Looking for a place to eat in Merthyr Tydfil, we were unsure what to expect with this pub. This place is best described as simple and authentic. As you pass the door, they will try to make you feel welcome. The service is pretty friendly while the decor is plain and the atmosphere pretty quiet. The food on the menu... More

Went here with a small group of family and what a brilliant surprise. The place is a little gem hidden away in Dowlais. Declan has done a wonderful job in creating a homely atmosphere and serves good honest local food that is both plentiful and quality, the drinks are also very good and price honestly although we had to have...

If there was a 5STAR plus option, this outstanding family friendly restaurant would be first on my list. Food in large portions didn't take anything away from its top notch quality. Friendly staff and the owner run a business to be proud of. Try the food here,you won't be disappointed!

What a lovely meal and what superb service!... I can't speak highly enough of the quality of our delicious meal and of the service of a true gentleman and cracking owner. Providing me with a cheeky half on the house as I waited for a taxi was a touch of class!... Left a couple of sides off the bill and... More

My husband and I dined at the restaurant last night after hearing great things about this place, we were not disappointed! We got a warm welcome from Declan the owner who is polite and friendly as are the staff. Declan even told us a little about the history of the place and was very interesting to talk to. The food...
