Pwllmeyric is a small village in Monmouthshire, Walesmarker, located 1 mile south west of Chepstowmarker, on the A48 road within the parish of Mathernmarker.

The name Pwllmeyric means, in Welsh, "Meurig's pool", and refers to the pwll or creek of the Severn estuary which, before it silted up, linked the village to the sea. It was named for Meurig ap Tewdrig, king of the early Welshmarker kingdoms of Gwentmarker and Glywysingmarker in the 5th or 6th century, who buried his father Tewdrig (St. Theodoric) at Mathern.

The village is the presumed birthplace of Wales international football Eddie Parris, and the childhood home of rock musician Grant Nicholas. It is the location of Chepstow Garden Centre and a pub, the New Inn.
