Won't rush back
Stayed 1 night last week. Given a "disabled" room which was set up for 2 adults and a teenager. Very, very basic. Looked like the ceiling was held together by 5 screws! The ceiling was moving as those above walked around. No toilet rolls, dirty mug and half full glass of water waiting for us. Nice.Felt like we were trying to sleep in a shed placed on the carpark. Very noisy over night as close to the road. Even noisier in the morning when everyone sorts out the empties in the bins etc. We all had a crap nights sleep. We did go for breakfast in associated cafe called Ty Morgan next morning (very closeby) and that was superb. Quality food well cooked and delicious coffee. We had a meal in the restaurant. The restaurant itself was fine and comfortable/smart. Food was ok but nowt to rush back for. Mixed grill was all well done even when steak was asked to be medium rare. Not even close. Chicken curry was very oily. Others in our group had pie which was good. Covid-wise they have implemented a kind of one way system which some used, some didn't. All drinks were good and staff pleasant and helpful.

wouldnt really stay again....
The room was really really basic. One child couldn’t sleep in the second bedroom as there was a wall cupboard that the door was caved in. We didn’t use the lounge as the sittees were not too pleasant. The carpets didn’t see too clean and the place just needs a complete refurb. Only there for one night luckily. The pub however was lovely and clean and food and staff were excellent!!

Never again
Uncomfortable & noisy. Mattress very soft & lumpy. Street noise overpowering & downstairs noise from patrons drinking on the street after the bar closed didn't help. Instructions for accessing wifi were completely useless & the bar staff couldn't help. Continuing confusion about breakfast. Bar staff upon arrival advised breakfast was included in the room rate at the nearby eatery (owned by the same people as own the Lamb & Flag). All we had to do was say where we were staying. Upon arrival the next morning, however, we were told we would have to pay for our breakfast. Our advice -- go elsewhere.
