We decided to have an overnight stop here in our Motorhome as the weather was rather bleak. We were warmly welcomed and had a nice red wine.

Visited this pub for a lunchtime meal mid-week. Very quiet - we were the only people there. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food came very quickly and was very tasty and of generous portions. Food very reasonably priced. Will certainly return.

Had lovely Saturday lunch with an elderly lady with us. Service was excellent with very friendly and attentive service. Food was very good and very good value for money. We live away so can't be regulars. However when we visit Aberdare again we will return.
