“Rushed Railway in South Wales NOT ENGLAND please!”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

Nice local pub with food available but had some issues there last week. Seems the previous landlord left rather quickly and a host had to step in temporarily so please read this review on the basis that the people running it will likely change soon so could improve.
There was only 1 very busy young lady seemingly trying got fo everything but the cooking, she was a nice well mannered young lday when 4 of us visited for a frink & a meal.
Beer & lager not much choice but both fine re taste.
Great choice on the menu.
Problems though because our young lady was so rushed. Starters were delicious, chicken goujons and garlic/cheese sauce on mushrooms particularly delicious. However main courses arrived before we'd all finished our starters without real apology and any offering to return later. The steaks were also delicious on the whole and plenty on the plates however a requested 'well done' steak simply wasn't and had to be returned as undercooked.
So the place really gets 4 *s for the meal but only 2 *s for the service unfortunately, an average of 3 *s
