With fantastic views over Wentwood in South Wales and a classic design of clean white with black beams, The Groes Wen Inn in Penhow is the ideal country pub. It serves traditional and well-loved pub food, either inside by the cosy log-fire or in the al fresco garden to enjoy the view. Formerly a charming cottage, the eclectic furnishings and squashy sofas aid the feeling of hospitality.
Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Groes Wen Inn menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Groes Wen Inn ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.
Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.
While in the peaceful country village of Penhow, The Groes Wen Inn is merely 14 minutes’ drive from Newport.

On arrival we were ushered straight to our table without having time to buy drinks at the bar. We ordered drinks at the table, but when they had not arrived after 20 minutes, I reminded the waitress who then brought them. I would add that neither the restaurant nor the bar were anywhere near full, so I doubt the delay was due to pressure of work.
My meal (roast turkey) and another guests meal (beef) were both disappointing. The portion sizes were small, and whatever gravy was on the food was poured presumably in the kitchen and no gravy boat was served on the table. The volume of gravy was insufficient, so the meal was extremely, and I mean extremely, dry. This premises is only four miles from my home, but I shall not return.

The staff were very pleasant ,but out of four meals ,two were awful both hunters chicken. We were offered for them to be replaced,but we declined because our husbands had nearly finished their meals.( 1 half a chicken &1fishcake )When we paid the bill they had deducted one hunters chicken,but it spoils the evening

Despite being extremely busy the waitress made sure we were served as soon as possible and she was un phased by the large number of your group (14)
The meal was of excellent quality and we felt very welcome
