A great pub and they do lovely meals especially the sizzler ones! Good value for money too
The Mountain View has always struck me as a strange case. It's the only pub in Mochdre which is a large and predominantly working class village. The lack of competition should help to make this place a success.
The problem is that it's always been run more as a restaurant than a pub. The largest part of the premises is set out as a food area with a small public bar tacked onto the side. About ten to twenty years ago it had an excellent reputation and people travelled from miles around to eat there. That reputation has now faded away (although to be fair it isn't a bad place) and it's clearly now struggling. This is evidenced by the regularity at which the 'Under New Management' banner appears above the front door.
I suspect that many locals have felt alienated by the way the pub has been run in the past, I lived in Mochdre for a while and rarely went there, and with the general downtown in the pub trade it will be a struggle to recover.
