Harden's survey result
Mark & Sue Manson’s rural Welsh pub/restaurant is becoming an “old favourite” in this neck of the woods (it’s now twelve years old). Strong points are meat and seasonal fish and they “now also have a range of local-ish gins at the bar as an added inducement” for a visit. “A bit off the beaten track, but very much worth the detour, as they say in the guides”.
“People are prepared to drive miles to visit this very popular (and deservedly so) rural Welsh restaurant”. It “never disappoints”: the “excellent” cooking is ambitious but without pretension; and the service “professional” but relaxed (“you get to pour your own wine”).
Albeit “quirky” and rather unassuming on the outside, this “unpretentious” ex-tollhouse (“run by owners who clearly love what they do”) continues to satisfy its fan club with its “super and interesting” food (including an “amazing value” ’squeezed middle’ lunch). It’s just gained an upstairs room too.
A “bit tricky to find”, and “the (former tollhouse) exterior is unprepossessing”, but this “wonderfully understated pub” does “food that is way better than lots of much flashier urban restaurants” – “no wonder the trophy cabinet is full of culinary accolades!”
