“Great stopover”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

We stopped overnight on way down to South Wales and thought it was a lovely place with good food .Although we had pre booked our evening meal we decided to eat in the less formal bar area as it was late when we arrived . As vegetarians we chose mushroom soup and the home cooked cheese and leek ' sausages' and they were a really good choice but I think 'croquettes ' is a better description ! Breakfast was served in the dining room -again good food and lovely room .We would have preferred to eat breakfast a little later as it was Sunday but 9am is the latest time offered !

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3 which had a good view ( opposite the church) . Quite spacious and clean with nic...

Dear Richard

Thank you for your observations on Sunday evening even though one of the dishes was not to your taste. Yes, we do have a new Head Chef from a 2 rosette background who believes like ourselves in fresh quality ingredients cooked well and to order. So far there have been many compliments both verbal and via social media about his food, presentation and menu choices. We hope that with your obvious delight in food you will be joining them.

Above average pub food. Good ingredients well cooked, good flavours. A bit limited for vegetarians I noticed. The menus can be seen online.
It was a busy Tuesday lunchtime, the staff were lovely but the service was painfully slow and it was an almost unbearably long wait for the food,this explaines my average rating As a place to eat if you are passing through the area visiting Raglan Castle and surrounds it is a good choice.
Location is ideal for a visit to the large bustling village of Raglan which has a high street and some interesting shops. Very much a rural farming area.

Just had a lovely full course meal, out standing staff very helpful and polite. Meals we'll priced good size meals. Would highly recommend, the pulled pork burger is highly recommended, followed by the the Eton Mess dessert. We then retired to the bar where we had a relaxing drink after meal.

If you are heading west to Wales , it is worth making a detour off the A40 trunk road to The Beaufort Raglan ,situated just a few miles east of Abergavenny. A 16th century coaching inn with historic links to Raglan Castle ,it combines atmosphere and memorabilia with a contemporary brasserie style dining room that features a modern menu and thoughtful wine list.This part of Wales is brim full of ruined castles which can be explored from the Beaufort Raglan which has a good sized car park.

Room Tip: The front rooms look over the Church and the hills beyond

Called at The Beaufort Arms Hotel on the way back from Devon, for a spot of lunch. Good choice on our behalf, the food was very good, cooked to perfection and well presented and plenty of it, at a reasonable price.The Staff were very friendly and efficient, a very welcoming establishment, well worth a visit if you are in the area. Another one for our list of premises to visit again.

Best meal out this year. The brasserie and the meal was superb. Hoping to visit again. Staff were very attentive and professional. The restaurant staff were very attentive and the quality of the food was superb. Breakfast was equally as impressive.
