The Anchor is a fairly large restaurant pub located by Tintern Abbey. It makes a good place to eat after the walk to the Devils Pulpit or a visit to the Abbey (or both). There is a good menu at reasonable prices with a nice friendly atmosphere which is cosmopolitan reflecting the many tourists visiting rather than all local folk (which can sometimes be intimidating for visitors).

Unlike the Misbah which has a more more modern menu the Raduni is a traditional indian restaurant that delivers flavours that are among the best we have tasted. Easy to find on the high street (Monnow Street) in Monmouth.
