Situated just across the Severn from Bristol, Chepstow is sometime known as the gateway to Wales. Today it is perhaps best known for its horse racing meets at Chepstow racecourse but its important position on the banks of the River Wye was recognised as long ago as 1067, when William the Conqueror commissioned the castle that is now the oldest remaining stone castle in England. Visitors come to walk the Wales Coast Path and explore the beautiful Wye Valley, while, increasingly, the reputation of Chepstow restaurants draws in a foodie crowd. Whether you're enjoying a day at the races or simply admiring the handsome architecture of the town centre, make your day complete with a visit to one of Chepstow's excellent restaurants.
Monmouthshire is known as the food capital of Wales and you can understand why when you enjoy the fabulous local produce. The quality of lamb is well known but local pork is also exceptional and seafood from the nearby coast enriches many a Monmouth menu. Chepstow restaurants run from the most exclusive fine dining establishments to traditional old inns serving up hearty pub grub, so you can experience the fine food of Wales no matter what mood you're in.
We do love the traditional dishes of Wales but if you're in the mood for something a little different, then head for one of the continental restaurants in Chepstow. Mythos is a prime example. This popular taverna brings the delights of the Aegean to South Wales, with some expertly cooked classic Greek dishes. Starters include a delicious grilled octopus, marinated in olive oil and lime, then tossed in Greek mountain oregano and garlic. A main of lamb cutlets marinated for 24 hours, meanwhile, raises a simple dish to a whole new level.
If you're planning a night out there are plenty of restaurants in Chepstow that will provide the perfect venue. Child-friendly restaurants are ideal for those family gatherings, while your date will love one of the town's romantic little bistros. Kick back with your crowd in one of the town centre's stylish cafe bars or head out into the country to discover some atmospheric old inns. You'll find a great selection of Chepstow restaurants here on Quandoo so be sure to book yourself a great night out.
