Have visited the stables on many occasions and it never fails to impress. The meat is bought locally and cooked to perfection. Declan is a gentleman and nothing is too much trouble. Even though the deco is basic the service and food make up for it. Well worth a visit.

The food was wonderful and we couldn't find fault with any of it .Declan was very happy to take some photos and even stood on a chair to do so. Mum and Aunt (2 nonagenarians) had coffee... More

Fantastic find, tucked away in Dowlais. A little underwhelming from the outside and very basic inside. But as soon as your given the owner's firm handshake on arrival you know you've chosen the right place. He felt like our very own butler and should probably run his own school for classy hospitality. As for food, your looking at meat and... More

Our second visit to this lovely restaurant, to celebraye Fathets Day, and we will be visiting again! The service we received was outstanding from the moment we arrived to the end of the evening and throughout. The food was delicious, and everything was cooked to perfection, there was no scrimping on portion sizes at all! The gluten free options were... More

Where do I start. Went here for our anniversary meal and what an end to the day it was. We had a mixed grill (which wasn't on the menu) and braised beef. Both were faultless-struggled to pick the beef up as it was falling apart. Drinks were superb, wish I wasn't driving. The host was brilliant, never felt more welcome... More

The best restaurant in Merthyr for delicious quality food cooked to perfection Declan is a wonderful host and is happy to help at all times - we have been on many many occasions and one of our friends has allergies and Declan goes to the trouble of accomodating her every time. Wonderful little restaurant
