      We only popped in a for a drink after a very hot walk up in Hafren Forest but were given a warm welcome, a really great pint of HPA and a chat about refurbishing some of the original fittings. Nice looking food menu too. Worth...More

      So we went here having seen reviews on TripAdvisor, I enjoyed the ambience from the moment I walked in, the barman was very helpful and accommodating, drinks were very reasonable and food was great too. What more could you want!

      We stopped here on route home from holiday and had the most wonderful friendly welcome. The food was fantastic, especially the cooked chorizo. Highly recommend!! We really hope to be back when we are next in the area.
