Reviewed 2 May 2013

I stayed at this pub for 2 nights in April 2013 with 3 colleagues. The staff were very pleasant and friendly, 10/10, but the accommodation was dirty and poorly maintained. So poor, that my 3 colleagues would not stay for the second night and checked themselves into another hotel.

As you'll see from the pictures I've uploaded along with this review, a lot of the issues could be easily resolved.

The wall directly behind the bed above the pillows was stained a yellowy/brown colour from where people heads had been resting, the wallpaper was peeling in a number of places, the light pull-cord was probably once white but had turned a nasty shade of brown, the carpet had all kinds of stains and filth on it, and the lightshades were thick with dust like I've never seen.

If you match the standard of the rooms with your high standard of hospitality I'm sure you'll be on to a winner.

We are very sorry to read that you were disappointed with your recent stay with us. We appreciate your comments and agree that room 5 is in need of redecoration and you will have noticed that we have started this process as the room has new furniture, a new flat screen T.V. and a new bathroom adjoining. The remainder of the redecoration had been planned but we were not able to complete it before your stay. Following your comments we will not use this room again until the redecoration is completed. We thank you for your comments on the hospitality offered by our staff and assure you that we do take note of all reviews.

Nice central location in the village, real fire friendly staff and real ales.
We had food one evening and it was nicely cooked and reasonable value.
We had the Queen Anne suite which was a bigger room with en-suite and bags of character. However, if you plan on sleeping before the bar closes, then avoid this room - it is immediately above the bar and very noisy. Not worth paying the extra for this room unless you are deaf !

Room Tip: Avoid the Queen Anne suite unless you are prepared to stay up drinking till the bar closes - just to...

As my local I've been using the Goat for years and thought I should write a review. Living in the area I've never stayed there myself but friends who have always seem happy especially with the welcome.
As a pub the beer quality is excellent (in the Good Beer Guide) and the restaurant provides simple but very good food - I can highly recommend the antipaso starter, the home made pies and the cheese board, but having said that I've enjoyed almost everything I've had.
The main bar has very comfortable leather sofas a real fire and great atmosphere, I can't think of may better places to nurse a pint with friends on a winters Sunday afternoon

Making our way west to Llanbedr we were beaten by the snow. Fortunately we came across The Goat. After initially being told they were fully booked we setup to sleep in the car. Then after about half an hour we had a tap on the window inviting us in as a room had been specially made available.
A great pub, great welcome from everyone. Will definitely call again!

Greeted by very friendly and helpful young staff who were serving behind the bar. This is an old and subsequently quirky hotel with a good atmosphere. A popular restaurant as well as people having drinks at the bar. The premises is very clean. However it is not so good as a place to stay as the fixtures, fittings, beds and pillows are poor. The floors are uneven and everything shakes and rattles. There was a lot of noise until around midnight. Again breakfast was average.

We paid £60 for B&B which was a bit overpriced for the room. It needs a coat of paint. Some of the wallpaper pealing off the walls. Having said that the hosts were very welcoming and friendly. In a quiet location. An update to the room we stayed in and this would be a fantastic place to stay.
