If you are looking for authentic Welsh locals and an authentic Welsh pub this should be your choice. It's 'oldy worldly' with low beams, nooks and crannies and white paint work. Just lovely. It's run by the community (they rent it off the land lord who wanted to turn it in to flats). It's reasonable priced with good local ales...

We were greeted with a warm welcome and shown straight to our room. Nice easy access car park at the front of the inn with plenty of room for our van. Room was clean and nicely decorated with a fully equipped compact kitchen. The village is very small so there is very little traffic on the road outside the inn...

What a lovely community pub in a quiet spot. Sits opposite the "commanding" village church. So peaceful and the drinks are very competitively priced. Food is good quality and service was efficient but friendly. Definitely worth a visit to spend an hour or two in the sun. Will be going back soon.

Six of us met up in our friends pub in their village.What a cosy place. Pleasant staff and efficient too. It was for Sunday lunch and the menu was good. Plenty of meat and vegetables and delicious roasted potatoes. The price was very reasonable too. Would definitely recommend a visit. We will return.

Only having been to The Raven for a meal previously we decided to book for Sunday Lunch. My wife and I were certainly not disappointed. There was a choice of 3 roast meats plus a vegetarian main course. After ordering at the bar our meals arrived within 10/15 minutes. We were pleasantly surprised with the variety of different vegatables served...

Such a picturesque village and gorgeous traditional pub...Real fires and nooks n crannies. Really good curry, fish n chips and kids bangers and mash. Volunteers working couldn't have been more attentive, warm and welcoming. Decent real ale and white wine that was properly chilled too. Can't wait to go back!

My wife and I visited the Raven Inn for lunch during February 2017. This is a community run pub, and was extremely freindly. Locals were chatty, services was good, food was excellent and toilets were clean. Dogs are welcome in the pub, and several well behaved dogs were around the bar area. There are tables outside for when the sun...
