Recommend me a lunch stop - Monmouth
« on: September 17, 2019, 01:31:04 pm »
Whenever I have controlled there before, I have just dipped into Greggs or Waitrose and carried on my way.

I'm leading a ride for 5 people on Saturday with Monmouth as the halfway point. Anyone know of a decent cafe/pub with space to sling bicycles?

Cheers

Henry's Cafe seems to ring a bell. In or just off the market square.

I don't know how far off route Raglan Castle would be for you, but there's quite a nice cafe there.

It is, actually. But it's about 10km too early to be really useful. Same with Tintern, The Filling Station there is a safe bet.

Thanks for the info Cudzoziemiec. Henrys' does look gone, but several other options in that twee courtyard.

FYI - in case this topic gets searched.

That courtyard now has 4x eateries.

Henrys has become Valeries but looks like a 'high tea' and doily kinda joint.
Opposite is 'The Oxford Coffee Co'. I ate here, good sarnies, not cheap and not quick.
There was another cafe accross from that and a burger place that i couldn't tell if it was open or not.

Anyway, that courtyard was a very welcome oasis of calm from the traffic/market carnage in the main drag.
