Eating Out, Accommodation, Guest House / B&Bs in Pontrhyd
The Abadam Arms offers not only comfortable rooms, but fantastic customer service. Under new ownership, the pub has gone from strength to strength with Lolanda and her husband Rhys at the helm and their dedication and love for this pub really did become apparent as I was being shown around. Many people think people who run pubs are living in the land of milk and honey, but I compare running one these days, it is like eating lobster. It’s a lot of hard work, for very little return! I suppose it’s just a way of life and this couple have taken to it like ducks to water. Offering great value for money, comfortable rooms and a cracking breakfast in the morning, what more do you need? But it’s not only the pubs rooms that are drawing people's attention, their reviews about the food here are also just as good.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Also recommended as one of our places to sleep in this chapter, the Abadam Arms and the food they’re creating is also turning heads locally. Good pub grub is what you’ll find here on their menu, but not just microwaved rubbish, the team in the kitchen really do care about the provenance of where their food comes from and where possible, the owners try and locally source as much as they can. As much as it’s about the food this endorsement, I have to tell you about the staff. On the day I visited, all the staff had smiles on their faces, like they absolutely loved working here, that cannot be said of a chain pub, which as you’ve probably gathered whilst reading this book, we don’t feature any. As mentioned at the beginning of this review, they have lovely rooms, so in my opinion, no need to look elsewhere.
