“The Wye Valley setting is remote and peaceful” at Chris & Kirsty Harrod’s restaurant-with-rooms, which is again enthusiastically endorsed for its “fascinating (I had to ask about the ingredients, many of which seem to have been foraged or grown locally) cooking with a stunning level of skill, care and attention going into every plate”, plus “interesting wine pairings” and “informed and professional service”. In October 2019 the couple purchased the freehold, with plans to up the degree of luxury and number of rooms.

“Top chef, outstanding food, a great fine dining experience”: Great British Menu chef, Chris Harrod continues to inspire high acclaim at this stylish restaurant-with-rooms in the Wye Valley, with his “Noma-esque” cuisine. “Vaut le détour!”.

“In the middle of the lush Wye valley” (“no mobile reception here”), this long acclaimed “foodie gem” regained its star shortly after the arrival of chef/proprietor Chris Harrod in 2013 (and lost ‘The Crown’ from its name shortly after). Fans proclaim the “locally sourced and foraged” cuisine “unique” (“Noma in Britain!”) with the “added benefit of eight comfy rooms to sleep it off”.

“Tucked away in the Monmouthshire countryside”, Chris Harrod’s long-famous inn (he dropped ‘The Crown’ from its name in recent times) is “not the easiest place to find, but worth the effort”. “It’s ordinary-looking from the outside, but evidently older once you get in”, and the food is “superb, with subtle flavours that are utterly delicious”. “Along with its craft ales and fine wines, it’s a perfect bolt-hole after a busy week – pure comfort for the soul!”

"The degree of care and attention take through the entire service was excellent, the pairing of unusal herbs grown or forridged nearby made for a challenginh and thought provoking lunch experience tucked away in the middle third of the Wye Valley. If you have to pass nearby book a table,in fact just book anyway."

"The only option for dinner was a tasting menu, which was not a problem as that is what we would have chosen anyway. First class food with interesting wine pairings."
