Scenic views and great food

For centuries The Lamb & Flag has been a traditional coaching inn set at the foot of Sugar Loaf mountain. Situated at the gateway to the Brecon Beacons National Park, on the outskirts of the bustling market town of Abergavenny, it’s the perfect base for exploring the National Park and taking in the stunning views.

You can enjoy a stay with us all year round. The spectacular views from our conservatory are ideal to enjoy when you cosy up by the roaring log fire in the winter months. Savour some al-fresco drinks with friends in the summer on our outdoor terrace. 

We’re delighted to welcome families and offer a separate children’s menu along with our own children’s playground to keep the little ones occupied whilst you enjoy a meal and a drink.

We are well known and trusted amongst the local community and visitors, and serve breakfast daily. We also have a great range of coffee and cakes to choose from, ideal for after a long walk in the Beacons.

Famous for our quality grills and range of pub classics, our Cask Marque status and fine range of ales, you can be assured of a great dining experience with a family friendly atmosphere when you visit The Lamb & Flag.

If you’re into fine wines, why not visit one of the two great local vineyards; Sugarloaf Vineyards and White Castle Vineyards where you can enjoy some wine tasting and a tour of the vines. Alternatively, you could play a round of golf at Monmouthshire Golf Club or visit the historic castles at Raglan and Abergavenny.

We are also proud to offer a fantastic range of function and event packages to cater for all occasions. From formal, three course sit-down meals with arrival drinks, to an evening buffet with accompanying entertainment, we would love you to see what we have to offer.

The Cask Marque Award is an accreditation which guarantees guests the perfect pint of cask ale, every time. All the cask ales on sale are tested twice a year by a qualified assessor for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste and every beer must reach the required standard in order for the licensee to pass the inspection. Mystery visits may be carried out at any time and feedback is invited from the public.

Cask Marque is an independent, non-profit making organisation formed in 1998 with the aim of improving beer quality in British pubs through the accreditation scheme, training courses on cellar management and the setting of industry standards through a series of beer quality charters, including cellar management, glass-cleanliness and line cleaning.

Over 10,000 pubs hold the Award and each one participates in the ‘World’s Biggest Ale Trail’. This allows drinkers to scan the Cask Marque certificates in the pubs using their phone and the more scans they make, the more prizes they win. Download the CaskFinder App to join the fun!
