Booked two nights as we were at a wedding in nearby Bryn Meadow resort and its proximity to that swayed us even though reviews were mixed. Arrived Friday evening 1st July and had a drink and a nice meal. Then our troubles started. I had printed off confirmation which I had with me and the room (we'd paid extra for... More

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... More

Large portions, good variety on menu. Caerphilly chicken is delicious. Friendly staff. Free parking. Been a few times now and will return. Excellent value got money. Decor a bit dated. Traditional pub. Nice chips. Never had room for dessert

Due to another fairly local establishment messing us about we ended up here as they were able to fit us in at short notice. Nice food for a reasonable price and being quite close to where we live I would happily use or recommend them. I'll definitely be going back - I can recommend the Chocolate Fudge cake for dessert!!... More

First impressions were very good, we instantly felt a warm welcome and we were taken straight to our room. It was lovely, very clean and cosey! Tastefully decorated and the air fresheners were a good touch. The only fault we had was the shower wasn't very powerful and it took us a while to realise that you couldn't turn it... More

I attended with a party of friends. The décor is great and the whole place has a great family feel to it. But then it goes down hill. The food served was fine but the service was poor. We had pre-ordered but we were not served together. The place was quite full and meals seemed to be arriving for everyone... More
