TheRoyal Oak is a gem of a place, well worth finding. This is the second time we have stayed the night here and have also visited on several other occasions for lunch and beer when we are out on the mountain bikes. The hosts are very friendly, welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Good range of well kept and constantly varied beers, great selection of whiskey (if you're not sure what you want Chris has great knowledge and will guide you) and good honest home cooked food all in a cosy pub with log fire and friendly people. This place certainly isn't The Slaughtered Lamb in 'American Werewolf in London'!
The rooms may not be 5 star but are functional, clean and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities, tv, comfy beds, towels and environmentally friendly toiletries etc. The only small issue (as some other guests have pointed out) is the lack of a shower in some rooms and the sometimes limited hot water supply. At the end of the day though we don't come here to sit in our rooms, and at the price including breakfast they are great value.
The surrounding area, especially up around Llyn Brianne is stunning and offers many options for cycling on and off road and walking etc.
We will be back for lunch and beer in November and no doubt a return overnight stay next year.
