The Garway Moon Inn is a busy privately-owned 18th Century free house and country inn situated overlooking Garway Common - this is the place to eat, drink and relax in an informal environment which welcomes muddy boots, kids and dogs! The bed and breakfast accommodation is located above the bar and has three beautiful en suite rooms all newly renovated to a very high standard.
Whilst staying with us you will also enjoy traditional pub food that is homemade with quality ingredients sourced from surrounding farms together with a good selection of local real ales, ciders and wine.
From the 12th to the 16th centuries the manor of Garway was owned by the Knights Templars and the Knights Hospitallers. It is likely that there has been an Inn at some location in Garway since the arrival of the Knights Templar. However, we believe that the Moon originated as a farm building in the early 18th centuary with the farmer turning his hand to cider making to supplement his income.
Garway is in a beautiful setting on a south-facing slope of the Monnow valley in Herefordshire.
We overlook 23 acres of common land, with Wales and the Black Mountains in the background.
First and foremost the objective of most people staying with us is to relax. The setting is untouched by major tourism, noise pollution or any significant modern infrastructure. We are surrounded by large farming communities and, as such, visitors can really enjoy a countryside that is fast disappearing across most of the UK.
There are many activities that you can partake in whilst staying with us. They include outdoor pursuits such as rock climbing, golf, fishing and shooting or visiting places such as the Golden Valley and Brecon Beacons. Other local attractions also include the Herefordshire Cider Route and local Food Festivals such as Hereford, Ludlow or Abergavenny.
