Delicious meals in a great atmosphere

We called in one Tuesday lunchtime and the five of us had a fabulous meal. The menu was extensive, catering for all tastes. I tried the Game Pie, which was superb. Service was friendly and helpful. Well done and thank you.

Hidden Gem

This restaurant was recommended to us

We arrived for lunch and were shown to a table in an alcove surrounded by windows, lovely and light. It is obviously a very popular place as there were a lot of tables reserved.

The Food and Service was superb. We chose the Venison and Belly Pork. Both were cooked beautifully

Always Perfect

Another fabulous Sunday lunch, they always manage to make whatever meat you order taste excellent, and the service , surroundings are great, makes the 50 Mile round trip from Pontypridd worth it .

Stunning Food, great service and cosy atmosphere as always.

My wife and I visit the cripple creek a few times a year as a special treat and it never fails to disappoint. The quality of food really is of a high standard and whilst some people will no doubt moan it is expensive, My opinion is that the quality is what you pay for and the portion sizes are more than generous and the menu and specials board are varied enough to cope with even the most fussy of eaters. Service was first class as always. See you again soon

Lovely Sunday Lunch

Enjoyed a lovely old fashioned Sunday lunch. Food, ale and service excellent and perfectly presented. Potted crab starter and Monmouthshire pork just perfect. Flavour of the meat was lovely and the veg cooked to perfection. All supported by a goodly pint of The Rev James ( Brains Brewery).

Currently my favourite restaurant consistently first class well done and highly recommended.

Excellent Food and Service

Called in on the off chance that we may be able to get a table.

We were welcomed and allocated a table straight away despite them being very busy. Food was served quickly and was very enjoyable. Would highly recommend this inn

1st Class Experience

We drove for nearly an hour and a half for a family meal here tonight….TOTALLY worth it, the staff were courteous, polite & extremely efficient… each course was absolutely scrummy and served in incredibly quick time considering there wasn’t a free chair in the whole place…not one of us could find fault with the food, the staff or the whole ambiance….Well done to everyone at the Cripple Creek….1st class experience from start to finish and can’t wait to come again…

‘We will look after you’ they certainly do that!

We have been guests at the cripple Creek for years. Never had a bad meal, we have celebrated birthdays wedding anniversaries.  I would always recommend this fabulous restaurant/pub to eat. Huw Bevan’s pork chop is a must!  ‘We will look after you’ they certainly do that!
