Usually a lovely meal here. But this time the food was undercooked Unfortunately nobody came around to check If the meal was OK. When pointed out to a member of staff the response was defensive with no apology. Such a shame as we usually love it here.

Spent an afternoon in the beer garden after a walk through sirhowy valley park. Lovely spot, shaded and sunny areas. Food was delicious- I recommend the 1/2lb burger. Dog friendly, child friendly. Plenty of free parking. Good service. Would go again soon!

Popped in with family to have a bite to eat. The food was terrible. The chicken was dry and the chips overcooked. Everything was over cooked. Such a shame as this is a lovely pub and in the past food has been great. Hope they sort it out as food prices are steep for what they are serving.
