Be at ease, dear reader. "Mamhilad" is not a fearsome utterance, in some Middle Eastern tongue, meaning "death to the unbeliever". It is the name of the nearest village to this pleasant, far-from-terrifying pub.

There were four ales on when we called. Among them being Tribute and Atlantic. The other two were perhaps shuffling about, avoiding eye contact, because I don't recall them now, but the Atlantic was crystal clear and fresh.

Staff were friendly, good-humoured and polite - despite having to nip down to the cellar and draw each pint by gravity, owing to a temporary technical problem.

After a visit to the remote Goose & Cuckoo in Upper Llanover, we moved on to the first of two pubs in Mamhilad. The Horseshoe was my favourite pub of the day in Wales. It is a fairly small place that has friendly and professional service. The barman, chef and landlord took a keen interest. Ales were Mad Dog Y Ffoledd, Goffs Camelot & Tiny Rebel Cwtch. Then I noticed the selection of 6 ciders - Westons Old Rosie & Family Reserve, Gwynt y Ddraig Ancient Warrior & Farmhouse Scrumpy and Hallets Oak Aged & Blindfold. Hallets is one of my favourite producers and apparently they are based nearby here. We stayed for a late Sunday lunch, which was also very enjoyable. Recommended.

The Horseshoe Inn is well worth a visit. Amazing service with great choice of food at reasonable prices. Views from the exterior seating are really beautiful. Good range of beers and ales.

I can't say much more than chazzles to be honest - the renovation the girls have done on the old place is's like a totally different building, just within the same walls as before!
A friend & I went there on a weekday evening recently for food & I would go so far as to say it was the best pub food I have tasted in ages! I only wish I'd had enough room for dessert!
Lovely, family-run pub. Would thoroughly recommend! :)

i am pleased to report after a recent visit that the Horseshoe is back in business and is offering a modern twist on the classic country pub. Well kept ales and an interesting choices on tap - including Doom Bar and Brooklyn lager (which i don't think i've even seen in Wales before!). A superb choice of specials were also on offer, the local cider was top notch, as was our meal. Really pleasing to find this fantastic location has a pub to match. Full marks to the lovely landladies that have brought the Horseshoe back to life!
