decided to try this pub as we have passed it a few times when we have been out and about, when you step into the pub it has a lovely country feel to it, it was quite but that suits us and being at the end of the summer holidays I would expect it to be quite.The food was of excellent quality my husband had the steak burger which came with fresh bread chips and a side salad, I had the pate with wholegrain toast and a side salad also all which are local produce which we like, there is a wide selection on the menu from breakfast to sandwiches they also do Sunday lunches which we will be trying if its anything like what we had it should be very good, I highly recommend if you are in the area to call in as you will not disappointed at all my husband and myself had a lovely afternoon and will be calling back very soon.A*********

We booked a table for eight of us on my birthday and sat at the table for at least half an hour before anybody noticed us. Went to the bar to get some drinks as there's no table service, it took us 15 minutes to get served as the staff only seemed interested in serving the regulars. When we were eventually given menus and ordered our food (we'd been there 45 minutes at this point) we were promptly told that nothing we had ordered was available and that we should have arrived earlier - as it happens we did, but never mind. Very disappointed not to have the pâté and Welsh lamb we had ordered most of us went for (half a bowl of) soup for starters and steak for main. We noticed that one of our party had had his main missed from the bill, so being honest sorts we told the mans fed who added it on and a few minutes later his main arrived. Just as he finished eating ours arrived... Oh dear. The manager told us this was because we ordered his separately, we kindly bit our tongues and started on our steaks, which we had ordered blue. They were not blue, however, more of a reddish-brown, medium rare if you will. This time we didn't bite our tongues but it didn't get us anywhere. So, determined to salvage the evening we resolved to order some champagne and watch other poor hapless dinners order food which had long-since sold out, taking orders for yummy Welsh lamb and later exchanging it for over-cooked beef was becoming something of a speciality and highly amusing when it's happening to someone else. We eventually got outlet champagne which was warm and served out of wine glasses as all the champagne flutes were out, presumably the people who ate all the lamb earlier had been celebrating getting what they had ordered.
On the bright side I'm a year older now and our friend who ended up eating on his own got his meal for free as they forgot to put it on the bill the second time around... honesty only goes so far I'm afraid.

We happened to be passing this pub at lunchtime and decided to pull in for a pint and a meal.
We were warmly greeted by the staff, who were welcoming and helpful, in fact we had a good chat.
For lunch we ordered the roast of the day which was pork and the welsh rarebit (posh cheese on toast). Both meals were good and the roast gets a special mention as it came with plenty of wholesome vegetables, especially roast tatties.

A great spot to find. Highly recommend to others travelling through this part of Wales.

Lots of food, nicely prepared and served and it didn't take to long to arrive. Catering mainly to walkers, hikers and other mountain people. I had chicken in leek and bacon sauce which came with mash and frozen peas. Companion had steak. We ate everything!

Had hoped for a Sunday lunch but unbelievably all that was on offer was chicken breast and we were quickly informed there were only 6 available, how strange at 12.30 on a Sunday, presumably chef wasn't expecting a crowd but shortly after we arrived a large party of 8 that had pre-booked arrived. We only used this pub as it is dog friendly but found the menu disappointing and uninspiring, what we had was nice enough (burger and a welsh rarebit) but not worthy of a return visit. The log fire was cosy and if you want a beer in a nice bar then this is the place.
