This hotel-pub is full of character. As the training headquarters of the first successful Everest climbing expedition in 1953, it has a long history and remains a place for adventures to restore themselves. The food is praised for its heartiness and there’s a roaring fire.

You couldn’t ask for a more spectacular place to quench your thirst. Llanthony Priory is a small and quaint country inn, contrasting against the grandeur of the ruins of the original 12th-century Augustinian priory and the wild landscape in which it is found. You’ll find real ales are served in the vaulted under croft bar, homemade food in the dining area, and an open fire.
