what do you want in a pub, good beer, great company and little else....well that's the Llanover. It's a bit basic when compared with more commercial pubs, but it's a proper pub, with proper beer and proper people

Cracking real ale, constantly changed due to high throughput. Brains Bitter seems to be the stock ale plus a couple of constantly changing guest ales. Children not allowed. Agree with other reviewers - my local when I visit Pontypridd.

Just like to reiterate what other reviewers have said, a no frills pub but good beer and very reasonably priced wine on offer. From the outside could be viewed as a 'man's pub, but this isn't the case, it has a wide range of customers...More
