We ate here both nights on our recent stay - as it was conveniently located. We understand that the landlords changed recently (about 3 weeks ago), and that the new landlord was acting (perhaps temporarily) as the chef. The food was good quality pub food - nothing dramatic, but no complaints either. The slow cooked shoulder of lamb was excellent, and a large portion.

Only negative was the selection of on-tap beers - but that's what you get from a brewery-tied pub.

Stopped here for lunch ,friendly welcome we had sandwiches which were very nice chunky chips that we thought were going to be homemade but were frozen, we also had desserts that we thought were too expensive for the portion sizes. will go back to try the evening menu.

The new owners had only taken over two weeks before our visit but they have many years experience of the pub/restaurant business and it shows. Lovely welcome, attentive staff and wonderful food. Everything just as it should be.
Oh and they speak Welsh!

Having known the area for 28 years, the new owners are clearly switch on to locals and tourists needs. The new menu that apparently was launched today is superbly complimented with delicious specials.
We had the tournedos Rossini which was a great choice to use the Welsh Black Sirloin steaks that they only buy of their local suppliers. Great to see using local produce. Keep it up guys I've got a feeling you will be a success. Great start.

Hi, Thank you for your comments. We do care and hope that continues to come across in how we will develop The Vaynol Arms into the country village pub it should be. Thank you once again

We visited here because of the Trip Advisor reviews. The pub is now under new management. We chose fish and chips - the fish was good quality but the batter was poor - perhaps they should try beer batter. the chips were a disappointment - undercooked. Overall it was Ok, but not the gastronomic experience we were expecting.
