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.

Big group of us here for dinner. There was almost 20 of us, we had preordered and the service was excellent. Food was served efficiently and with friendly service. I had the Chunky Monkey Gammon, which was a feast of a dinner. As a group...we had most of the menu. The Tair Bill burger was a firm favourite and the curry merrily tucked into. The dessert menu was happily tucked into. Great dinner and excellent friendly service. A popular venue ensure you book.More

Stopped in for dinner with two friends last night and I must say I was blow away. Not only was the food absolutely excellent - quality ingredients, hearty portions and freshly cooked. So reasonably priced as well given the quality. But the service was incredible....Everyone went out of their way to make sure we had a pleasant time, nothing was too much trouble and all the while we were kept in drinks and friendly bar room chat from genuine decent people. What more could you ask for, really. It's exceedingly rare you encounter a pub that can nail every detail well yet do so with a natural ease and it is for that reason I would highly recommend a visit.More

Came here today for my second Xmas meal, OMG!!! Amazing doesn’t even come close, the whole place was beautifully decorated like Santa’s Grotto, the food was 100% slot on, so delicious, massive portions, we had 5 courses, such value for money, we even had a...box provided to take home what we couldn’t manage. Totally Autism friendly, we have a son with Autism who struggles with food, they catered for all of his needs, even checked with each course how he wanted it presented, (chopped or whole/ hot or cold etc) why does nobody else do this? Great disabled toilet with baby changing facilities too. Fantastic family run business. Big mumma would be so proud ❤️❤️❤️More

Visited last week. Had booked a table in the restaurant. Our table was by the window , with a beautiful view of Pen y Fan. A very warm welcome when we arrived. A great choice on the menu , I chose the Pie of the...day which was steak & Ale washed down with a delicious pint of Butty Bach & my Mother ordered the Cod. Food arrived promptly and there was plenty of it! The pie was one of the nicest I have ever tasted and was full of meat. The beer battered cod was cooked too perfection. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough, food was great, staff attentive & friendly & we shall look forward to our next visit.More

Visited the restaurant with a small party of friends. We chose the Christmas menu. Great choices and great price. The food was excellent and lots of it. The hosts and service were wonderful. Friendly from the time you stepped through the door. Checked with us...throughout the meal and although the place was busy we were attended to throughout. A lovely festive and homely atmosphere. Heard lots of lovely comments from other tables too. Many thanks to Kate and her family and all on the team. A great start to the festive season and we will be back. This is a dog-friendly pub too. A major bonus. Thank you all.More

What a great find this pub was for us!!! Emailed Katie at short notice for a table of 13 and she was so accommodating with plenty of emails going back and forth...had a very wet and windy walk and popped in for a quick pint...or 2 before getting changed and came back for our evening meal. Food was superb!! and big potions!!! we all left there that evening full and satisfied. The girls that waited on us, Kayleigh, Jasmine and Willow, we all so helpful, polite and nothing was too much for them - a credit to their parents for sure. Food and drinks all came very quickly and always with a smile. Such a warm welcome and the Christmas decs up made our day too.... One of the nicest country pubs we have been to. Will definitely go back next time we are in Wales and i would strongly recommend this pub to everyone. Dave and the Crew from Stebbing, EssexMore
