“lovely place to stay.......”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

stayed here for one night as we were attending a wedding just down the road, what a lovely cosy pub as soon as we walked in we loved it, as we wasnt staying long we didnt find out very much about it but definately will be returning to find out more. anyway when we first arrived we were greeted by a nice warm welcome and smile which was nice and started the day off good because that goes a long way in my opinion, the B&B was clean & tidy. the bedroom was comfortable with Tea & Coffee available and to be honest plenty, the staff were very friendly throughout our stay, Breakfast in the morning was one of the best we ever had. we will certainly be visiting this B&B in the near future. Thank you once again for making us welcome see you soon.

My wife and I visited Usk earlier in the year for the day with a view to visiting the Cross Keys Inn for lunch. The reason being that as a child, my father used to bring us here fairly regularly from Cardiff for Sunday Lunch. On that particular day, we stopped in for a drink and then went for a wlak around the few shops before returning for lunch....alas, when we did return an hour later, the place was packed with people eating!! So, we left with a view to returning again another day.

My sister had booked us in to a hotel not far away for NY Eve and we visited the Cross Keys on NY Day for lunch. 2 of the party were hungover.....say no more....but we all ordered food and it was absolutely delicious! Plenty of it and hot and tasty and homecooked.

The fire was roaring and it was just a nice reminder of our childhood over 30 years ago. Despite my sister not finishing her meal - one of the 2 hungover - even she declared how nice it was!

All in all, TOTALLY RECOMMENDED and we have vowed to return in the New Year some time. Great service in an Olde Worlde pub full of character and charm.

The room is nice, but this is by far the loudest accommodation I have ever had. Our room is right over the pub- it feels like we're sharing a room with 50 people. The walls are paper thin, so we can also hear everything going on in the rooms next to us. Stay somewhere else if you want some quiet. Horrible.

We went in (Saturday 12 October) because they were advertising evening meals. We ordered three beers, one "Bob" two Moorlands "Speckled Hen". But when we asked at the bar for food they told us that they weren't serving food.

We enjoyed the beer in front of the blazing log fire, but left because we really needed some food.

We had a very pleasant 2 night stay in this pub. The pub is very old and full of character and the staff friendly and very welcoming.

Our room was spacious with a flatscreen TV and leather settee. However, not all the rooms are the same size. The rooms was full of character with beams and charming stonework on the ceiling.

The carpet on the stairs was dirty, which alarmed me on arrival, but our room itself was lovely and clean.

Overall a very pleasant stay, we would return.
