“Cozy Local Pub”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

If you hanker after an old-fashioned (no offence intended),friendly pub with no pool table,no juke box and well-kept ales,The Valentine is for you. I'm very fortunate in that I can call the "Vally" my local and whole heartedly commend it to anyone seeking a quiet,relaxing drink away from the hustle and bustle. There are a variety of rooms in which you can kick back and chill out,and a small,secluded beer garden where a bar-b-q is available on Sunday afternoons,weather permitting.The pub is well-known locally for its quiz-nights which are always fun,and regularly have acoustic entertainment. The Valentine is run by a delightful couple who get to know their customers by name and will push the boat out for special occasions.Child and dog-friendly,also!
There is even a book exchange,where you can swap books of all kinds...the pub opens at 3pm and is a grand place for a quiet read before the tea-time regulars come in. In the winter months,you can literally curl up in front of a blazing log-fire! Free wi-fi is always available.
The fact that they do not serve hot food is by no means a "failing"....in fact,the landlady's cheese boards are legendary!

“the best pub around.”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We never miss a trip to the Valentine when visiting Llanddulas. The Sunday barbeque in the beer garden was great. Good food, friendly staff and entertainment. What more could you ask. Try the quiz night, it's great fun.

“Simply a great pub”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Far and away the best pub in the area, and any area for that matter. Landlord and landlady are very friendly and welcoming, as are the staff. They did the pub up some time ago and continue adding homely touches. Beers are well kept too. We rarely visit Llanddulas without a trip to The Valentine.

“Cosy local pub”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

This is by far my favourite pub in the area, it's so hard to come across a friendly, cosy pub with good entertainment these days! Plus there's the added bonus of no scum bags spoiling it for everyone! Luke and Becky are always friendly and nothing is ever too much bother for them! Always look forward to having a few drinks here!
