Just a short jaunt from Celtic Manor Resort, the inimitable Newbridge on Usk brings together historic charm and refi ned modern British dining. The restaurant and boutique hotel is housed in a 200-year-old countryside hideaway on the banks of the River Usk, surrounded by lush countryside.

The beamed ceilings, exposed brick and comfortable furnishings make the Newbridge on Usk an undeniably cosy spot, but large windows open out onto a stylish al fresco terrace, and look out onto the river; as a result, the restaurant is bright, airy and refi ned. The terrace is an ideal spot for afternoon tea in the sunshine, and there are plenty of cosy corners if you’re visiting in winter. Upstairs, you’ll find a more secluded dining area – accessed by a spiral staircase – that seems perfect for larger groups and special events.

Having taken in the elegant decor and decided that we absolutely must return for a weekend stay in one of the beautiful boutique rooms, we moved to our table. Browsing the menu meant tearing our eyes away from the idyllic riverside views, but the delectable offering soon drew us in – no wonder they’ve been awarded two AA rosettes. We started proceedings with freshly baked miniature loaves of bread and complementary butter, before sharing a starter of slow-cooked chipotle octopus. The dish was presented like a work of art, and the flavours were sublime. My husband selected the roasted lamb rump and slow-cooked breast for his main course. This tantalisingly tender dish was accompanied by wild garlic, quinoa and shallots, and was simply wonderful. My main course was hearty and comforting without being heavy – a fi llet of hake was topped with scallops and clams. Once that had been presented, a wonderfully thick leek and potato soup was added to the dish, with a rich cheese toastie on the side. It’s the sort of dish I dream of on rainy days. To round things off, I enjoyed a chocolate delice with smoked nuts and salted clotted cream ice cream, while my husband devoured the Newbridge apple crumble, featuring textures of apple with custard and honey oats.

After our meal we picked up a map and set off to explore the surrounding countryside on foot. With striking views, a picture-perfect setting and some of the finest modern British cuisine around, Newbridge on Usk ticks every box. We can’t wait to return.
