Cripple Creek Inn, is where we met fellow VT'er and husband for lunch on our trip to Wale's.
When Barbara suggested the Inn, I was very happy, as I had read her review and it sounded excellent.
We found the Inn very easily, and parked in their carpark, and then went inside. We were the 1st to arrive, and were shown to a lovely window table.
Having time to view the inside, I thought it was lovely, and it had a great atmosphere!
There were quite a few people here already.
John and Barbara arrived, and we chose our meal's, then ordered some drinks. It wasn't long before the meal's arrived, we mostly ordered different, and all of us were very happy with our meal.
Dessert, and the two girl's ordered Pavlova, and this would be the BEST pavlova I've ever had.
Light, and delicious!
In all this time, more people kept coming, and soon the Inn was full, so I would advise booking a table, as it looks to be very well known with the Local's.
If we lived here, we definitely would be back!
Just 14miles from Chepstow.

This restaurant and take away is situsted off the main road and near the gateway. There are a few tables for those wanting to sit and eat. Takeaway is in strong cardboard boxes .
Fish dishes cost around £4.50.
Favorite Dish: Fried haddock. It is amazingly good and the chips are thick, none of the thin 'French fries'.
Not the castle itself, but a local pub just opposite the Castle.
We stopped here for lunch on Friday, 29 April 2011, the day of the Royal Wedding. A number of locals were inside enjoying a celebration of the wedding and waiting for the balcony moment in one section of the bar. We seated ourselves in the lower section, near the entrance.
The menu offered a selection of pies, as well as a small number of other options.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the Moo Pie, which was served with mash potatoes and mushy peas - it was a delicious steak pie! Others enjoyed the Royal Wedding special and the fish pie, all of which were enjoyed.
The Castle inn is an attractive building in a great position, right opposite the Castle in Chepstow (hence the name I suppose!!) Inside you will see some great stone walls, fireplaces and arches. We called in for a drink - I ended up being persuaded to have a cake too!! The food on the menu looked really good and I can wholeheartedly recommend the Bara Brith, it was delicious. I really liked this place, it was cosy and relaxing.
Favorite Dish: The Bara brith was delicious, the other cakes sounded great too!!
This lovely pub is opposite the Castle car park and is a must if you visit Chepstow. It looks nice from the outside and it's fantastic on the inside. friendly service, great beer and some lovely food on offer in this lovely Old pub that dates from 1791.
We had a few drinks in here as it was so relaxing and welcoming. Even the pub dog (Barney) was great and quite a little character.
Although the only food we had was some Bara Brith i would love to call back and eat here as the food on offer looked fantastic and they serve the now famous Minister pies.
We called into this great looking Inn on a recent visit to Chepstow. We had only gone in for a drink which was a good job as the Kitchen is closed at the moment but it does sound good.
The pub is open from 10:00 to midnight but they will start earlier for those that have to be up early in the morning for work (details are on the breakfast loyalty card). Food is normaly served all day and starts from £3.
Everything is homemade, 90% of it on the premises and 70% of all produce they use comes from within a 15 mile radius.
It has a great old fashioned exterior that really gives it that Ye Olde Inn feel. The interior is spacious but in need of some decoration. There are 2 large areas near the bar and other rooms in a maze like interior. there is a nice beer garden that over looks the castle.
The food in here is delicious if a little expensive,rumour has it that Tom Jones tried to ge in without booking and the husband of the owner turned him away,apparently she went crazy.Bit of a Tom Jones fan I'll fancy..
I would recommend booking to avoid disappointment,its worth the money.
Favorite Dish: Fillet Steak in a wine sauce ,mmmmmmmm
The interior in this pub is very olde worlde,the odd stuffed fox, lots of brasses on the walls,but not overly done.
Large roaring fire in the winter makes a lovely welcome.
Favorite Dish: Mixed grill,lots of meat and a good price,it went very well with a few real ales.
Lovely pub just past Tintern,about 5 minutes from Tintern Abbey,on The River Wye,Just sitting outside enjoying a pub lunch and a few cold beers and just watch the world go by.....Great !!
