The Foxhunter Bar is named after the champion show jumping horse 'Foxhunter' who was ridden by jockey Sir Harry Llewellyn. The pair won Britain's only gold medal at the 1952 summer olympics and were part of the show jumping team at the 1948 olympics. Foxhunter and Llewellyn won the King George V Gold Cup three times (in 1948, 1950, and 1953) and they also won 78 international competitions during their joint career. Foxhunter is buried on the Blorenge mountain between Abergavenny and Blaenavon and Sir Harry's ashes are also scattered around this site. In the bar, you will find several pictures of them both and we have even named our Angel Ale 'Sir Harry' in honour of the pair.
The premier den for Abergavenny locals, you will find regulars and visitors enjoying the bar's old world feel with a modern twist - and a blend of contemporary art. There are local ales and ciders on offer and for the more adventurous, the cocktail menu features both classic cocktails and Angel originals - The Hendricks, Manhattan and Cosmopolitan to name but a few. The Foxhunter Bar provides comfortable, stylish surroundings which you will want to revisit again and again.
