Lunch at The Coach House
18th March 2013

The welcome at the Coach House makes us feel at home immediately.  After a hard morning in the office we are both in need of a decent lunch to keep us going through the afternoon. We have certainly come to the right place.

It is hard to choose because we actually want everything on the menu, salmon fish cakes, thai chicken curry, baked ham and parsley sauce, there’s a great selection but we settle on pork and mushroom stroganoff with rice at £6.95 and welsh beef and ale pie with a selection of vegetables at £7.95. There’s a wide range of soft drinks for those wanting a clear head in the afternoon but there is also a good selection of alcoholic drinks should you wish to indulge.

The service is friendly and at the right pace, you don’t feel rushed but equally you don’t have to wait too long for your lunch. The stroganoff hits the spot, a tasty smooth sauce with plenty of pork and mushrooms, a decent portion of rice and salad on the side.  My companion’s beef pie is delicious, rich and full of meat with very flaky pastry. All the meat and vegetables are local, as owner Derek Harrhy believes strongly in buying British or even better, Welsh. We look at the pudding menu and decided to share a brownie, it is a massive portion and goes down very well with our chocolate laden cappuccinos.

We also enjoy looking at the local art that hangs in the restaurant and the bliss of having a proper lunch hour with home cooked food leaves us happily full and ready to tackle anything.

If you haven’t ever been to the Coach House I would recommend it. At present you can get a free pudding Tuesday to Friday worth £3.95 when you print off the voucher, see offer on Best of Monmouth website. Closed Mondays.  Call  01600 775517 to book.
