Recently ate in the Oak Room again for Valentine's evening. Had to prepay which we have never done before for a meal but have had so many excellent meals there we were convinced the experience would be a good one. We weren't disappointed, the staff were lovely with the right amount of attentiveness, the ambience was excellent and pleasant piano... More

My wife, Margaret and I booked for lunch in the hotel's Oak Room restaurant on Wednesday, 15 February. It was a cold and damp winter's day in this quaint, ancient Welsh market town, which sees itself as the Gateway to Wales. We'd dined here a couple or more times before and were looking forward to a comforting meal to keep... More

Staying in a hotel with no dining facilities I had to rely on recommendations from Andrej on reception and what a treat he suggested! Such a tasteful and beautiful dining room - a little like the interior of a swanky London gentlemen's club and gorgeous just to sit in, look around and soak up the refined setting. Attentive and friendly... More

Great food in a relaxed and elegant setting. The staff were so understanding of my dietary requirements and I had one of my best gluten free experiences in a restaurant since I became intolerant 2 years ago

Had Sunday lunch in the oak room & it was superb. Food was excellent - a good range of options, presented really well & absolutely delicious. Considering standard the price is good for 2 courses - couldn't fit a starter in (may have over done it on the sour dough bread whilst we waited for starters). A nice atmosphere -... More

We didn't stay at the hotel itself but took advantage of the restaurant while visiting Abergavenny on four occasions. It was the only place to enjoy consistently good food and friendly and attentive staff. Cod goujons with Thai mayo; Chicken, leek and ham pie; delicious breads - sourdoughs and focaccias - from the Angel Bakery next door. Good selection of... More

I haven't eaten at this hotel for a long time but had heard good things about the food - and I wasn't disappointed. The family gathered a few days before Christmas and we were given the front window table. The food, service and atmosphere was first class and the price wasn't bad either! Three of the party chose burgers (looked... More
