Staff are very friendly and helpful. We took our puppy as they are also a dog friendly pub and the staff gave him cuddles and treats. The food was also really tasty and good value for money, we will definitely be going again.

Were down in Monmouth during the Festival and this place was so lively. Certainly was popular with many attending the festival and from talking to some local people it is a pub they visit often.

What an unexpected find! A great evening with a variety of talented musicians covering a wide variety of genres. The place was rocking with friendly Monmouth folk who made us feel very welcome 😀
