About the Pub

An ancient coaching inn, thought to be the oldest in Wales, built in the late 16th century that once stood adjacent to a town gate; note the fine royal coat of arms of Charles II dated 1660 on the outside wall. This was one of the last pubs in Abergavenny to brew its own beer in house. In 1862 the pub and brewhouse were bought by Thomas Delafield and it became the home of Delafield's Brewery. It later became the tap for the local Tudor Brewery for a while before that business relocated. A refurbishment in July 2007 saw the bar relocated to its present position but the interior is largely unchanged, with whitewashed walls, flagstone floor and oak beams, although an additional spacious back bar cum function room with new toilet facilities was created. One corner of the bar has a "All you need is love" theme to remind of the old Beatles song. Live bands perform on Friday & saturday evenings while there is an open mic night every other Thursday. In addition to the regular menu, a keenly priced early bird menu is available from 5-7pm. There are two patios for outside drinking, one on the premises, and one opposite the entrance on the other side of the road. Public parking spaces are nearby.
