“Good pub food with nice views and good walking” – all are amongst the attractions of this friendly country pub in the Wye Valley. The menu focuses on meat, and there’s also a tasting option (although it’s an extended traditional meal rather than much in the way of small-plates frippery).

Have you eaten at Inn at Penallt?

Owner's description

The Inn at Penallt is a 17th Century traditional country Inn located in the Wye Valley with spectacular views of the Forest of Dean.

The Inn was acquired by Chris & Bronwyn Boston in January 2016 after they realised that the Inn was an exceptional destination venue. The Inn had already secured a fantastic reputation as a ‘foodie retreat’ and we see huge potential to build on and expand the Inn’s offerings.

The recent appointment of our excellent head chef, Kevin Lee, provides a fresh approach to the Inns' a la carte menu, set lunch menus, light snacks and bespoke vegan/vegetarian menu’s whilst focusing and supporting local farmers who rear rare pedigree beef and pork, as well other local producers such as artisan bread suppliers. We also have strong beliefs in paying a little more for quality produce from local producers. In addition to this, we are developing the Inns kitchen garden and in collaboration with the Gwent Wildlife Trust, there will be future direct access for guests to the Trusts summer wild flower meadows. Bronwyn is also working with the non-profit organisation ‘Art in Penallt’ to show case work from leading local artists at the Inn.

The bar has a relaxed atmosphere with a wood burning open fire, a cosy restaurant and a well-balanced wine list of over 75 options including white and sparkling wines from local Monmouthshire vineyards. The Inn welcomes walkers, cyclists and classic car and bike enthusiasts and also have dedicated dog friendly accommodation and bar.
