We've visited this pub several times over the last year whilst staying at Penllwyn lodges (most recently May '17). What a fantastic place - excellent service from a team of really polite & helpful staff. Great food, great beer, and dog friendly (our dog always has a bowl of water from the nice lady behind the bar!). Look forward to... More

We call in for lunch nearly every time we come home from our eldest daughters in Pembrokeshire, this I think speaks for itself. Food and service never faulted.

Visited for lunch while walking along the Monmouth Canal. The food is excellent, the staff are nice, and well trained; and the bill was reasonable. The place is clean and warm, as well as being well located for the Severn Path.

The staff were polite and my pate was good, nothing special.
