Stayed for two nights with my husband and five teenage daughters (truly!), slightly anxious about how we would be received and how girls would settle in a country pub. What a delight the whole experience was! Staff seemed to know just the right note to strike with everyone - not even any complaints about the food from the teenagers. Such...

A first rate pub and restaurant. We stopped for a quick lunch. The waitress (Nicola) was great - friendly, welcoming and helpful. The food was excellent. The pub is olde worlde but clean and smart. With easy parking it is well worth a visit

My husband, our Westie and I spent the bank holiday weekend at the Fox and Hounds and we had a very enjoyable stay. The rooms are very comfortable - ours was slightly larger, with a sofa - so nice and spacious and a great place to chill out when back from a day's sightseeing. The breakfasts and dinners each night...

Fantastic service. All the staff were attentive, had time to chat, helpful.....Lovely touches like different teas, fresh milk and cafetière coffee in the rooms. Delicious food in the restaurant and lovely breakfasts. A really comfortable, friendly place - felt really at home. Only downside (although maybe not for everyone!) was the lack of mobile service in the village....so don't plan...

This old inn is situated in a very small, beautiful village. It lies next to the an old church and church yard, to which there is a lovely view from the terrace. Even though the building is old, it is recently refurbished - in a nice and tasteful way. The restaurant was stylish, rooms beautiful and bath room modern. Food...

The Fox and Hounds takes a little finding after a long drive under the cover of darkness. Llancarfan is a small Welsh village situated on a single track road. It's worth the effort in finding though. The staff are attentive without being intrusive, the rooms are spotless, and the breakfast is excellent. The location (once found) is also perfect if...

A lovely pub located in a quiet village approximately 25 minutes from Cardiff, booked so we could see the Rugby International between Wales & Ireland. Made very welcome by the staff, room was okay with plenty of wardrobe space and a comfy bed, breakfast choice good and the Welsh breakfast very tasty. Only one downside was the price as the...
