The landlord is brilliant and very accommodating to any needs. I have stayed here several times and the food has always been freshly made and delicious. On the times I have stayed here the rooms are always immaculately clean and also very homely. I can't speak more highly of this place!!

With a Campsite down the hill and having a day out walking the hills, what better to eat at this local pub. The beer was of good standard and the Rib eye was cooked as required. with a couple of ales and locals the evening went well and a good night slept well.

We decided to book a last minute break here for Sunday night and we're so glad they had a room available. When we arrived there was a mini beer festival going on so it was quite busy and the weather was lovely. We checked in and were shown straight to our room which was quite big with our own bathroom...

Burger night and breakfast are particular favourites of mine. Rooms are comfortable and very well priced, the singles share a bathroom which is...

Stopped in for an evening meal and and a few pints after a day's walk on the Cambrian Way. There was a quite reasonable selection of craft/cask beer all in excellent condition. It was "Hamburger Night" and what terrific hamburgers they were. Nice cosy atmosphere and friendly service. Well worth the walk up the hill if you are staying at...

Stop here overnight after a long day out on the motorbikes. The landlord is a great guy, very friendly, welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The bar is great and the beer all of great quality.
