Walked past it initially. Looking for a more countryside view/feel but ended up walking back as struggled to find anything else within walking distance of the caravan site. So glad we did. Lovely big chesterfield sofas to sink into, modern decor with some funky wallpaper but all very welcoming. Orders a few pints of the visiting ales and spent the... More

Excellent find. Good Sunday roast, good beer and wine. Plenty of vegetables and gravy. Crackling could have been crunchier and asked for extra sauce for sticky toffee pudding. Coffee all for £38 for 2, nice ambience and music. Lovely on a wet windy Sunday.

We were staying at the nearby caravan site and decided to go here for a meal on a Wednesday evening. It was very quiet as it was early January; we ordered drinks at the bar while we had a look at the menu. Once we'd ordered we were asked if we wanted to eat where we were seated, which we... More

Tried a lunchtime snack. Have to say the two meals for £10 were good, and nothing to complain about there. Unfortunately, there were three of us, so one person had to chose off the normal menu and ended up with a meal costing £10 in itself and hardly much difference to the size of the half price meals. That said,... More

I'll cover the food first.....The starters were good in terms of taste (game terrine, mackerel pate and mustroom filo parcels though there were very few mushrooms actually in the parcels and there needed to be more toast for...

We popped into The Hand as it's fairly close by and we could take the dog with us in certain parts of the bar / coffee area. We reserved a table and was served quickly and politely. We both went for the steak burgers. They were fantastic, excellently presented and tasted amazing. Reasonably priced considering the quality on offer. Plenty... More

The initial wait to be seated took ages... but after that it was all positive. The food was delicious and our waitress great. "is this a welsh restaurant?" - yes in so far as its in Wales - produce may be locally sourced but tbh didn't look.
