Service was friendly, food was very slow once ordered but as it was cooked fresh we didnt mind waiting. From here it goes down hill; 1. The food was well below the temperature required to make it taste good. Obviously two meals were cooked before two of the meals, as two were hot and two luke warm 2. No staff... More

Visited on Saturday night pub and Restaurant rather quiet. The service was excellent and the food being good but my only criticism is wasn't really hot enough. This may have been down to the fact we asked to wait 5 mins after finishing our starters with the main course being ready ? However would recommend !

There is nothing special with regards to the food in this establishment, I visited it with my family. it was busy and took a long time for our food to get to us, when it some of the dishes were cold and had to be sent back.

hi pete thank you for your review, however it states you visited us in December 2015, I don't understand why you feel it right to put a bad review on nearly a year later. We also do not have the same chef, this is very unfair. jayne john More

Had lunch at the Lamb and Flag today and found the food very disappointing. My fish and chips was mediocre - the fish in batter had obviously been microwaved and did not taste nice at all ! My husband and children however said their meals (burgers and chips) were ok. The service was so slow however that we opted to... More

We popped in on the way to Swansea for a quick bite. A lovely little pub with very nice staff and extensive menu. The food was lovely with ample portions. Certainly will pop by when passing again

Spotted this place while driving past on a Sunday. I remembered it as being a run down old boozer, but the place has bee transformed. The inside is very modern and comfortable. The Sunday carvery was excellent. Good choices, good value. Not tied to 3 courses, you could choose 1, 2 or 3. Children's prices available. The staff were really... More
