Sunday Lunch at its best

The food is absolutely fabulous, try the roast lamb lunch and it comes with real gravy. The sort your mother used to make. Superb dining room and a really good Bar. They also have rooms to stay in, a board room and cater for private parties. All in all, a real find and worth a visit.

I work in catering at a gastro pub, and in corporate hospitality for American Express. I can not speak highly enough of the superb cuisine, friendly service and excellent value that I was given at the Penylan Restaurant. There is certainly a warm welcome and very good value at this gem of a boutique hotel in the centre of Merthyr... More

Small restaurant/guest house in a converted terrace house just outside the town centre. Staff very helpful and friendly, decent range of options on the menu, food well presented, well cooked and in decent portions, nice atmosphere, fair prices and range at the bar. We were a group of hungry cyclists who had booked in advance. You may have to work... More
