    The experience, start to finish, was fantastic. We were welcomed with smiles and that set the standard for the rest of the evening. I have to be honest when my “The Works” sharing platter arrived I might have commented that it didn’t look a lot and I was very wrong! We didn’t actually finish it, however we did have a good try. My sons had the sharing burger platter, again out of this world. Only two of us managed to squeeze in dessert and again, we were not disappointed.

    Difficult to park as insufficient parking. Food was tasty but the knives would be better if steak knives as it was difficult to cut the meat. Was asked what sauces we would like but then had to request again as not all were bought over. Ambience was ok but at lunchtime didn’t lend itself to staying longer than the meal. Would we go again yes as the issues were minor and the food was tasty

    We celebrated Mother's Day at this restaurant but arrived to discover a very limited menu, i.e. only 3 different mains. Nobody took our coats so I had to find somewhere to hank them. My wife decided on a lamb flat break as she really does not like Sunday Dinners, when we ordered this we were then told that this item wasn't available. This should have been advised at the time the menu was handed to us. The staff seem to be very inexperienced, not warm and rushed us to order. We had to tell the staff to give us more than 5 minutes between courses. The whole meant (3 courses) took less than an hour. The food was good and the cocktail was very tasty. I had to go to the bar to ask for the bill as the staff where too busy chatting with each other to notice me requesting the bill. The staff definitely need some training. I'd recommend this restaurant to others as the food is good but maybe in a few months once they have trained their staff and worked on a wider menu. Please don't offer Sunday Dinner instead of your normal menu as there are plenty of other places to go for a Sunday Lunch. Maybe make a bit more of an effort for special occasions such as Mother's Day, for example, a glass of champagne for mothers. Just a bit lacking in certain areas.

    We arrived half an hour early to the restaurant but was seated straight away. We expected a little wait on service as we were so early so we wasn’t served until our original time. Drinks arrived straight away and food not long after. The food was incredible, we had ‘The works’ sharing platter which was very good value for money and more than enough for two people. The flavours were outstanding and presentation was very good. Lovely little restaurant with a great ambiance. Would highly recommend.

    A lovely meal in a lovely environment. A lovely warm welcome from the owners Andrew and Stephen. Shown through to our table into a lovely restaurant. Had a lovely warm environment with beautiful smells coming from the kitchen. Had beef cigars with garlic mayo to start and the works for main course which was ample to share between three. Apple pie and ice cream was very good. The crème brûlée was also very nice. All served in a timely manner by very welcoming staff! 10/10

    The food and service was excellent, my wife and I booked a Sunday lunch and it was brilliant we both had the same starting with Beef Cigars, main was the slow cooked Brisket and dessert was the deep fried Apple pie, the only downside was we were next to a table of six young ladies who were all talking at the same time so until they left it was rather noisy, we will go back to try out the main menu, we’ll worth a visit.

    The Sunday menu was great! Setting and seating goods (although my chair kept falling over backwards when I hung coat on the back of it 🤣. Service was prompt for both starters and main course. Cannot wait to come back to try menu on a weekday/Saturday. Even better if time giving between finishing mains and being offered desert menu was a little shorter 👍

    First time going. I followed on Instagram and the food looked beautiful. It didn’t disappoint when we went. The food was great and the service from the girls was excellent. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars overall is because we had a £50 gift card for Christmas. When we gave it in we were asked if it was paid for with cash or card and the name of the person who bought it for us. We gave the name of the person but they didn’t have that information. The filing system seemed to be a bunch of envelopes with names on them. We didn’t know if it had been paid for with cash or card because we don’t tend to ask that question when we are given a gift. In the end we had to call the person who bought it to ask for confirmation because we couldn’t use it without that. I’ve had gift cards for different restaurants and never had to prove it. Surely there is a better system than that.

    The Cantref has been transformed into Fire & Fork. I first visited The Cantref about 45 years ago and now it's gone all American BBQ. Nothing wrong with that though - look what the first ladies of BBQ have achieved through Hangfire. We stuck with the familiar territory of burgers and they were good - a couple of bacon cheeseburgers and the au poivre version. All very tasty and the fries were very good indeed. We found the little pot of sauce a touch sweet for our taste. It all works well, nicely busy for a lunch service and the servers were lovely. Something different for Abergavenny.

    Excellent food, excellent service. I expect parking may be an issue at busy times. Only one thing I would question and that is the time allocated to stay. One and a half hours for a table of 2, two hours for a table of three or more. I visited mid week and it was fairly quiet so service was quick. I would think that at busy times, service would be slightly slower, and a three course meal followed by a coffee would be hurried for two diners.

    Food and everything was perfect. The only thing that spoiled our visit was the confusion of staff when we gave her a voucher my MIL had purchased for us. The staff member couldn’t find our voucher and we were left standing at the counter whilst they tried to sort it out. We showed the receipt etc and the staff member even remembered signing etc for it. She should have taken our payment and then dealt with where she mislaid it. At one point another MOS said shall I ring someone? This made us feel uncomfortable and spoilt what was a lovely afternoon. Very unprofessional.
