Love this place my favourite in Pontardawe they serve good food and fab entertainment. It is my local when I go out as it has a great atmosphere and there are lots of great characters that go to this pub.

I visited here before going to a wedding fair close by. We had dinner and a few drinks in the bar and it was lovely. Speaking to the locals was a highlight. Didn't mind not having towels and breakfast was very rushed as we needed to get out the door very quickly. Had a great time though.

I've used the Dillwyn before and was happy to use it again. The management were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable enough for an overnight stopover and the bathroom was also clean and of a good size. The on-site parking is very useful, as there didn't appear to be much available as an alternative other than the...

I've stayed at the Dillwyn a few times recentely. Lovely people, clean rooms, decent beer, and a warm welcome. I had the best meal I've had for 3 weeks the other night when Hayley was cooking, a lamb shank, which was great. Many thanks, will definately stay again. Martin G

Warm welcome from the owner/ Landlady. Our 11 yr old son traveled with us, nothing to much trouble. came down for a family party. Rooms are comfortable, clean beds, carpet in rooms could do be updated but for how long you spend in the room it was fine for us. Bathroom adequate, and towels provided. Pub food available looked good....
