The Crown is one of our favourite destinations when the weather is fine and the idea of a walk near Abergavenny seems like a good idea. The walk this time was up the Sugar Loaf with spectacular views over the Usk Valley: Blorenge, Clydach Gorge and Brecon Beacons. Afterwards we headed, as so often before, to the Crown in expectation... More

We found The Crown on TripAdvisor and are delighted we did! The first thing we noticed when we arrived was the fantastic view of the Skirrid from the front garden. The food was excellent, the atmosphere relaxed, the service attentive and the staff welcoming and friendly. Highly recommended and we'll be back.

The Crown has to be one of the finest establishments in the UK for great food, great beer and wine, brilliant staff, perfect location. So many good things have already been written, I can only endorse them all. Visit The Crown, you will not be disappointed. Steve and Cherrie should be immensely proud of their business.

Excellent meal once again at the Crown. We've never been disappointed here. We live just outside Abergavenny, tried most restaurants locally, and The Crown is probably the best in the area.

Went for Sunday lunch recently with my wife. The service was really good and the food very tasty. We had the beef and the pork which went down well. My sticky toffee pudding for afters was a nice treat as well. All washed down with some good wine and a pint before stumbling back to the cabin in the woods... More

We are having a short break near Abergavenny and read about The Crown on trip advisor. We didn't book but we're given a warm welcome and shown a table. I had the delicious leek, raisin and hazelnut risotto and hubby had the prawn cocktail. Sea bass fillet with fennel and a caper butter was my main, it was delicious and... More

We had never visited The Crown before so thought we would try it for a change. The welcome we received was very warm. We ordered three courses and they were all homemade and fantastic. No packet food here! We both had the steak and we must admit they were cooked to perfection. We both felt that they were some of... More

This place has it all. A beautifully maintained pub with an excellent range of real ales, superb food and very friendly boss and staff. We are two hard bitten, cynical travellers who are always ready for disappointment yet we were bowled over by the welcome and quality. It's probably one of the very best pubs in Wales. Get there quickly!

Thank 74Mozart
