What a great find when having a day out in Aber. We needed a dog friendly pub so a Trip Advisor search gave us this. We found it with friendly locals who all said hello and then goodbye later. But that and the cosy bar were not the best bits, it was the food which was possibly the best any... More

This really is worth a visit. Quality of food & drink is second to none. Presentation of the food is quite awesome, much like a michelin star rated restaurant. Prices are very reasonable indeed. Lovely friendly staff and we met the chef as well. The Druid comes very highly recommended and we will be visiting again soon. Thanks Lewis.

Just been to The Druid Inn, Goginan, for lunch. Heard so many good things about this place. Lovely welcome and comfy seats. A lot of vegetarian options on the menu, which pleased our granddaughter. I had the steak and ale pie, though the crust was one of those puff pastry separate things it was very good. Lots of hand pumps... More

The Druid Inn itself isn't particularly much to look at, outside or in - it just looks like another roadside pub; in fact we've driven past it dozens of times preferring to look for somewhere that appeared a bit more 'upmarket'. However, on the back of a very good Trip Advisor rating, we decided to give this a go, and... More

As a party of 8 with a dog in tow, we thought it may be difficult to get somewhere good to eat lunch. We were in the area having met for a family occasion. We were greeted warmly, offered a great table and the service was excellent throughout. The food was really very good indeed, well cooked and with plentiful... More

Good first impression. On arriving lovely welcome table reserved water provided for my 2 terrier dogs. Two of us ordered from a varied lunch menu. Ordered... More

My husband and I regularly travel over 20 miles for Sunday lunch at the Druid Inn because it's the best in the area. The roast beef cuts like butter and the vegetables are always cooked to perfection and never overcooked. Yesterday we finished off the meal with a home-made Bakewell tart for hubby and the berry fruit special for me... More

On approaching this little gem one would never know what awaited them. Outside it looks like an ordinary little 'local' and once inside the same impression lingers. That is until you meet the great upbeat staff who are more than obliging. On your first visit even the beer is try before you buy. That said, what is exceptional about the... More
