Spent an afternoon in the beer garden after a walk through sirhowy valley park. Lovely spot, shaded and sunny areas. Food was delicious- I recommend the 1/2lb burger. Dog friendly, child friendly. Plenty of free parking. Good service. Would go again soon!

Popped in with family to have a bite to eat. The food was terrible. The chicken was dry and the chips overcooked. Everything was over cooked. Such a shame as this is a lovely pub and in the past food has been great. Hope they sort it out as food prices are steep for what they are serving.

Loved it here!. The food was tasty and great value for money with generous helpings. The bedroom was modern, clean, tidy and warm with TV and en suite bathroom. The staff were always on hand if required. However, if you are a light sleeper, the creaky floor boards of the upper floor may keep you awake as other guests move...
