I've been to the Roast Ox a few times over the years and recently stayed two nights as part of a Freerein riding holiday. Tony runs a warm, friendly and fun pub with truly excellent food! Literally huge portions of all the best pub classics at very reasonable prices - i think i put on a stone. bedrooms are basic...

My wife and I make periodic visits for Sunday lunch and have always been impressed with the quality of the food.Our most recent visit was on 5th February 2017 and the food was outstanding, in particular I should mention the quantity and variation of the vegetables. It is pleasing that the quality of food and service is being maintained to...

Three visits over 2 days! Popped in for a refreshing ale, back for the Wales v England 6 Nations game and then the following day for a pre-booked Sunday lunch for 12 of us. Excellent hospitality and fantastic food. If it wasn't so far away we would return more often!

If you like dogs then this is a great place to stay; if you don't, probably best to give it a miss. The room was comfortable but the air freshener didn't quite hide the underlying dog fragrance! There was a pair of table lamps beside the bed but there didn't appear to be anywhere to plug them in... So it's...

Very warm welcome from the staff on a very busy evening. A good and wide selection of meals to choose from. Fish chowder on the specials board was excellent. Gammon on the regular menu was very good too. Portions are vast.

We were staying in a nearby village and found the Roast Ox one lunchtime. Great food with large portions of largely local produce. Also a well kept pint of a local brew. Came back for a couple of meals and the standard and service remained high.

Stayed here for a week whilst working at the Royal Welsh and have eaten here on numerous occasions over the last couple of years. Tony is a brilliant landlord and works his socks off. The food he and the chef produce is wonderful with imaginative Specials on most days, all based on the fresh produce he gets delivered to him....

The Roast Ox is set in beautiful surroundings with parking and some outdoor seating provided. Inside it has a proper old pub/restaurant feel to it, although it is mainly a restaurant there is ample room to sit down for drinks if that is what you are looking for. We went for a last minute meal here and although the restaurant...

Stayed at the Roast Ox (for the 2nd year now) on a Free Rein holiday based at the pub. Rooms very comfortable and Tony very welcoming and nothing too much trouble! The food and service each night was excellent. Rooms very comfortable and clean.

Firstly - the food was very good, rooms well let say left a lot to be desired. Stayed for the Royal Welsh - rooms not cleaned or towels changed for 3 days, when clean towels did arrive - that was it no cleaning with exception of the bins being emptied. Couldn't make tea - only milk available was on the...
