Excellent quality food in a great local which even brews its own beer. Highly recommend the home made ham and parsley sauce, just like my Mum's! Sunday luncheon is also excellent as is the fine array of wines and beers

Great location - side of the Garth down windy lanes,not the best if you are an impatient driver but adds to the whole thing I think. Good atmosphere on arrival with people sitting outside having a beer. We were taken to our table in... More

However the food came out quickly and was of superb quality. All orders right first time. Nothing was too much trouble for the Gwaelod team, quickly bringing drinks, jugs of water, extra veg...
