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.

On our recent holiday at Rock Point CL we eat at this great pub three times! First was a takeaway Sunday lunch which was simply brilliant and then an evening meal plus another takeaway! All our dishes were perfectly cooked and we received a wonderfully...warm welcome each time. Excellent pint as well. We can't wait to return!More

Amazing new menu 🤩 We've waited patiently for a few weeks to try the new menu. Pork chops are my new favourite choice. But the posh fish and chips and sweet and sour chicken were also another level. Our little boy thoroughly enjoyed having the...meatballs. The only complaint is there simply wasn't enough dauphinoise potatoes! Highly recommend the Royal Arms for an amazing meal, in a local pub environmentMore

I went for the new sweet and sour chicken with egg fried rice, really delicious! The wine is...really nice too! Definitely recommend this quaint country pub! Staff are really friendly tooMore

The Royal Arms has featured prominently in our weekend, having used it for a surprise 50th gathering on Saturday and again for Sunday Roast the next day. Claire and Pete are fabulous hosts, and Claire prepared an amazing grazing table for Saturday night with cold...meats, dips, fish dishes, pasta and loads more! Sunday Roast was also excellent, and I maintain they do the best cauliflower cheese ever (they even let me take the leftovers home!) Thank you The Royal Arms for helping us have such a special weekend. Highly recommended!More

We love this pub not only for the hearty, scrumptious food that is always home cooked and good but we also love the landlord and landlady. Nothing else needed to be said. You must try it!

We were travelling fr the midlands to Pen Y Fan and stopped along the way for some food. After not being able to get in where we’d planned to (thank goodness!) my husband found this place on Google. Put in a quick call to check...they were doing food still and they were. They didn’t take details from us but we said we’d be along shortly. 10 minutes later we walked through the door to one of the warmest welcomes and most beautiful, genuine smiles! Not only that but in the the busy little bar area, a table had been prepared for us! We ordered some drinks and 2 of their Wagu burgers. Oh. My. God. I’ve never eaten anything so good! The lady who brought it out, I think was the land lady, was wonderfully friendly too. This pub was one of those no frills places with quirky signs on the walls and honesty boxes for local eggs. And I cannot wait to return. It just goes to show if you, if you do the simple things perfectly, you can beat the most high profile establishments! I cannot recommend this place highly enough.More

We were staying at Llangrove and went to the Royal Arms on the first evening and were made very welcome by the young lady on the bar. The atmosphere was good and nothing was too much trouble. Our meal was excellent. The landlady who also...cooked our meal came over and spoke to us and was very nice, friendly and welcoming. Similarly, the next evening, excellent food, welcome and atmosphere. We had Sunday roast and that too was lovely. Home cooked to perfection. Claire, the landlady, who also does alot of the cooking, was a great host, having a word with diners about their meals and their day. Towards the end of our stay we went to the quiz evening. We didn't win but again were made mist welcome. Well kept beer was a favourite and even our (well behaved) dog was always welcome. This is a gem of a pub in a rural village and a real part of the community. We hope to call in again sometime. Wishing Claire and Peter the very best.More

Had two takeaways from here both delicious. Sunday roasts vege and non vege and a waghu burger and Buddha bowl both absolutely delicious. Generous portions and a great mix of ingredients. Would definitely go again and recommend to others.

We came to stay in Llangarron for the weekend to celebrate my sisters 40th. We chose the Royal Arms a head time for the birthday meal on the Saturday evening. Brilliant communication via email prior all set for our visit. When we came into the...pub to drop the cake off the land lady was very welcoming. When we returned on the evening the pub looked cosy but was cold. The starters came out they looked and tasted great, we had salt and pepper squid, and my sister had chicken gougons. The main course however was not so good unfortunately. 6 out of 14 had steak, 3 steaks had a funny taste and smelt cheesy. We highlighted this to the staff and she took away the plates, the land lady/ cook came out advised she and the staff tasted them and they were fine. She offered to cook the remaining 2, but 3 meals were returned, no alternative was offered and we were still charged for 3 meals that weren't eaten. When we returned to our accomodation we Googled steak that smells of cheese and its says "Steak Smells Like Cheese If you want to learn how to know if beef is bad, rely mainly on your sense of smell. If it smells rotten and rancid, discard it right away. You may also notice that steak smells a bit like cheese when it's cooking. This happens primarily to dry-aged steaks from the produced lactic acid that results from the dry-aging process. This can cause a taste and smell that is similar to blue cheese.' As long as it’s cooked to the right temperature, 160 degrees Fahrenheit, and without too much clarified butter, the bacteria should be killed off, making your steak safe to eat.' One of our party ate all of his steak and subsequently spent the evening throwing up. And further 2 in the party were up all night with diarrhea. Had we not have been charged for the 3 steaks we hadn't eaten, it may have gone some way to amelioration the issue that arose. It came across more that we were causing issue which wasnt the case, and later came across that the staff seemed unhappy with our presence. Needless to say we were hugely disappointed and couldn't recommend.More

We were staying in Llangrove for the weekend with friends and wanted to book somewhere local for Sunday lunch. I had had a good email exchange with the landlady prior to our visit, advising of our GF dietary needs and the fact we’d have our...two little dogs with us. We were given a very warm welcome and had been allocated a nice table at the far end of the seating area, perfect for our dogs. Being GF, my husband and I couldn’t sample the local Wye Valley ale but our friends did and said it was excellent and ‘very well kept’. Hubby and I didn’t lose out, though, and were able to enjoy a delicious Portuguese red wine with our meal. As for the food - well what to say? Just brilliant. The provision made for GF was exceptional in a Sunday roast: cauliflower cheese, gravy, stuffing and Yorkshire puds all adapted for us. Huge thanks to all staff at The Royal Arms for helping to make our time away so lovely and memorable.More
