My wife and I have eaten at the Gwaelod Inn on several occasions and, to be fair, the food has been pretty good, if a little pricey, good service and marvellous ale.

Having visited this restaurant a couple of times in the past, we decided to entertain 4 friends who were visiting South Wales. From previous experiences we had no qualms about taking our friends and we were not let down. The food and service were quite superb and very reasonably priced. Definitely no hesitation about further visits.

excellent pub and staff good choice of ales and wines, food is terrific and prompt even though the restaurant was full, good choice of meals and specials, parking is a problem with only a small car park at the rear parking on the road in front of the pub is possible but very narrow in places.

Good choice of hand pumps weekly. Great traditional pub with great staff. Food is good and consistent although a little overpriced for what it is

Booked for a pre rugby lunch and food and service was excellent as always. The food order was taken promptly with our drinks brought to the table. Our food was piping hot and waiting staff very polite and attentive. Can't go wrong with this place.
