My 2 friends had home cooked meat dishes that they enjoyed. But my vegetarian dish was not nice. Tasted very artificial. Service good and a pleasant atmosphere.

One of our favourite places for a great value, excellent Sunday roast. Service is always great. We have always had excellent meals, never any complaints. Great family atmosphere as well.

Visited for late lunch on Sunday. Plenty of tables without booking. Good vegetarian choice but many dishes (both veg and non veg) on specials board were sold out. Fresh hot food, didn't have to wait too long for it. Price slightly above average. Staff relatively friendly. No complaints but wasn't wowed. Would visit again, just not too soon.

Thank you fur your review, we would just like to point out that there was only two dishes that were sold out on our specials board due to being popular. As the specials board changes daily it is to be expected sometimes. Our full menu plus Sunday lunch menu was available totalling 27 main courses to choose from we don't... More

Staff were attentive and friendly. All of us were pleased with quality of establishment and food and drink. Then to top the evening off there was a... More

We visited this pub on both nights of our stay at a local guesthouse because we were very impressed with the food and friendliness of the staff on our first visit. I'd highly recommend this pub on that basis, it offered a good choice, cost atmosphere and mid range prices. We enjoyed the cheesy garlic bread as an appetiser.

We stumbled upon this place when on our way back to our accommodation. We have a 6 year old and a 2 year old, and the staff were very good with them. We had a 2 course dinner and a local beer, and couldn't fault any of it. There were 4 empty plates.

we stayed in a cottage not far from here, and decided to have a meal at the Vaynol Arms, we went quite early evening and were given a choice of where to sit, the staff are friendly and greeted us on our arrival. There is a good choice of meals, resonably priced and we enjoyed what we ate, the staff... More
