This is a charming looking pub with considerable Olde Worlde charm in a pretty village in a beautiful valley. The owners, too, are charming and appear to be doing their best to make their business work and to make the guests feel welcome. They do, however, have some problems to overcome:
Some of the staff are young and not very competent.
Our room was a little basic for the money, although our bathroom was quite nice - the bed was quite comfortable, but very wobbly - so lie still!
The WiFi signal was OK in our room, but the broadband itself was so slow as to be practically unusable - I could not even listen to internet radio and sending/receiving emails is a problem.
The TV signal, too, was awful. We could only receive 5 channels and these did not even include BBC1. But I suppose this is what one must expect in rural Wales together with the lack of a mobile signal?
In addition to this the restaurant purports to offer a gourmet menu, but the food was pretentious, over priced and not very tasty. Perhaps we were just unlucky, judging by the other reviews, and the breakfast was nice. I did notice a number of AA Rosette award plates on display, but the most recent of these seemed to be for 2011 or 12.More
