About Us

Located at 6 Nevill St, we are a traditional cook shop at the heart of Abergavenny.

For the absolute beginner and the seasoned professional, the shop has all sorts of treasures.

 Jonathan Bensley, started his career, in the family business as the chef, in what was formally known as the Horse and Jockey, now known as The Hardwick, then went on with his wife, Anne, to The Charthouse, and finally the Plas Derwen.

In 1988 they decided on a change of direction, and opened up a specialist cook shop, in the busy market town of Abergavenny. Cooks Galley began life in Cross Street, then after a couple of moves, is now in Nevill Street.

In 2011, Jonathan and Anne's daughter, Sophie, joined Cooks Galley full time. In March 2020 Sophie took over the family business, which still stocks the specialist items which Cooks Galley is known for, as well as some homeware items too!

So if there’s something you need, do not hesitate to contact us!
