First time I've been here for Sunday lunch cant see me calling back unless they improve on their service, my prawn starter was frozen prawns the bottom of the bowl was awash with water, the butter was so hard you couldn't spread it on your bread, the main was ok, an average pub grub Sunday lunch that we had to wait over an hour after the starters, what a joke, the deserts were the best part, but when you had coffee, odd giving you Costa sugar and a wooden stick.

Beautiful little country pub, set in the rolling hills of Caerphilly and it was really nice to sit and relax, read and eat. If you're ever over this way and want a reasonable meal in a little Welsh farmhouse pub, then come here.

Visited today with family for lunch and both the food and service were great.

Nice big menu with plenty of choice, including vegetarian dishes. Starters and mains were all delicious. A little more expensive than usual for pub grub but worth it for the quality. Would definitely recommend and will be visiting again.
