My husband and I had lunch here last week. Chicken curry and chicken tikka skewer with veg curry both stunning lovely and hot. We sat by the fire which made it cosy. Service was great. A lovely place to eat. Will be back.

Best pub grub in Cardiff, by some distance. Excellent menu choice with interesting specials board. Constantly good standard of food, and they are always prepared to cater for individual needs.The service is efficient and friendly. One excellent feature is that the food is always hot, and this is due to having hot plates.How often do you get that in restaurants...

I've been several times and it had always been passable for food. This reliability is a good thing. If it was just a little better food wise this place would be excellent. Generally its pretty friendly not silver service but OK.

We were recommended the Gwaelod y Garth Inn by one of our younger staff members and so we were a little apprehensive as to what we might find. Suffice to say we were more than pleasantly surprised. The pub is nestled in the village a short drive up a windy road, thankfully parking is available behind the inn as on...

Excellent quality food in a great local which even brews its own beer. Highly recommend the home made ham and parsley sauce, just like my Mum's! Sunday luncheon is also excellent as is the fine array of wines and beers

Myself & the fiance were lucky to get a last minute cancellation - definitely book ahead. Great location - side of the Garth down windy lanes,not the best if you are an impatient driver but adds to the whole thing I think. Good atmosphere on arrival with people sitting outside having a beer. We were taken to our table in...
