This was the end venue for our Car Cliub drive. We decided to stay as we had come ftom Mid Wales and the weather forecast wasn't great. Steak & Ale pie was a favourite with our car owners. I had Cod in Batter, chips and peas. Everybody seemed very happy in the inn. Everyone was very friendly, service was quick.... More

No atmosphere, empty pub and the food was dreadful, tasteless and also expensive. Would definitely NOT recommend it.

Situated just a few hundred metres off of the A40 in a very quiet valley area. This is apparently an AA Welsh pub of the year which offers hikers and tourists accommodation. Breakfast is substantial and will set you up for the day Accommodation is somewhat tired and dated but comfortable and somehow suited to the area and should be... More

We ate in the bar/restaurant that night and the food was delicious, home made pie for one and venison sausages for the other with potato and veg. It's was a delicious meal at a good... More

We spend a very enjoyable bank holiday here. The setting is lovely, with lots of nearby walks. Our room was clean and comfortable, with everything we needed, if a little dated. We requested a few things during our stay, for example having our blankets changed for duvets, and all our requests were dealt with quickly and efficiently. The breakfasts were... More

Booked a table for 8pm on Thursday night, there was us and another couple in the restaurant, one person drinking at the bar but don't let that put you off. We both ordered the mushroom starter wow, tasted delicious. For main we had rump steak got to be the best steak I've had in ages - definitely got no back.

We stopped there recently for two nights during a motorcycle tour. There is ample parking for the motorbikes. The staff were very friendly and let us into our room much earlier than advertised. The food we had was very good, I can recommend the steak in a whiskey and gorgonzola sauce. The meals are reasonably priced. The rooms were clean,... More

The Usk Inn seems to make no effort to market itself from the exterior. No menu outside, nothing to entice you in. However if you do venture in, it's nice for a drink in the oak-panelled bar. Food in the restaurant is good quality , we enjoyed it.

Thank Hmell
