At Lydbrook is the Courtfield Arms. At the time of writing under new management so we have little feedback but it is a nice Pub by the River.

The kings head in Monmouth is a Wetherspoons pub serving traditional food and good value


Severn Seas in Monmouth, is at the top of the high street, on the right. Good Fish and chip restaurant and take away. Severn Seas is also in Ross-on-Wye. Close to Misbah Indian  


Indian restaurants

Cinnamon in Coleford is a good Indian restaurant / takeaway opposite Tram Stop Fish and Chip shop.. Similar menu to the Misbah below but not quite as polished –but very good!


For a slightly more up market restaurant ideal for a special occasion we would recommend the  Misbah in Monmouth recently voted best in S.Wales by the Good curry guide. At the top of the high street, 300m after “Iceland” supermarket, The Misbah is on the right. It is advisable to Book and if you go on a Thursday night and mention you want the banquet deal you get a great meal for £9.95.(NOTE you can not get the deal if you don’t Book). Tel 01600 714940



Moco Mexican Restaurant Monmouth  very good value lunches North American customers advise this is good Tex Mex



The Boat Inn at Redbrook is one place that everyone should visit. While they serve basic pub food it’s the location that draws people here. The car park is by the River Wye in England and you will need to cross the  old railway bridge to get to the pub in Wales. Cider was the traditional beverage around here, rather than beer, and is kept in barrels behind the bar although there are a selection of real beers to go with the 16 or so ciders. Well worth a visit  tel 01600 712 615
