Extremely difficult to locate but worth the effort ! ...a throw back to the good old days when the locals supported a good old down to earth pub ....very well kept beers ....outstanding views from annexe window ....and the the landlady was very welcoming and ameniable. Lovely spot to watch the local bird and wildlife note the goats kept in the garden ...this pub is a gem ...long may it florish!

The owner couldn’t have been more rude or unwelcoming. We walked in to try and make a booking for a date in the New Year as the reviews were generally good, and asked if we could have a drink then as we were walking in the area. We’d barely stepped in the door before being berated and practically pushed back out. We were then reluctantly offered seating outside, but after such a hostile initial welcome we went elsewhere. I appreciate people can be stressed running a business, but there was absolutely no need for this sort of attitude.

We had heard about this pub from walking chums and thought we would pay a visit. We travelled along a single track road before finding this quaint pub that did feel as though it was in the middle of nowhere and another century ❤️We were welcomed by one lady Rhiannon who served us drinks and took our food order from the very limited menu, nevertheless the spicy soup was tasty. There were clearly some locals in the bar who appeared to know the bar staff (owners) well. Now, we had complied with COVID regs and entered wearing masks and completed the contact sheet and Sanitised. We noticed that one lady there Sue wore no mask and when one guy entered with no mask she absolutely berated him. However the non mask wearing locals were never challenged and subsequently she appeared to ignore the other people who came in without masks. She herself walked around the pub maskless. We went from - lovely pub let’s come back here in the spring and summer to “let’s not bother” So if you are a local don’t worry about the COVID restrictions if you are not- it’s a case of do as I say not do as I do.

As locals, some of us like to support this historic and quite isolated hillside pub by planning walks around it. However the welcome is never assured. The hostess presents as stressed and unwelcoming. The food is tasty and of good quality, with excellent filled rolls and wholesome soups as a light lunch option and they serve good beer. However, this hardly makes up for the brusque reception which awaits you, whether in a group or as a couple.

We walked to the pub from Trenosa and what a welcome we had. Its only a small pub but Sue, Rhiannon and Matthew behind the bar made you so so welcome and even the locals. We were only staying for an hour and ended up staying for 3. Its not a massive menu but I think its changed regularly. We only had welsh rarebit but oh my word how tasty!!!!! You will definatley return!!
