Lovely, friendly, happy staff - good reason to come alone. Great sense of humour and got feeling they would try to accommodate any request. Stayed for evening meal, starters were tasty though terrine served a little too cold (crab delicious). Fish yummy, partner was a tad disappointed in his lamb shank, a little dry and I personally thought the gravy... More

Lovely meal - as always, great atmosphere in the bar. Friendly and accommodating staff despite being a busy Saturday night.Top cuisine at very good prices. Definitely recommended. the car park is a nightmare, don't try it, use the car park just a few minutes walk away.

we ate here and yes other than the lamb being a bit over done for me it was very nice Couldn't want for more. Did think the Angel in Abergavenny has the edge over this place, But this place is very good. Staff on that night very helpful and quick 08/01/2015 and couldn't do enough for you Would go again...

called in on the off chance to have a coffee although it was very busy with meals we were made welcome and great coffee. The meals we saw looked great and will go back to eat there in the future.

We went for dinner on New Year's Day - nice village pub, cosy fires. Needed a bit of music though. Food was lovely and delivered quite quickly.

Once again we had a fantastic meal. The menu choice is good and suits all ages. On this occasion we were a large group of parents and teenagers and the range of food suited everyone and was very much enjoyed by us all.

We arrived at around 8pm on New Year's Eve and had made no booking. We were quickly found a table in the Bar area and the food was just delicious. We had three courses and only stopped at getting cheese and coffee as we had no room left!

We visited the pub for dinner on New Years eve. The starters were all ok but nothing special. The main courses were good including the lamb shank, steaks and sea bass and lobster risotto. The desserts were nice. It was a shame there was no table service but I understand another area of the pub offered table service. They have... More
