The Daffodil is a Michelin-awarded food-led country pub, with high quality Shepherd's Hut accommodation (bookable directly via The Daffodil website and via Air B&B) in the pretty rural village of Penrhiwllan. Located 4 miles from Newcastle Emlyn, midway between Cardigan, Carmarthen & Aberystwyth, it's an ideal location for a few days rest or a relaxing meal in scenic surroundings.

Food at The Daffodil is freshly prepared using the best quality local produce wherever possible. The menu, available to guests eating in the restaurant, bar areas and outside decking over-looking the unspoilt valley incorporates dishes appropriate for full three-course dining and for those wishing for more traditional bar-meal-style dining. Guests can watch our chefs working in full view in our gallery kitchen, or enjoy the unspoilt view across the valley, eating on the south-facing decking.

    Last minute reservation for my birthday - we were so lucky to get a table at the Daffodil after chancing finding somewhere to dine on our weekend in the area! Staff were great, it got quite busy after we arrived but this didn’t affect our service or waiting times which meant we had a brilliant experience. Definitely somewhere I would recommend :)

    We had booked a table for four and were invited to sit on a table by the patio doors, overlooking the valley, which was lovely. Although the restaurant was busy, being Sunday lunchtime, it did not feel too crowded. The staff were pleasant and efficient. The starters we chose of squid and garlic mushrooms were delicious and the roast meats of the main course were flavourful and tender. We all cleared our plates but had room for pudding. It was a real treat and we look forward to returning.

    Had dinner at the Daffodil many times but not brunch, until now. Well .... the full Daff with black pudding, yum. The Veggie breakfast was received as "I think that's the best veggie fry-up I've ever had". The truffle eggs were a huge hit too. One to go back for apparently. What can I say? Alex and the crew delivered big-time and every time we visit Penrhiwllan we always manage to make it to the Daffodil and for good reason. They do good food, well. Thanks again.

    Always a great experience visiting the Daffodil. Imaginative and varied menu with a vast selection of craft beers, lagers, ciders, wine and spirits. Warm and friendly service and pet friendly. Food of great quality whether you are having a light brunch or a steak.

    One starter - okay although soda bread toasted dry and hard. Brisket (main) - this was tasty and well presented. However other starter was altered by the chef without agreement. Partner has a food allergy and chilli sauce removed from prawn dish meant dish was not as expected. Partner wasn't notified of this change and upset as another starter could have been chosen from the menu, if chef 'didn't want to risk serving the chilli sauce' this should have been conveyed to us so alternative starter chosen. Vegetarian main was slap dash. Vegetarian beetroot wellington was placed on top of the Sunday roast veg. This gave the appearance of a Monday pot luck of Sunday leftovers! very disappointing as this was a birthday celebration. Have eaten in The Daffodil Inn a while back and standards were very high, that was reason for choosing kit for a special celebration. Take 'pot luck' which will be 'hit or a miss'.

    Normally excellent there, but Drinks came 25 mins after we arrived, the starters even arrived before the drinks. Service was not as good as normal there, bringing other tables food to us but it was next doors tables food. Over 10mins before having the dessert menu after asking us if we would like anything. Few items on the menu missing. Just disappointing as normally it’s our go to place for food.

    Booked a table for 4 people for 7pm to catch up with friends we had not seen in a while. 2 of the party ordered ribeye steak which was fair only and very expensive. We had to always search for waiters to order drinks, not attentive at all! Waited over 20 minutes for pudding while watching kitchen staff do nothing but chat! Had to ask again where our dessert was! It was cold in the restaurant and ate with my coat on! And to top it off at 9:30 we were asked to leave in 15 minutes!! Disappointing!!! 😤

    We are now regular visitors to The Daffodil we have been coming almost every Sunday for a year for their famous Sunday lunch and now we have discovered their other menu and it is to die for! With which is questionably the best steak I’ve ever tasted, the use of local produce is a credit to the area. Could not recommend more. Thank you for delivering the best quality food and service every time we visit see you all soon

    Simply fabulous as usual. Great ambience. Food was faultless and abundant and arrived at our table less than ten minutes from ordering. My Christmas Dinner was huge and my husband's hake was succulent with light and crispy batter. No room for a desert. Best meal ever.
