We stopped at this restaurant just by chance yesterday. We had not booked but they accommodated us with a table. They were serving a set menu 2 or 3 course lunch. We had the 2 course, dinner and pudding. It was the best Sunday lunch ever! I had lamb and my husband had pork. The veg was all fresh with... More

Stopped off here for a drink after a walk around the castle. We didn't order food but the people around us had and it looked delicious. We sat outside in the sun and enjoyed the ambience. Staff were friendly and helpful and the toilets were immaculate (always a good sign.) Would definitely come back here and try their food as... More

My wife and I had lunch at The Bell with friends we hadn't seen for many years. It was a beautiful Spring day. The Bell is situated in a stunning setting, a meeting of several valleys. The decor of The Bell was very comfortable and welcoming. I had beef and ale pie followed by lemon posset for lunch. My wife... More

Not one to complain but it is... More

When trying to book a place for my wife's birthday, I was looking for a place away from our norm of restaurants in the city centre or Cardiff Bay. The Bell at Skenfrith was recommended to me and BOY was I glad that it was. Situated in Skenfrith it's a short drive from Monmouth, which put us just about an... More

We had Sunday lunch here today and all four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. 3 had the crab starter and 1 the butternut squash soup with tarragon. For mains, 2 lamb, 1 beef and 1 risotto (a huge portion). We all managed desserts too, which were all excellent. The service was good, attentive but not obtrusive. The wine list... More

Managed to book a table the same day. The Bell is a lovely country style pub/restaurant set next to the river. The interior is very warm and inviting, it looks to have had a modern and recent refurbishment but still manages to have a warm and cosy country feel with a large, open fireplace in the bar area. The staff... More

When we called by, sadly the pub was closed for renovation but the staff still opened up and let us in to use the phone and wait in the warm. Very friendly and helpful staff.

It was a recommendation from one of my wife's colleagues. Place itself is in a lovely setting and looks very inviting from the outside, a theme which continues on the inside with its slab floors and log fire giving it a very homely feel. Staff were very welcoming and kindly. Usually, places like this are a little dark inside but... More

We had Sunday lunch in the lovely dining room looking out over the gardens and fields. The menu is more interesting than many at Sunday lunch. The food was excellent as was the service and atmosphere. We had a Saturday lunch here in the summer when you are able to sit outside. On that occasion we had some very fresh... More
