    Nostalgia made me Google the place again just now. Sad to find this .....

    GONE - Burnt to the ground - Roundyard is NO more :-(
    Passed back through Tarzali on the weekend and intended to stop in for a meal. Unfortunately there is only a concrete slab where once stood a fine little establishment. Signs of a fire was the only other remnant of a once cool little restaurant.

    Date of visit: June 2013

    The mispronunciation that irks me is the way people say their Welsh ‘y’ as an e. As in Pennny bont or Penny lan rather than Pen uh bont or Pen uh lan.

    Prior to last year, hadn't been back there since 92. Place has changed enormously. Different faces, but still has that healthy vibe about it. Can see myself moving back there at some point

    Some Welsh "Llan" place names lend themselves more readily to a single "anglicised" L pronunciation - Llandough, Llantwit, Llandaff spring to mind. Others like Llanelli, Llangrannog, Llandrindod work better with the "Ll". I think the rule of thumb is the nearer to Cardiff, the less the influence of the original Welsh.
