Parva Farmhouse is a 17th Century former farmhouse set just 50 yards from the banks of the River Wye, less than a mile from the historic Tintern Abbey.
It has been a guesthouse for some years and built up a loyal following. Now with new owners, Marta and Roger Brook, it is a proper restaurant as well.
The Brooks were restaurant manager and head chef at the Walnut Tree near Abergavenny, and central to its success over the past 10 years, with lots of awards, rosettes and suchlike. Both had successful careers previously. Roger worked with previous owners of the Walnut Tree, Franco Taruschio and Stephen Terry, as well as the decade with Shaun Hill.
The Farmhouse rooms here are already a success and hopefully the restaurant will shortly follow suit. Too early for major reviews. Next year perhaps.
The food is the big change. Decent ingredients, skilfully cooked and served to a consistent high standard. The menu, like the dining room, is small. Our aim is quality food and wines, that offer value too. MORE ABOUT DINNER.
Enjoy our riverside and woodland walks, the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean, or just watch the river go by in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The farmhouse is on the Wye Valley Path, which passes through the churchyard next door and along the riverbank.
We offer a simple ‘Honesty Bar’.
Essentially there is a choice of red and white wines, and sparkling (by the bottle). Plus brandy, gin, vodka, rum, whisky, port, beer, and soft drinks. With an ice bucket stocked with plenty of ice.
