Stop here regularly when walking my dogs along the canal.
Easy location to find and is signposted from the canal midway between Goytre Wharf and Pontypool, and is only about 150 metres walk down country lane.
I've been lucky enough to go on a beautiful day and sat outside in beer garden, which has ample parasols on tables to keep you/dogs shaded. Always been plenty of water for dogs, and if run out, staff have been very prompt with refilling. Had ploughman's and shandy here. Ploughman's contained large warm crusty bageutte just fresh from oven, with plenty of butter to smother lovingly over it. main components were thick slices of ham and a large chunk of cheese, with a pot of pickle and two very dark pickled onions to quench and invigorate the tastebuds ooohhhh. The last elements of the ploughman's was a whole apple and a few sticks of celery, overall very filling just what was needed to recharge me for a walk home, only let down by celery sticks as were soft and dry as if had been cut much earlier.
Another good aspect is that dogs can go into the bar which would be a good respite if it had been raining
Service by staff good, nothing worthy to note, did the basics, as quite would have been nice to have engaged in a bit of conversation.
