I have visited the Maenllwyd on many occasions but this was the first time on a Sunday. The Maenllwyd is a hidden gem in the countryside only two miles from Caerphilly. It has two car parks one situated adjacent to the Inn and one parallel to it.
We have always had good service and quality food, as was the case this Sunday the staff were exemplary as well. Mike the Manager once checking our reservation took us to our table he introduced himself and took time to chat to us. Our server was Jas who was always on hand to check if we were happy with the food. My wife had the shoulder of slow roasted Lamb and I decided on a trio of meats consisting of Topside of beef, turkey breast and pork loin with crackling, roasted Red Delicious apple and sage & onion stuffing. Both good choices including Goose fat potatoes and seasonal vegetables, my wife asked for extra gravy which was replenished promptly. The Lamb was £15.00 for one course which is the top end of the price I would pay .As I am Chef & Brewer loyalty member of which the Maenllwd is a part of, I receive promotional discounts so on this occasion we utilised a 40% discount voucher which brought the meal price to a tasty £9.00.We were treated no different so its plaudits all round for the chefs, Mike the duty Manager and all the staff on the day. After the meal we sat outside and admired the views of the rolling countryside. So a great setting, excellent food, courteous staff and a 40% discount what’s not to like.
