Friendly place, bit daft that the vegan curry is served with a naan bread that isn’t suitable for vegans even though I asked for a vegan curry. Reasonably priced though and the staff friendly. Place was full at 2pm on Wednesday so book a table

It was worth going a few miles out of our way to eat here, as it was as good as almost all the reviews say. Friendly service, nothing was too much trouble, and the food was good, as well as being good value. Recommended.

When I visit Merthyr I often come to The Aberglais for lunch. It is a really welcoming place, very busy. Good value for money and very good service. The staff are efficient and friendly.

bit of a shock that no Sunday lunch but everyone enjoyed the freedom of the normal menu, good food but lots of the menu were out of stock, took about 3 times to complete the order

I've never had a disappointing meal here. The portions are generous and the menu varied. Even weekday lunchtimes it is very popular so make sure you book. Delicious mushroom stroganoff today. Only criticism is I couldn't find room for a dessert!

Booked table but no room in restaurant so we ate in bar which was fine. The food was lovely and generous portions. We had three courses and could not fault any. We will be definitely be going back. Friendly staff and excellent service.

Beautiful meal in relaxed surroundings. They did a table for us in the bar as the restaurant was busy. Meal delicious. Generous portions. Friendly staff. My friends , who are notoriously hard to please as they are from London , were extremely impressed also.
