“what a lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

Called here whilst holidaying in area for lunch. Having seen menu we made this main meal of the day my wife have the steak pie - home cooked and beautifully presented and I had hake which had just right consistency with beautiful chips and minted peas. Pudding was excellent as was the beer and coffee. The whole lot was less than £30 for the 2 of us. This place has good food at reasonable prices with good service. Don't miss it if you are in the area

“Glorious Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

Lovely location with the derelict, yet beautiful Abbey of Tintern in the back drop - the food was stunning... possibly the best lamb I have ever tasted - and my partners pork was up there with the best we have ever tasted. Especially the pork belly.

Would recommend to anybody passing through this part of Wales.

“Quick lunch....good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

We were travelling to a hotel further west and had booked dinner. Just needed a quick light lunch. Ordered a jacket spud with a salad. Served by a very pleasant young lady. We have eaten so many undercooked jackets that I thought..."here we go again ....prepare for the 3 o clock indigestion bout.!" It arrived very quickly and it was just great. Well cooked and well presented. Lashings of cheese and a good salad . Great atmosphere as there were loads of bikers on a charity event. Good to see not one of them was drinking anything stronger than Coke.
An example to us all

“Service was iffy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

The food was typical pub food, just average, with a stale oil taste. Waiters were young people who didn't seem to have been trained, not very attentive. Few vegetarian options. Seemed to us that they traded on the view, which was wonderful. The bad thing about outdoor seating in the UK is that they allow smoking everywhere, which restricts outdoor seating for non smokers. Still, it was probably the second best place to eat in Tintern.

“Best pub food in the Lower Wye Valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Had a meal here recently, in a group of eight. Excellent food, which all came at the same time, with no mistakes. Lovely helpful and capable waittress. Good beers. Couldn't fault it.
