant it was a rather drawn out visit. Calamari starter was good, but ribeye steak wasn't very good quality. £92 seemed a bit steep for the quality considering we only drank sparkling water. I wouldn't avoid this place or rush back.
