How Green Was Wye Valley (With apologies to Richard Llewellyn)
If you are visiting the Wye Valley, you will find stunning views wherever you go. The outside seating area of the Rose & Crown, Tintern is no exception. Overlooking the river, you can eat and drink while taking in the views, if you are lucky, our local otters or perhaps even a seal will put in an appearance.
Hills, fields and vineyards surround our pub, and you can see the old railway bridge that used to carry the products from Tintern's iron works back in the days of steam.
The next thing downriver from there is Tintern Abbey, a world famous ruin from the Dissolution of the Monasteries under Henry VIII. Everywhere around here you will find history, from civil war sites to shipbuilding levees.
It is not hard to see why this is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Come and look for yourself. Better still, stay a while, sit overlooking the river and enjoy local beer and food with great service and a great welcome.
