Aside from some rather interesting (and extremely drunk) regulars this is a nice pub. Food was a bit hit and miss; my chicken burger was lovely, my partner gave up on his Welsh faggots fairly quickly. The wine and beer were nice tho, not too expensive, and the staff were friendly. Toilets were pretty awful.

What a lovely first meal in Wales! We had a lovely beer and beautiful home style meal. Its a bit dated but such a warm country pub atmosphere. It was a beautiful intro to Wales.

My husband and I had a day off work to go Christmas shopping in Abergavenny and popped in here for lunch. It is a charming little pub and as soon as we entered the barman was really friendly and chatty. We both ordered the gammon, egg and chips and we were delighted when it arrived. The meal came with a... More

Looking at some of the reviews who were positive about this restaurant well all I can say that they must be very easy to please. A group of us ate there and we thought it was very ordinary. The quality of the food and the menu reminded me off an off night at a Weatherspoons. My wife had what was... More

The food is quite nice here, for the price anyway, portions could be bigger! This has the potential to be a lovely pub, but the toilets smell of urine and rest of the place is a bit grotty with sticky and wobbly tables. A makeover is desperately needed! It seems to be a magnet for alcoholics and one of the... More

We regularly stop for a drink here before the walk home. Nice plave to sit outside in he sun snd watch the busy shoppers rushing around. The beer is always good and there are regular guest beers to mix things up. The staff are generally pleasant and polite. The food we have had has been nice, but not huge portions.
