Close to the English border, this attractive hotel – sibling to the well-known Walnut Tree – is a versatile spot, where chef Wesley Hammond turns out high-quality food (including a “great choice for veggies and vegans”) in the clubby Foxhunter Bar or more elegant Oak Room. Head to the Wedgwood Room for their “amazing”, award-winning afternoon teas featuring “exceptional gluten-free savoury pastries” (“liked the doggy bag for the extra cakes later”).

This attractive and smartly refurbished town-centre hotel – sibling to the famous Walnut Tree – is “a lovely place to go either with family or on your own”. The dining options – in the Oak Room or more casual Foxhunter bar – display “really good quality” from chef Wesley Hammond, while afternoon tea is popular too.

Handy for Abergavenny Castle, a polished and “superior hotel” with a stately dining room and also incorporating a “fabulous” ‘Foxhunters’ dining bar. “High quality ingredients” star in the “always consistent” meals, while afternoon tea here is something of a legend.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
