  The Walnut Tree

  Llanddewi Skirrid, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire NP7 8AW


The Walnut Tree Restaurant sits on the B4521, two miles East of Abergavenny, and has been a famous inn and restaurant since it began in the early 1960’s. It is now run as a joint venture between Shaun Hill and William Griffiths. The Walnut Tree offers proper dining and drinking in an informal setting; for a glass of good wine with a plate of something, through to a full lunch or dinner!

The menu is an eclectic mix, based on personal taste and sound cooking techniques, rather than any particular country's cuisine. A unifying feature is a core of excellent ingredients, local where feasible and carefully chosen. No dress code or similar pomposity.


The tiny, picturesque village of C near Usk has been given a rare treat with the arrival of top chef, Matt Tebbutt. Returning to his homeland after eight years in London, Matt has transformed an old stationmaster’s house and former pub into one of Wales’ most exciting new restaurants. He brings with him a wealth of experience, having trained with many of the UK's leading chefs, from Marco Pierre White, to Alistair Little and Sally Clarke.

The Foxhunter has been completely refurbished by Matt and his wife Lisa. The couple have turned the old, Victorian pub into a stunning mix of original features and contemporary comfort. The informal setting combines Welsh flagstone floors and log-burning stoves with handmade furniture and crisp linen napkins. Clearly drawing on the influences of his celebrated mentors, Matt offers the very best of Modern British cooking, characterised by daily changing menus featuring local, organic ingredients and recipes which remain true to the flavours of fresh, seasonal ingredients.

  The Hardwick

Old Raglan Road, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire NP7 9AA


The Hardwick is a country pub which very much leans towards being a restaurant.

This is largely due to the owner, Stephen Terry, being a cook by nature and not a publican. The Hardwick is a place where everybody is made to feel welcome whether it be for a quick pint or meeting friends and family for lunch or dinner.

The aim at the Hardwick is for customers to leave feeling satisfied and that their expectations have not only been met but exceeded.

The philosophy is simple and honest. They source, cook and serve to the best of their abilities at all times. The produce is treated with the respect it deserves and served with the minimum of fuss and maximum of flavour. Seasonal produce is used which allows customers and staff alike to look forward to certain ingredients throughout the year.

You don’t need an ology in food to read and understand the menu at The Hardwick because it does what it says on the menu.
