A warm and welcoming pub that sells 'Best Offa' cask beer, proceeds of which go towards supporting the Offa's Dyke National Trail .
Saved from the threat of almost certain closure after being bought, against all expectation, to be run as a pub, this gem of a pub with its nationally important interior is selling real ale for the first time in some three decades. That in itself exemplifies the new life that has been brought to the place. The few physical changes have also been positive - carpet tiles removed, revealing slate floor, and excellent decorations including photo of Cemmaes Road signalbox (the pub is opposite the Beeching-closed station) and 1935 local eisteddfod poster, found in loft, which evokes a vanished but still resonant way of life. Unmissable, but obviously to be treated with respect. The single guest beer is always from a fairly local brewery, often Monty's.
"Turned up cold and wet with nowhere to eat or stay. Friendly owners made us so welcome and even shared some food from their barbecue. What a great place!! "
