Visited today on a busy day, but we weren't expecting anything amazing... We only asked for a cup of tea - was told by an oldish chap at the bar "we don't serve tea" We just wanted a warm drink on such a cold day and he gave the impression that they only served bar drinks.

You receive a warm welcome as soon as you enter the bar. The service continues to be great all evening.The food is excellent. It is hot and freshly cooked and substantial, just the thing after an energetic walk in the gorgeous countryside. I can recommend the rabbit pie, the vegetable pancakes,the sausages, the chicken in red wine and the desserts.... More

We came across this pub and found the food was great and so was the service. A great find in Usk. We left very pleasantly surprised.
