Review on The Stonemill
People have been known to motor from the Midlands to Monmouth for a meal at this converted sixteenth-century cider mill, set in landscaped gardens with self-catering cottages nearby. The restaurant itself - in a stone-walled, high-raftered barn - makes a suitably bucolic setting for food with bags of up-front flavour.
Rack of Welsh lamb with artichokes and spring onion ragoût is a regular favourite, likewise poached chicken with purple sprouting broccoli and roasted beetroot (vegetables are taken very seriously). Elsewhere, you might notice fillet of hake with Welsh rarebit on a warm tomato salad or roast suckling pig with rosemary and garlic wedges. Desserts leapfrog between the UK (sticky toffee pudding) and Italy (warm compote of fruits with Mascarpone cream).
At lunchtime, you can a range of lighter dishes; service regularly gets rave reviews, and the wine list offers great value across the board.
