Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had dinner here recently and it was great! Friendly, helpful staff and the food was delicious. It's also really cosy and warm on a cold and wet January evening! We will definitely return if we are ever in the area again.

I was on my way from north to south Wales and really needed to pop to the toilet. I have Crohn’s disease and often need to find a toilet quick smart. The ladies inside were lovely as I wasn’t a customer but they had no problems with me using their toilet. Often places refuse and even if I get my ‘can’t wait card ‘ out they still refuse unless you are purchasing. Very friendly, very helpful and helped me avoid any unwanted issues. Thank you ladies so much xx

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights at this cozy and welcoming Inn! The Inn is nestled in the gorgeous verdant green Welsh countryside . We explored the area and walked up to Bron Yr Aur . The Autumn colors were just exquisite and the tiny country roads with hedgerows and sheep everywhere were full of character and color. The rooms at the Inn are very well kept, clean, nicely designed and the bed very comfortable. The food is amazing , we enjoyed the breakfasts and dinners….Smoked Salmon and Haddock, tender meats, delicious homemade soups and bread, Roasted chicken and Lamb … with roasted potatoes and seasonal veggies, everything was so good! The staff was so kind and accommodating . We enjoyed our chat with Kevin the owner , he is a great storyteller and was happy to help us plan our day and give us information about the area. There is several public sitting rooms in the inn that you can relax in and read or watch TV. We were so happy to find this gem and highly recommend it as the finest place to stay in the area, It is the perfect base!

What an amazing place. We stayed one night and wished we could have stayed longer. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and the bathroom was very well equipped. The staff are so friendly and helpful and it didn’t feel as if you were staying in a hotel, more like family. The food was delicious and good sized meals at really good prices. Will definitely stay again and next time we pass will stop for a meal.

We used Brigands Inn as a base for our car club tour of the area. It was exceptional - rooms, food, ambience, everything. Nothing was too much trouble. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and can highly recommend it. Thanks to Sue and the rest of the team

Really nice Sunday lunch, I had beef and partner had Pork. Loads of money and crunchy fresh veg. Initially shocked at £25 price tag for lamb but, after sampling the beef I can see it would be value for money. Polite, efficient staff. We sat outside as it was a lovely day but the inside looked clean and inviting too.
