Visited last weekend on Friday and Saturday night and the staff were so friendly and welcoming, and really dog-friendly. Even though we had an issue with our food on the Saturday (just one dish, the other one was great) - the manager at the time (a really organised lady) dealt with it really well and we still left with a...

Great pub! Dog friendly! Lovely food menu, and great prosecco ;) sat outside and was lovely with the stream trickling and the countryside noises.

We have eaten at the Scarens Head on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They are also very dog friendly.

During our stay at another nearby hotel we found this place for an evening meal and it was very impressive from the start with the interior decor. There's a lot of tables to dine at and although we were here on a very wet rainy day I suspect this place could get very busy. For me, good choice of real... More

We stopped at this lovely place for a small bite to eat after Zipwiring at Zipworld nearby. (So obviously we were all pretty hungry!) The lady was friendly and welcoming and handed us our menu. We all chose something off the sandwich menu and it was a very generous portion. The Welsh Rarebit looked divine, (I kind of wish I... More

We stopped by on a Saturday evening, and were shown to a table immediately. The service was friendly and quick, and the waitress was attentive. We had the fish and chips and the Saracens burger. They were both very generous portions and of good quality. The chips in particular were very moreish. The restaurant was clean and nicely decorated- will... More

We called in for food/drink on a Thursday evening however, we were a bit late so missed the window for a meal. No problem however, we found the staff not particularly welcoming - would recommend the Tanronnen Inn instead.

Myself and 5 friends dined here 2 nights in a row. Excellent food - little more expensive than anticipated, but still good. Service was great, particularly when a member of staff came to find our group in another pub! - to let us know our taxi had arrived early!! The only battle is connecting to the wifi, but everyone is... More

Went with my partner and our dog. We had two courses each and a couple of drinks for £50. So very reasonably priced. Good food and plenty of it. No frills just good old fashion food and drink. Nice pub in a lovely location. Would go again.
