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.

A lovely cosy little country pub with first class food. Couldn't recommend this beautiful little place enough. Great food, well presented and delicious. Would recommend the Beetroot starter and the salt and pepper pheasant bites 👌🏻The service was great too with friendly staff and we...had a lovely, cosy table next to a warm fire. No faults. Great night celebrating our anniversary and will 100% be returning for every other anniversary hopefully 🥂 Thank you.More

After the flood, the pubrestaurant have pulled out all the stops to get operating again and they've done a great job. It's good to be back! We had Sunday lunch today. just a main course and some drinks. The roast beef dinner was perfect as...usual, just the right amount of pink in the meat and fresh, delicious, perfectly seasoned veg. I was tempted, but there was something new on the menu - tempura battered chicken chilli burger. - Oh it was stunning. Not your usual Sunday lunch, but perfect!More

A very warm welcome from friendly and efficient staff. Nice, clean comfortable interior. A good range of dishes at reasonable prices and all well presented and good quality. The house Malbec was superb and a perfect accompaniment to the superb bacon chop I had. My...guest enjoyed a very good battered cod with the usual accompaniments and this was also of a very high standard. Portions were generous and satisfying. All in all a great place for a meal on any occasion.More

Whilst staying in the local area, we visited the Bull and Heifer for dinner on Saturday evening having booked the table on line a few days earlier. The public bar area was very busy with locals (a good sign) who were very friendly but we...were served quickly and shown to our table in the restaurant area. The pub is a very old building and has been decorated in a manner very sympathetic to the age of the place with a great atmosphere. The food was excellent, so good infact that we booked in for Sunday lunch the following day, which was also extremely good. The staff are very friendly and efficient, food was great, drinks were good. There was nothing we didn't like and just wish more local pubs were run like this. Just one minor word of warning though, the ladies toilets are upstairs, so those with mobility issues might want to check with the pub if there is an accessible loo available.More

Rump steak absolutely cooked to perfection. Poor selection of lagers. Cider very good. Definitely worth booking to avoid disappointment

Can’t speak highly enough about this pub, warm welcoming friendly atmosphere, the staff are the best, the food is absolutely amazing, living in South wales we have a huge choice of restaurants near us in Cardiff and we have tried many but nothing has come...close this place. luckily for us we have family living in the village they know we have to visit here when we stay and quite a few times. Just to add a venue in a small village near us won best pub/restaurant in Wales the bull and hiefer beats it hands down.More

I’m a regular and the Bull never disappoints. Always a pleasure to dine there and it’s a highlight for family and friends visiting us from south Wales. They nail everything on the menu. Portion size, freshness, taste, quality, presentation. Always bang on. The management and...staff are a pleasure and they seem genuinely pleased to serve you. It’s difficult to call out any menu highlights, because everything is so good, but for me the beef, lamb kofta and chicken burgers are stunning. The loaded fries are melt in your mouth amazing. Both the bar tariff and menu prices are more than reasonable considering cost increases and inflation. Highly recommended for any occasion.More

Visited on the way home from a holiday with my partner and son. Lovely little place, and the food!!! Best chips i think ive ever had. My son has autism and food is a huge challenge for him, but not at this place. He inhaled...his meal and even ate ice cream for the first time ever!! (It was seriously very good ice cream). We were joking saying we could come back for date night although it would be a 5 hour round trip.. i dont think i was joking. Very popular and i definitely see why! Worth every penny, id have paid a lot more. Will be returning when we next book our break in Wales!More

Nice little village pub with plenty of outdoor seating and a restaurant. The locals in the bar were all super friendly and the staff working could not have been more helpful or nice. The food was very good, as was the jug cocktail! It’s understandable...pretty busy, so I would recommend booking ahead.More
