Visted with a group of friends. Set out from breakfast before a long day shopping. Very good, freshly cooked. Definitely will return

I visited a long time friend last week, and said I'd travel to Porth to see her. Asking for suggestions, she said this place had recently been done out and she'd heard good reviews. I was travelling on public transport, and not knowing the area well - this place was easy to find along the main High St; known locally... More

This was the first time I had visited since they have started their carvery lunch on Sunday and Wednesday and I was quite impressed. a good selection of home cooked meats with ample sized portions. There was a good selection of vegetables which were hot and tasty. In my opinion this was good value for money at £6.50 on a... More

Well what a dreadful place. Dodgy characters in one corner. Rude, more than my jobs worth staff. Food was nothing special and overpriced.

Cannot cope with big groups. We placed our orders and then the waitress came back and several items were not available. When we had our main meals many of the meals were incorrect and one the other 13 of us had been given our food we were then told, for the final meal, there were no burgers available. So he... More

Hands down the best carvery I have ever had. Meat was stunning, veg was perfect and the staff couldn't do enough. Been to this establishment on many occasions for the odd drink and quick bite to eat, however, this carvery has put Dylan's truly on the map. BRAVO

We visited Saturday teatime, spur of the moment decision. The Welsh football and Rugby was on the TV. This was not a problem anyway but it didn't interfere with our meal as the bar and restaurant area are separate and it is a large room. Well laid out tables, very friendly but courteous staff. Prices were very reasonable and the... More

Met up with family here again yesterday and had a nice time. The food was good (If not a little expensive for lunch) and the waitress was very friendly.

Best place In local area for a meal - if you like a substantial pub meal then this is the place for you. Portions are good, food was piping hot and very very tasty (curry had a good kick to it and not skimpy in the meat!) and prices are reasonable. Menu is not brilliant - but usual pub classics...
