The place was busy on the night but we felt like the only people there we were treated so well! Chef came out to see us and staff could;t have done any more to be helpful, polite and genuinely friendly. Food - AMAZING. Would highly recommend.

We visited here again this evening. There were six in our group-one couple had not been to the Penycae Inn before. Once again every meal was excellent. I had the duck which was the best duck I have ever tasted. Service was great and we had a good welcome. Always of high consistent standard. Would highly recommend.

......but pretty average Sunday Lunch, we were a little disappointed after reading an article giving the place a very good write up, to be fair it might be better on a week day when it maybe isn't so busy. we would go again but it would be our last choice.

After looking for a nice dinner stop when on holiday we came across this pub and thought we'd give it a try. We had a warm welcome, so did our dog! The food was lovely, and appreciated looking at the bikes too. Well worth a stop if you are in the area!

I have been here before but today we took the family up for lunch, because last time we came we enjoyed so much. The staff are so friendly and can't do enough for you and the food is amazing.

We were staying up at Craig Y nos Castle, so popped over to Pen Y Cae Inn on one of our evenings for a change of scene. Amazing food, good service and we had a great time having a look around the micro zoo!

Gorgeous Carvery, complimented by deep fried Brie and chilli jam starter and apple pie with custard dessert. Really well presented. Lovely interior, cosy friendly Welsh pub environment. Will definitely return.

Recently took my wife here to celebrate her birthday after being recommended by friends. We both had nice starters, I had the carrot and ginger soup but it was not hot enough for my taste, and my wife's belly pork was over cooked . I had the ample seafood tagliatelle , and my wife had the gammon, the mains were... More
