The area is famed for its gastronomy. We have the Abergavenny Food Festival every September, and numerous other food festivals and fairs throughout the year, several Michelin starred restaurants, and wonderful farm shops, cafes, caterers, even an award winning vineyard and distillery. If you're on a budget, we've got very productive hedgerows! Book a foraging walk with the renowned author Adele Nozedar to get an understanding of the wealth of delights in our hedgerows and gardens. Whether you want to eat, or drink, in or out, it'll be delicious!
