Came here on a Friday evening, was busy but not full so glad we booked ahead. Had a nice table in a quiet area where we could sit and chat. The food was really nice, good quality and nicely cooked, as you would expect from a Brains pub. Hunters chicken and steak were both really good. I'm told the cheesecake... More

Another one of the chain pubs serving standard fare. Pretty little setting and nice outdoor area. The pub is also nice inside and staff seemed attentive. Quality of food was mediocre - vegetable fajitas were swimming in grease. It's ok to sit outside for a pint on a nice day - but wouldn't rate the food. Also - not pet... More

Nice atmosphere in the pub. It is divided into two sections - the bar area and restaurant, though you can easily move between the two. The restaurant menu is typical of a brewery owned / managed pub. It gives plenty of choice and portion sizes are good. It is supplemented by a daily "specials" board. Quality of food is fine... More

A miserable wet evening outside inside good food warm temperature and fab atmosphere. A good menu something for everyone gluten free available Three courses for £11.50 and you'd imagine small potions but no good potions did not leave hungry. The staff are friendly and very helpful even taking photos for us thank you we will be back 😆

Love this pub, in the beautiful village of Penyfai. Enjoyed a lazy afternoon catching up with my sis over lunch and a glass of wine. The food is good quality and very reasonably priced, can highly recommend it.
