This is a lovely pub, really warm and welcoming. It's right on the A473 between Treforest and Talbot Green with plenty of parking at the back. The inside has recently been redecorate with a warm neutral feel and the outside is currently being painted purple!
There's a good selection of real ales (my housemate is a CAMRA member and he loves their choices). For non beer drinkers then there are plenty of other options available both alcoholic and soft alike.
We often go there for the quiz on a Sunday and they put on a lovely selection of sandwiches and the friendly rivalry and banter is great. If you are going for the quiz, get their early to secure a table otherwise you won't hear the questions!
This pub is I think the most unusual that I have come across .The outside of the building looks in need of refurbishment and there is little indication that this is an inn during the day .However at night a string of lights proclaims its true function. Inside there is a further puzzle
as the door opens up into a large well lit area of chairs and tables these suggesting a restaurant rather than a pub No food was visible when I was there on a Sunday evening only a plate containing one or two sandwiches The whole of the customers were studiously engaged in a quiz at the tables. It was quite a while before the landlord appeared at the bar to serve me and although he was pleasant enough , I had the distinct impression that I was intruding on a private function . There were two draft beers on sale 'HB' and Speckled hen' I sampled the HB which was in first class condition with the added attraction that members of the campaign for real ale (CAMERA) showing proof of membership can buy beer at a discount ( 20p off a pint) Sunday night is always a quiz night and is obviously very popular. The quiz starts at 8.30pm and it is obvious that I should have attended earlier to obtain the full benefit of the evening. Friday and Saturday there is live music although what form this takes was not apparent. There is a car park at the rear of the premises but egress is difficult as the pub is on a busy bend.
