Popped in today when we just happened to be passing by. Despite it being Easter Sunday, with no reservation, and looking more like we were ready for the beach, we were seated straight away and dealt with by some of the most polite young women you could ever wish to meet. Drinks were dealt with promptly (and a lot cheaper... More

I was one of a party of 14 that had afternoon tea here last week. We had a good selection of sandwiches, home made cakes and scones with cream and jam, plus the usual tea and coffee. The staff were very attentive and obliging. The surroundings are very pleasant and the afternoon tea reasonably priced with more than enough food... More

An excellent choice to go for a meal whilst in Abergavenny or even just for a Coffee and cake. I visit here quite often whilst working in Abergavenny and it has a real sense of ambience with a huge gorgeous fireplace that seperates two rooms with large comfy sofas in the Bar area. I have tried the chicken and avocado... More

I have been there with my girlfriend a few month ago. I decided to go for the burger and she had the salmon. The burger was ok but you can have almost the same in every other pub for half of the price. The salmon was well cooked but a bit under flavoured.

Great find for dinner one night whilst we were in Wales. Group of six, including one vegan and they easily accommodated us. Food was lovely, offering 'Welsh' options as well as more well known things. Quality and size of portions good and well priced. Also an extensive drinks selection. We sat by a pretty gas fire and I thoroughly enjoyed... More

I always like to try local food and when our waitress suggested Lamb Cawl (Pronounced Cowal) from the specials board I gave it a try. This turned out to be Lamb Casserole, served in a bowl, and very tasty too. We stayed in two pub / restaurants in South Wales and I have to say the standard of fare served... More
