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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Called in on Bank Holiday Monday. Sign outside CASH ONLY! Told by male behind the bar that the Chef had let them down, so only a limited menu! The place was stinking of bleach. We headed for the door and left rapidly!

Visited the Pant Cad Ifor for a birthday meal with family and wow what an experience. The staff were wonderful, all extremely friendly and helpful, they couldn’t do enough for us - outstanding customer service. We all ordered a variety of meats for our Sunday...roast - including beef, chicken and lamb and we all agreed unanimously that it was the most succulent and tasty meat we’d had out at a restaurant - cooked to complete perfection (you could shred the beef with your fork it was that moist). The plate came stacked with a great amount of meat, two roast potatoes and a yorkshire pudding with stuffing and a boat of gravy; then we had trays for the sides which included an outstanding homemade cauliflower and cheese as well as your typical roast sides - peas, carrots, cabbage and potatoes. All in all the food was remarkable, most definitely the best roast dinner in Merthyr and surrounding areas. Thank you so much to the staff and the chefs for a great birthday experience. Would definitely recommend and can’t wait to visit again for the next occasion.More

We stopped here after a day hiking up Pen Y Fan having first stopped at The Red Cow hoping to get a stand meal. The welcome & service here was in stark contrast to that of the Red Cow. The barmaid served us drinks and...asked if we would like to eat? We sat at a table and she brought our drinks over. The food was really good ( nothing fancy or special but great quality) my steak was probably one of the best cuts I’ve had in a long time! The barmaid/waitress worked non stop serving and cleaning and even persuaded me into having a pudding by coming up with one that wasn’t on the menu. This place looks a little dated but the staff & the food more than compensated.More

We have been checking out the area as we are moving to Ponsarn and the Pant is easily walkable from the house, we’d had a big walk so popped in for beers and a late lunch early dinner. We received a very warm welcome and...the food we chose was extremely good, good portion size and piping hot. The whole team were polite and professional, cracking service and we look forward to seeing you all again very soonMore

We spotted the tavern on our way to the railway and dropped in as we had time before the train. They had a good menu, service was quick and food was served very promptly thank goodness. Portions were 'huge' and the quality was good. You...order all drinks from the old fashion styled bar. Plenty of outside seating and a great place to relax on a hot day. Parking available on the road side.More

Look can be deceptive. It looks a bit tired and old fashion. However we were pleasantly surprised. This is our first visit and will definitely come back. Steak and Stilton pie amazing. Atmosphere lovely and staff really friendly.
