Traditional pub just off the main drag through Abergavenny. Now owned & run by Brains. Standard Pub grub to a reasonable standard. Burgers always unctious.

We stopped for lunch and just ordered 2 sandwiches and 2 drinks. The barmaid didn't have much in the way of customer service going on, but the food was good. Not a very comfortable pub (a few old scatter cushions on wooden benches) but OK...More

Nice pub and always a favourite when we are in the area. This time they couldn't supply what we ordered due to a lack of ability. Disappointed but I expect will will try again.
