It is a nice traditional pub on the side of the Garth mountain and as mentioned previously, parking can be very difficult because of the narrow road leading to the pub.
We had a meal recently - chicken wrapped in bacon with fries and vegetables. The chicken arrived on a large white plate with what looked like two thin slices of lemon grass and some sauce. The fries and vegetables arrived in seperate bowls.
While the chicken was lovely and the fries 'chunky', the disappointment was the amount of vegetables on offer. We had 3 florets between 2 people and not a huge amount of french beans and carrots.
For £16 per person, the portion could and should have been bigger. I kept thinking perhaps another side dish was on the way. There wasn't.
There's a pub in nearby Whitchurch (The Hollybush), where for about £4.00, you can have a carvery with a selection of meats and load up your plate with as many vegetables you can fit on your plate. Granted, it's not got the same reputation as the Gwaelod y Garth Inn but the food is good and you (more than) feel you have value for money.
