Absolutely brilliant, homely food with a cosy atmosphere and great local draft ale. Excellent menu, so good I wanted to try everything on it! Had a great experience from start to finish, would definitely recommend a visit.

My lamb was cooked to perfection and still pink. This was our second visit and no doubt not the last. Remember to book for Sunday lunch. Although tucked... More

We have eaten many times at Y Polyn and have never been disappointed by the reception of the staff and the quality of the food. Complimentary freshly baked bread and a choice of either still or sparkling water is given before you start looking at the menu of delights. Starters often cause concern as we want to try them all...

This place is amazing from the fresh bread and water that are complimentary to the tasty well presented food. The steak was incredible, I have eaten Kobi beef and this didn't have a patch on this steak, great cut of meat, amazingly cooked that melts in your mouth! The brownie was the best I have ever tasted.

We often return to the Polyn as it has always provided the food, service, atmosphere that we enjoy. A warm welcome is guaranteed and there is a personal touch to be had. They also speak English and Welsh to suit the customer.

Nice lunchtime visit, all food freshly prepared from quality ingredients. A good selection on the menu and perfectly executed, good value for money (although, not cheap) and well worth a turn visit. Nice professional service

We dined at Y Polyn on a Thursday evening, to celebrate two family birthdays. Between us, we gave the Menu a thorough testing! The main courses were delicious, in particular the Gressingham Duck and the rib-eye steak. Definitely worth returning to this friendly pub-restaurant.

Good food with a good atmosphere, don't normally do fine dining but this was a treat. Would definitely go again and for £35, 3 courses is well worth it! To be very critical, the music would need to be a tad louder so you don't feel like you have to whisper.
