Called in for an evening meal.Food good. Good ambience. Bit quiet in dining area but comfortable. As soon as we walked in we were made comfortable and there were a number of locals that spoke with us. I had a pie for which the pub is renowned and my wife had gammon

If you're looking for a good honest boozer that serves home cooked food (as everyone says, the steak pie is great) you'll go far and wide to find better. We traveled as 3 blokes on a motorbike trip to Wales and stopped the night here before our trip to the mountains, Very friendly staff and owners and instead of an... More

Three of us arrived by train - a lovely line and a request stop at Knucklas! - and shown our rooms. They were clean, comfortable and just waht we wanted. There isn't much to see in this tiny village, but we visited the motte and bailey castle and admired the beautifully tended gardens. The bar was lively, and we later... More

We arrived after a long days walking to be met by Chris. She allowed us to check in early ( normal time is after 18.00 ) . The pub and food are outstanding but the rooms are just adequate. They are clean and warm but I was a little surprised to find the bathrooms carpeted. They could well start to... More

This was not our first visit here. We have been drawn back several times, and never left less than happily full. The restaurant in a room off the bar, is comfortable, not cramped, and there's an open fire creating a homely warm atmosphere. The menu is quite varied, but it was the pie we'd come for! The Castle Pie has... More

We arrived on a cold, damp Sunday evening after a long day of walking. We received a warm welcome and were shown to a room where a table had been laid ready for us. The service was efficient and friendly, and the food good and honest. Can thoroughly recommend the house pie. Each serving would feed a family of four!!!
