I really liked the atmosphere of the Hardwick and the decor. There's a nice laid back feel with plenty of space. The restaurant is spread across two rooms which I also thought resulted in a calm atmosphere. We went for the three course £34 set...More

The menu offered far more variety than the typical Sunday roast lunch menu. Lots of unusual and interesting-sounding starters - with perhaps an over-reliance on anchovies, garlic and chilli. As for the food, the Yorkshire pudding was disappointingly overdone, but the generous dish of vegetables...More

Persuaded to re-visit by friends who'd read an article and wanted to try it but once again let down by slow service and inconsistencies across the courses, some good and some really not good which you wouldn't expect given its reputation and price point. Very...More

Visited for my daughter's 30th birthday. Really enjoyed the food. Had the belly pork and black pudding for starter, was delicious and had Merthyr pie for main which again was equally delicious. Can't fault the food taste but could have catered better for vegetarians. And...More

We’ve visited this place since we’ve been coming to Monmouthshire for weekends and find it consistently good. Only thing we feel needs improving is the bar area which is a little cavernous and lacks a fireplace /cosyness but you can’t have it all I suppose!...More

If you are expecting the White Swan, or the WhiteBrook down the road - then reset your expectations. Stephen Terry has decided to go large venue, 100+ covers (?), make a profit but not lose focus on TASTE. And you know what? Good on him....More

Went for a family meal and while it was OK it was really nothing like as good as a few years ago. Service was slow leading to issues such as one or two of the dishes not really being hot when they arrived. No better...More
