“Fantastic find on our last night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

We had our 'last night of the holiday meal' here and we were really surprised by the service and the food!
the service was great and it was lovely to see that there was locally sourced food available on the menu, it makes such a difference!
We would recommend eating here, we didn't book however we were there early evening and could imagine it been very popular.
Definitely worth a visit!!

“Excellent food, excellent value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Having struggled to find somewhere to eat in the area this place came recommended by the owner of the B&B we were staying in. We were certainly not disappointed, in fact we liked the food so much we ate here two nights running. The place is clean and tidy, no food on the floor or sticky carpets which we encountered in some places. The staff were attentive and friendly, the food and wine were excellent value for money, very tasty, with good portion sizes and prompt service.
Would highly recommend if you are staying in the Aberystwyth area. Booking probably advisable for weekends, we ate here during the week and it was quite busy.

“Last night find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

The pub (gastro) is situated in a little village (Tre-r-ddol) between Machynllath and Talybont just outside Aberystwyth.
The staff are so friendly and the food was much better than we were expecting, beautifully presented and well cooked and the portion size generous. Good wine list and the beer looked in good condition.
Unfortunately we found this little gem on the last night of our holiday, but will definitely return next time we are in the area

“Fantastic home cooked food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

This was our second visit to The Wild Fowler and we can't recommend it enough, the food is Excellent all home made and very very tasty, hubby had Gammon which was superb, mother has sweet & sour chicken with chips which was very tasty and obviously home made :-) me & daughter had steak & Stilton pie which is the best pie I have ever had, the steak just melted in your mouth with just enough Stilton, and Matt ( daughters boyfriend) had steak & chips with a peppercorn sauce, which also melted in your mouth, the portions are a very good size, if you have a starter, two of us had homemade potato & leek soup, very good, you won't manage a desert, but last time we went we did have a desert instead of a starter and again very tasty and good size. We will defiantly be back as daughter & boyfriend will be living a few houses away :-))))) so we have a brilliant excuse to go more often when we are over there. Just to add a comment from the previous reviewer -The Wild Fowler is completely different to The Victoria at Borth, the food is far superior at The Wild Fowler there is no comparison - we did eat at The Victoria and would recommend it BUT the Victoria is pub food and The Wild Fowler is restaurant food :-) x

“Good for portion size and quality; you may need to book”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

I am told that the Victoria in Borth is better, however we had an excellent sit down meal at the Wildfowler in Tre-rddol (some way from Machynylleth). The portion sizes were excellent and I was very impressed with the quality of the chips with my huge chili. In terms of combining value with quality and quantity this was perhaps the best optimised we ate at during our recent stay in Wales. Service was also friendly.
