Wether you want a meal, snack or just a drink or three the nags head is a great old pub that is certainly worth a visit.
It was built before 1765 and retains some great features. We called in for a drink while walking around the town following the Trail.
We called in the Robin Hood for a drink but the food looked lovely so it is quite high up on my list of places to visit again.
It is the Oldest Pub in Monmouth and dates from around 1385, it is a grade II listed building and very Olde worlde with it's low beamed ceilings.
There is no shortage of eating places in Monmouth and all tastes and occasions ae catered for.
If you are looking for a simple cafe, serving light meals and snacks this is an ideal place to stop. There is an indoor eating area for cool days and tables and chairs in the shady courtyard in front.
We had very tasty tuna mayonnaise sandwiches on wholemeals bread, a salad garnish with a delicious mustard dressing - £4.25, and an excellent pot of tea - £1.25 . £5.50 not bad for a saisfying lunchtime snack these days.
At similar reasonable prices hot soup of the day, smoked salmon salad, and a variety of sandwiches were also available.
The Historical Blue wall Plaque (which can be seen to the Left of the door )
commemorates the fact that, in 1840, when the leaders of the Chartist uprising were being tried in Shire Hall around the corner, the 12th Lancers commandeered the surrounding properties and all road in to the town were guarded.
On our brief visit to Wales, we stopped into the cute town of Monmouth looking for some lunch.
We chose the Robin Hood Inn, and settled down in the busy, cosy dining room for some Sunday grub.
It had a real homely atmosphere, and was filled with locals having their Sunday Roast!
Favorite Dish: We ate a delicious Welsh Stew and a tasty Steak & Ale Pie...the chips were tasty too
Had a half pint of the local lager as well...wasn't really to my taste, but when in Rome!
