A brand new tick for the website, we popped in on the way up to Borth for the Square Festival. I have to admit that I wasn't expecting much; the outside of the place hardly screams "pub!!!" in fact it looks more like someone's house. However, was pleasantly surprised. The inside is quite neat and spacious. The landlord was chatty (in a classic deadpan Mid-Walian way) and showed me the three ales that he'd only put on a few weeks before (it had been keg-only previously), which he said were selling well. Two were fairly mainstream (Revd James and some Greene King one) but he also has a revolving guest ale, the choices of which had been far more interesting. Sadly the guest was off as it had sold out (good news) so had one of the mainstream ones which was served well. Pub also features an outdoor covered seating area, which has some super views across the valley. Landlord also mentioned that he's up for sponsoring uni teams/societies (in return for said organisations to make a few trips out there to drink his beer!) - give him a ring.

In short, a good stop and will make an attempt to return sooner rather than later. Would certainly be worth a trip out by minibus to get a few in here and over the road at the Tynllidiart.
