Good food but overpriced

I have been there with my girlfriend a few month ago. I decided to go for the burger and she had the salmon. The burger was ok but you can have almost the same in every other pub for half of the price. The salmon was well cooked but a bit under flavoured.

Great find for dinner one night whilst we were in Wales. Group of six, including one vegan and they easily accommodated us. Food was lovely, offering 'Welsh' options as well as more well known things. Quality and size of portions good and well priced. Also an extensive drinks selection. We sat by a pretty gas fire and I thoroughly enjoyed... More

I always like to try local food and when our waitress suggested Lamb Cawl (Pronounced Cowal) from the specials board I gave it a try. This turned out to be Lamb Casserole, served in a bowl, and very tasty too. We stayed in two pub / restaurants in South Wales and I have to say the standard of fare served... More

I ate the fillet of pork and it was nicely cooked , being tender and served in a tasty sauce with fresh vegetables. The staff were professional and pleasant. The bar... More

5 of us went here for lunch on New Years Day, we had booked in advance. We had a lovely meal but service was extremely slow, so slow that we didn't have time for dessert so they lost out on a sale. It did not seem over busy but we had to wait so long for the table to be... More

I'd say this rather uninspiring place is not terribly good value for money. Met for a a family reunion there but found it a very chilly atmosphere on a late December evening.
