A word from 1861 Restaurant
A foodie gem just outside Abergavveny in the picture postcard hamlet of Cross Ash, the 1861 Restaurant has caused quite a stir among Wales' gastronomic elite. Boasting two well deserved AA Rosettes, 1861 is the brainchild of chef Simon King and his wife, and front of house lead, Kate. Between them, Simon and Kate have several years experience in the restaurant business - and it really does show. Set in a beautiful old house complete with wood beams and original fireplaces, 1861 is welcoming and comfortable yet refined while service is of the very highest standard. The 1861 menu is produced using lovingly sourced ingredients produced nearby - often on neighbouring farms or at Kate's father's nursery - to ensure traceability and sustainability. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We received a warm welcome as soon as we walked through the door. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating and the restaurant itself was very comfortable and picturesque. Delicious food made from fresh locally sourced ingredients and from an extensive yet reasonably priced menu led to a fabulous meal. Looking forward to going back soon and would thoroughly recommend visiting."

  • "The food was really good, specially the deserts we have chosen a degustation plate with 5 mini desserts to share and was wonderful. I didn't rate the food as outstanding because I didn't like it too much the first dish that I choose (the venison), but the restaurant has 2 rosettes, and the rest of the food was really good."
