A large group of us went here for a birthday meal we all had the roast dinner and it was a really nice meal. The pub itself is tucked away down little side streets but we found parking ok.

Went to The Hobby Horse with some friends last week. There was a great selection of veggie food, the portions were enormous and there was a great welcome. Would definitely recommend the pub.

This place is tucked away from the hustle and bustle. The food is basic pub grub and to a high standard. It is not fine dining but 'it does what it says on the tin'. Thee are always a couple of decent and well kept local real ales availble. The staff and locals are friendly enough. If this is what... More

Visited here a few times on family occasions and haven't got a bad word to say about the place. The staff are overly polite and friendly. The food is gorgeous!! I had the lasagne and it was very taste and plenty on the plate. The prices are also very good!

Called in here today and had a light lunch. Excellent value for money and whilst not fine dining, it was very good pub grub. Recommended

Came for a two course Christmas lunch with the South Wales Long Distance Walkers Association. £10 for a massive turkey dinner with four veg, boiled and roast potatoes followed by Christmas pudding. Great atmosphere. Friendly barman who gave samples of beers to drink prior to buying. Can't fault the place to be honest for what I paid.
