Y Blackpool Talybont offers a range of ales wines and beers along with a interesting menu. After visiting on numerous occasions for gatherings for lunch with work colleagues I have found the meals reasonably consistent. The Blac doesn't however offer accommodation which is a bit of a pit fall For such a large hotel.

We have been for a meal at Y Blac before, but today's meal was superb. My wife and I had the same starter, smoked salmon salad, it was well presented and enough to provide an appetite for the main course. I chose the welsh lamb rump it was cooked to perfection, tender and pink and the vegetables were a good... More

We have recently moved to Talybont and have already heard many raving reviews about yBlac and its fabulous food. We gave it a try today and it was outstanding! The locals we've spoken with certainly weren't exaggerating when they said this was the place to go if you wanted to enjoy a superb meal with great service! We were greeted... More

We stopped in Talybont last week on our way back from Aberystwyth. We tried the hotel/pub next door to the Black Lion (where yBlac is located) but received poor service and their food standards agency rating was low so we decided to try somewhere else. We gave yBlac a try. There is limited parking outside, but we were able to... More

Our 3rd visit was for Sunday lunch. What a treat! Mediterranean veg. soup & mackerel pate, followed by perfect roast lamb & roast chicken, accompanied by beautifully cooked veg & potatoes, (roast mash & boiled). The leeks and broad beans in cream was a tender delight. The smooth creme brulee rounded the meal off well. Only a few other restaurants... More

Calling on the off chance whilst driving back to Aberystwyth we didn't hold too much hope in getting a table but we were very pleasantly surprised. A very warm welcome from the staff and a nice bar area set the tone for our evening, there was a very good selection of food with plenty available for vegetarians. The masala chicken... More
