We were grateful to find it open at 2.30 on a Friday. The landlady was welcoming to us and our wet dogs. That was very nice. We had a very refreshing drink. Two of us had fish and chips and two had chilli and chips. The meals were fine. The chips good! This pub needs to work on its toilets....

What a wonderful pub. We stopped in for Sunday lunch. Unpretentious homely Sunday lunch. There was no jus or any other nonsense just roast beef Yorkshire puddings etc... Beautiful views as we ate in the garden. Welcoming friendly helpful staff. Thoroughly recommended.

We pre-ordered our meal as we were a party of thirteen visiting this very traditional country pub on Sun 4th Sept . We were celebrating a birthday and the landlords Linda and Steve very kindly decorated their large dining room with banners and balloons. We had wonderful home cooked food and the meals were very reasonably priced. Linda and Steve...

Lovely meal, cooked fresh from order so some wait, but that's fair enough for good fresh food. Lovely cosy pub meal. Varied menu, very reasonable prices, garden at the back for warm days, warm and cosy inside for cooler times. Set amongst the mountains nice views, walking distance from llanthonny, popular with locals.

Whilst we were staying at Llanthony Priory, we chose to eat at The Half Moon pub after an extremely long day of walking Offa's Dyke. We chose to eat here as it looked from the outside to be a lovely country pub, just a few hundred yards from the Priory. The day had been so very long for us and...

Stopped of with some friends after a walk in the hills. Sun was out so it was time to sit in the beer garden. Good beer and great companions and all of a sudden we were all feeling the effects of drinking far to much beer. Had a few bowls of chips between the team which were good. The staff...

Your stay is made more enjoyable by the lovely couple who run this B&B. They really look after you. The pub has friendly locals and is very quaint and comfortable. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I have stayed at this B&B for many years. Now it is the best it has every been. Look forward to returning.

The Half Moon has changed hands since our last visit 2 years ago, but the welcome was just as warm. The owners go out of their way to make sure that everyone is well catered for. There was a television and on the night of our stay it was on - understandably as Wales were playing in the European cup...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Half Moon Hotel is set in a peaceful and secluded spot in the beautiful Black Mountains, part of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Next door to Llanthony Priory. The friendly 17th-century pub is an ideal base for walkers (we are not far from the Offas Dyke Path and on the beacons way path). We are also well situated to explore the Norman border castles, old churches and chapels of the Welsh borders. The small town of Abergavenny is 10 miles away. Hay-on-Wye 13 miles, Hereford 25 miles and Cardiff 40 miles. The Half Moon serves good food, real ales & tea & coffee, child friendly pub. We also have a beer garden for your use and dogs are welcome. Pony trekking is available close by and caters for all ages and abilities. The Half Moon is situated in an area designated as a dark sky at night location and is therefore ideal for stargazers and photographers. Our accommodation is basic due to the age of the building, but a warm welcome and good food and ale is offered to all our visitors. The Half Moon is currently undergoing a major refurbishment and therefore there is some disruption to normal service however we are working extremely hard to keep the disturbance to our guests to a minimum. Should you have any concerns regarding this please contact us ... more   less
