Love this place; staff are great and the food is always great. Do not miss the Sunday carvery, but book in advance as it is very busy. Oh, don't have a starter because you have to have some Cheesecake!!!

We should have been prepared for the worst when the starter arrived which actually didn't taste of anything which (laughably) was sold as chicken satay and £3.25 for dry garlic bread!! The sauces with at the bland main courses were toxic, everything was processed, nothing homemade. Aggressive fellow diners who should have been escorted out. Terrible music created an appalling...

Food glorious food. Fantastic choice of 6 meats. Every kind of vegetables and sauce. Eye's bigger than belly don't worry they will give you a box to take away. Staff are friendly polite and can't do enough for you. We will be back for sure. Thanks for a lovely welcome.

Had a really good evening with the family. This included my 3yr old daughter and myself being gluten intolerant. Despite this we had a lovely evening. The service could not have been more helpful. Very supportive of us difficult people including using a different fryer! I can recommend the Tapas and sardines. The ribs were delicious and very filling, so... More

My husband and I ate here twice during our holiday to Wales. The staff were excellent, prompt and professional and both meals were very well presented and extremely tasty. Will defiantly eat here again when we return.

We went here for a birthday meal. We had a very warm welcome and the food was very nice although we did feel the gammon dishes had slightly too much fat running on the plate although another member of the group liked this as it was a nice taste

We stopped here for a meal while staying at Llandeusant youth hostel about 7 miles away. The pub itself is a stunning old building with plenty of antiques and suits of armour to add character. The staff were really friendly and welcoming and the food was excellent. The tiger prawn starter was out of this world, served with really fresh... More
