Food served 2 hours after table was booked, many items on menu sold out. Apparently only one chef. Will not be returning. Waitress was really trying her best to help but she couldn't go and cook the food herself. What a shame!

Great value meal really nice as well, would highly recommend. £10 for 1 course £12 for 2 course £15 for 3 courses. But be warned they do tend to run out of starters later on in the day!

Service at the bar was a bit slow, but I don't think they had thought through the implications of so many people arriving and wanting drinks at the same time. The young lad behind the bar tried very hard to cope, but the... More

This Inn was easy to find & offers 'specials' - 2 for £12-£15 most days as well as their ordinary menu. Great atmosphere, good service & a very nice meal. Highly recommend it!

I went to the glancynon for food on the 15th September lunch time. And I couldn't say anything bad about the food. But there was lack of customer service.
