“Thoughly enjoyable night out, very clean and tidy restaurant. We were served by Shannon who was very polite, friendly and helpful, food was delicious and hot. When we were finished we were not rushed to leave our table , but the is other seating areas if you would like to stay and have further drinks. The decor was warm and inviting, wonderful choice on the menu.

“Just visited the new refurbished Ivor Arms Pub in Brynsadler. It has been totally refurnished to a very high standard it is bright modern and very tastefully decorated.The food is excellent and the staff are friendly and efficient.
I had home made Cow pie and posh chips served with a side dish of vegetables and a jug of gravy which was delicious and even though there were 11 of us the food was piping hot.
The chocolate mousse was to die for.We will definitely be back again Thank you.”

“New owners have made a big improvement on this pub/restaurant. Redecorated and with friendly staff there was a nice buzzing atmosphere in the lounge and bar. Food was tasty gastropub style – yummy. I’m not keen on all the pots, jars and wooden boards that some parts of meal gets served in/on, which is fashionable in many restaurants now as it is here, but that’s me, maybe I’m a bit old fashioned. But the food was lovely and would highly recommend a visit to the Ivor and we will definitely be back again. “

“Met up with a group of friends for coffee followed by a lovely long leisurely lunch. Ambience was great, staff were attentive and the food was well cooked, beautifully presented and bountiful. Dessert was delightful (cappuccino mousse – YUM!). This was my second lunch at the Ivor Arms within a month and certainly won’t be my last.”
