“great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Had a couple of hours to spare whilst my stepdaughter went to her St Johns lesson on Thursday evening.We decided to go to the Kilpeck Inn which we had seen signposted on the road to Abergavenny.The menu was reasonably small but the food was delicious.I had the calves liver whilst my wife had the mushroom risotto.We both followed with sticky toffee pudding and clotted cream,light as a feather!
The setting was very modern for what appeared to be an old fashioned pub and very comfortable. A grown up sort of place.The manager(could have been the owner) was very attentive and the service was good and non intrusive which was welcome. The bill including pre drinks and coffee was less than £50 which,for the quality of food, was fine.We will return,hopefully with friends who appreciate good food.

“Superb value 3 cours lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

I made a special trip out on a rare day off and was not disappointed. 3 course lunch for £12.95 is very keen and tremendous value for money. The menu was interesting with plenty of options. The interior is very clean, modern, warm, and cosy. The staff are friendly and attentive, and food delivery was in very good time. I look forward to returning with company next time! The Sunday roast looks a treat but I imagine you would be well advised to book!

“a spur of the moment delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

five of us lateish friday evening; varied menu choices from burgers and fish n chips for the teenagers, both excellent hand made basics for just under a tenner, to slow roast pork belly and rack of lamb; rich sticky marrowy gravy and really top mash forgave a possible lack of crackling but then this is the middle of nowhere not Finos in charlotte st...followed by authentic rice puddings wolfed down by the teenagers and a great cheese board i couldnt finish (so was given the rest to take away in a tupperware box) and all preceded by terrific potted shrimps, decent celeriac soup and duck livers with 80s style coloured peppers; oh and before that quails eggs plus celery salt: creamy, tasty and memorable. Stick to wine by the glass and here's a varied, unpretentious menu simply served, and successfully done - for roughly the same price (they'll hate me for saying this) as pizzaexpress...

“Very Good Food in Relaxing Environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed a great lunch at the Kilpeck Inn on Thursday. The menu was interesting and the good well cooked. The goats cheese starter was especially tasty . We would love to return.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

My wife and I have paid several visits to The Kilpeck, each time in the hope that the food would live up to the surroundings, only to be presented with an average meal each time. Last night however will definitely be our last attempt.

I had the belly pork which was presented very well, but was not particularly hot. My wife ordered the 8oz sirloin cooked blue, which again was presented well although closer to medium than blue! When she took the first bite she immediately spat it out as it was obvious from the flavour and smell that the meat was off. We complained to the waitress/barmaid who apologised and offered another steak, only to return saying that they had no more. In the end she settled for cooked ham with hand cut chips!

Why didn't the chef or manager come and speak to us and offer us an explanation as to how this had happened? Why wasn't it spotted before it left the kitchen!? Instead the waitress was left to deal with our obvious dissatisfaction which was clearly unfair to her.

We are not people that normally complain, on this occasion it was entirely justified.

Won't be going back to eat sorry!
