Visited here with some family for my birthday. I had the fish and chips which was very nice and a big portion. I had aero cheesecake for desert which was delicious! My family also enjoyed their meals and the waiting staff were friendly and helpful. I do feel that the restaurant and bar needs updating. I love cosy old pubs... More

Great welcome, good hospitality. The food was excellent and great to have home made chips rather than cooked from frozen. Burgers were amazing especially the tex-mex. As a visitor to the area we found the local drinkers very chatty and really added value to our visit. A great pub.

Came here on the off-chance of a bit of dinner after a day exploring. Well, what can I say, we were pleasantly surprised. My husband had the garlic chicken and I had the tex mex burger and we had a side of cheesy garlic bread. Brilliant portion size and so tasty. We both had homemade apple crumble for dessert, omg...

Good food and beer plus friendly service. Longish wait for the food but we were forewarned they had a large party booking already, so that was no problem. Plus everything appeared freshly prepared. Had called in en-route to Pembrokeshire on the off-chance having originally intended stopping at a nearby farm shop restaurant but were put off by many of the... More

Called in for lunch - best Welsh chicken I've ever had - individual slices with lovely stilton and leek stuffing and thick non fatty bacon around the outside. Stunning crispy chips. Husbands burger also excellent. Asked for a small portion of cottage pie for my grandson rather than something and chips and they delivered.
