Visited several times and sandwiches have always been good value for money with fresh tasty bread (white in our case) and choice of fillings. Overall good value for money and close to (southern) car park and bus station.

These two buildings are of historical importance in Abergavenny telling the history of the town and the countryside around it. There is an excellent tapestry akin to the Bayeux Tapestry showing scenes from various points in history of the town. The Priory contains many tombs...More
