I was looking for a pub to have something to eat and a beer for the evening. Beer was good, food a bit old style british - means: not freshly cooked and hardly any spices. But to be honest, it was sufficient and not expensive. So worth the money. I would have enjoyed the stay, if the landlord would have... More

Several homemade recipes from excellent meats, packed full into each puff pastry topped delight, but also an amazing choice of Veggie pies!! My vegetarian wife usually has the choice of the veggie lasagna or nut roast, however at the Station, there were 6 beautiful home made... More

Thankyou so much for your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed the pies and your visit. I try to make different recipes with some unusual combinations as well as the contemporary and I think vegetarians should also have a wide range of choice also It makes all our efforts more worthwhile when you are kind enough to give us such...

My boyfriend and I had just come from walking Pen y Fan so we were trying to find somewhere to eat which was dog friendly and we noticed The Station Hotel on google. Came into the pub with a warm welcome from the staff and they even said hello to the dogs which was really nice! The dogs were fidgety... More

My wife and I both had an omelette and my friend had sausage egg and chips, washed it all down with a few pints and still had change... More

The food was well priced & lovely - would highly recommend the chilli! Stayed after for a couple of more drinks & a game of... More

Fantastic choice of food for veggies and meat-eaters alike. The pear crumble was excellent, and would recommend.

My friend and I were cycling the Taff Trail from Brecon to Cardiff when we came across this pub (not a hotel) in Merthyr right on the route, about halfway, at lunchtime. The friendly landlady and her staff gave us a lovely welcome. It is a cosy, unpretentious pub with a local feel. The home cooking really is that -... More

Visited for an evening meal with friends. Rang beforehand to check and they kindly reserved a table for us. A very clean and tidy pub with good decor. We were made to feel very welcome and had great meals. A couple of us had puddings which were superb and huge! Great value for money and I would recommend this place.... More
