Having visited this establishment on many occasions was surprised recently to be asked are you eating or only calling for a drink when our reply was a drink we were told that unless we were eating we couldn't visit,

Dear Elaine Please can you let me know who you were greeted by? Male/female, young /old? I am sorry that you were treated in this way as we are a pub after all, We are not in a habit of turning drinkers away, we may have to turn food away as we do not always have enough tables. Kind regards... More

Great little traditional pub with a warm welcome. Not a vast selection of ales but a fair one. Some good cyders on offer. If your visiting the area it's worth a warm in front of the fire.

Visited last Sunday for lunch on spur of moment. We rang and managed to book a table. Lovely old pub - roaring fire, friendly barman. My fiancé had the beef dinner and myself the chicken. Very tasty, lovely veg and plenty of it. Desserts were great too. Will definitely return

We were a group of 10 staying in a local cottage for my Nan's 80th. I had found Tai'r Bull online via trip advisor and as we were a large group I phoned ahead to book. The food was delicious, served hot and nothing was too difficult for the staff, all friendly and very helpful. The only thing that I... More

After a long hike in the mountains Tai'r Bull is a perfect place to warm up and relax at the fire place and enjoy a good English meal.

We stopped on the way to Cardiff from North Wales. It was a good place to stop to break up the journey, easy to find and easy to park. Friendly staff. Service was fast and efficient. Food was very good and decent sized portions. Good value for money.

We booked the whole restaurant for a large group for evening meal. Despite being at the limit of what the restaurant could book, we were so well cared for, and the food was all served promptly, and was of a very good standard. Well done and thanks to all at Tai'r Bull!

Great Sunday lunch (3 courses £15) - decent meat, veg was fine. Lovely puddings. Friendly staff, food was quick in arriving, nice atmosphere and lovely warm bar with a wood burner. Really convenient relative to Pen Y Fan

Stopped in at 6.00 pm after a day out and on our way home. A warm welcome. The bar area has tables at which to eat but the restaurant area is more comfortable and quieter. (No music piped in but you could still hear it coming from the bar. Not to my taste and a bit too loud.) Good Wye... More

A party of 10, we stopped here for lunch. It was Sunday, so it was their roast dinner offer 2 courses for £11-95 (not bad, pretty average for South Wales). We arrived around 2pm. The landlord was pleasant enough behind the bar, which is a nice rustic but very small area so not suitable for us to sit down as... More
