I locked forward to trying the "new Miskin Arms" having lived in Miskin some years ago. I was impressed by the obvious expense spent, that had created a lovely looking restaurant with good views. There were 4 of us for lunch and overall, we were very disappointed with the quality of the food. We all eat frequently at similar establishments... More

We made a last minute booking on Sunday for a late lunch and we were well looked after. The food was fabulous, particularly the mussels starter and the roast beef main. The service was very good and the bill was excellent value, we will definitely be visiting again.

Just got back from Sunday lunch at the Miskin Arms very happy with a full stomach. Food really good. Muscles to start, a very generous portion and lovely sauce to dip bread in. Fillet of beef for mains. Fantastic quality, can tell they source their meat from a good supplier and don't use cheap cuts. Have to comment on the... More

Our daughter mentioned the newly refurbished Miskin Arms was worth a visit so we booked a table for lunch today. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. We both chose from the fixed price lunch menu (£19-ish per head). I had mussels followed by grilled hake and my husband had chorizo with potatoes followed by slow cooked lamb. All our food was...

First visit since the new opening. Amazing transformation of the old public house. Staff were amazing and tended to every detail and requirement. The food selection was outstanding from fish to veal. Try this place a new hidden gem on the outskirts of cardiff. We took our 7 month old daughter and the staff couldn't do enough for us. Thank... More

My wife and I recently visited the Miskin Arms for lunch and I must say it was excellent. The recent refurbishment was a pleasant surprise as I had visited the premises about a year ago. We selected off the two course lunch time special for around £12.00p which proves you don't have to spend big for lunch. The food was... More

The money that had been spent on renovating The Miskin Arms is a job well done, but sometimes renovations can mean that money is saved on food. I am glad to say that this is certainly not the case. We visited there on a Wednesday night and the atmosphere was lovely. The staff were really pleasant and helpful and the... More

I have thought long and hard about writing this second review - this time after a meal at the refurbished restaurant - as I didn't want to give a knee-jerk reaction. So I will try to keep it brief. Ambience: All the charm of an overcrowded Holiday Inn hotel dining room (this is NOT a compliment) Service: Nice ladies, supervised... More
