Travelling between Abergavenny and Raglan my wife and I thought we would call in to the Clytha Arms for a drink and possibly a meal. I went to the bar and waited for 10+ minutes with no staff to be seen. Also two other couples in the bar were wandering about looking fo service. I gave up. On my way... More

A friendly welcome in a traditional pub. Child friendly with child seats available. Good menu selection. However the delay from ordering to receiving the food was far too long especially as pub was quiet and other than a toasted sandwich did not need cooking. Quality of the food was very good apart from less than fresh bread for the sandwich.... More

The Clytha Arms was perfect for a lovely beer in the garden following a fresh climb to the top of the Sugar Loaf. Dog friendly pub and plenty of beers to chose from, we will certainly be back for food sometime soon!

The Clytha arms is in a fab location and the front of the building looks lovely and welcoming, alas the interior does not have the same appeal. The sitting/small dining room was not great, leather sofas that needed a good clean and a fire place that still had a half burt large log in it with various bits of paper... More

The Clytha Arms is an award winning country pub set in the Welsh countryside near Abergavenny. If you wish to eat a meal, you are advised to book in advance as it is in some demand. In addition to a well stocked bar, the pub offers a large and interesting menu. We had a bourride of shellfish, a type of... More

A long walk with the dogs was made all the more special by a mid-week supper at The Clytha. We sat outside in the garden where the dogs had to be tethered because of the proximity of the road. We would do that anyway so as not to disturb other guests so no problem there. My friend and I both... More

Myself and friends (16 of us) arrived hoping for just a Saturday lunch time sandwich or snacks and beers to be told they were busy but could still do something for us .They recommended we have bowls of chips to avoid waiting long. We didn't have to wait long but the bowls of chips were minuscule and at £3.50 a... More

This is a great pace to visit for a drink. Very good choice of beers (incl some local) in a convivial bar. In addition to the 'regulars' they also do guest beers. Cannot comment on the dining room as have not eaten there for a long while but the light bar bites are OK.

Called in for a quick coffee and small beer on the way home before the school run. I had not been here for some time. Years ago, the beer and service was excellent. It looks a bit dated now and could do with a bit of a refresh. Long and short of it was that the coffee took 20 mins... More
