SquareMeal Review of The Bell at Skenfrith

Set snug beneath green hills, this immaculate gastropub is country cosiness personified – a feast of wood beams & flagstones, with a blazing fire thrown in for good measure. Food-wise, the organic kitchen garden provides a plentiful harvest, & the surrounding countryside yields up the rest – the landlord shoots game as well as being master of the magnificent wine list. The kitchen has shifted up a gear of late, turning out a snappy, sophisticated mix of classic & traditional dishes. Stylish starters include Bath chap & ham hock terrine with parsley purée & truffle dressing, while mains strike a fulsome note – maybe pheasant with pommes Anna, cabbage & glazed carrots or local venison with celeriac purée & a pink peppercorn jus. Side orders of ‘posh mash’ keep things pubby, as do comforting desserts such as toffee apple crumble – but this is about as classy as a pub can be.

Really disappointed by our family dinner there on 31st May. It was planned as a very special occasion but the service was very slow, all the staff were unfriendly and the food was certainly not of a high enough standard to justify the price. Our goat's cheese starter was especially unpleasant. We all felt unwelcome and didn't complain because we all felt that the staff just didn't care. Won't be going back.
