The staff were really friendly and very helpful the owner even checked with the chief on what I could eat (I was 8 months pregnant... More

We had a Sunday roast here and it was fantastic. We received a friendly welcome followed by drinks in the reception prior to being seated. There are lots of fine touches such as a palate cleansing jelly after the starter and having after dinner tea/coffee in the lounge served with a sweets selection. First class and not too expensive considering... More

Had a wonderful evening here last night from the moment you walk in you are made to feel special with little things like them over hearing it was my birthday and then decorating the table with birthday confetti. The food is excellent and service is warm and friendly will be visiting again soon.

A lovely relaxed atmosphere and special ambience. An interesting menu with seasonal produce enhanced by a talented chef. It was hard to decide what to order! Very personable and attentive service. What a gem of a place that we're lucky to have near by. I can't eat dairy and for many restaurants this can be a big challenge and you're... More

Really lovely evening and wonderful food would certainly recommend. Possibly due to its location we found it went quiet very early so after our meal we went elsewhere for a drink.

I love this resturant. Atmosphere relaxing and quiet so you can sit and enjoy your meal. Food yummy and tastey. Booked under the birthday offer and very pleased with the total bill.

Beautiful little restaurant with a gentle ambience. Although advertised as in 'Abergavenny', it is situated miles outside the town centre so if you are staying in the town and planning to walk - don't! Good selection of wine and absolutely delicious food but I felt it was overpriced for the portion size. Still, a lovely treat if you don't mind... More
