3 of us ate at this pub on August 13 and what a great place to go for an evening out. Had some fantastic real ales from a pretty impressive choice in a lovely bar area, then went into the restaurant for a meal where we were made to feel very welcome and appreciated specials were available as well as...

We have had so many of our family birthday celebrations here as well as casual lunches and evening meals. We still return whenever we can even though we've moved away from the area. There is always a warm welcome and the staff friendly and obliging. The meals are freshly cooked and the portions are generous. Fresh bread and butter is... More

Been a few times since Nov 13 - there's always lots on offer on the menu with favourites and specials available. Food is of really good/high quality pub/bistro style. Good selection of beverages in a great traditional pub setting. If your looking for cheap/special offer pub menu options then you may think this is a bit pricey. However if your... More

Went with 3 friends to this Pub/Inn back in February 2014 for an evening meal and then later in May with one friend for lunch midday. Really nice environments whether you are in the restaurant or the pub. Food excellent. Location looks a bit random when you finally find the turn just outside of Taff's Well but then you arrive...

My family and I have been to the UK a few times, and without doubt , this is our favourite restaurant. Although it doesn't look much from the outside, inside is a warm and relaxing environment. Staff are friendly,and the food is absolutely divine. The steak here is really great.

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
