Warm and welcoming atmosphere. Service was amazing. The food was incredible and plenty of it. The Arancini Balls were cooked to absolute perfection! Opted for the Braised Beef Brisket, Sunday roast (I wasn't a fan of the beef, but that's just personal preference, nothing to do with the chef, etc. I would definitely visit again and pick a different meat) proper puffed up Yorkshire puddings, delicious roasties, Veg was cooked perfectly for me (although my partner not so much a fan of al dente veg) generous serving of gravy in a side boat. Would 100% recommend a visit.

Beautiful country pub , hidden in the countryside between Cardiff and Newport, first time visiting this place. Dining area tables a bit cramped together but overall a nice set up , we both went for the homemade steak and ale pie with puff pastry and chips and peas , the pastry on the pie was immense, highly recommend this dish , space beer garden out back , as you leave the car park turn left and the country houses dotted along the country road to Newport are stunning ( worth the drive just for the scenery πŸ‘

We came here for the T bone steak and we were not disappointed! It was amazing as it was a perfectly cooked medium steak and it was really tender. We had home made chips, mushrooms, tomato and pepper sauce. The steaks had come from the local butchers so they were really fresh. The service was good but the waitress could have opened the wine when she put the bottle on the table. It was a screw top bottle but it would have made a nicer dining experience to have had the bottle opened and the wine poured into the glasses. We would definitely return to try other meals on the menu.

Wow, what a cracking place to eat! Food was amazing and really generously portioned, staff were lovely, and we spent our entire meal basking in the sun! Location is very picturesque too, and with outdoor seating and a beer garden, very dog friendly (that said, I think they allow dogs indoors too!). Will definitely be coming here again to sample the weekday menu - the Sunday roasts were epic!

Great place for food, dog friendly in the bar. Good choice of every day pub food but also some more refined options for an evening meal. Lovely log fires & large beer garden with tables and umbrellas for when summer makes its next experience. Enjoyed Hake and chips with crispy gusting and the best twice cooked home made chips. The black and blue cheese burger was also immense! Highly recommend.

Good service. Excellent Sunday dinner, the pork was lovely. Pudding a little expensive but very nice. As we had a dropout they were very good and did us a takeaway to drop off. Decent pint of beer as well. Very enjoyable meal for father's day.

Been taking my mother to try various places for Sunday dinner, forgot to book somewhere but Cefn Mably Arms was one of the next on the list to try, chanced it, recommend you book as they're busy, staff were super helpful and squeezed us in for a quick bit of food, staff were very friendly and lovely, service was top notch and the food was some of the best Sunday dinners we've had in a long time... 5 star isn't enough... fantastic place, love a top quality country pub type place. Can't wait to go back it's being put on the places to return list. The pork main was absolutely amazing, so was the cheese cake dessert and the whitebait starter tasted so fresh you'd think they caught it just before cooking it.

What a little gem! Pulled up on a Sunday in the hopes that they might have space for us. It looked unlikely as the place is obviously a firm favourite in the local area but staff went above and beyond to find a free table to squeeze us in. Our group enjoyed a selection of fantastic offerings from the Sunday Roast menu. The entire party was full and satisfied by the choices; I had the vegi/vegan roast dinner option and it was so sumptuous and flavoursome. The combination of flavours was incredible! Warm, welcoming and the food was absolutely incredible 🀀 think I'll be comparing roast dinners to the one at Cefn Mably Arms for years to come!!

Ultimate Sunday Lunch - fantastic for the second week running - generous portions of superb fresh vegetables, thick tender meat and roast potato and parsnips - topped off with a giant Yorkshire Pudding and additional gravy. Warm welcome and great service and no under 12 year old added to our experience as busy grandparents nice to a child free zone, for an hour or two.

We dropped in out the blue mid walk. Reservations for indoors only but We almost didn't go in because as picture shows "Fully booked today sorry" we still asked and turns out yes outside was free they were very accomodating with placing us on a table outside. Table service outside in person so get attention of staff when you sit down (give them time they will see you soon - great people happy and friendly). No app to use for ordering and track and trace is manually done by masked staff you'll give your name and number. Wheel chair access looks tough as it's short steps down to main entrance (didn't see ramp may be wrong call up to confirm) Parking seems good although we walked in. Toilets indoors to the left for gents and ladies. They're taking reservations for dinner. Didn't pay so not sure about prices ! (Sorry should have been clear, my Farther in law paid and he wouldn't say how much it was! our meal was defo paid for ! :) )

I chose this for a special birthday meal for my husband and I am so glad I did. What a Gem of a place. I can't thank you enough. I had a Prawn Cocktail starter and T.Bone steak main and my husband had the Chicken Satay starter and Chicken Madras main. Absolutely out of this world ! I can honestly say this was the best meal I have ever had. 10/10 for everything from presentation to taste. 10/10 for service 10/10 for atmosphere. Thank you all so much for a very memorable evening.
