After a strenuous hike around the waterfalls, my wife, my daughter and I were in desperate need of some hearty food. We didn't know the area and just happened upon the Glancynnon inn through pure chance. It was a Sunday afternoon (yesterday 24 May 2015) and we'd left it pretty late. The car park was emptying and we didn't hold... More

Having recently moved to this area I have looked at all the available places to eat and drink. This is the best. The food is really good and the service is next to non. I specially suggest you meet Steph who is one of the nicest people in this world and makes this place worth visiting. Barry

Excellent: Went for a Sunday lunch, the service was excellent, the portion size was great and the food tasted lovely. Room for improvement: The whole place looks tired but I can live with that however, the beer garden requires a tidy as there is broken furniture lying around and a smashed up phone box. This is hardly the smokers paradise... More

I live in the village and this used to be a fantastic pub/restaurant But has gone down hill, terrible food, awful beer, and car park is now always empty. My advice - Avoid

Family of 9 for Sunday lunch. Run out of the turkey and eventually the beef. Staff very helpful but we're running around like headless chickens. No spoons for the veg...no Yorkshire, no stuffing, mint sauce in sachets. had to wait for the chips after mains arrived. The actual food was quite good just a shame... think this place needs someone... More

Great service, staff made a fuss over my little girl Tilly who loved the attention. Food was superb. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
