I'm fussy about food but I do love the food here. The service is always friendly too and the entertainment evenings are fab. It's only a couple of minutes from the main road. Very traditional with a lovely atmosphere.

Really good pub food but not only that but the bar man serving us was so polite and cheerful, and he couldn't do enough for us. Food was absolutely fantastic and the atmosphere lovely too. Will definitely come back on next visit to Wales.
