Fox & Hounds, Risca

An afternoon out in the South Wales Valleys and on the way back popped into the Fox & Hounds in Risca. Set overlooking the village green and not far from the Monmouthshire canal, the Fox & Hounds features local cider, Blaengawney, on draught and bottles as well as beers from far away. Bottled ciders from Gwynt y Ddraig are also available. The beer today is from the Wooden Hand Brewery and is the 4.3% Buccaneer, a not too bad deep golden coloured ale. Quite a good little boozer, the Fox & Hounds is a popular pub that features live bands as well as darts and pool and a good jukebox with rock track popular on the playlist. Next beer on is RCH Steam Harvest.

It's been years since I've been there. Good times were had, and a jolly good game of pool was played there too. One day I'll have to come back home to the Newport area and go on a S. Wales pub crawl.
