The Wye Valley is more than just one of Wales' most picturesque spots. It's also a first-class dining destination, and if you want to try some of the area's best restaurants, Monmouth is the place to be. With acclaimed British gastropubs in the neighbourhood, curry houses that are local institutions and top-quality tavernas all part of the mix, Quandoo's selection of Monmouth restaurants offers something for everyone.
One of the best things about dining out in the Wye Valley is the proliferation of places that serve local produce. The valley is famous for its fruit and vegetable production (and cider, too), and places like the Whitebrook or Restaurant 1861 know how to turn those raw ingredients into sumptuous feasts. If you want a Sunday lunch that soars above the competition, or regional classics like Welsh rarebit prepared with meticulous care, these elite Monmouth restaurants can't be bettered. And, if you need a venue for a special occasion, you won't lack for options.
Having praised Monmouth's British restaurants to the heavens, it's just not fair to leave out all of the town's other fantastic eating options. For a small market town, there's actually quite a lot going on in the Monmouth restaurants scene. For instance, Indian eateries like Jewel Balti on Drybridge Street offer cuisine from southern India that will delight even the most jaded curry lovers. Or you could whizz down to Chepstow, where delectable Greek food is available from tavernas like Mythos. Although the scenery may be classically British, there's a cosmopolitan range of places to eat in the Wye Valley.
And you can also explore slightly more distant dining options. When you've already tried everywhere within a five mile radius of Monmouth, the restaurants of Newport, Gloucester or Cheltenham are not that far away, and all of them are great places to eat out. Push the boat out at luxury brasseries like Chelsea Bar in Gloucester, or discover affordable eats of an amazingly high quality in Newport. Whether you choose restaurants in Monmouth or elsewhere, Quandoo lets you book meals in seconds.
