What a wonderful pub! Just returned home after our first visit and our only regret is that we have not eaten here before. The surroundings, service and menu were first class and the food was simply outstanding. This is a place we will certainly visit again. Oh, I haven't even mentioned the selection of real ales which are well worth... More

Friendly local real ale fireside pub AND a five star restaurant with genuinely friendly service? Tick, tick. If I've eaten a better steak in my life, I can't remember it. I can count the number of restaurants in South Wales where we've both immediately promised to be back on one finger. Now we've another one. What a meal!! I ordered... More

We have had lunch at this inn several times in the last three years. The menu is varied and food is delicious and well served. We have usually visited with family and grandchildren, have always had a very warm welcome and needs of the young children are well catered for. Good choice of real ales.

Excellent place to eat. Food is delicious and well served. Extensive choice on the menu. Good value for what your getting. Staff are very friendly and very accommodating, nothing is too much trouble. The pub is in an excellent setting on garth mountain. Only reason I have not given a five star is because of difficulty parking especially fr Sunday... More

on a monthly basis for three or more nights at a time, I now stay in their Violet Cottage on a self catering basis, why? because the food is so damn good I can't resist it. I'm not the only "away from home" regular visitor, there's quite a few of us, that does say something for the hospitality. I feel... More

We had a walk to this pub have visited before and not been disappointed. We arrived a little late for lunch but the friendly bar maid checked & we were given a choice of 4 dishes that the cook was still able to do for us which I thought was really good considering that as we were late we were...

Where to start? Gwaelod is just down the road from my home village so I was always aware of its existence but had never used the pub before. We booked a stay there for a family wedding. It's in a lovely spot on the foot of the Garth Mountain and is in the heart of the community in more ways... More

The Gwaeldod Y Garth Inn is a hidden treasure. Four of us visited for my wife's birthday in mid June. We were made to feel very welcome right from the start. The staff were extremely attentive and the service was exemplary. The menu is varied without being too 'cluttered' with a good choice of starters, main courses and desserts to... More

We booked a table and went there to find that we were shoved in a little corner. The manager obviously knew some of the people and was so polite to them. We were new there and had to wait for service, wait for the food and felt rushed to get out. FOOF NOTHING SPECIAL FOR THE MONEY. BETTER AND MORE... More

First visit, recommended by our son who lives in rhadyr. First impressions were good, excellent decor and friendly welcoming staff. We were shown to our table and although it was busy for a Wednesday evening the room was not overpowering. We were shown the menu and given fantastic fresh bread while we looked at the menu. Our drinks were served... More
