On our way back from Brecon to London we particularly searched for a pub with a good Sunday Roast. After reading many average to terrible reviews about the pubs nearby we've decided to try our luck at the Bell. The atmosphere was kind of miserable to say the least. The leek pie I tried had no pastry in it!! It... More

We arrived at the pub just before mid-day, but hadn't planned on a Sunday lunch. However a warm welcome and a lovely log fire in the bar prompted the decision to enquire about lunch. Even though the dining room was fully booked, a table was laid for us in the bar and we had a delicious lunch of roast beef... More

Really friendly pub, booked that morning for Sunday lunch at 12.15 and we were the first one's there but it was filling up later. Great location for lots of lovely walks. Sunday roasts were very nice with very generous portions of freshly cooked food. The beef was very tender and gluten free gravy provided on request for the boss. Beer... More

The Sunday dinners here are great, as are the desserts! Generous portions and very reasonably priced. The pub has a lovely atmosphere - we ate at about 4, so it was nice and quiet at that time. The staff were friendly and welcoming and there's also a nice garden area at the back. Will definitely be visiting again.

Family celebration outing - our party included small child so it was good to find that we could make a nice early booking for our evening meal. We received excellent personal service and had good home cooked fresh food that we all enjoyed. Good ales too.

We made a spur of the moment decision to eat here rather than our usual haunt, and were not disappointed. The food was 'pub fare' but well above average...plentiful and tasty. The service was prompt and the waiter extremely welcoming. We learned that The Bell is about to introduce an new menu ( in fact it will have done so... More

We ate at the Bell tonight. The restaurant was full before we arrived 20:30, with early diners. My wife had a great soup of mixed Mediterranean vegetables and my Leek and potato was equally good. Her chicken curry was well presented and excellent. My lamb chops were alright and the vegetables abundant. Please give these people a try. My suggestions... More

Ate in here after visiting the Abergavenny food festival and it was a nice pub that does decent beer and the food, whilst not groundbreaking was good quality and represented good value. Nice, friendly service too, especially from the male waiter who chatted with us and made a fuss of our slightly noisy daughter! Lovely beer garden too, which was... More

Came to the Bell having gone for a drive on sunday afternoon. We'd heard some good things about the sunday roast and decided to give it a go. I can safely say we were not disappointed. I had the roast pork and my boyfriend had the roast beef. Despite there being a bit of a wait on the food, it... More
