"We made a trip from Caridff to Tintern Abbey today which was great. When we finished we were a bit peckish & decided to get some lunch. The pubs opposite the Abbey was very busy so we decided to drive further down the road to look for something. We came across The Sloop Inn. Out came my phone to check... "
"Wonderful room with a fantastic view. Service & food was marvellousm, thank yo."
"This review is of the restaurant, not the accommodations.
The restaurant at Tintern Abbey was closed when we were visiting so we went in search of food elsewhere. Luckily we ended up at The Sloop Inn. We were traveling with our dog and one of the things we were looking for was a place that would welcome her too. It was a chilly day so a place that would allow us to be inside and warm while we enjoyed our meal was most appealing.
The decor is fairly plain. It appears to be more a pub that serves food than a restaurant. Don't let that put you off. I didn't harbor high hopes that the food would be all that great. I was VERY pleasantly surprised. The menu is small but they also have daily specials. Every dish we ordered was fantastic.
From our one visit I can highly recommend the Burgers - piled high with onion rings and served with hand cut chunky chips, the gammon and eggs, the lasagna and stuffed chicken breast with mushroom sauce and chips. The onion rings and chips at this restaurant/pub are what every other establishment should strive for!
The Sloop offers great value for a quality home cooked meal. We look forward to visiting again on our next visit to Wales. "
"Lovely stay - V. nice burgers!"
"Brilliant food and all the staff and locals are really friendly. Thank you all!!"
Jacqui & Martin, Chipping Sodbury
"We visited the pub twice whilst staying in a nearby cottage over the weekend.
The pub is dog friendly, dogs are allowed in the bar area (not in the lounge) but the bar area is spacious, comfortable and you can also eat in there. There is also a nice spacious beer garden, with patio & benches and a grassy area.
The owners and locals were warm and friendly. Talked to us about the area, where we were staying etc.
We had a couple of drinks in there on a Saturday afternoon and then went back for dinner in the evening. Menu is varied and good old fashioned pub grub, but cooked very well. i.e surf and turf, hunters chicken, steak etc.
We both enjoyed our meals and the prices were reasonable. If in the area we would certainly return again for a drink or some food. "

Craig & Laura, Bristol
"ust got back from 3 nights at the Sloop Inn and can report on a good weekend. Peter and his staff made us very welcome and the food was really excellent in all respects. Our room was a little tired and old fashioned but in some way that added to the charm of the Inn. There was plenty of very hot water and the facilities perfectly adequate, if not luxurious and the stay was good value.
The location and surrounding area is stunningly beautiful and there is lots to see if you like the outdoors and particularly walking/exploring. The Sloop is right on the river and there is easy access to all the main beauty spots and historic sights etc. Good PUB accommodation in cracking location, if you want the Ritz go somewhere else but take a bigger wallet. "
John F, Little Brington
"This is a big Thank You for looking after our party of 25 so well on Saturday 23 December. The room was ideal, service excellent and warm welcome very much appreciated. The children were free to roam and the food and drink put all of in exactly the right frame of mind to enjoy Clearwell Caves later that day. A very Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year to 'The Family Sloop'. "

"We had a weekend at a cottage near the Sloop in so ate there a couple of times of that weekend.
The first time we sampled the chilli, it was lovely. The accompanying rice was also very good.
The second time I had the lamb shank with mash and veg.. Absolutely beautiful! The others had steak and that was lovely too, cooked very well and great portions.
Would highly recommend the food here. "

"Have eaten here on and off for more than 20 years, third time under the new owners. Food is very good quality, with 'proper' sized portions, at great prices. Children's menu has a lot of choice, although their portions were so big my two couldn't finish them! Very friendly service too. Can't wait to go back! "
"Lovely view from the sofa. Great food. The dragon pie will power me all the way up Offa's Dyke. Thank you"

"We were at a conference at the weekend, so I stayed one night and my Mother stayed the next night. Very spacious and comfy twin room, large bathroom, telly and remarkably quiet. Even for a Friday night, all the locals had gone by 11! Very friendly staff and we ate an evening meal which was huge portions and reasonable prices.... "
