Dining Out

Sitting in the tranquil village of Oakdale, we are based in the heart of the South Wales Valley's. For recreation we are perfectly located to explore the Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains and National Cycle Routes.

In additional to a familiar bar menu, daytime, evening and children's choices are also available, plus breakfast deals and a specials board. Whatever you select, our prices are guaranteed to be affordable and our portions are generous. Our menu offers great variety from traditional Sunday Lunches to more unusual choices such as New Zealand Mussels or Loin of Tuna. We have a wide variety of meat and fish dishes, including fillet and rump steaks, lamb shank, gammon, tuna and sea bass. Our food has been described as "welsh rustic cooking well done" and "a feast for the senses" by the Cardiff Food & Drink Magazine. Our indulgent desserts and liquor coffee will leave you feeling completely satisfied!
