We called in on Friday night for a snack and had two Brie and bacon panninis and they came with nice chips and salad but they were approx £8.45 which we thought was a bit much for the type of place it is. Reading other reviews they say the place has just been refurbished - goodness knows what it was like before! What a shame - it could easily be made very nice. It was very busy but we wouldn't go again.

Called here on a Friday evening on our way down to Aberdovey, very presentable from the outside but in need of some TLC inside.
We only had a Bacon & Brie Pannini with Salad & fries, they were OK but at £8.50 (approx) we thought they were a couple of pounds overpriced.
If you want a quick sandwich & a pint it's OK but thats about all.

We're on holiday here and have visited this pub for food a couple of times.

It's not fancy, but it's very tasty and the service is really friendly - even with our 4 year old.

Would thoroughly recommend this pub for food if you're after a hearty meal to warm up or dry out :-)

All in all this a fantastic pub. It's newly refurbished and very pleasant inside, while the beer garden is a fantastic place to spend an afternoon when the Sun's out. The food is very good for the price, and the staff, for the most part, are great (there's sometimes a rather moody blonde in there who always looks ready to hang herself from one of the beams on the ceiling).

Reccommended.

We used to come at least once a week for a meal
But now we wont go because after the menu changed we as vegans have no options there.
Last time we went there we waited for a good 45 minutes for a meal.
and when it came it was below standards.
Luckily the former manager was on site and she refunded us.

Its a good Pub and nice place to drink in but I do not recommend it for food.
