The Rock Country Pub & Taylors B&B

Stunning country inn with outstanding attention to detail. This historic hostelry was originally opened in 1808 and is nestled in the verdant Sirhowy Valley in Blackwood. Owners Paul and Jennifer Taylor, former winners of Enterprise Inns National Pub of the year offer a warm and unique Welsh Valleys welcome to you at The Rock.

This bed & breakfast accommodation consists of five double en-suite rooms which have all been individually designed to a very high standard with exceptional quality furnishings and a home from home comfort. 

The Rock offers an elegant, well stocked bar with a fantastic choice of real ales, a selection of wines and some old fashioned soft drinks which all catch the eye as you approach. The lunchtime and evening menu is comprehensive, predominantly fresh food based and locally sourced wherever possible, catering for both those on the move lunchtimes, as well as those who prefer to linger.
