Some of the best coffee we've tasted, real chocolate on the cappuccino too!


The thai green chicken panini was delicious as was their homemade coffee cake!


Fab range of paninis and sandwiches using local suppliers, alongside breakfast favourites and a wide range of homemade cakes and tray-bakes - the carrot cake is a favourite of ours alongside their delicious coffee


Cappuccino (£3.00), tea (£2.00), cakes/traybakes (from £2.00), paninis (from £4.95), sandwiches (from £4.50)


There's a dedicated peleton bike rack out front so you can keep an eye out on your prized possession


Plenty of room both inside and out on the sheltered terrace or rear seating area for cycling groups. It does get busy at weekends (especially Sunday mornings) but turnaround is quick and the atmosphere is wonderful


Tintern is located beside the stunning River Wye and close to the border with England, 5 miles north of Chepstow. Just a stones throw from the ruined Tintern Abbey, the Filling Station cafe makes an ideal pitstop for exploring the quiet and scenic roads within the Wye Valley

A cycling club favourite from riders both near and far, the cafe is just a stones throw from the spectacular Cistercian Tintern Abbey and on the banks of the River Wye. Family run, cycle friendly, delicious freshly ground coffee, scrumptious homemade cakes, tasty filled baguettes, breakfasts or paninis, it’s all here.

The owners (Lou and Vin) are avid cyclists themselves, where inside you’ll find all sorts of signed cycling paraphernalia alongside a most welcome log burner for those cooler winter rides. Out front there’s a large undercover terraced seating area and peleton bike racking area, perfect for soaking up the early morning sun. Out back there’s also another seating area too. The shop keeps a range of cycling spares should you come into difficulty on a ride and will do anything to help stranded cyclists.

As for food, if you’re looking for something savoury there’s a wide range of reasonably priced paninis and sandwiches using locally sourced ingredients – including cheese, alongside breakfast baps and toast of course. For those with a sweet tooth, cakes include a delicious homemade carrot, coffee or lemon cake, millionaire shortbread, rocky road, freshly baked scones, Danish pastries and the cyclist staple, flapjack.

The cafe also operates a new ice cream shop directly across the road, serving up the very tastsy Sidoli’s Icecream made in Ebbw Vale, South Wales.
