The Abergavenny Arms
Haven’t been here for years then twice in one week, great place, the staff are welcoming and friendly, doing a great job, and food was really great. Some really nice wines on the menu and at a respectable price.
Definitely will be returning again soon and would highly recommend, thank you.
Valentines night and not easy for any kitchen but they absolutely smashed it. Recommend the Abergavenny to anyone. 😃😃
The roast beef with potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and veg were to die for, especially as I was supplied with the lashings of Horseradish sauce that I asked for! The pub was packed, so great atmosphere, attentive staff and will definitely return
A really pleasant experience - the food was delicious and excellent service. Thank you
Last minute booking to come here for Sunday night supper and we were not disappointed. Boys all went for roasts - beef, pork and chicken and clean plates all round. I opted for fish and chips - light and fluffy batter and gorgeous chips. Glad we found some room for desserts though - calvados parfait with Granny Smith sorbet was wonderful - could have had a second!
Great food, staff and setting. Never fails to deliver. Fully recommend.
The recommendation will be conditioned.
There was a noticeable difference from the previous visits. The meal was okay but not memorable.
We will certainly return in the hope that this visit was a one off.
The set lunch is excellent value and the food was lovely. We did have to wait rather a long time before food arrived, but we weren't in a hurry so it didn't matter too much.
Having eaten a few roast lunches in various pubs in Sussex and Kent over the past few years, this was the best I have ever had! The meat was delicious, vegetables well cooked and so enjoyable. The staff were really excellent and attentive. Will be back!
Thank you so much for your kind review. We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your experience, and hope to see you again soon! Many thanks, The Abergavenny Arms Team
Good Food and pleasant staff. An enjoyable evening.
Food very good, good service both polite and efficient. Very good menu with good selection
The food took over an hour to come out which is not great when you have toddlers to feed.
We were also put in the middle of the pub and felt a bit in the way as were surrounded by dogs getting up every 5 seconds. Went home hungry and skint !
Great service, very friendly pub, good ambiance , lovely setting - went for Sunday lunch with family , beef and chicken roasts were both very good , pork roast sadly wasn’t the best, but overall a good meal with a very attentive and friendly staff. Would go back for normal menu.
We popped in for a Sunday lunch. Never been there before but we will certainly be going back. The food we had was excellent- roast beef which was a chunk of meat more like a steak in size but very tender and melted in your mouth With no chewing required. Great Yorkshire puddings and you can order extra for 50p each (which we did). Even all the vegetables were cooked nice - we hate soggy overcooked veg but no they were all good. Would recommend you trying it like we did. I’m sure you will be equally pleasantly surprised. Some good food is needed in the area some thumbs up to the chef 👍
Christmas generational get together
Service very very slow. I’ll not go again for this sole reason
Superb value for money, excellent cuisine, wonderful ambience and fantastic service would highly recommend as first class wonderful evening out
Great spot, great food. Family friendly and awesome staff.
Friendly service as usual. The sausage and mash were thought to be not quite big enough despite being very tasty,
The pub was beautifully decorated and felt very cosy. There was an impressive selection of food on offer, all our meals were delicious. The service was slow, but all staff members were friendly.
Great service, but the vegan burger needs some attention. It was luke warm and tasteless. In fairness when I pointed it out they took it off the bill.
The other meals were great; pork cheek and fish and chips
We’ll be back soon
Excellent menu with great service
Lovely venue for a family Christmas meal
As we are becoming regulars, the level of service and cuisine remains consistent and very much appreciated. Thank you for the recognition!
Great venue, great service, great times. My family all had a wonderful time.
Food was lovely although our pie portions were quite small. Service as usual great - lovely staff. Lighting slightly too bright. No log fire!!
Food was not up to standard and I won't be going again.
Yes definitely. Our fourth time there in a year. Didn't have polite service for the first time but may have just been a busy day and people stressed.
Food was lovely, very busy and popular pub; leading to rather confused service with lots of different people serving our table with only some able to take food and drink orders meaning they had to go and get colleagues for order etc.
The quality of the food, the service and surroundings were all outstanding. The only slight negative was that my son ordered the venison and he felt that the portion size was very small for it’s £19 price tag. However, the meal was to celebrate my birthday and it did not disappoint.
The actual pub is lovely, but the food is really not great, very on trend menu, but the food wasn’t cooked all that well in my opinion, the soup was not nice and not very warm, the cauliflower steak was not nice at all. And it was all very overpriced for what it was. I won’t be returning.
We ate mussels to start followed by venison and the meal was delicious.
Really is an excellent pub. Food and service very good with a very nice choice of wines by the glass and a lovely atmosphere.
Great food with great service. We use this establishment on a regular basis and it never disappoints. The staff are always very friendly and welcoming and the food is excellent. A good choice of ales and very comfortable interiors. Highly recommended.
Great food, fabulous ambience and restaurant. Certainly recommended.
Beautifully decorated with Christmas decorations for a family get together lunch.
Service was excellent. Staff friendly & helpful. Service charge added as there was 15 of us. I wanted to add more but was outvoted but not because of anything to do with the service.
We had a very happy early Christmas girly gathering, and the service was first class. We queried some of the dishes and our waitress was extremely knowledgeable. The dishes were beautifully presented and very tasty. A slight comment would be a larger portion, definitely include potato with the roast pork.
Great venue. Friendly staff and fantastic food. Obviously an amazing chef.
We went to the Abergavenny Arms for Sunday lunch. We all four had roast dinners. The food was very tasty but the portions could have been slightly larger. Sadly, the real failure was the quality of the service. We were told from the outset that they were one server down. However the remaining staff, although very friendly, seemed unable to prioritise correctly and their serving technique was not great. Finally, one of my real bugbears, we had to wait an inordinate amount of time for the bill after we asked for it. It could have been so much better.
Yet another incredible dinner - well recognised by the team creating for a very relaxed evening!
