Nice ambience, relaxed atmosphere, open fire, orders taken whilst having a drink and before seated at table. Not a huge choice but food very tasty and great variety of side dishes. excellent service. Only cricticism would be decor in restaurant area could do with updating. Had Xmas dinner here a few years ago which was lovely.

Just OK. Food here is OK and I expected better. It's between Basseleg and Bedwas just outside Caerphilly. Nice inside.

Sad to see on walking to this pub this week to enjpy another good lunch, find that it is closed and boarded up. Which would seem to indicate that another country pub has closed down going the way of many others.Looks very sad at the Fwrrwm Ishta and I would suspect unlikly to reopen?

Well I have to say it was quite a let-down.
Expected far more from what I'd heard and from the outward impression.
Looks like only half the building's been finished inside, a nice-ish restaurant side, and a ghastly 'pub lounge' side - with no separation.
Found the menu to be very limited and containing nothing of particular interest. All standard fare. Just ended up with a steak which wasn't worth the money.
Drink selection poor, wine available by the glass was hugely disappointing.
Must do so much better.

Thank Dave H
