Extensions have already begun for a better outside area in summer and the food is already very good and not expensive. The wine choice is a... More

Lovely family meal out at Cefn Mably for their three course Sunday menu. Good range of options, beautiful, hearty food, in a relaxed traditional pub setting equipt with open fire and dog. A little more pricey that I'd routinely pay but worth every penny - a real treat. There were a few problems during the course of the meal but... More

We called in on the hop one evening. Not many people eating. Service was good and food perfectly acceptable but I wouldn't go further than that.

I attended the Cefn Mably Arms last night with a party of sixteen. Having never visited the establishment since the new management and refurbishment we were very pleasantly surprised. From the moment of entering we were greeted by the owners and made to feel welcome. It obviously has its regulars who again were friendly, the pub had an old fashioned... More

Five of us had Sunday lunch here. The service was excellent and the food was of a great quality, we had a variety of meats between us and all were cooked to perfection. A great selection of vegetables and accompaniments too.

A group of 5 of us visited today for the Sunday lunch, after a recommendation from a friend. We were greeted with a very warm welcome. The pub itself is lovely and cosy set in the middle of nowhere which makes it all the more special. The service we received was great, the lady, who I presume was the owner... More

called in on a friday evening looking for a quiet pint and something to eat. stumbled upon this hidden gem (to us) in a country lane, quaint from the outside, clean and modernly quaint on the inside. enquired about food and was told they were fully booked, so having resigned ourselves to a refreshing pint of SA we took a...
