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.

Its like travelling back in time. A good thing really, the decor s of an era when you had warm welcoming pubs. The host was very nice as was the cheff. The food was a great sucess although I think my batter was beer batter...and a little bitter. Will return, thanks.More

We went for a family Sunday lunch 8 adults and 2small children we were shown to our table which was quite crammed into space while sorting out seating arrangements we asked to order drinks but told to sit down first before taking order. There was...a lot of tanks behind bar with insects in not sure on if suitable in restaurant. But on the plus side we had Sunday carvery and none of us could fault the food plenty of choice and loads of vegetables. We were told on arrival because little one was in high chair no charge for food but because she had a plate she was charged ?????. Probably would not go again but like I said food good so make up your own mindMore

Don't expect fine dining but do expect a great welcome and very reasonable prices. Excellent beer. They also do takeaway pizza (not tried).

We were staying locally and were recommended this pub as a good place to eat. We were not disappointed and ate here three times during our 10 day stay. The food is simple reasonably priced and served by attentive staff. We'll definitely return on our...next visit to the area.More

Service was spot on. Friendly calm atmosphere, everybody was polite and helpful. The landlord and landlady are very friendly and very accommodating. Can't ask for better, will use the restaurant and accommodation when I'm next in the area.

Having eaten here on numerous occasions over the last 10 years, we experienced varying standards of both food and service. Teresa and Dave have taken over since February 2017 and seem to have made a variety of improvements, including employing Paul as Barman and "front...of house". Paul was so welcoming and professional when he was faced with our group of 10 at lunchtime. We decided to eat from a special lunch menu priced at £4.95 per head plus a lovely range of proper puds priced at £3.50. All really enjoyed our pub meals of faggots, sausages, battered cod or chilli and received very attentive service. One of our party has a special dietary requirement that was catered for and we ate in bright, welcoming surroundings. We shall look forward to our next group lunch together. I noticed that they also run themed evenings such as Paella nights and a special Friday night Steak/Fish supper for two, costing £20.00 total and includes a bottle of House Wine!More

Service very slow, ordered a gluten free dessert, only to be told after I had eaten it that is was not gluten free after all. The waitress was very apologetic and upset but no word from the owner or offer of refund. Ok being coeliac...this will mean a bad stomach for a few days, but if someone had a bad allergy to something it could be far more serious.More

Wasn't open at lunchtime on Tuesday 9 August 2016 in spite of A board declaring food available from12.00 as well as website promising seven day opening lunch and evening. Very disappointed to find door locked and no apology sign.

Me and my girlfriend decided to stop in here on our way back from Pembrokeshire on our way home and it was a brilliant find. We had our dog with us so we weren't allowed inside, however it was warm enough outside so we just...sat in the smoking area where there were also tables. With it being a sunday, the only thing on offer was a sunday lunch or a broccoli bake so we ordered one of each. The broccoli bake was out of this world! I would consider driving the 2 hours back just to eat it again. The sunday lunch was also amazing and every single thing on the place was really tasty and good value for money. The pub itself just looks like your standard traditional pub but the food was so much more! Plus, the staff were all lovely which always adds to the service. Definitely recommend this place!More

This place was always my dad's favourite place and every time we visited we went here for Sunday Lunch. Home cooked and plenty of it and well within any budget. The menu is vast, service is good - possibly need to book as it's always...full. My dad has since passed on but we still visit frequently with my Step - mum and partner, not once have we had a bad meal. If you are ever around Mid Wales Llandrindod area - go here you will not be disappointedMore

We eat here as often as we can. The food is always amazing and the welcome is warm. Sunday lunch is fantastic. Linda is a fabulous cook and the prices are very reasonable. Highly recommend the Gwystre to anyone. My brother in law stayed overnight...as they do bed and breakfast too and he said it was lovely.More

We ate there twice this week. We had two finicky eaters with us; and they were delighted with the menu. The only place in a 20 mile radius of Llandrindod Wells; that served food to suit all. If you plan to eat here; and it...is either autumn / winter or early spring; where it is still cold out; call ahead to book table in front of fireplace. We didn't and regretted it. It was chilly. The food is served quickly; and every one(four of us); ate all on our plates; and there were no complaints. They have an extensive menu. They also have an extensive dessert menu. Not every thing is available on the dessert menu. The 1st night we ate there; they had a pavlova dessert; BUT on the next night; it was gone. So, no sweet on night two! The first night; the server was a a funny; older guy; who was a joker. The second time we atr there; there was a younger guy; who was cheerful and smiled alot.More
