Hi, I’m Simon King, the chef and co-owner of Restaurant 1861, a gourmet restaurant in the beautiful Monmouthshire countryside, with my wife Kate.
You’ll dine in style at Restaurant 1861 because we select the best of fabulous local produce, cook it to perfection, and present it to you with a delicate and imaginative touch.
I learned my culinary skills in some of the best restaurants in the UK, and now I give you a gourmet experience in our lovely rural location near Abergavenny.
Voted one of the best restaurants in Wales in a recent poll, Restaurant 1861 has a sophisticated ambience with friendly, attentive, and highly professional service led by Kate, who is an experienced hospitality professional and event co-ordinator.
Open for lunch (Wednesdays to Sundays from 12pm) and dinner (Wednesdays to Saturdays from 7pm), our delicious dishes are created from fine seasonal produce, so our menus change with the seasons. We offer Sunday lunches, three-course set meals, a la carte dining, and a seven-course tasting menu.
