Decided to book here with my wife and parents who were celebrating their wedding anniversary. It was my first time eating out in a pub since March. As soon as we arrived we were shown to our table, drinks and food orders were taken really quickly by our friendly waitress. Throughout the evening the food came quickly. It was all delicious - I loved the Lamb Kebabs and Couscous! Felt very safe and confident during our visit, will definitely be back! Thank you!

Found this place on booking.com and decided to stay here for two nights to visit Cardiff which isn’t too far away.

Checkin was easy, and the landlady was lovely. Our room was room 6, and it was perfect! Smelt amazing and was done out very nicely with everything we could need for our stay.

We had breakfast included in our stay and it was delicious!!

Overall we were very happy with our choice of stay. A little bit hidden away down some very narrow country lanes (were Londoners) so deffo not used to that!

But overall enjoyed our stay very much!

My husband and I stayed here for our first night of our honeymoon before heading further west. They very kindly upgraded our room. As someone with ceoliac disease I was excited to hear they they had some meals labeled gluten free on their menu; however, I think they need to do a bit more research on what someone who can't have gluten needs. They fry their 'gluten free' fish and chips in the same oil as their regular fried foods, which means there is cross contamination and the food is technically no longer gluten free. It was a bit disappointing since the fish and chips were labeled gluten free but they really weren't! Otherwise it was a nice stay.

Although a little remote and easy to drive past on a dark wet night this is a good place to stay.

I stayed for one night while working in the area, good service, warm and welcoming. The food was fantastic as was the friendly atmosphere in the bar.

The rooms are a little dated but very comfy and clean. Breakfast the next morning was also very good.

Would stay again if I was in the area.

Best roast beef dinner I've had in a long time - can't wait to go back. Impressed by the fact the waitress knew which farm the beef came from!
