We are a family business. Situated

not too far from Cardiff, We are well situated on the edge of the Forest of Dean, close to the River Severn and River Wye valley. Alvington is half a mile from the banks of the River Severn but just down the road from historic town of Chepstow, with its racecourse, golf resort, exciting nightlife and famous castle
at the foot of the Wye Valley.
We have a cribbage team meets at the pub every other Tuesday, and a pigeon racing group meeting every Thursday. We have a pool table.
