Overnight stop on way home from from riding holiday. Good location with comfortable spacious rooms. Beds comfy, shower hot, our room also had a fridge which was handy. There is parking less than 1 minute away. I emailed a few questions to hosts & got quick response. Would definitely stay again. We did not eat but the menu was extensive.

Visited the establishment that is central to Abergavenny, on Market Street! Thoroughly enjoyed the visit! Enjoyed the fish menu, and a wide selection of specials on the boards. Suggest you try the beer "Blue Moon" together with locally brewed real ales.

Called in to The Farmers Arms in Abergavenny for Sunday lunch after hearing an advert for them on the local radio. We were told there would be a little bit of a wait as they were busy.
