Had a lovely meal and the man that owned it offered fantastic service. The menu was limited however what we did have was cooked to perfection. If you go here definitely try the sausages they were really lovely. Definitely will be revisiting, if you are thinking on it do so!

We arrived for an early dinner and were greeted by Declan who was very welcoming. He explained the items on the menu. Delicious Lamb.

Went here for a birthday treat and was not disappointed food was out of this world . Service is excellent you are welcomed when you enter and shown to your table . There is no rush to order your food and after you've eaten you are left alone to make room for dessert. Will definitely be going here again .

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...

This place just gets better and better every time we visit, the first course through to the dessert its nothing but a warm welcome fantastic service and plentiful food, Declan and his wife have made this restaurant the best place around, and the new sizzler meals for a £5 really appeal to younger people or for those just fancy poping...
