This is a traditional pub in a small country town which serves great food. The choice is above average with partridge, pheasant and other game on the menu in season. I had the chicken in red wine which was delicious with saute potatoes cooked perfectly. The welcome from the landlord was friendly and the staff obliging. Being a country pub... More

My Auntie and I had prawn cocktail to start and my husband had the homemade pate. I must say the amount of prawns was fabulous portion... More

Saturday lunch after seeing a few Welsh castles. Greeted with a smile and great, attentive service throughout. Food was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Will visit again and thoroughly recommend.

The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The menu was extensive and the food was truly traditional homemade and delicious. Very good value for money, really recommend... More

Lovely friendly welcome, and excellent service in a traditional pub setting. Quickly seated and served with home made rabbit pie, a good range of veg, all piping hot. This was our first visit to this pub but you can be sure we will be back for more from an excellent lunchtime menu. Lovely clean facilities too. What more could you... More

They had booked a table in plenty of time and was looking forward to a Sunday dinner, on arrival they were... More

Greeted on unscheduled arrival by a warm welcome from the Key family, long-term owners. Our light lunch was home made soup, unusually with toast, followed by generous slices of apple and raspberry pie with custard (or choice of cream or ice cream). The decor, like the menu, is interesting and unusual - not many pubs nowadays offer rabbit pie or... More
