Tried this restaurant for lunch on 05/11/16. The pub gave the impression it was hanging on by a thread, it was cold, the food to be fair was ok but nothing to write home about. Service was good. It is difficult to describe the food, it was hot, plentiful, but could only be described as uninspiring and boring. I left... More

Four of us walked here from Usk and had a magnificent meal. Good choice of ales and nice staff.The only disappointing side is that this is a pub that has seats all around the bar, lovely for those sat on one and a real pain for anyone wanting to be served or see what the beer choices are!

We paid a bit extra and had a mix of beef pork and lamb. All meats come with a Yorkshire pudding. The veg is really good. The lamb and pork was so soft and tender. This is a really good. Sunday lunch ! Desserts are excellent too. We'll be back very soon

Group of 8 us went for dinner on a Saturday night. Food was served at very reasonable time. The quality and presentation was very good, very impressed. For a pub it very good, don't be fooled. The only issue we had was taking ages to get bill but very good value. Will be coming back here for food.

The room is pretty basic but has everything one needs. The rooms are located in the part of the house that is separate from the pub and they are accessible from the car park. The B&B is located in a beautiful spot, short walking distance from the town centre. I ordered food but the restaurant was so busy that I... More

We have been loyal patrons of The Olway since it opened 10 years ago. We love the consistently high standards of food which Nicola has never failed to deliver. The specials menu always offers a wide choice of dishes and consequently we always struggle to make our choices. The bar menu offers favourite pub food but again it's always home... More

This is an excellent example of what a great English country pub should be like. Great service, great beer and great food! If stopping over the rooms are spotless and quiet with nice views. The extra touches of bottles of water, toiletries and a nice tea/coffee tray etc in the room top off a very comfortable stay.

Not sure where to start as everything was so fantastic!!! From start to finish The Olway Inn owners and staff got it all 100% perfect. The 3 course meal was of the highest quality they catered for our 22 guests with class and elegance. The portion size was fantastic (not too big,not too small) The desserts were unbelievablely good, everything... More
