      What a find! Turned up on spec on the bikes in the way to Clywedog Reservoir and so glad we did. Lovely home cooked food, very warming (and it needed to be!) and such good service, friendly and attentive, just right. Thank you.

      Visited with friends after a long walk in the rain. Blown away by friendly welcome and brilliant selection of vegetarian pies. Bar staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating, left feeling very satisfied and happy. Thanks!
