Stopped on the off chance. Hadn’t been since August as now living in Cardiff. Was not disappointed. The beef and ale pint was beautiful. Locally sourced beef, slow cooked to perfection. Fantastic service and the owners as always happy to chat. Diolch Dafydd a Lynwen.

Kindest folk run the pub, which is 150 years old apparently in a space that used to be a butcher 400-500 years ago! Great steaks.
