TheMarketingblog Restaurant Reviews : The Foxhunter, Abergavenny: Bristol Foodie on tour.
Gemma writes .. This review isn’t strictly Bristol – but it’s less than an hour away and was the setting to a perfect anniversary weekend. More importantly, somewhere this good, this close by, deserves to be shared with you all!
Tucked away in a tiny hamlet called Nantyderry just between Abergavenny and Usk (45-50 minute drive from Bristol, map here). The Foxhunter is a beautiful gastro-pub with self catering accommodation. Their website doesn’t do it justice but hopefully my review will!
We arrived on Friday evening and were greeted by owners Matt and Lisa Tebbutt who showed us to our home for the weekend – a beautiful holiday cottage a few doors down from the pub. I’m not going to wax lyrical about the accommodation, after all this is a blog about food not travel, but it was wonderful. (Trip advisor review here).
Prices aren’t cheap but good value for the quality of food, service and surroundings. I think we paid about £150 per night for the cottage. Main courses were £20-£28, wine was from £18. Our nightly food bill came to between £100 and £120 for two/three courses each, a bottle of wine and aperitifs.
A truly perfect weekend. I’d recommend The Foxhunter to any couple of groups of friends looking for a bit of escapism without wanting to travel too far, similarly its close enough to drive out for Sunday roast or a lunchtime meal.
Despite its celebrity chef status – The Foxhunter was wonderfully relaxed – no pretense whatsoever, just excellent food. Lisa and Matt made us feel welcome and at ease, its one of the most relaxing breaks away I think we’ve ever had!
