Arrived in Tintern on a miserable wet day. Used the maps on my Blackberry to find somewhere to eat and came up with Brockweir Country Inn.
What a surprise and what a treat! Looked a bit miz from the outside but, as mentioned, it was a cold and wet day. Inside we were met by warm and friendly staff and roaring log fires in both the Country Lounge and the Public Bar. (I think these names hark back to the "olden days" because the Public Bar was a cosy little spot with three tables accommodating 10/15 people).
The food was good and interesting. Well presented and thoughtful. I wanted the Welsh Rarebit as a main with no salad and they were happy to do that. It should have been a starter with salad... Mum had tomato and herb soup, which was tasty. Sister had crustless leek and cheese pie which was delicious. B-in-L had pork which he declared to be tastier than he had the previous night at a highly recommended bistro.
This is not a fancy pub and it is not a fast food joint... it is a delightful, traditional, country pub with no airs and graces but plenty of charm, character and warmth. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend if you want an honest, down to earth meal.
