A must visit pub! OK, it only has Bass on but it is an experience to behold - the front room of the house is the pub. Did not see Bessie, but the barmaid was very friendly and poured the beer from a jug. If you go in early May, you'll get to see the beautiful Bluebells if you go on a walk up the Gwuan Valley.

I found this pub while I was on holiday with my girlfriend. I can only agree fulsomely with the other reviews on here. This pub is an absolute classic, a real gem. No fruit machine, no jukebox, no karaoke, just ale and good company. Bessie is a real diamond, she told us that she had been running the pub for over sixty years and it had been in her husbands family since 1845. They don't make pubs like this anymore, I only hope Bessie leaves it to someone in her family when she goes to the Great Alehouse in the Sky.

An incredible place, focussing on what makes a great pub - good beer and conversation. Truly a pub stripped down to the bare essentials in a fantastic location.

A must visit pub for the real ale buff. Only one ale Bass draught but always in tip top condition. Landlady Bessie is a wonderful lady. Don't let this pub pass you by, you will love it.

A very happy, recent return to this fantastic and uncut diamond of a pub. Mrs Davies was still on top form as was her draught Bass. Spent a late autumn evening in the little beer garden relishing the remains of the day in the beautiful Gwaun Valley. The night spent in gentle conversation with friendly locals and tourists alike. Unmissable.
