“the pub with no grub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

this is a lovely restaurant that used to be a real pleasure to visit, however recently it has become more difficult to get a meal of your choice here. On November the 2nd 2013 (a Saturday) we arrived at the Railway Inn. Llangynwyd Having booked a table for four earlier in the week. We were given the menu and made our selection. My wife ordered Green Thai curry. "I'm sorry there's no green Thai curry left we've been busy". My friend ordered Lasagne. "I'm sorry there's no lasagne, we've had a party here today." My friend settled for chicken curry. Success! Only to be told, "I'm sorry we have curry, but no rice. You can have a jacket potato if you like". I appreciate the restaurant is busy but as the banners stated it was a 13th birthday party. Children with sophisticated tastes?
The sad part is there's a Tesco's, Asda and Aldi's all within two miles. If you intend using this restaurant I recommend when you book your table you ask them what food you need to bring with you.

“Very Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

OK... Lets be fair... This is Pub Food but it is very good pub food. It pretends to be nowt else. The owners have done a great job saving much of the bar and not turning the whole place into an eatery (as so many pubs do these days). So one may have a drink before and after the meal in a proper pub environment.... Really nice staff.... cutlery that does not bend in the hand... good menu and very reasonable price. All round my wife and I really like this place and we will visit again.

“Extremely accommodating of visitors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013 via mobile

This village pub serves a range of drinks including a real ale and prices seemed very reasonable. We arrived too late for food (times seem quite variable so best check in advance) but the landlord was happy to advise on options and provided a range of take away menus. The locals were welcoming and the place had a nice feeling. As a registered taxi driver with a small minibus Steve was more than happy to arrange transport home for our group making the location easily accessible. 2 of our group are also looking forward to Sunday lunch today which is very reasonable priced.
