Business overview

The Maenllwyd Inn is a historic Chef & Brewer pub restaurant in the picture-perfect South Wales village of Rudry. Lying on the outskirts of Caerphilly and little more than five miles from Cardiff city centre, our traditional country pub's housed within a 400-year-old weathered grey stone former farmhouse. Perched on a ridge overlooking the Rhymney Valley, you can enjoy spectacular views as you sip one of our cask ales or a glass of wine in our beer garden. If you've worked up an appetite exploring the local area then you'll be ready for some tasty pub food. Don't miss our seasonal specials or pub Sunday roast. With free WiFi and disabled facilities, book your table at our dog- and family-friendly pub online now.

I wouldn't recommend it!

Unfortunately this so called country "pub" has reverted to a restaurant. I went for Sunday lunch and was very disappointed, 2 small carrots, 3 small sprouts not enough beef and the meal was served within 5 minutes of sitting down! This tells me that the meals are cooked beforehand and then microwaved when ordered. I wouldn't recommend it, definitely overpriced for what you get and I shan't be going there again!

Ive never had a bad meal here :-)

This is my default place for meals out on special occasions or just when I fancy a treat. Quite simply, Ive never had a bad meal here or a bad experience and I have high standards! On a sunny day the outside seating area is lovely and overlooks the fields surrounding the pub and the inside is cosy and relaxing. At Christmas the pub is decorated beautifully and really gets you in the spirit. For any occasion this is my favourite place and I noticed recently they now have an outdoor television.... Afternoons on the patio watching sport? Yes please :-)

Review for Maen Llwyd, Rudry

This is a well known and very busy pub/restaurant. It has a good reputation and serves good quality food. The pub itself is over 400 years old so expect a traditional setting. It is located in lovely countryside and has a good outdoor seating area as well. The food served is equisite and always includes a good variety of fish and meat such as steak, veal and sea bas. The food is always freshly prepared and well presented. They also do a good lunchtime menu and lighter meals. As the pub is popular parking can be a bit of a battlefield and there is an overflow car park across the road.
