“Good food and service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Friendly staff with well-priced, quality food in a picturesque pub blessed with wonderful views. The food took a little while to get to us but was well worth the wait. Even my fussy daughter thoroughly enjoyed her beer-battered fish and chips.

“Great Sunday Night Bar Scene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Really surprised...... Stumbled across this place on a Sunday night when the rest of Abergavenny is very quiet. Didn't eat here but called in for a few drinks. There was a live band, more of a "live mike" actually and instead of overwhelming the whole establishment it was located in the adjoining front bar area so din't completely dominate the whole pub. The Bar team, as they very much come across that way, obviously socialise as well as work together as you can see that they actually enjoy doing what they do and want to be in work. Its refreshing to see.

The manageress was handing out free cake to all customers, cant tell you what it tasted like as I declined the offer.

Would definately go back and recommend.

“Great Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

old style pub with old furniture but lots of friendliness and a great range of local beers. food menu extensive and what we had was very good and excellent value for money. They have live music there at various times which adds to the general feeling of well being and enjoyment. Recommend a visit!

“Friendly and welcoming with good pub grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

An old pub that looks a bit shabby from outside. The inside looks a bit like a cafe and the seating seems out of place and spoils the ambience. However, the staff are great and really attentive and the food was really good for pub grub and value for money. I would eat here again.

“Only if you really had to...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

For a group of lads on a stag night; Great! For a place to have a beer on route to somewhere else; Great!

For anyone wanting a quiet evening with a little bit of atmosphere, a reason to wear something smart, a place to take the older generation, or somewhere family friendly....This is NOT the place to go....
