We stayed a night on our travels through Wales. Management very accommodating, and the chef prepared a meal that was fantastic ...extended the menu meal! Thanks! Pub atmosphere great, and the en suite room very comfortable. Key to the back door appreciated for an early start! The only draw back was no close parking available (with big suitcases)...but management porter-ed... More

Had a great night here. Good food which was very rich but tasty and a band on as well. Got pretty busy. Good atmosphere as well. Would recommend for a night out. On one of the side streets in Abergavenny but easy to find

Having been completely redecorated in recent years, the Farmers is one of the smartest pubs in Abergavenny with a wide selection of food and drink. Well fitted throughout. Often has live music. Lovely pub.

group of 7 booked in advance, quiet Monday evening. Although there were a few tables eating. Limited choice on menu, but guess that is to maintain quality because everything cooked fresh. When ordering was told there was only one rib eye steak left, alarm bells started because we were booked in and when u only have around 6 choices of... More

Had an excellent evening meal. They specialise in steak but other dishes are available and the chips were fantastic! Wine list is yet to be finalised but only apparently as a result of them being let down by local wine merchant. Good local beer on tap.

Arrived on Sunday pm so the whole town turning into a ghost town! Very dated artex in room. Black hair on my sheets and I decided I was cleaner not having a shower! A new vacuum cleaner wouldn't go a miss too.

Stay multiple times at the Farmers Arms for business. The first week was just the first day John & Sakara took over the Inn. Some weeks later I stayed for 3 weeks in a row, and now back for one week. A next visit is already planned. Food is very good (thanks to chef Marc). The service is good. The... More
