About Us

Situated in Monmouthshire, in the heart of the picturesque Wye Valley, South Wales. The Lion Inn is a well established and extremely popular public house.

Built in the late 16th Century, actually completed in 1580, The Lion Inn was originally a coaching inn, brew house and pig farm. Many of the original features of the brewing cellar still remain, as do a number of outhouses that were used as pig sty’s.

The Lion Inn is the only traditional inn in the ancient village of Trellech. It consists of two rooms, both with open fires and exposed wooden beams. One room is used as a traditional village bar, the other as a restaurant area.

The pub stocks a fine range of real ales and ciders, as well as the traditional range of keg Lager, Bitters, Ciders, Guiness and Spirits including a large range of whiskies, Gins and Rums.

The whole emphasis of the pub is towards the traditional – Traditional Beers, Real Ciders, Quality Home Made Food and a Friendly atmosphere.

The Lion Inn Cottage was originally an Elizabethan stone pig cot.

The cottage has been tastefully decorated in a traditional country style and can sleep a family of four. The open plan room is enhanced by skylights and contains a double bed and double sofa bed.

The luxurious marble tiled bathroom contains a spacious shower unit. The fully equipped compact kitchen has been made to measure and boasts a traditional Belfast sink, double hob, microwave and refrigerator. Central heating (supplied by new slim-line storage heaters) and a carpeted floor ensure the cottage is cosy all year around.

To the front of the cottage a walled patio ensures privacy and is a sun trap during warmer weather. A welcome pack is available and packed lunches can be provided at a small cost, if requested.
