“Hidden gem”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Tucked away in the back street of Rhiwbina, you’d never know this pub was here unless you were looking. There is a plenty of parking around the back where there is a large, pleasant beer garden. Inside is a good sized bar with the restaurant in the slate floor extension at the side.

This was my third time eating here so between us we've covered off most of the menu - from mixed grill to burgers and toad in the hole. We keep coming back so it can’t be too bad! We’ve always found the food to be tasty with well sized portions, no complaints.

Service is friendly and food always arrives quickly.

Great location, a good atmosphere, tasty grub at reasonable prices. Look out for the early specials.

“Excellent food & service”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Always excellent food and service. We enjoy Tuesday night curry night with an excellent choice of curries and good value for money. I celebrated my 50th birthday meal with family and friends and enjoyed a great night with an awesome rib-eye steak !

“Best steak i've ever had!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Went here on Saturday with my family as a last minute option. I was very impressed. they had a lovely range of local ales and beers. I ordered the T-bone steak med-rare. It was honestly the nicest piece of steak i've ever had. The waiter knew exactly where it was sourced, the farmers and cows name and when it had come in to them. Very impressive. I've worked in restaurants for the last 5 years so i'm very observant and picky but this was lovely. Very cosy, very tasty and excellent service.
