Ignore the date of Sept 2015. We last stopped mid 2015 for a quick pint on the way back from Tonfanau, as we have done for the past 10 years. Always a good pint, lovely old building. Was saddened to see it had closed, but had noticed declining visitors over the years (got easier and easier to park the van).... More

Called into this pub at lunch time after walking in the hills and ordered soup. The soup was served with a very small white roll and the amount of soup was also minute. They suffer from portion control in the wrong direction, will not be calling again.

We visited this place for an evening meal, and I wish we'd read the reviews before we went. The hotel was dismal in appearance, and the man behind the bar could have done with some customer skills. The beer was at least £1 dearer than any other pub we visited this holiday (over £4 a pint!). That said, the meal... More

The rudest man I've ever met owns this place. Got berated for requesting a receipt and wanting to pay my bar bill for checking out in the morning! I always say: if a place is dirty in the places you can see, imagine what it's like where you can't see!! Seriously, avoid staying here at all costs.

It is what it is a very old Building with lots of history. As the walls are so thick the rooms can feel slightly chilly in the evenings , the decor is dated but in such a small family run business i`m sure it`s difficult to keep up with the Jones`s . It is friendly with good breakfast choices and... More

Weirdest place I've been to in a long time. I'll quote my conversation with the bar man (owner?) "Have you got Fruitshoots for the children?" "I don't do fruitshoots!" "Blackcurrent squash then?"

We stopped here for 1 night in July. We had read the reviews and was unsure what to expect. Well it ain't as bad as people have made out. The owner and the staff were pleasant and friendly.

Nice hotel, staff and manager. We had an evening meal in the bar area so we could enjoy the open fire. It was a lovely atmosphere and the food was very good and cooked to order. The breakfast was also cooked to order, with tasty sausage and nice bacon. My egg was perfectly cooked. The bedrooms were comfortable and clean.... More

The bar here is quite traditional with an open fire which is very welcome in winter (and sometimes in the summer here too). The beer is reasonably priced and the bar meals are well prepared. The range is the standard pub meals but nicely presented.

We should have been suspicious when we booked this over the internet and we were asked for 50% payment at the time of booking. When we arrived [to stay for two nights] the remainder of the money was demanded before we were shown to our room. It is a misnomer to call this a hotel - it is a public... More
