Stayed here whilst visiting a daughter at the uni. It was recommended by my sons friend who lives locally and did everything we wanted. Accommodation is above the pub and was previously the owners flat. Whilst the decor wasn't your usual hotel everything was clean tidy and professional. Our room faced onto the steeeeeep car park at the back and... More

The starters were very expensive and we all... More

I booked this restaurant for a large party for Sunday lunch. The food on the varied menu was locally sourced, all home cooked including deserts and was truly delicious. The service was great and the host particularly welcoming. Car park a little tricky at busy times being the only downside. What a great experience... Well worth a visit.

The food was lovely fresh and well cooked we booked last minute and were lucky to get in. The lady in charge went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and make sure everything was to our satisfaction. My youngest fussy eating daughter whinged that her chicken nuggets were not brown enough which was overheard and she whisked them... More

skirting the edge of the Garth, the Gwaelod shares its name with the pretty little village it is situated in.

The beers are exceptional, the tranquil location is relaxing and the food is as perfect as pub grub can get. I have a test of bub grub in Wales and that is to order the faggots... if they are as good as my local butchers then it gets a high commendation... and these are, Very tasty, cooked perfectly with a...

Beautifully clean, warm, light and comfortable double room, slightly away from the pub, so no noise, food, well cooked, plenty of it, hot and tasty, you expect it to be fully because the landlady makes everyone so welcomed. Definitely be back.

It's a nice place and you need to book in advance ..... The food was ok but expensive for what is served .... Simply ok food but over priced but hey they appear to be full all the time so prices will remain high if people continue to book.
