Went for a family meal. All ordered something different. Slightly more expensive than other "chain" pubs but the home-made meal and size of portion more than made up for it. Glad we didn't have starters else we wouldn't have eaten it all. Lasagne had a lovely flavour - not too much pasta or sauce. Curry - half rice half chips - came with a big portion of both and loads of chicken in the curry. Would definitely go back to try something else… Read Full Review

The meal was mediocre found e black hair in my chips I use the chips word loosely as I would hardly call them chips as they were undercooked and potato scraps. The service was poor as we had to wait so long(good way to sell more drinks). Not value for money and none of our party will pay another visit which is a pity as the surroundings is very good… Read Full Review

I have been going to this place regular for meals but I was there yesterday and there was a couple sitting behind us that left their meals and complained that their food was cold and unfortunately our meals came and the garlic bread was black, and as soon as my steak came I could see that it was all dried up so that was a very poor meal I was very disappointed… Read Full Review

Just spent the weekend in Wales and had the pleasure of eating here twice! The pub was busy as Easter but very organised staff and the food very very enjoyable. We had a variety of dishes including XL burgers, home made chips, vegetarian pasta, chicken salad, rack of ribs, mixed grill. All enjoyed the food and the portions were so large difficult to finish. I thought the kitchen did remarakably well meeting high demands and the bar and restaurant staff were smart and polite. They also have… Read Full Review

Went for Sunday lunch recently and booked the 12.00 pm sitting. Arrived at 11.55 and the place was not open but did open doors by 12.00 pm. Ordered a drink and went to out table. Very disappointing as we were finally asked to go to the csrvary at 12.45 pm. The food is really nice home cooked and boiling hot cannot fault the meal. The service however was another matter if the pub is unable to serve the meal on time then they should not advertise the meal for 12.00 pm. Very disappointing… Read Full Review

Lovely friendly country pub. Lovely home made food, we would especially recommend the Wednesday carvery. Lovely well cooked food and an excellent choice of vegetables cooked to perfection. The beef which we had was beautifully tender and cooked as we like it. Lovely building with large car park and ideally situated for a relaxing meal or a drink. Nicely decorated, warm and welcoming. Would strongly reccommend… Read Full Review

Very Disappointing. Looks a lovely place from the outside. What a poor excuse for a carvery, two choices of meat, 1 roast potato and yorkshire puding (both obviously frozen), then a huge choice between cauliflower cheese, broccoli, peas, carrots and mash potatoe ( hard to tell if real mash or smash )!! then someone else to poor your gravy. Tiny plates that meant it all piled on. Childs plate was more of a saucer which meant again all piled on top of each other. Of outside area no designated… Read Full Review

I have been here several times and always found the experience first rate. The staff are really friendly and actually over helpful. Its not often you can find a place in the UK that ticks all the boxes. The food is of very good quality, a nice varied menu and a nice clean, relaxed atmosphere any time of the year.
Whenever friends come to visit I always take them there and without prompt they always come away very happy and surprised how good it was there. Definitely the place to eat… Read Full Review

The Dyffryn Arms is a good place.......relaxing, pleasant to look out onto the countryside, and I would recommend it for all ages. Judging by how many people go there, then a lot of other people share my opinion… Read Full Review

Eaten there a few times and the Food is always brilliant.
I mainly order the specials, and they are always impeccably cooked and change each week.
My favourites were the Monkfish and Prawn Thai Green Curry, and the Blackcrust Salmon Nicoise, which I had the pleasure of eating last night.
If you don't fancy the specials, there is an excellent range of standard pub fayre, and real ales, one of wich is replaced every few months… Read Full Review

Having been frequenting The Dyffryn Arms in Bryncoch, Neath, for a number of years, consuming their over priced and under sized meals, yesterday we had cause to complain about one of the meals, due to its misrepresentation on the menu.
To cut a long story short, the manageress took offence to our complaint and promptly barred us from the establishment and threatened to call the police because we would not pay for this particular meal.
She then said she would not charge us for the burger or… Read Full Review
