“A little gem !”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

Stayed for 3 nights in June so that we could enjoy Usk Open Gardens weekend without having the move the car over the weekend. The Olway is less than a 10 minute walk from Usk town square so the plan worked perfectly. This is a traditional, quaint Inn with rooms. It's spotlessly clean throughout and is located down a quiet country lane. Our bedroom was well appointed with some nice touches, e.g. jar of sweets beside the bed, bottled water which was replenished daily and good quality toiletries and towels. Its owned and managed by a young couple who work tremendously hard to offer a warm welcome and personal service. This is not corporate hospitality .... this is genuine customer service delivered with a smile. Nicola is an excellent chef and it seems that a lot of care has gone into providing home cooked food which has been sourced locally ... if not grown by themselves ! They work long and hard to provide the best possible and it certainly tells in the food .... both breakfasts and dinner were a delight. They offer some interesting local ciders and not surprisingly, have a loyal local following. For the nature watchers - there is an 'ottercam' in the bar which is directed at the river beside the Inn and otters have been spotted within the last three weeks. Unfortunately for us, they were spotted around 10.30pm and after a excellent dinner and a good but reasonably priced bottle of wine - we didn't actually see 10.30pm in the bar on any night ! If you are in Monmouthshire, give this place a try. We will certainly return.

We stayed at the Olway Inn for one night on the 28th June and we had a lovely stay. The Owners and the Staff are so friendly and helpful. There was a band on the night we stayed and they were great. The Owners put on a barbecue and the food was delicious.
Breakfast was tasty and our room was lovely.
This really is a little gem and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We also visited here for food the week before and that was absolutely delicious too
We would definitely stay here again

Popped in on fathers day while out for a drive with a friend. Asked the landlord if they could fit 2 in for some food. They were fully booked but kindly found a table in the bar for us.

I ordered ribs as a starter and they were delicious. I opted for the three meat mix as a main! All the meats were cooked to perfection especially the lamb shoulder but the star of the 'show' was the homemade gravy! Yummy. Sadly, I was too full to have a desert.

I have eaten here before and bar food is amazing, all homemade and locally sourced. The burger is amazing, home-made fish fingers with chips a must and the curry and chilli is amazing!! 10/10 for every bit of food I have eaten here.

There is also an excellent selection of quality wine and beer. The wine list is what I call real wine and not branded rubbish!

If you like good quality food for an amazing price this is the place to go! Very family friendly and dogs are welcome in the bar.

2 night stay whilst exploring this beautiful part of the country with my precious motorbike, which very nicely the trusting and helpful proprietors let me store in their garage. Ample car park otherwise. Atmosphere is relaxed, come and go as you please, with lovely sitting out area to enjoy the peace and quiet and scenery. More a pub with rooms than bespoke hotel but the rooms are very well appointed with comfy bed and good quality linen, TV, tea/coffee making, complimentary bottled water, biscuits and sweets, hairdrier, iron and ironing board, reasonable lighting, ample storage and well appointed en suite with nice towels, toiletries, all spic and span with everything working as it should. Walls a bit thin. Breakfasts are superb- full works really sets you up for the day. Rear restaurant used mainly for functions but bar area pleasant enough to sup from a good drinks offer including real ale and local cider and sample dishes from a better than the usual pub fayre menu, many home made, eg garlic mushrooms, fishcakes, curry, chicken and chorizo kebabs, and many mains priced well below £10. Some nice details too, eg starched linen, oil/balsamic vinegar dip, etc. Would certainly stay again as/when in the area.

Needed a night stop en-route from N Wales. Were attracted by the handy location just off major route and the good reviews. Arrived a bit late on a sunday night but they managed a good meal for us. Linen napkits in the bar - nice touch. Nice friendly atmosphere. No public rooms other that the pleasant bar area. Room well furnished and spotless! Hard to fault. great breakfast freshly cooked

We stayed at the Olway Inn Hotel over the weekend 15 - 17 March 2013. It is ideally situation on the edge of the town of Usk. Newport and Cardiff are within easy reach. The proprietors and staff at the hotel could not have been more helpful and friendly. Whilst the rooms are small, they are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is huge and the evening meals are first class. An excellent comfortable and friendly venue for exploring South East Wales. We will be back!!

This pub is in an excellant location(will be definiately going there in the Summer) and its almost perfect pub food and serves almost perfect draught beer.

The two things that let it down where firstly not having the draught beer ready for pulling and secondly and this is a personal thing, having the skin on the chips. For me (and top chefs agree) that the skin should be taken off chips.

I told you it was almost perfect.
