Lovely building/setting. But waited over an hour for a very average meal! Unfortunately will never visit again due to this experience. Also had to ask for gravy as hardly any on roast dinners we ordered! Very disappointed.

Who was a lovely host and had some great local knowledge. The food was nice. And portion sizes very generous. Having eaten at many a pub... More

This Inn is close to where we stay in mid Wales. There has been a dramatic improvement in the food quality, pricing and the atmosphere is now friendly. We used to avoid the place but it's now a pleasant place to be. Congratulations to all the staff for turning it around.

We stopped here at about 3:30pm on a Sunday on our way home from North Wales. It was a relief to find somewhere that was offering food all day, including a roast. We were made very welcome & had a beef and a lamb roast dinner. We had good portions of meat, lovely vegetables & more gravy when we asked... More

Our party of three stopped here for a late lunch. We all had the roast dinners, two beef and one chicken. The beef was very tough and the vegetables overcooked. Overall we were dissapointed with our meals. The service was good and friendly.

We had been staying in Liverpool for the first part of our holiday and were looking for somewhere to stop for a coffee on our way to West Wales. We stumbled upon the Penrhos Arms which looked lovely, it was mid-morning so was empty. The friendly staff served our coffee and it was very good. It is a very pleasant... More

We were staying in the area while visiting family last week and went to the Penrhos Arms several times in the evening. The pub is located in Cemmaes on the A470, about 7 miles/10-minutes from Machynlleth. There is limited parking in back of the pub, but we never had a problem finding a space. There is also limited on-street parking... More

We called in whilst touring in the area. It is an excellent local village pub, with a varied and reasonable priced menu. The friendly staff made you feel really welcome. The food was delicious and we will definitely be calling in again soon.
