 Our restaurant has won many awards for its food. Recently, we were very proud to have won the ‘Best Place to Eat – Pub’ in the Wales National Tourism Awards, as voted by the public.  

Our Head Chef Joseph Colman, who hails from Wales, changes his menus regularly.  The produce is seasonal and locally sourced with some from our own kitchen garden. Special dietary requirements can usually be met but we ask that you let us know of these in advance.  We have a delicious Children’s menu – see menus page. We regret that under 8s are not allowed in the restaurant after 7pm in the evenings but we will happily organise supper for them from 6pm to 6.30pm.

In good weather, guests may eat on the garden terrace or order a picnic basket and rug and sit up in the orchard which has amazing views over the Monnow river below.  Private parties are most welcome, by prior arrangement, and we have a lovely room which can be reserved.

We are open for breakfast, bar snacks, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.  Lunch is from 12pm to 2.30pm Monday to Saturday and we are open for drinks all day.   On Sundays we serve a traditional lunch from 12pm until 4pm (or until we run out of food!) and dinner from 6pm to 8pm so that our guests have the flexibility to eat before or after whatever plans they might have for the day.

We recommend booking for all occasions 01600 750235.

Getting Here – we are about 15 minutes from Monmouth, 20 minutes from Abergavenny, 25 minutes from Hereford, 40 minutes from Bristol, just over an hour from Birmingham and three hours from London (traffic allowing).

The Dog and Boot Bar

The Dog and Boot Bar is a great hit with walkers and their four-legged friends, especially those who are sporting a little bit more muck on their shoes or paws than usual.  The atmosphere is thoroughly relaxed and we offer a special Bar Snack menu, as well as complimentary biscuits for dogs (only)!

The Pooch Parlour is in the rear garden. There is a shower and metal bath to clean  muddy animals.. Dog towels are available from reception.
