A hidden gem located just off the A472 in Monkswood is The Glascoed Pub, which is home to one of probably the best carveries in South East Wales.

Diners travel from all over the Welsh valleys and beyond to sample this feast of a meal every Sunday where they can indulge with any two meats, Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and plenty of fresh seasonal vegetables – served every Sunday from noon until 4pm.

What people may not know though, is that this traditional Welsh pub offers so much more from its extensive menu throughout the week, such as a fantastic lunchtime offer of two meals for £12 (served Monday to Friday from 11am until 4pm), all-day breakfasts, snacks and lite bites, options from the grill, as well as signature homemade Welsh curries and wholesome ‘hungry combos’.

For those who love a food challenge, why not tackle The Glacoed’s Jurassic Steak? This mammoth meal has a 50oz ribeye on the bone steak, a mountain of hand cut chips, a stack of onion rings, peas and a side salad, priced at £34.99. But, if you can clear your plate in under 20 minutes, you’ll only pay £20 – many people have tried the challenge and only a few beaten this epic meal, do you have what it takes?

As well as offering an extensive menu full of traditional pub grub fayre, also on the menu you’ll find a wide variety of vegetarian and vegan options too, with all dietary requirements and allergies taken care of – all you need to do is let one of the friendly staff members what you require, and they will easily provide alternatives.

Don’t forget, this a family-friendly pub so there’s plenty of tasty options for the little ones too, which are all priced at £4.95 where they can add an ice cream for desert for £1 extra.

As the grounds are home to a rugby and football pitch, sport is shown on large flat screen TV’s throughout the pub, including the up and coming Six Nations rugby, where punters can treat themselves to either a pie or a curry and a pint for only £10.

Another firm favourite with its regulars from its well-stocked bar are the gin teapots, priced at £6.50 each – choose from at least 20 different gins from around the globe.

So, if you’re looking for somewhere different to try this February, why not treat the family to a delicious home cooked meal at The Glascoed Pub?
