We booked a table for 1pm to celebrate a friends birthday. We all chose from the 5 main courses but 2 were not available unfortunately. Nearly an hour later we were told there was a problem with the lamb (some had been over cooked) The food was delicious as were the desserts. The restaurant was full with only 2 staff... More

We had a very nice 3-course dinner here. The food was of a good standard, nothing spectacular, but good honest cooking. The service was efficient but could have been a tad friendlier. However we got chatting to the bar staff and owner afterwards who were really friendly and added to a pleasant experience. We will certainly eat here again when... More

We arrived and were greeted by very friendly staff. Given menus to order our meals before entering the restaurant. We decided, only to be told that most of the things we wanted were not available! staff were most apologetic. When our revised choices were delivered to our table they were not what was offered on the menu. Again staff were... More

After a hike around Tal-y-Bont and the hills we stopped off for a couple of beers at the Black Lion in the mid afternoon. There is a nice outdoor seating area overlooking the green where we could sit with our dogs and take in the village ambience.

Shaun the boss and Dave are two great chefs the menu is updated... More

Delicious food, excellent service, highly recommended. Wide selection of gins available + regular bus service back to Aberystwyth should you wish to leave the car at home!

Y Blackpool Talybont offers a range of ales wines and beers along with a interesting menu. After visiting on numerous occasions for gatherings for lunch with work colleagues I have found the meals reasonably consistent. The Blac doesn't however offer accommodation which is a bit of a pit fall For such a large hotel.

We have been for a meal at Y Blac before, but today's meal was superb. My wife and I had the same starter, smoked salmon salad, it was well presented and enough to provide an appetite for the main course. I chose the welsh lamb rump it was cooked to perfection, tender and pink and the vegetables were a good... More

We stopped in Talybont last week on our way back from Aberystwyth. We tried the hotel/pub next door to the Black Lion (where yBlac is located) but received poor service and their food standards agency rating was low so we decided to try somewhere else. We gave yBlac a try. There is limited parking outside, but we were able to... More
