We were looking to refill our water bottles and dreaming of a cup of coffee after a cold night up on the hills and were taken in and spoilt with homemade welsh cakes and coffee even though the hotel was closed at that time. Such generosity, thank you so much!

The owners (Welsh speaking) could not do enough for you. Wifi facilities...even in the bedroom, pool table, great beer and great fun. A faultless night's stay....well...

Came here with some friends for some lunch. A quaint little pub done up beautifully. Ordered a lamb and mint pie which was delicious. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. A good place to stop when walking around the Welsh countryside.

Didn't need to book and the four of us were made very welcome as soon as we walked through the door. Don't expect a paper menu. The choices are on a couple of blackboards around the room. Might...

Six of us turned up muddy, wet and tired and were made to feel incredibly welcome. Great hosts, accommodation, bar, beer and an awesome log burner. What more could you ask for?! Would definitely stay again.
