What a fabulous choice of menu. We both had steak in ciabatta and it was excellent. Bar staff was very attentive and friendly too. Lovely welcome for us and the dog.

This is by far the best bar in the town, the range of drinks is superb and the food is the best around

Thank you for your comment. We do ensure that we have a full range of drinks to suit everyone’s taste and our food, served in the bar at lunchtime and evenings (as well as the restaurant in the evenings) is certainly the best around.

Fantastic lunch. We all had the burger and chips. Kids had children's meal and were stuffed. Massive portions of tasty, hot food. Reasonably priced. Barman was really friendly and our dog was welcome too.

6 of us were staying at the hotel whilst doing the Lon Las Cymru bike route so we were very hungry. We had a meal in the restaurant and the food was truly lovely and there was plenty of it. Can thoroughly recommend.

Friendly bar staff, excellent food, lovely fire. You don't usually get asked how you want your steak cooking for a steak sandwich, cooked beautifully and plenty of it. Would definitely recommend and they're dog friendly.
