Good, well kept local Wye valley beer. Food very average. I had steak. My wife had plaice. Neither were very fresh.

All good is really tasty! God size portions as well- none of this less is more ("it's an art form") malarky! Only about 10 ten tables so never overly busy or super quiet. Fab place for an evening bar snack or a Sunday roast!

A lovely Pub set in the countryside of Bettws Newydd. An old traditional pub with a warm welcome and very nice food awaits you. I would highly recommend this pub and would advise to book before going, otherwise you may not get a table.

Really charming little pub - wish we could have stayed longer. Excellent food, lovely atmosphere, service could have been a little more attentive. Well worth a visit!! Note they only accept cash or cheque.

A lovely pub/restaurant with an extensive menu. Food delicious and a good local atmosphere. Recommended but don't just turn up on the off chance. They are not open every day.When we booked, they were not open on Mondays or Tuesdays.

Lunch of fillet steak pie...ish. Floating pastry lid, but it did have a bottom. The flavour was delicious & the accompanying chips were amazing! It would have been nice to have had just one vegetable. The blip was they didn't take credit/debit cards. I'm not sure if it was just this particular day as the lights were going on &... More

Had dinner here with my wife. Menu provides good choices although I didn't spot any lamb or pork. Plenty of fish dishes however. Mushroom soup was good and not too creamy. Thai fish cakes were thin but tasty and spicy. The cod was well presented and very good. The duck had probably been cooked too quickly as it was a... More
