I have been here quite a few times now since Lynette and Tom took over. On each visit I have found the food to be superb and the service professional and friendly. They even catering for my vegan brother on one occasion, making him a salad he said was the best he'd ever tasted! Lynette and Tome have totally transformed... More

We visited again on 18 February 2017 for Valentine's Day. Lynette and Tom have created something very special here. A fabulous dining room space, clearly furnished and thought out with love and attention to detail. A good menu too; my husband had mussels to begin, we both had steak, and the Banoffee Mess for dessert is absolutely delicious! For once... More

Just had Sunday lunch with the family, and it was lovely. Loads to eat, a very reasonable bottle of white, great service AND beautifully clean!! Will be a regular again now. Well done Lynette and team. Hope you go from strength to strength, and all your hard work pays off.

A table of four enjoyed a lovely, lively atmosphere in this pub last night. Lynette and Tom have made this pub so different from the previous incarnation that you feel somewhere completely different. The menu was delightful- I could have chosen so many items but honed in on mussels to start and a super fish cake for mains. Had room... More

Excellent meal, scallops to start wonderful. My husband had the pork it was amazing, my steak was beautiful. The highlight of the meal was the crispy polenta. Would recommend to anybody.

Fabulous food in a warm, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. Well done Lynette and Tom; you've created something really special in your dining room and in the pub as a whole. We have already booked for Boxing Day 2017 and will see you many, many times before then.

The Cantreff is under new ownership/management. We wanted somewhere to go for our tennis group Christmas meal so went to inspect and were not disappointed. It has been completely refurbished; great decoration, lighting and furnishings. The Staff were delightful, the food delicious and reasonably priced and we enjoyed a thoroughly good evening. I had been there the night previously with... More
