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.

I visit the Dillwyn Arms regularly for breakfast with old friends. The restaurant is a traditional British pub restaurant, no frills but clean and tidy. The menu has several options for breakfast, I usually opt for the Dillwyn Breakfast. After a short wait, the food...arrived, it's clean, not greasy and well presented. The food is always fresh and hot. Teas,coffees and juices are available for unlimited self service. My breakfast consisted of 2 bacon, 1 sausage, 1 egg, 1 black pudding, 1 hash brown, half a grilled tomato, a portion of beans and toast. All this for £6 (as of 22/02/24), pretty good value. What I really liked is that you're not rushed to vacate the table. Great placeMore

Have called for breakfast several times now. I’ve had the Dillwyn and the Welsh breakfasts. Dillwyn is the best value. Today I had the mushroom and onion omelette as I thought that one would have the least calories lol. I’ve got to give special mention...the bacon which is always delicious. You can help yourself to juices and tea/coffee which is definitely a positive. Will we come back? Yes definitely. In fact I think we’ll try the Sunday lunch there.More

Great food fantastic service warm and welcoming we will definitely be back, the waitress was very helpful and had a full understanding of the menu and the contents of different dishes The price was on the top end of the weekly family meal budget unfortunately...its not visable to do it weekly but maybe we could be back monthly but that's not the restaurants fault that's more just to do with the general cost of living at the momentMore

Four of us had an evening meal. Chips were homemade and chunky. Busy with locals eating . Lovely outside area, with views over the river. Too chilly the evening we visited to sit out though

First time visit, lovely outside decking area, very tranquil by the little stream and not much noise from the road. Lovely and clean ladies toilet which is a big plus for me. Had mushroom carbonara and asked for extra prawns, absolutely delicious (didn't matter that...carbonara was pasta shaped not the traditional spaghetti), washed down with bottle of wine. Felt comfortable sitting on the decking with my own company. Young girl who served me was very pleasant and had a nice cheery smiling face, another big plus for me. Highly recommend this place and I will be back to try more from your lovely menu. Keep up the good service xMore

I am sorry, I have no idea. As there is a good restaurant they probably do Christmas food. As to price, I cannot help.
