A couple of miles outside Porthcawl but worth getting to. The fish hangs over the plate and portions of freshly cooked varied menu ensures that no one leaves hungry. The beers are so good that it is a shame that someone has to drive. Warm,...More

Went there for lunch with family, there was a good variety of ales, the place was warm and welcoming and the history of the building being an old courthouse was fascinating! Our food was excellent and my steak and ale pie was the best!

Starter was beautiful. The veggie curry main was made by somebody who doesn’t understand vegetarianism (pineapple never belongs in savoury food). The dessert was alright but I can also shop in Tesco to buy cheesecake like this. The lamb was a little ‘too’ fatty but...More

It is a dog friendly pub, any size. We regularly take a bulldog and a newfoundland into the pub but only in the snug (the left as you go in) as long as the dog is happy with other dogs as there are always dogs in there and... More
