The Mad Platter Micro Bar and Kitchen offers casual dining in the heart of Usk Town.

Having recently been taken over by the previous owner last October, partners Christos Kyriakidis and Polly Langford with the pair putting their
own stamp on the business.

Christos is a multi-award-winning mixologist, whose skill and knowledge behind the bar is second to none, so you can expect first class cocktails and exceptional spirits from around the world.

Cocktails are priced from £7 each, or you can enjoy a platter of six cocktails for £18.

The menu is simple, allowing the chefs to focus on high quality fresh ingredients that are sourced from local suppliers and producers, where they create delicious sharing platters for two people or more, ranging from a selection of meticulously made espresso cocktails to fabulous charcuterie meat platters.

Every Monday evening it’s mussels’ night, where you can enjoy a delicious pot of Welsh mussels (with a different sauce each week) and any drink for £15 per person.

Also, you can take advantage of its Wine Wednesday offer, where you can get a bottle of house wine with a meat and cheese platter for two priced at £25. There is also live music every Wednesday, with Jim Ramsey being the resident musician.

Thursday is Gin Club, where if you’re a member you get an exclusive discount on all gins throughout the year and a complimentary gin when you join and also at Christmas. There are more than 80 to choose from and the first five to taste them all, have a chance to win an exclusive trip to a UK distillery, to have a tour and make their own gin!

Also, if you pick up a loyalty card and collect eight stamps, your next drink is on the house.

If you’re planning a special occasion or event, the venue can comfortably accommodate up to 60 guests, where special bespoke menus can be created – call for more details.

So, if you’re visiting Usk this spring, make sure you pop in and sample the fine food and drink that’s on offer. The restaurant is extremely popular, especially on weekends, so booking in advance is advisable.
