What a great little find. Food great. Owners and staff fabulous. Stayed for two nights. Felt really relaxed was not rushed in any way. Will be coming again. Loved all the oldness of the Inn even the creaky floors. Thank you so much.

There are probably much better places to eat in Tintern. The location, beside the ruined abbey, is quite special. The food was typical pub fare. The staff we very busy and efficient.

Late Sunday lunch with family (including small baby). Good choice, good food & service. Meals & drinks served promptly & no issues with choice or portion size. Large facility (but lots of small areas (for privacy). Good garden & parking space. Nice location
