Would like to thank the landlord and regulars for welcoming us in on New Years Eve at such short notice. A World War 2 themed charity event was enjoyed by all and with sandwiches and a lovely casserole in with the ticket price. Our accompanying dog had a lot of the sausages ! Thanks for an enjoyable evening.

We have visited this pub quite a few times, both to eat and to just have a drink. We have always been greeted with friendly service. Food wise, it is well priced, very tasty and good size portions. I highly recommend it!

We decided to take the kids out for tea after a hard days work. The landlord was very accommodating upon our arrival and even assisted us bringing in the little ones. The menu is quite varied and also reasonably priced. Our order was as follows: 1) Home baked ham with parsley sauce, boiled new potatoes and peas & Diet Coke.... More

We ate here 3 times during a week's holiday - we had 3 children with us and were all made very welcome! On the last night it was one of the children's birthdays and the landlord was very happy for us to bring in a birthday cake. We would certainly recommend the Tafarn y Bont for good food at a...

Visited this little gem of a pub today which is not too far away from where I live. As usual there was a very good atmosphere and a roaring log fire on the go, the landlord and staff made us feel at home and in no time at all we were sat down food ordered and drinks on the table.... More

My dad recommended the fish and chips here, so we had a take away last Friday. The price deal was £2 off per portion, so I paid £12.90 for both.......what an absolute bargain that turned out to be! The food was on a par with Rick Stein's. The fish portion was large and beautifully cooked to perfection, the handcut chunky... More

We arrived at 9:15 pm for some food during our narrow boat mini break. They stopped serving food at 9 pm but the landlord was great and sorted us out with some very delicious food. Just what we needed! The pub itself was very inviting and the locals were very friendly!

Arrived from boat on the canal just before 2.00 pm, aware of the 2.30 closing time only to be told that we were too late to order food half an hour before closing time, even though this was not quite the case. Even when asked if they could rustle up just a sandwich we were met with a blank response... More

Close to the canal, where we had a hired narrow-boat, and we came on a lovely sunny day, sitting out in the beer-garden to the rear of the pub. The beer-garden could be improved but with limited passing tourists may not be worth spending too much money on; we enjoyed a chat with a few locals and their dogs. The... More
