“Oh how I wish I had read TripAdvisor”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Popped in here for a lunch the sign outside advertises very cheap food. I should have known better you get what you pay for. The pub I guess caters for the student out drinking on an evening or stag parties, indeed a stag party came in whilst we were there. Another indicator that it wouldnt be a good pub for food. The tables were sticky and the upholstery on the seats was very dirty and very stained.
The female behind the bar was friendly enough and the place is light and airy but dirty. The toilets were upstairs and my partner came back down having not used them as they like something out of trainspotting.
The food my burger was okay but the chips were tired and looked they had been lying around for a week and there were not many of them. They were obviously the value type chips from the cheapest wholesaler. My partners noodles had some gelatine type substance in them and also a short dark hair. This was pointed out to the manager and he went to consult the chef, he came back to inform us that the noodles were packed in the substance and he didnt mention the hair. He did however apologise and offer us free coffees. We at this time just left, do yourself a favour do not eat here ever.

“A DISGRACE TO ABERYSTWYTH”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

Popped in for a casual drink on a quiet Friday evening to be totally ignored by 3 members of staff at the bar that didn't know what there purpose was on this planet!! After waiting 20minutes we had to ask can we be served!! Toilets are dirty, the same cubicle for the last 3 YEARS has been without a door on it!!!! We decided to sit in the window and there seem to be a mountain of salt on the floor that the staff enjoyed walking through!! All we can say is it's a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT TO THE TOWN!!

“Burnt!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

Six o'clock and a quiet Thursday . .Two of us went for a quiet evening meal . .Ordered Lasagna £6:95 each . .Tiny pieces of lasagna arrived (which later turned out to be a blessing!) with 2 small slices of garlic bread (the frozen kind ) for nearly £7 not even a side salad ! And to top it all the Lasagna was burnt and tasted of nothing but burnt meat and cheese ..felt for hours later that i may have burnt black bits on my teeth. .Very disappointed! Since Stonegate took this place over the menu is boring . .Prices are way too high and food standards terrible . .As a regular customer previously i will not be revisiting .
