AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Restaurant menu

Whether eating in, or just enjoying a pint brewed just three miles away, visitors are sure of a warm welcome at this stone-built 19th-century pub, which was taken over by William Brown in 2015. At the heart of a small village tucked between Tintern Forest and the Usk Valley, this neat inn continues to receive praise for its varied and frequently changing menu. The head chef and his team use high quality ingredients for the imaginative menu. The pub is keen to reduce food miles and most suppliers are within a nine mile radius; from further afield, the fish is delivered from Cornwall each day. So try a starter of sautéed handpicked forest mushrooms, garlic focaccia and black truffle hollandaise, then follow on with oven-roasted Falmouth Bay cod fillet, Newquay lobster risotto, roast fennel, mussel, caper and lemon dressing. Finish with carrot and wildflower honey cake perhaps.
