Reviewed 16 August 2014

We dined here last night, a treat before coming home. We stayed in site at the bottom of the lane in a log cabin. We did not stay at the pub's lodgings. We ordered the lamb burger which was soooo tasty. My husband ordered the salmon which although he really enjoyed he said the hollandaise sauce had split a little bit. They had ran out of children's novelty pot ice creams too which disappointed our children as they had just seen other children eating them on our arrival. This during school holidays could have maybe been thought out a little better? It is a really nice pub, great view of mountains from one side of the pub too which was lovely. Staff friendly enough. Prices reasonable. Very clean. Overall very nice indeed, glad we made the decision to frequent this place for our last evening treat.

Room Tip: did not stay sorry

The quality of service at the inn was excellent, even in busy periods. We found the staff very attentive and would bend over backwards to help. The food was very good, as we ate there most nights and tried most things on the bar menu, i honestly couldn't fault it at all. The prices are very reasonable given that it has a small catchment area, namely the log cabin village. Could have done with another hand-pull on the bar, preferably a local beer. All in all we found it a pleasant experience. The views are pretty stunning from the beer garden aswell.

Group of us visited last week, food very poor - fish pie ?? More like fish soup, runny and overpriced. We were all pretty hungry by the time it all arrived via poor and slow service. The pub was pretty busy and the staff fairly scarce. Overpriced and could be so much better given location and what is, on the face of it, an attractive old building. It;s the only place for a few miles so beggars can't be choosers I suppose - and the people that run it know it.

Given that there is literally no alternative for miles the Rhiw Goch is well worth a visit. We ate there on three consecutive evenings and were more that satisfied with our meals from a typical pub grub menu which were of good quality and proportion. What was noticeable were a number of weekender hooray henry type customers who were loud and obnoxious, oblivious to people around them and in particular displaying arrogance towards the mainly young staff who I found were excellent. The location and views from the pub are stunning and I would recommend anybody thinking of trying it to ignore the petty and unhelpful negative reviews.

Brilliant restaurant. Fantastic food. And for the person who said that the spagetti bolognase is £12 or so, it's actually £9.50 and it's a very big portion. The bar staff never swear and never give free drinks to people. Would recommend this place to everyone.

I used the restaurant of this inn whilst staying in the nearby holiday village. Considering this village (and the inn) are very isolated it was very good to have such a facility nearby. We had a pleasant meal and have nothing to complain about considering the remote location.

Room Tip: We only used restaurant.

We ordered 1 lamb shank, 1 lasagne, 2 surf and turf with Stilton & a Stilton sauce.

Total price £65 not includeing drinks.

Charged extra for Stilton sauce which should of been part of the meal, spotted the error and returned to the bar to be assured we hadn't paid extra.

Then told they only had enough for Stilton sauce not enough for the steak or visa versa, this was fine we opted for the sauce.

Meals arrived lamb was good, lasagne was Cannelloni, and steaks overcooked.

Cannelloni taken away and five mins later a lasagne appeared with 1 layer of pasta a slither of meat and a greasy spodge of cheese and sauce on the top, the staff did offer to change the meal but at this point we just wanted to eat together.

We asked for a print out of the bill to show that we had been charged £3.50 extra for the steak sauces, and nothing else really offered in regard to no Stilton, we got our £3.50 back and got out of there.

Overall it seemed we didn't really matter as they didn't know us as were not regular customers, won't eat there again, Shame really as I've been staying at my friends cabin for 30 years now and I won't eat their again.
