This is our 3rd visit this year and lunch today (Saturday, 26th November, 2016) was disappointing. Service was somewhat casual and disorganised. When we arrived, we went into the restaurant area and told them we had a table booked - we were asked to go into the bar and somebody would be with us shortly to take us to our... More

Came here for my mothers birthday which we mentioned to them but they didn't do anything!! to mark that. We alll had roast dinners and the food was very good BUT the service was almost non-existent. Despite being 'looked after' by probably 8 different people we felt forgotten sat in the conservatory with the excellent views. They really need to... More

Understand the Inn is under new ownership and explains the problems with booking and usual admin. Putting that aside, what a find! Arrived following a lovely drive through the Wye Valley, to see a beautiful old building, bar area with open fire, flagstone floors, serving great Ale. Staff very polite and helpful. Went to my room, which was lovely. (... More

They have a limited menu and a little expensive for size of portions, but if you put like your food on a slate, like some pea shoots or fancy green on the plate and then have the price adjusted to match this then you will be happy. Got to say the starter of belly pork was excellent but my choice... More

Essentially a restaurant in the countryside just S of Monmouth. A somewhat limited menu but I consider that a good indication. Much better for restaurants to do a few dishes well than to try to offer dozens of dishes which are pretty average or poor. We were there with friends and had an excellent meal - good food and good... More

This was a repeat visit based on an excellent meal a year or so ago. The experience this time was not quite as good although it’s difficult to say why. The meal and service were good - just not as good. We understand from other reviews that it’s changed ownership. We disagree with some others who seem to us to... More

This place is under new management and given the time will establish themselves in this area and beyond. We had been regular customers under the previous management and were pleasantly surprised when we returned to discover that the staff had altered, the ale, food and service was still good. We will call in again in a few weeks and hopefully... More

Another brilliant meal with family. Sunday lunch, slow roast beef was awesome, staff very good. Keep it up, see you in a couple of months for round two.

After reading positive reviews we thought we'd give this place a go. We were extremely disappointed, for £16.99 I was expecting something grand instead all we got was bland beef, tasteless gravy, 3 old roast potatoes and a tiny pathetic bowl of veg that was boiled and looked very unappetising and I can confirm it was also tasteless. We voiced... More

Chris & Bronwyn offer you a very warm welcome to their 18th century country inn and restaurant serving the very best in Welsh & local produce. With a wood burning fire, a great selection of wines and friendly service. Our a la carte menu can be served in our cosy restaurant, in our dog friendly bar, or our conservatory with panoramic views of the beautiful Wye Valley.
