“Lovely Father's Day lunch”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

What a superb lunch from start to finish. Warm day so drinks and canapes on the terrace. Amuse bouche and 3 beautiful courses. Coffee and petit fours back in the sunshine. The kitchen heritage is Crown at Whitebrook and this shows. Front of house team were friendly and efficient. This place is up amongst the best of the many great places to eat around Abergavenny.

“Could do better”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

I would love to be able to give this restaurant a better review. The owners have done a fabulous job on the decor and environment, the waiting staff were lovely, but the menu has limitations and the food quality not quite up to scratch. We had the sunday lunch. Thoughtful touches such as sauces, and meat specific gravy are good, but the actual food just a bit disappointing. And our veggie guest was disappointed that the single veggie option was, yet again a risotto. A generous plate but every spoon the same, whilst we meat eaters had a good selection of meat and veg flavours and textures to enjoy. I w0uld love to visit again if the meat quality improved, and the veggie options include something which goes with the range of veg offered to meat eaters.

“Stunning tasting menu with generous wine”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Certainly up there with the best meals I've had (and I've travelled widely so this is no false praise). This was a special meal but, being local(ish) we didn't stay although the hotel looks very, very inviting. The building and setting are wonderful. We enjoyed a tasting menu of excellent quality and diversity with relaxed and attentive service and a superb selection of wines that were generously served! Special and totally recommended and we will return.

“Fine Dining”
Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

Fine dining with delicious food and very attentive service. That said they were understaffed when we visited which meant the service was slow.
Overall this place has a lot of potential but really needs some rejuvenation to add the cherry to what is potentially a very tasty cake. For example repairing the path to allow easier access for those with difficulty walking to enter the restaurant from the outside garden seating area.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

We visited this hotel for lunch with friends and it was truly a memorable occasion. From arriving through the doors into reception there was a welcome which was the start of a lovely experience. The staff went that extra mile to make your visit memorable.The quality of the food was excellent and was very reasonably priced. Would definitely return and take advantage of a stay overnight as it was quite a drive for us but thoroughly worth it. Thank you every one of the staff we met that day.
