About the Pub

Picturesque early 18th century inn taking its name from the village in which it sits 'Pont Hir' meaning 'Long Bridge'. Inside are several cosy connecting rooms with low beams and some exposed stonework. Two similar sized rooms are either side of the central serving area with one being an extension to the main dining room. Another short counter faces towards the public bar area that has a darts board. Pictures of local scenes populate the walls. Food is very popular here and therefore a good part of the premises is given over to dining at peak times. The menu offers a range of popular dishes including grills and traditional favourite main courses. Wednesday is curry night and there are tempting lunchtime deals from Tuesday to Friday. The dining room features a local map with inset depictions of Caerleon, Monnow Bridge (Monmouth), Pontnewydd, and Llanthony Priory Gatehouse. Of added interest are a framed copy of the front page of the Usk Observer and Raglan Herald dated Saturday 7 July 1855, plus a framed set of pictures capturing the history of the former Star Brick & Tile Works that once stood nearby.
