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.

Was very disappointed. First of all we realised the hygiene scoring was a 1? That says there is a problem which has not been adhered or addressed. Food was ok, 2 roast pots each, service was good. No atmosphere. Never again and we are local....We took guests and they were not happy when they saw the rating, it was embarrassing for us as the quality was poor. We should have left. Place needs a good scrub.More

The young waiter on his first night was lovely. The young man clearing our table was very polite. Our starters and main courses were delicious. However, waiting an hour and a half to have our table cleared after our main and no offer of a...dessert menu was a bit disappointing. 3 hours for a meal means we won't returnMore

Just enjoyed a super meal here. Hadn’t booked but made very welcome and sat at a table in the snug by a lovely log fire. Staff were very friendly and the food was excellent - great quality and very generous portions. Will definitely return.

We went to the Ffostrasol Arms today for a drink and upon entering were met with an abrupt older lady with short hair and glasses who quite clearly needs a lesson in manners and decorum! We ordered a drink and to be quite honest, were...made to feel very unwelcome. Whether it was because we were outsiders to the area or because were tourists, I can't be sure. I suspect it was because we were English speaking as she was pointedly talking Welsh to a local in front of us. Either way, we felt very uncomfortable. We finished our drink and went as soon as possible. Avoid avoid whilst this lady is there. It is a shame as it's a nice venue with clean facilities and ample parking. We have been there in the evening on a different occasion and the staff were lovely but due to this poor experience today, we will not be visiting again.More

Visited the Ffostrasol Arms for the first time while visiting West Wales. I ordered the sea bass with vegetables and new potatoes, it came out pipping hot and a generous serving, it arrived just 15 minutes after placing the order. I couldn't fault this tasty...dish, it was perfectly seasoned. I would recommend this pub to anyone . My partner was just as impressed with his Lamb shank. 10/10 Delicious.More
