Monmouth is a little like any town in rural Wales for New Years Eve celebrations. There will be lots of drinking, fireworks and then more drinking.

There are approximately 8 pubs in the centre so a crawl might be in order.

A friend of mine sometimes walks up the Kymin hill nearby to watch the fireworks at midnight.

Thank you very much, it sounds good. One other question, any places you could recommend to have a meal?

You could always give Dave Edmunds a call and ask whether he is organising another gig at the community centre ...

Otherwise, walking up the Kymin is a great idea as long as you are fit for it - it is quite a long hike.

For some good local food I would go to Bistro Prego:

In that case have you looked at Trip Advisor's restaurant reviews for Monmouth:

Pay attention to the map on the right so you can see which ones are in the centre.

For £15 you get a great band, pub prices, Thai buffet meal, new year champagne and happy atmosphere. They also have well priced accommodation. Enjoy the Coach House!
