We went to this pub a couple of times during a summer holiday at nearby Pen Fistla Barns. It is a fantastic place - the service is really friendly and helpful, the locals in the pub were also friendly (not always the case in pubs), good ambience with seating both out front and garden in back. The food is lovely,... More

Met friends here with the kids as it has a lovely large garden to the rear for them to run around in. Food is decent pub grub and the staff are great.

This place has some really bistro type dishes worth trying like the belly pork, it has quite a good range of dishes on the menu both traditional and gastro and some great ales on. The desserts were very good if you had room! The bar area is always decorated with hops, lights type things and looks inviting. Good for a... More

This pub is a favourite in our family. Fab food, lovely staff and a large garden to keep my football mad son entertained! I recommend the prawn cocktail and the steak and ale pie.

One night wondering what too do for food and heard so many good reviews from friends and family about this place, so thought I would give it a try. We certainly weren't disappointed, on arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome as soon as we entered by a young gentleman behind the bar (Matthew) and shown to our table,... More
