“The view 'wins the day'”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

A definite tourist hotspot on a sunny bank-holiday weekend

Beautiful setting in the Wye Valley. Stunning view from the beer garden of the Abbey. A great place to stop and enjoy the scenery

Parking is limited and remember to bring your £3 payment (you can reclaim this)

Had food in the Anchor - average to good pub food that I'd rate 5 or 6 out of 10

Not a gastro pub, but good and wholesome

“Fantastic Food!”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

We were starving when we got to Tintern, so before we went to the Abbey fancied a nice substantial lunch and The Anchor fulfilled! I had the crispiest freshly friend hake in batter with delicious chips and homemade mushy peas and tartare i've ever had and my husband had a wonderful beef bourginon type stew with mash - very snug and relaxing place to eat with lovely staff and great food. Or you can eat in the Garden Room which is more of a tea room with sandwiches, baked potatoes and lovely cakes! Great place to eat while visiting Tintern!

“Very pleasant, we will return”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Went here on a Monday evening so it was quite quiet and sat in the bar area which was very pleasant. The menu was varied and there was something to suit all tastes. We had the Tria of Pork and Braised Beef, both were yummy. Service was good, (but it was quiet), nice local ales. There seemed to be different seating areas, bar, conservatory and restaurant. I would come back but from reading the other reviews would avoid busy times (Sunday lunch, bank holidays etc.)

“Lovely food in a fantastic setting”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

We ate in the Garden Room with fantastic views over Tintern Abbey. The tomato and mozzarella risotto was excellent as we're the fish pie and the trio of pork. Great service and friendly staff. Highly recommended.
