Arrived at 8.25 on a Friday evening. Was "greeted" by a lady who looked surprised that we wanted to eat. She scowled at us and told us that the kitchen had just closed. This was surprising as the sign outside on the roadside stated the restaurant was open until 9pm.

My Dad had eaten here many times and always had lovely things to say. So of we went. My only annoyance before I... More

We popped in on the off chance (having been turned away elsewhere) and asked if it was possible to eat as a family and to bring our dog in with us. The staff were very helpful in finding us somewhere we could sit indoors with the dog and our children. We had a lovely meal. Nothing was too much trouble... More

Lots of Sunday lunches to choose from in the area, but where to eat on a Sunday evening? Well, the Riverside in the Llanwenarth Hotel for one! Superb setting, the window table overlooking the River Usk. Fixed price menu, good quality food -slow roast lamb, braised topside and yorkshire pudding, poached Megrim - 2 courses £16.90, 3 courses £19.90. The... More
