The rooms were a delight. Tastefully decorated, modern decor and up to the minute gadgets. The telly was a bonus! We were a group of 6 who had 3 rooms so had a good look at all the rooms. The double with the bath in the room was a real surprise. The room next door was cosy as a twin... More

Booked in for one night and have to say, this easily beats the average run-of-the-mill pub accommodations. Small, but really great room with Mac computer and a separate large flat screen tv. All very nicely furnished and clean. The bathroom was stunning .... butler sink, tv over the bath, rainshower, etc. Ample parking at the back in a pay and... More

Room was quiet (no noise from bar) comfortable and well equipped. Location convenient for our foray into Cardiff (Dr Who + Karl Jenkins concert), Llandaff Cathedral (must see!!) is close walking distance. Stayed 2 nights, had evening meal in the bar one night (excellent), breakfast very good both mornings.

This really is excellent good quality accommodation a couple of miles from the centre of Cardiff. Situated on Cardiff Road this pub offers just 5 top quality rooms with ample parking at the rear but get a voucher for free parking from the bar as it's a pay & display car park if not a resident. The rooms are well... More

Have been here several times and have not been disappointed on any occasion at any time of the day. Friendly staff and good quality food makes this pub high on the list of places to eat in Cardiff and well worth a visit whether you are a local or a visitor to the area.

Popped in for something to eat before attending the Llandaff Cardiff Ghost Walk. We were attended to by the bubbly and friendly Olivia. As we were in a hurry - we had less than an hour to get to the ghost walk - we impressed upon Olivia that speed was of the essence. I'm happy to report that the three... More

A traditional pub serving excellent food. The batter on my fresh haddock was divine - the best I've ever tasted. The busy restaurant, on two levels, is very popular with locals and no wonder! The refurbished rooms with tasteful décor are modern, clean and comfortable, and well-appointed. You can watch TV in the bath but it's not compulsory! Very friendly... More

Did not stay but had a great time with friends at the restaurant in November. It seemed to suit all types of customer from the beer drinker to those in family or friends' groups who were in party mode. Very friendly and helpful staff so keep it up please. We have re-booked for our annual Xmas bash so will re-review... More

We stayed the night after a business trip nearby. Room not huge, but we were only there one night, but very comfortable and well equipt with a TV in the bathroom to watch from the bath! Don't have that at home. Dinner and breakfast first rate. Staff friendly and efficient. Will happily stay again.
