My wife and I decided to eat here we both had the lamb cawl with bread & spread, it was excellent, the staff were friendly, the only downside was that they don’t have real butter, we would eat here again.

The Spoons in Merthyr Tydfil as a 2 rating which is not the best but saying that they have brought back a previous manager and he is doing is best to sort out the problem, good luck with that.

Haven't been here for years! Had to meet a female Client so we had lunch here. I had the Welsh beef and ale pie, chips, peas and gravy. Sian had the Teryaki noodles. Both were excellent, hot and plentiful! Well done!
