Friendly pub with grub and great value

Called in here today and had a light lunch. Excellent value for money and whilst not fine dining, it was very good pub grub. Recommended

Came for a two course Christmas lunch with the South Wales Long Distance Walkers Association. £10 for a massive turkey dinner with four veg, boiled and roast potatoes followed by Christmas pudding. Great atmosphere. Friendly barman who gave samples of beers to drink prior to buying. Can't fault the place to be honest for what I paid.

My family and I often go to the hobby horse for food and it is always great! Proper pub grub! Lovely atmosphere too. Okay the interior could do with a little updating but whether the interior is updated or not it wont affect the high standard of food which is always served whenever we go. My boyfriend and I very...

Three of us ordered lunch today at what used to be one of our favourite pub restaurants locally.
