Had Sunday lunch here recently with the family and was expecting great things given the recent reviews and the availability of a table. The Inn was very busy and the wait staff attentive enough to us and our young son. There was an extensive menu to chose from, even on a Sunday afternoon, and the food itself was nice, but... More

We are just about to leave Cardiff after six months, but were compelled to have one more meal at Gwaelod y Garth Inn. The views over the Taf Valley, well-maintained gardens nearby, and a very fine menu make this one of our favorites in South Wales. Friendly patrons flock here, so make early reservations for the dining room upstairs. More... More

A great dining experience with wonderful views over the Valley. We eat here on Saturday evening and again for Sunday Lunch. Staff were attentive and well trained by Barbara the owner who is charming and helpful.

Just got to say thank you very much to Babs and all the staff for the wonderful lunch that we had on the occasion of our mum's 80th birthday. We have celebrated so many family birthdays there and always have a fab time. The little room at the side is a perfect place for a bit of privacy and more... More

This is a wonderful village pub with a small but excellent restaurant on the first floor (has disabled access on the level from the rear car park, ideal for people who find stairs difficult). We booked a table for thirteen for my sisters fiftieth birthday and the table had been adorned with balloons, table decorations and table confetti - nice... More

Having been here for our valentines meal earlier in the year, we thought it would be worth a punt to ask if they were also able to accomodate our wedding reception. From the outset Babs and Rob were amazingly accomodating and really went far beyond the call of duty to make sure we had a stress free experience in arrangin... More

Didn't even know this place existed till my friends told me about it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was well presented and tasty. There is a mouthwatering choice of cakes if you leave enough room after your Neal as well. Lots of craft beers and ciders available as well as the main brands. Great place
