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.

Cinio dydd Sul arbennig a digon ohono. Cig eidion wedi ei goginio mewn Guinness a twrci arwahan. Blasus dros ben. Byddwn yn ôl heb os nac onibai. Had a hearty Sunday lunch with beef & turkey. What a feast cooked to perfection by a chef...who's passionate about his food. All the staff were really nice and did their utmost to give us a great eating experience. This is not your run of the mill Sunday roast, this is great local food cooked with some serious thought and skill behind it ! No more bland food..... check it out.More

We went to Y plough inn for pizza night. And we were not disappointed!! The food and service exceeded all expectations. This is an ideal taste of the welsh countryside in both literal and metaphoric forms, with food that warms you right through and smiley,...welsh service that does too. I would recommend the pizza night and the Sunday lunch as we have visited several times (with more to follow!) Diolch yn fawr i bawb yn Y Plough! :)More

Now, I heard some rather good things about this place from neighbours and locals in Carmarthenshire. Unfortunately, I was not even given the chance to see if these were accurate. This is written on behalf of a friend (though I was present) who is so...upset and confounded by the behaviour from this restaurant that we will never be going there and advising all those who need recommendations to avoid eating here at all costs. After deciding to go to a restaurant for her husband's birthday, she decided to enquire for a table. She filled out the booking form which, at the end, clearly states 'request booking'. After this, she received no information or confirmation from the restaurant and assumed there had been a communication error. This happened with multiple other places whereupon she has received no confirmation or even acknowledgment that a booking was made. She messaged again on Facebook today looking for a table to book this week, and not minutes later received a phone call from a woman who was grossly disrespectful and attacked her personal character. Accusing her of purposefully wanting them to lose money and being incredibly rude, my friend was nothing but apologetic and sorry for the possible mistake despite not having had confirmation. After the woman's absolutely abhorrent and disgusting accusations that my friend was an 'annoyance', she immediately, without looking for any kind of explanation why this may have occurred or consideration that this was a problem on their behalf, outright denied her request for a belated birthday dinner this coming friday. After this, she scoured her emails, went through the spam and trash and all recent phone messages trying to hide her distraught that she may have been the problem. What did she find, even with my help? Nothing. I encouraged her to phone back, which she eventually did, and was told the woman who originally phoned my friend was unavailable. A man answered the phone and my friend explained the situation, to which he immediately and once again went on the offensive and tried to blame her for not searching through spam (which she had, me beside her!!). To be honest, he's probably sick of handling angry calls from patrons if that is how they treat people THEY have not managed to effectively communicate with. He also said that their food was made in advance which meant by us apparently not turning up to the booking made them lose 'significant' amounts of money. To be honest, if they are making entire meals that far in advance with nobody ordering them, I doubt I would even want the food anyway. So, either their food is made hours in advance and then served to the patron, or they were lying. Either is a bad look for the business and not at all how I would wish my restaurant to treat their patrons. Luckily, all their interaction did was compound a negative view of the restaurant. I will not be eating here and encourage any others to call when booking (save yourselves the lack of communication and then awfully rude random calls when somebody is TRYING to get in contact to eat at YOUR restaurant!) At the end of the day, we're paying for the meal. I cannot fathom that this a way to treat anyone. Totally and completely unprofessional and none of us have ever been treated like this by a restaurant. I think people should consider very carefully if they want to eat at a place that makes such unprofessional and disgusting personal attacks.More

Had a superb meal at The Plough Inn, Felingwm on Saturday evening. Loved the stress free delicious one choice menu, great owners and staff and dog friendly too! The only place we have ever been offered 'seconds', not that we really needed it the potions...were so generous! Will definitely be recommending to our guests at Cambrian Cottages and Harry, our cocker spaniel, says thank you too!More

The food at the pub is a bit different to most places. The night we visited there was one choice of main which was beef cooked on the barbecue. Everybody arrives at pretty much the same time and the food is brought out when it...is ready. I enjoyed the starter, although it didn't really fit with the main course. The beef off the barbecue was cooked very nicely. We didn't really like the vegetables that were served with the beef. The staff were very friendly and attentive and there is a good range of different beers to go with the foodMore

What a fantastic find even though i only live seven miles away. The warmest welcome you could wish from owners and staff.A real pub with gourmet food. No Michelin stars but worth 5. The food which consisted of a grazing starter followed by 16 hour...cooked beef rib for three and a garlic free steak cooked over a wood fire for one. Fantastic, every plate licked clean. The chef introduced us to each plate and joined the customers when the kitchen had closed. Superb meal and fantastic evening.More

We had the warmest of welcomes from the hosts, who were happy to chat in Welsh and in English. We had a delicious locally made cider in bottles, and good hot coffee (it was a freezing day). The food was plentiful and extremely tasty, especially...the homemade focaccia and venison ragu as part of the sharing starter and the slow-cooked beef rib main. All the puddings sounded delicious, but we couldn't manage one! Byddwn yn ol i gael pwdin y tro nesa! Diolch yn fawr iawn.More

Went with local friends who highly recommended this pub experience. Probably wouldn’t have stumbled across this on our own. It was a fantastic meal little choice but that meant we had loads of small samples of everything so no decisions and no plate envy of...what other people had ordered. Every bit of food was delicious and we couldn’t finish everything so generous as well. Probably not for every week but special occasions, friends over, romantic treat. A great experience and different from the majority of pubs. Would highly recommend.More

We were reccomended this lovely Inn by the owner of the cottage we rented. The food is unique and out of this world. We went on a Saturday evening, when there is a set menu. (Booking Highly Reccomended). The friendly helpful hosts, talked us through...the fine food they offered. The food is served hot from the kitchen and is flavoursome, eyecatching and moreish. We tucked into 3 types of meat. Beef slow cooked in onions and guiness for over 12 hours, Ham Hock cooked in Honey and Mustard and Chicken cooked in lemon and herbs. The hosts came round to offer second helpings, which we readilly accepted. The choice of desserts was excellent, though I only had room for Icecream, my husband tucked into Cheesecake. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, with most of the other people in the room being locals who dine on a regular basis. We will definitely be returning.More
