Just a few minutes' drive from Abergavenny you'll find the multi-award-winning public house, bar and inn, The Clytha Arms.

Surprised the review barely mentioned the beer here - the Clytha is a regular in the CAMRA guides and has won Country Pub of the Year (or somesuch category) several times. A great selection of real ales, very well kept, and good rotation of guest beers including some very unusual ones.
The food is very high quality indeed, if a little pricey (you get what you pay for!). Worth pointing out too that it is often very busy at weekends - for instance the Cider and Cheese festivals are worth getting there VERY early for.
