Impromptu decision to go out for Sunday Lunch, called about 11:00 and booked a table for 14:00, we have driven past the place many times and it has always appeared busy, and wondered what it would be like, so we were looking forward to enjoying the experience. Parking can be a bit of a pain, but... read more

My daughter and her partner had been trekking on Pen Y Fan, and rang to see if we wanted to meet up for lunch - "Somewhere local"? We hadn't been to the Tai'r Bull, although we'd passed it many times, and often mentioned calling in. She rang me at 12.30 on a Sunday - a beautiful Spring day, when tourists... More

We booked lunch for a group of 16 adults on New Year's Eve. We had a warm and friendly welcome from the landlord and his staff and had a few drinks before we were shown into the restaurant. We had pre-ordered our lunch which consisted of steak and chips, lamb shank and mash, fish and chips, pie and chips etc,... More
