Great Pub Grub at a Great Price!

A lovely warm welcome can be expected from the Hobby Horse, children very welcome. Proper pub grub at a great price. The pork roast dinner is my favourite!

Great service, fantastic food but the children that pack the place sometimes is shocking. I go there for a quiet meal not listen to playground noise. The last thing i want to hear when eating is a sqwaking child.

Called in on the off chance for a table and was accommodated very quickly. Staff were lovely and the pub meal was on a good standard. Sunday lunch is also a good meal.

A nice hidden gem in Brynmawr! Very pleasant atmosphere and a warm welcome. I booked a table before a visit to the local cinema and it's well worth booking as it was filling up quite quickly. The food was delicious and you could tell it was home cooked. Can highly recommend the Hobby Horse pie! My partner had a burger... More
