I love visiting Abbey Mill on several occasions throughout the day the water wheel is active and is a glimpse of the past. As for the shops I could spend hours looking at the hand crafted items on sale and after hunting high and low for a sturdy metal long handled shoe horn found that I had a choice of them here ! There are usually several incredibly friendly dogs wandering about this friendly attraction which sits on the bank of the river Wye in the shadow of Tintern Abbey.

Really simple, family-run set-up which has created a great little spot for lunch, a walk by the river and some really interesting craft shops within a short walk of Tintern Abbey. Food is good - not too expensive and decent portions - and you can see the hard work the team are putting in. Well worth a look

This welcoming cafe was happy to accommodate eight cold, damp campers and a dog at Sunday lunchtime and offered a surprising selection of vegetarian meals as well as the usual fare. Service was fast and friendly and the food was piping hot and delicious. There's a decent children's menu and the kids' meals came with a free ice-cream. We enjoyed looking round the quirky little shops afterwards and will definitely be back for a return visit.

Collection of gifts shops in pleasant surroundings ,with views of wye valley and a restaurant that makes delicious homemade pies which is also licenced selling local brewery ales and wines. Staff very friendly although paying by card in restaurant is a problem, have to go to gift shop to pay and couldn't connect via phone line. They le us eat first then try again and managed to pay eventually.
Would definitely visit again, enjoyed our meal there, they close up early prompt at 4.30pm.

Visited with friends and our dog. So first things first - brilliantly dog friendly (and that is why they are being give 5 stars rather than 4)! The seating was a bit cozy but we managed well enough. Service was prompt and desserts and coffee excellent. To pay by credit card - there is no signal so our nominated person had to go pay at another shop? I will take cash next time!
