We stopped at this place by chance, and were pleasantly surprised. We are both vegetarian and usually struggle but were able to get a very nice Sunday roast dinner. We had but roast, vege gravy, all sorts or fresh veg and creamed leeks as well. Lovely and we highly recommend this place.

Okay, so it's only November but a group of us booked the special Christmas dinner menu last night. Absolutely superb !

One of the best pubs I've been to in a long time, the food was excellent, the service friendly and the interior of the pub was superb. Well worth a visit. The only trouble we had was finding the place, it's tucked away in the middle of nowhere

My girlfriend and I visited The Raven Inn on Saturday night as guests of a couple who live in the village. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the beer was cool and welcoming and the food was fantastic. I can't recommend the Raven highly enough...even if the TV was showing Australia beat England in the Rugby World Cup. A cracking... More

It’s particularly gratifying when someone from outside the area lets us know how much they have enjoyed themselves here at the Raven Inn. We try to stay impartial when it comes to international sport but we must admit that many of our Welsh community thought it was a G’day when the Ozzies were victorious. More

We have visited here a few times now and I have to say that the food has always been excellent. There is usually a wait but this is because it is freshly prepared and you can realise this when you taste it. Service has always been good and I don't mind a wait at the bar because the staff are...
