Not an extensive menu, but what they do, they do well! I always go for the chicken and goats cheese flat bread. My daughter enjoys the lasagne. Both are really very good. My wife had the pastrami and Emmental toastie, which she says is better than the Starbucks bagel version. Sandwiches and cakes are also available. Once you've been served... More

Nice little cafe, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The one gentleman behind the counter was friendly with all the customers in the que. Great cup of Tea, Coffee and two good cakes. £6.60. So it's not the normal high price you can get at Waitrose. All the available tables were clean, and ready to be used. Would definitely... More

She threw the bottle of whiskey down the checkout counter damaging the box,when I pointed this out to her she grudgingly asked an assistant to get another, which was also damaged. At forty pounds...

I come to Abergavenny on business once a month and always stop off at Waitrose for some shopping and a bite to eat before my journey back to the Midlands. It was a hot day yesterday (15/08/16) and chose one of their Quinoa salads with prawns and a delicious french dressing. The salad was clearly freshly prepared. It consisted of... More

Love this Waitrose but on a Friday evening with still hordes of customers and still 3 hours before closing the in-store bakery is closed and there's never any fresh bread.
