Went here on a quiet Friday night for a meal with my girlfriend, when entering the pub there was a few locals in the pub around the bar, we went to the bar ordered drinks and said that we had a table booked. The waitress showed us to the table right next to the bar where the locals were congregated... More

Had to write this review as we have stayed at this lovely b and b/pub/restaurant a number of times now and each time has been the best experience. The rooms are lovely, quirky and polished. The staff are approachable, friendly and work hard. The Sunday lunches are to die for. We ate as a family (4 adults, 1 child and... More

Pleasant, quiet & relaxing surroundings. My Only criticism is it's possibly not accessible for a person with disabilities. Offers a very good selection of food. The staff are helpful and the meal was Splendid. This comes Recommended.

We visited the Halfway House on Saturday 20 December where we met up with my Sister and Brother-in-law for a pre-Christmas meal. What a delight - the barmaid/waitress was very friendly and quite happy to wait until all four of us were ready to order (not an easy task, as there were so many tasty dishes to choose from), and...

I visited the halfway with family members to find the menu very over priced, however we decided to give it a go as we thought we would get a good quality meal for our money! However after paying £11 for a wrap and chips, they had no wraps and I had about 8 chips on my plate! I would not... More

We stayed for two nights whilst house hunting in the local area, so booked it as a convenient base and had no expectations. However what we found was a gem of a b & b. Bedroom was basic but clean and functional, breakfast was good and satisfying. The gem in this b & b are the staff, they are so... More

After previously visiting here with family for Sunday lunch (which was lovely), Me and my partner wanted to stop somewhere cosy for a glass of wine and food. We had a lovely evening and the food was very tasty ! Will be returning to this cosy pub again.

Myself & 4 sisters took a drive to find somewhere for lunch on a Sunday. We came across this inn & decided it was the place. The restaurant was packed, fully booked actually. The staff were great & asked if we could wait so they could check with the chef & arrange a table. We did & it was well... More

Always wanted to visit this pub after riding past it a number of times on bike rides through Sirhowy Country park and today (my birthday) I finally got my chance. My partner and our two kids treated ourselves to Sunday lunch after a family bike ride and the food was very enjoyable. We sat outside as we didn't have a... More
