4 of us (plus dogs) called in on Easter Sunday - completely unplanned and grabbed a table in the courtyard. We only intended having a drink and a snack but caught sight of the dinner that other guests were having, so convinced ourselves we should go for it. It was a little after peak lunch period, and I think we got the last of the roasts.

Service was really good - everyone really friendly. But the meal was really good. Two of us had the beef, and two had turkey. Both meats were cooked beautifully and very generous helping. The veg similarly really good. And piping hot.

Sadly, after stuffing ourselves, no room for a dessert. So next time, we'll go for the smaller portion and have a cake!

The rest of the menu looked tempting too. So very much looking forward to a return visit soon.

Visited on a Sunday to receive a friendly welcome from the staff in this cafe style restaurant which is obviously well thought of by local residents. The menu had a good range of dishes with Roast Lamb or Turkey available fir those who wanted a traditional Sunday lunch. We chose the brunch option and enjoyed an award winning breakfast. We can both also highly recommend the hot chocolate, particularly with amaretto.

Lovely cafe, small and very homely, fantastic food especially the prawn salad ( a must ). Lovely out door seating area in the summer with pond, takeaway service too

We enjoyed a great breakfast at Yr Hen Efail and the service was excellent and fast.
They have a choice of a small or large breakfast; I should have listened to a friend who had eaten here previously and warned me the large was large! It certainly was and I failed to finish, but thoroughly enjoyed it.
The quality of the ingredients were great, especially the bacon.
If you enjoy a good breakfast, this is certainly worth a visit. They deserve their reputation for excellent breakfasts.
Thank you Yr Hen Efial.
