We have been here a few times when we stay in a cottage across the road. It's a great little proper Welsh pub. Cosy and inviting with very friendly locals. Great selection of ales and even a good wine list for a small out of town pub. Great to accompany dinner which we also enjoyed. It's more pub grub fare... More

Staying in the house directly opposite and a mere 10 paces from door to door, I was absolutely delighted that the Neuadd Fawr Arms was so nice. A warm welcome and a warm, cosy bar, the wood burner was roaring and the ales tasty, and I can recommend a few pints of Doom Bar. Having arrived on Saturday afternoon, we... More

Had a lovely meal with a great steak cooked to perfection. The cheeseboard was superb with a great Welsh blue cheese. The landlord and other patrons were very friendly and welcoming. We ate on an unusually quiet night but heard similar good reviews from others who ate on a busy night.

Having seen the reviews, we booked a table for 10 - to relax over dinner with friends following a brutal hike to Usk reservoir and back. Having made our way in to the bar area from the car-park, we were immediately shown to our table - lovely table by the window. Fantastic, friendly service from start to finish, we were... More

Great old English pub in a very cute/picturesque village. A gathering place for the locals. Very good selection of beers, especially the stouts. Food was so so. Mostly overlooked but apparently it doesn't have an impact on the attendance for dinner. Call ahead and make a reservation, it is well worth the drive and scenery in the village in spite... More

If you are looking for no frills cooking, good pub grub this is for you. Very enjoyable meal with friends (who live locally). Pleasant and friendly welcome from both the pub staff and locals, large portions of well cooked pub grub. Will visit again when in the area.

After a long hot day at The Royal Welsh Show, we found this little gem. The food is excellent, all home made. The staff were very welcoming. Will definitely eat here in the future.
