Good Hotel Guide Review
In a ‘postcard-worthy scene’ of a 17th-century coaching inn by the stone bridge over the River Monnow, Guide inspectors in 2016 found a ‘friendly’, ‘personable’ spot, where owners Richard Ireton and Sarah Hudson are ‘clearly invested in ensuring guests have a good time’. ‘A jolly innkeeper, Richard greeted us at dinner, poured our drinks at the bar, and went round to chat at all the tables.’ The bedrooms have been ‘intelligently redecorated to suit contemporary tastes’. ‘Ours, in the eaves, had exposed beams, metal-framed beds, cream carpeting over creaky floors. In the bathroom, a freestanding bathtub overlooked green countryside.’ Come dinnertime, enjoy Joseph Colman’s ‘generous’ portions of ‘refined pub grub’. ‘We loved rabbit three ways – confit leg, stuffed loin and pie – a hearty dish that sent us to bed happy.’ (‘The piped pop music, though, was at odds with the atmosphere.’) Wake to a ‘very good’ breakfast ‘overlooking the garden sloping into the hedges and hills’. A buffet holds home-made muesli and local yogurt; ‘thick country toast and home-made berry jam’ are served at table. (GC, and others)
