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.

Comfortable, cosy rooms with everything we needed for an overnight stop.

The curry night food was very good and extremely welcome after a long day's trekking.

Most of all, the team here, led by Lorna, were extremely helpful. There was a real sense they were committed to making our stay as comfortable as possible - as well as adhering to all the necessary Covid precautions and procedures.

Four of us had lunch at The Raven Inn today.
It was a great experience.
The pub is a real olde worlde building, the staff were excellent, lively, good fun and professional.
The food was just great. Three of us had the nut roast and one had roast beef. They all came with roasties, Yorkshires and mashed carrot and swede, plus cauliflower cheese, and green beans and cabbage, served separately, all beautifully cooked.
For dessert three of us had summer pudding with clotted cream, and one had sticky toffee pudding. All of the desserts were home made, and again, they were excellent.
The pub is a bit out in the sticks, but in a pretty village and well worth the trip!
The pub is community owned. Do go!

Our first visit to the Raven, which will not be the last. Warm welcome, warm pub, and a very good, ample and hot Christmas meal. We needed to order in advance, as the Raven is a community run pub and needs to avoid waste....which always impacts on price. This was a bit more work upfront, but as we are much more used to ordering/planning/booking ahead due to the pandemic, it was a minor inconvenience and with two small children in the party it speeded up the delivery.

Long day's walk and what a place to find at the day's end. Greeted by a friendly face and everyone was so welcoming. Our rooms were excellent, of a high standard and also had kitchenettes. Fortunate as they don't serve evening meals on a Monday. We had previously ordered provisions from the community run shop next door and the hamper/cool box waited on a table for us on arrival. What service. All worked out and we cooked a meal whilst having real ales from the bar. They allowed us to eat in the marquee downstairs where we continued into the evening. The groceries supplemented the continental breakfast provided and made up our packed lunches too. Highly recommended.

Stayed in this friendly pub in a beautiful part of Wales and can highly recommend it. We had the room with self-catering facilities and it was excellent. There is a full kitchen so you could cook a roast dinner if you wanted to! The bed was comfy, it was very clean, there was no noise from the (fairly ) full bar downstairs and there was a continental breakfast in the fridge for the morning. Just a few steps away there is a community-run shop where you can stock up on any essentials you have forgotten.
The pub serves good beer and the customers are very friendly.
Higly recommend this for a lovely relaxing stay.

Needed somewhere as a stop-over point with the family dog on route down south. Booked two rooms that we honeslty couldn't fault for the value. Each had everything we needed and the beds were very comfy. A large marquee tent was erected at the front of the building which was perfect for enjoying a few pints and a lovely pannini. Staff were great and the pub was very dog freindly! looking forward to staying again in the future.

Lovely community run pub in the village - this has become our new local when we are visiting the area! We love the food and always have brilliant, friendly and attentive service. Cosy, quaint atmosphere and decor. Dog and baby friendly. Always accommodating. Varied menu, particularly recommend the Sunday Roast but whatever you choose you’ll be pleased with. Excellent quality and great value. Highly recommended.
