Relax in style

The Punch House is a Grade II listed building situated in Agincourt Square. Officially called the Punch House in 1896, it was initially a coaching inn called The Wine Vaults and records indicate that the pub was in existence as far back as 1769.

In keeping with our history, we offer a traditional pub experience with a great range of drinks and a menu of pub classics. If its relaxation and a catch up with friends then you’ll feel right at home with us, and with 11 en-suite bedrooms you will never want to leave.


Located in the centre of Monmouth, there are plenty of things to see and do when you are visiting the Punch House. Some of our favourites include; wine tasting at Ancre Hill Estate winery, a round of golf at The Celtic Manor Resort, watching an action packed performance at the Savoy Theatre and walking up Kymin hill and taking in the beautiful views of the Black Mountains.

Cask Marque accredited

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!
