We offer our famous hand pull bitters alongside a wide range of draught ales and drinks. We have an indoor children's play area so parents can dine and watch their children having fun.With a secure outside child's play area, ample outdoor seating and Large car park we welcome customers to enjoy what we have to offer. Alongside of this, we have a 27 room lodge, from family rooms, doubles and ground floor accessible rooms.

We had a family meal while collecting my daughter from University, it was extremely busy but the staff were on the ball, the food was tasty and the portions very generous.

It's a Marston's pub. Need I say more? You could be anywhere in the U.K. Everything is what you'd expect. Price and quality of food is fine and the service is much better than average. And in Aberystwyth you're not spoilt for options. The main reason for using it is that there's plenty of free parking and if you want to meet someone it's easy to find.Having said that the exit is daft and requires a 400 metre drive away from the main road.

For those unfamiliar with Aberystwyth ( Aber to locals), the name comes from the immense clouds of starling that gather under the pier at certain times of the year.

1st off the Asian bar man was rude, slower than slow and was chatting away while i was waiting for a drink for 10 mins. Food portions were small for the value and made 4 of us ill the next day and the following day after that!! just overall very very dissapointed with the place after all the hype. Will never go back

We called here on Saturday 2nd Nov on the off chance that there was a table available. Nice receptionist said about 15 min wait but showed us to a table where we could have a drink whilst we waited. Not a long wait and we were given a table and an absolutely charming waitress called Catrin. Had starter (to share) of mozzarella & tomato balls,only 3 but not too small and enough for us. My main was 'lite bite fish, chips & mushy peas' more than enough or me. Hubby had ham (he said it was lovely) & eggs (2), chips and peas. We were stuffed so just had a coffee each. Try the gingerbread latte coffee. Yum. The whole bill came to under £23. Catrin worked tirelessly, even to putting logs on the lovely open fire. All of the staff were wonderful and work very hard. Well done all of you!!!!!!! We will defiantly return. Very family friendly so will take 2 yr old grand-daughter next time. - lots to keep her amused.
