The pub dates back to 1207, according to the carving in the stone. And t fully enjoy this gem of a pub and its beautiful setting, you need to be told the story of the new owners, which I heard from one of the locals (the friendliest bunch I have ever encountered). It's run by two brothers. One brother behind the bar, one brother in the kitchen. And their mum (Granny Beryl), making the puddings and running the books. I visited with my parents, and we had a lovely time, enjoying an evening meal, a drink until well into the night, and then a lunch the next day.
High spots: Really good beer - excellent Doom Bar. Superb steak (the rib eye, from a farm within a mile or two) was mouthwatering. Red DragonSausages, according to the menu from local butcher were awesome. Fresh veg, all well presented.
But you really have to try Granny Beryl's Raspberry and Hazelnut Meringue. Best desert I've tasted for years.
Highly recommended, and I wish the new owners the best.
We stayed at the lovely Old Rectory, just 200m up the hill.
Tip for drivers: The postcode of the pub did not work in my BMW satnav, which also did not register the road. My tip is to head for Llangattock Lingoed from Abergavenny. You'll find the roadsign to it, then you just have to trust the road to get you there. After 10 minutes, which is about the time you are giving up hope, you come across the pub. It's really in the middle of nowhere, which is part of its charm.
