Really good find

We had to go into Aberystwyth to pick up my son from the train station who was joining us on holiday. We needed a dog friendly pub that served good food and found the Druid Inn. They have 3 tables in the bar area that they let dog owners sit at though it's worth booking just in case. The food... read more

Recommended by locals so decided to visit for my birthday meal. Booked ahead but not always necessary (mobile number 07870517356 if no answer on pub landline). Had Rump Steak for £16, Gammon Steak £11 and the most wonderful Fish pie for less than a tenner. All home made. The Steak was tender & perfectly cooked. All food is cooked to... More

I have made several visits to this pub and every time have been met with a warm welcome from the staff and the locals. The food has always been excellent and is very good value for money. The only problem is deciding what to have!

Visited with family for meal and few drinks. Great little pub. Food was excellent. Great quality and more than you can eat. Really recommend stopping here. Warm fire in the bar, matched by the warm welcome from the staff.

We came here for a "date night" after reading reviews on here. Was quiet but it is only a small restaurant. Menu was good quality and everything we had was really lovely. Cheesecake was possibly one of the best i had ever tasted. We were served by a young boy who was so sweet and polite and i made sure... More

It's some years since we last went to the Druid. We live just quarter of a mile away but the dangerous section of the A44 and the steepness of our hill has been a deterrent to walking there. However, today, a friend invited us to lunch there and we drove down; one of us staying on lemonade. The quality and... More

The Druid Inn in Goginan is a truly magnificent hostelry. Lewis and his team have won several awards for their first class real ales and the home-made cuisine is second to none. There is also a very comfortable B&B next door which is run by the owner, John. In these days of "canned" distractions such as TV, it is refreshing... More

This is a traditional village pub which has deservedly earned a good name locally for its cuisine. I was there with family members on Sunday - being Sul y Mamau ( Mothers' Sunday), and the meal was delicious, and served without unwarranted delay; the topside of beef was, I understand, locally sourced, and very tender.

A great pub. The food is excellent, freshly cooked, local and very well presented, but at a reasonable price. This pub also has great local character and always has a good range of beers. This is what pubs should be like
