“Good bar food with good service. Dog friendly.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

We chose to eat here as it was the first place in Rhayader that was dog-friendly. First impressions upon entering were good.There was a pleasant atmosphere and the barman very friendly. He showed us the dining areas and we took a seat. The waitress who served us was just as friendly and helpful, whilst also serving efficiently. All the staff made us feel welcome and made a fuss over the dog and baby!

The menu was a little limited, but covered your standard bar food. The quality of the food was good. I had a steak which although the chef wasn't prepared to cook blue was cooked well and tasted delicious. The accompanying chips were also cooked well and were proper chips (not frozen in a packet). My wife was also pleased with her burger.

“Smoker sitting on doormat had to be asked to let us in”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

There were two smokers at the door, one at the side and the other sitting on the doormat. They had to be asked to let us in. One then immediately went behind the bar to serve. The other went off, probably to the kitchen. We had previously popped in to ask about parking, and the reaction was friendly. Otherwise we would have abandoned lunch there!

“Good food but unpleasant management”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013 via mobile

Apart from starters coming separately the starters & mains were great. Toilets had cleaning stuff in at the beginning of afternoon dinner and management [male] was ignorant & rude. Staff was pleasant but run ragged....

Unpleasant smell on entering.......does not look clean! Food not good......leek and potato too much and lacking in any sort of flavour. A definite no no!
