We had a nice meal in this lovely old pub. Although we are both Vegetarian, the chef made a stir fry and a mushroom stroganoff both of which were delicious. There is a very nice atmosphere in the pub and the dining room and the service was first class. I would recommend the Pandy Inn for any visitor to the... More

Unassuming little pub in the village, but really friendly staff, couple of excellent ales and the food was fantastic - imaginative and very well priced. Ate here because we were at a B&B (Bage Pool) nearby, but really pleased we found this as pub as well.

Visit this Inn twice during our stay in Hay-on-Wye. Food and service was excellent. The only problem was that on our second visit they had run out of items on the sweet menu. Would visit again but before ordering would make sure they had a full menu on offer.

We chose the Pandy Inn following previous positive TripAdvisor reviews....and also because it had favourable online menu prices. The steak was fine but the rest of the meal was mediocre. The price in the pub was significantly higher than the price on the Pandy Inn web site, making this an unexpectedly expensive evening!

This was one of the best pub meals I have ever had. I had the Herefordshire beef and it melted in the mouth - delighted to have had it, but it has ruined steak for me now!

We go to the Pandy on the spur of the moment because it's our local. That means we know the menu, and tend to stick to the well-trodden mains of rack of lamb (check if they have it on), Madgetts farm roast duck, sirloin steak and fish and chips (excellent cod, sweet mushy peas, home-made tartare sauce). And we always... More

We are new to the area and are trying out local Pub Restaurants, so decided to have a meal at The Pandy Inn, we were not disappointed. The main meals and puddings we had were excellent. The staff were happy for us to eat in the main bar rather than in the restaurant. The atmosphere was fantastic plus there was... More

Lovely little pub in Dorstone village, I believe it is about 7 miles outside Hay on Wye. Small car park but inside is quaint and snug, with log burner, and lovely people who run it. We arrived quite late in the evening approx 8.40pm and they stop doing food at 9pm but were more than happy to Make us some... More

We have been to Pandy Inn quite a few times now and it never disappoints. The place itself is very dark especially for people with sight problems but they make sure we have a table in the window . The landlord and staff are very pleasant. We had the traditional Sunday lunch, starting with a warm duck salad which was... More

We love this place. Seriously friendly local. Honest, no pretensions, fun accommodation and hearty, delicious food. As for the small number of grumpy reviews: are you serious!? Relax and enjoy.
