Should have tried the Old Ferrie Inne, a few doors down - my family ran it for about 10 years.

Seems like a great friendly pub with an impressive menu. I had the wild mushroom and saffron lasagne – served as is – for £12.95 – and while very nice, i was a little annoyed to find that it had been microwaved, with a pint of cider costing nearly £4.00 !!!
So in summary – nice, but sadly not great value at all.
This is great pub, good food a little expensive though, great place to go for a good days walk its right on the edge of the Forest of Dean, or if you so desire you can keep on going all the way to the historic town of Monmouth by following the old rail track and passing the swing bridge over the river Wye along the way, but make sure you take your walking boots with you, as its about a ten mile round trip.

this is a lovely pub and having stayed in its accommodation a few times i can tell you that too is really nice. the rooms can be a little quirky as some of the floors slope a little as do the walls, but its old so what else can you expect. the beds are comfy and the bedding and rooms very clean. breakfast is substantial and
the evening meals here are really delicious and there is usually a few vegetarian alternatives. the beer is super and im not even a beer drinker but they sell one called wye valley which i really recommend.
take your drink and sit outside and watch the river flow on a summers evening & i promise you, its just one step from heaven!

This is a great pub right on the river Wye at the ferry crossing. There are tables and chairs outside, which is a fantastic place to sit in the sun and watch all that is going on along the river.
The food has always been good here, either sat in the bar or in the restaurant at the back, or they will bring your meal outside.
In the summer there is an ice cream kiosk outside, and the place does get busy, but we've always managed to get a seat, and it is a great place to take friends who are visiting.
A pub very dependent on tourist trade and due to it’s stunning location - it us often very busy throughout the summer - food just ok - as a local there is no strong pull to visit - real ale is good apparently - not my tipple - no great lager to be found.

This could and should be a really good pub. A 16th century inn nestled in a beautiful valley with 5 decent ales on tap - what’s not to like?
It’s just a bit weird really. The management are bizarre. When we arrived they closed the bar for 20 minutes to clean the floor, and the staff just stood around and didn’t say anything, not at all interested in chatting to the customers. They’ve cramped the bar area with seating and a stupid phone box right in the way, and the toilets look like they came out of a hotel - really weird marble sinks, totally out of place.
On the plus side, Old Peculiar, and Wye Valley Hereford Pale Ale on draft does make up for most sins, but if we weren’t a captive audience, we wouldn’t have stayed here.
