The good pub guide review

A fine range of six real ales on handpump or tapped from the cask is served by the friendly landlord in this historic pub. These might come from breweries such as Bass, Glamorgan, Gower and Wye Valley; they usually hold beer festivals in August. There's also a good range of local farm cider and quite a few gins and malt whiskies. The unspoilt main bar with its massively thick stone walls used to be a scriptures room and mortuary (this was once part of a 15th-c monastic grange): there are ancient ham hooks in the heavily beamed ceiling, an intriguing arched doorway at the back, broad flagstones and a log fire in an inglenook fireplace with a side bread oven that's large enough to feed a village. The comfortably informal mix of furnishings that includes three fine pine settles;. The front garden has picnic tables. A beautiful walk from the pub leads through the wooded valley of Cwm Nash to the coast, revealing a spectacular stretch of cliffs around Nash Point.

The good pub guide food review

The good, nicely priced food includes baguettes and ploughman's, salmon and coriander fishcakes with sweet chilli dip, sausages (vegetarian or smoked garlic, wild mushroom and pork) with new potatoes, mash or chips, vegan five bean chilli, pan-fried fresh mackerel fillets with sautéed potatoes and roast cherry vine tomatoes, chicken curry, butternut squash and sweet potato curry, beer-battered cod and chips, and desserts such as bread and butter pudding and sticky date pudding.
