Lovely lunch, nice variety on the menu and a specials board too. We were in early so not too busy but nearly all tables taken by time we were leaving. Looks like a busy place. Friendly staff, good food, plenty of beer choices on tap and sky sports on tv! What more could you want 👍

My husband and I called in here on Sunday for lunch. The beef was cooked to perfection and we were given a good portion. It was served with a Yorkshire pudding and one roast potato and gravy. The vegetables were cabbage, broccoli and carrots and these were served separately in a stainless steel dish. We were also given a gravy...

Lastnight I went for some drinks in the castle, I felt intimidated by the woman who served me and felt as if she didn't want to be there. Both of the women staff that night were very miserable and made the atmosphere very miserable too.

We were passing and spotted an open door with menu displayed so entered the dining room to be told it didn't open til 18:00 however we were accommodated 20 mins early by a pleasant and friendly waitress . Drinks were provided promptly. I ordered whitebait starter which arrived without the lemon mayonnaise . There wasn't a courtesy check back so...

The hotel itself was perfectly serviceable, although the clean and adequately appointed rooms were functional rather than attractive. Staff were polite and accommodating. The main problem, however, is one of noise. The hotel itself is on the corner of a main road, with heavy noisy traffic rumbling through from early morning until late in the evening. Then, if you have...

I am writing this review because several others noted poor customer service. This was absolutely not the case for my visit. I stayed for one night whilst on business, the staff where kind and helpful. Breakfast was freshly cooked and was excellent. The room was basic and clean, no frills. Just calling a room by a Welsh name does not...

One night only for our anniversary.....arrived mid morning, coffee and a warm welcome. Excellent light lunch, a pint or two then a trip to sample the other public houses for the rugby. Room on the top floor very clean, slept like a log. Breakfast was tasty and filling....no complaints from us.

I expected a bit more quality given the price. It is a pub with rooms and first glance is not very charming. The room was dated in an attic next to the breakfast kitchen which started cooking at 06.15 bagging and clashes for two hours and the smell coming into the room was awfull. The bathroom was in need of...

The Lunch presentation is lovely, Cottage pie came in a oval bowl, with a colander of vegetables, on a black slate, the only down side was the veg was frozen, If it was fresh it would have been superb, My husband had the gammon, this was a full plate, lovely presentation and he said very nice, The atmosphere was nice...
