All you'd expect from a thriving village local, from pub games in the fire-warmed bar to real ales from respected Welsh microbreweries such as Rhymney and Cwm Rhondda. Originating as a drovers' stopover some 300 years ago and reputedly haunted, this pub is located in superb walking countryside. The varied menu combines the best of Welsh ingredients with influences from Europe and further afield. Start with five spice pulled pork, hoi sin sauce and Chinese pancakes; or lamb cawl
with leeks, root vegetables, pearl barley and thyme; follow that with Glamorgan sausages, bubble-and-squeak with red wine and onion gravy; beef and ale pie with home-made chips and peas; or chicken and coconut curry with roasted Scotch bonnet chillies.
