About the Pub

Sometimes quoted as the third most haunted inn in Wales, this old 16th century freehouse was once home to Monmouth Fine Ales back in the 1980s. During the Civil War it was reputed to be a regular haunt of Oliver Cromwell during his campaign hereabouts and there is a story where an assassination attempt was foiled with a Cavailer being shot in the bar. The spacious front bar has a partly leather clad ceiling believed to date from those times. It was acquired from a pub company in May 2013 to become a free house. Live gigs are held every Sunday and Wednesday evenings at 8.45pm, and occasionally on Thursdays.
