“A very special venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

A group of us dined at the Gwaelod y Garth Inn to celebrate a colleague's retirement. The menu was varied and interesting; the ambience was relaxing; the service was exceptional; a special place to eat.
OK, the parking is tight - but it is difficult to put a car park on a hillside!! What you lose in parking is amply made up for with the fantastic views across the valley. The great food and ale was much appreciated - once we sat down to dine, we didn't have to move: everything was brought to the table. Highly recommended.

“A little gem in the valleys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

This was a great find away from the 'plastic' pubs. The service, food and drink were excellent. It does get very busy so booking is advisable.

Loved the mussels, and my steak was melt in the mouth. Service was great, great atmosphere. Really pleased its within walking distance. Well deserving of its tripadvisor score.

“Exceptional pub food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is a pub which offers a very good menu. A cut above average pub food. This is a nice location for a summer lunch or a winter evening. Parking can be tricky but it is worth the effort. It has a range of dishes which are well-cooked. Prices may be a little more than pub grub usually runs up.
