Out of the way but well worth going to. Excellent atmosphere, really good food and very friendly. It is obviously very popular and there is a good reason for that. Service was polite and quick despite it being full. Will go back there for sure.

We had a very warm welcome after being soaked in the rain whilst riding to the pub. The horses were hitched conveniently outside and rested whilst we enjoyed a couple fo glasses of wine and a bowl of soup and fabulous mixed meet PLoughmans. Excellent service.

Painscastle is a different place since Tony and his team took over The Roast Ox a couple of years ago. Tony makes sure you are well fed from the kitchen, Jason ensures you are well watered in the bar and Sydney the cat makes sure you are well mannered at all times. The food is excellent and servings are very... More

I very much enjoyed my two-night stay here. Nice surroundings, relaxing and peaceful. Perfect if you want some quiet time a fair bit away from town. Excellent food and atmosphere. The staff are friendly and approachable too. Hope to be back at some time in the future.

The breakfast the following morning was as good as the... More

We booked a 2.30pm slot for Sunday Lunch and although they were very busy with a large group, the service and the food was faultless, we will certainly be back for more. The selection of traditional ales was good too.

I was a part of a group of 4 riders on a 3 day Freerein Horse Riding Holiday. We were booked into the Roast Ox for our first night. As our holiday was at the end of October and was in a mountainous area of Wales, we were hoping for a friendly warm pub with good facilities and a nice... More

We booked via LateRooms.com the afternoon of our stay and were concerned when we eventually arrived via a long diversion at the Inn that they had no idea that a booking had been made with them ! We had booked a double room but were offered a twin which was the only room available to us, the room was acceptable... More
