Despite being local, this was our first visit but it won’t be our last. Our group of seven ranged from 6 to 79 and there was something for all of us. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and plentiful. Service was great, too. We will...More

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 😀

The balcony was being re-arranged after being totally trashed and re-organised by selfish, arrogant and thoughtless (thankfully the minority) of people who do such things. It was necessary work to give everybody a fair chance of getting a table and seats. This, however, did not...More
