This place was absolutely appalling. The food arrived after an hour of waiting, and was cold. Most of the food that was ordered did not arrive at the table, therefore we had to complain about 5 times. The food orders were messed up, and while...More

We stopped here for breakfast on our drive through Wales. It's a little old looking but clean, the breakfast was nice and well cooked, the staff polite and helpful. I expect this place is a focal point in the town and can get busy We...More

Took over a hour to come, didn't think anything of the wait because it was busy but people were getting their food much quicker than us even though we were there before them? No apology for the delay and the attitude on staff pleasant.
