Not as good

Three of us went here for an evening meal. We ordered 3 starters, which were ok, but they brought them out at different times. We ordered more drinks, but the cider pump had run out and there was no one to change the barrel for over half an hour, and then we had to wait for a bottle of Malibu... read more

I have long found restaurants in Brains pubs around Cardiff and as far as St David's to be the best food, reliable quality and value for money to be found. This pub/restaurant is on our way home when we go into the city and ahandy place to stop next to the main A48 road at Bonvislton. The last time we... More

Been here a few times now with my husband mum dad nan and sister. We all like different things and all left full and satisfied. Service is great and friendly. Normal portions are huge. But they do a smaller size of you prefer. All food is lovely quality. Will be going back again.

We called in to The Old Post on Wednesday evening for a meal, with my husband, his Aunt. As my husbands Aunt and I didn't want a large portion we opted for the smaller portion of Scampi and Battered Cod. My husband had the normal portion of Scampi, it was very nice but while the scampi and the cod were... More

Visited the old post today to find they have a new menu and no longer do the 2 for 1, but food was well priced regardless of this. Couldn't fault the food. Both meals were well cooked and very tasty. Lovely pub would definitely recommend.

For main courses we had 2 Mixed Grills, A Taveners Chickens, and a Steak New Yorker. We all enjoyed our meals, and was to stuffed to have a... More

'Chilli' burger had a teaspoon of chilli on it; when asked for more another teaspoon added. Went to cut burger in half; couldn' t get knife through it. Replaced burger was ok. Chicken pie had a...

Two for one deal on meals. Our party of four were all satisfied with our meals and they seemed good value for money. However when it came to ordering sweets, I chose not to have one and opted for a coffee instead, yet it did not arrive until everyone else had finished their sweet. My friend complained on my behalf... More
