Although we only popped in for a quick drink the bar looked really nice. This place seems to be in the 'sports bar' bracket. Staff were friendly

My wife, Glawdys, her brother Ianto and several children inc. Gruff, Iestyn, Guto, Will Cwac Cwac and Myfanwy visited this pub last week, together with our pet sheep Angharad. We were astonished to find that they had no facilities whatsoever for Angharad. Be assured we will never ever visit again.
