Very welcoming staff, lovely environment and a superb meal. Surely, it won't belong before this restaurant gets a mention in all the best food guides.

Will definitely book again. It was the most delicious food I have eaten in this area. The small plates provided a unique experience and value for money. Danielle and the waiting staff were relaxed and friendly.

Some of the best food and service I’ve experienced. How can cabbage taste so good?? We sat in the room nearest the kitchen and the lighting was nicer in the far room as it was a bit darker. Having said that we had a wonderful night, I just thought the far room looked a bit more romantic. I did notice that one of the seats in that room was very close to the toilet though. Can’t wait to return.

The best Sunday lunch I've had in a long, long time. We sat out in the courtyard and enjoyed the sunshine. We ordered 3 snacks between us as our starters and we both had the pork Sunday lunch which was incredible, full of flavour and delicious. We shared a strawberries and cream dessert to finish - very highly recommended.

The food was absolutely stunning. Disappointed I couldn't have my first or second choice as the meals had been sold out but my third choice was excellent anyway. We will definitely be back.

Just need to put a spring closer on the restroom door and tweak the service levels and it would be outstanding. As it is it’s very good

Maybe explain the dishes on the menu itself as they fancy names but the wait staff were running back and for to ask what exactly the dishes consisted of and noticed this for nearly all of the tables but food was delicious will be back for third visit.

The Gaff was recommended to me by my friend Kavita, who lives very near. I am so glad I listened to her! The Venue: Clean, bright, engaging. It blends a Scandinavian stripped back vibe with warm touches from paintings and beautiful carvings. The open kitchen is a treat and it also shows a willing transparency. The design of this place is so elegant, but welcoming and comfortable. Every single thing has been thought of with care, and attention to detail. People: Utterly professional, and very charming. The Food: Outstanding in every way. Everything has a light touch, and superb seasoning. Nothing yells or shouts, every single dish works along with every other dish. Home made bread, beautifully cooked fish, desserts with flavours that match each other perfectly. This menu has such care and thought, it's just a joy. Book soon, and enjoy!

Best overall dining experience we've had in Abergavenny district in 5 years, with exceptional food. Matching wines v good (we had the tasting menu with accompanying flights), except Pinot Noir with the duck was a little warm and one of us (controversialy) thought that a big Chardonnay might have been a better accompanyment. Good garden atmosphere marred by security lights flashing on and off every time a diner left a table - this is easily rectified. Charming and knowlegable staff added to the evening's pleasure. One waitress who served me before my wife quickly corrected this minor error. We're past proprietors of a five star boutique hotel in the Western Cape and will enthusiastically recommend The Gaff to allcomers as best in class here.

All four of us really enjoyed the evening. My “Mocktail” was very refreshing and had interesting flavours as did the meal itself. Only downside was I found the Apple Cake a bit dry and heavy. Loved the duck, chips,Bang Bang Cauliflower. Will visit again.
