AA Pick of the Pubs
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. So try a starter of laver bread cake with smoked bacon, garlic and cockles, then follow on with saddle of Brecon venison, Welsh black pudding, sweet and sour pickled beetroot. Finish with chocolate and almond praline tart.
