A nice surprise

We had been staying in ebbw vale for the wk/end and our daughter recommended going here. Went on the Sunday for carvery I thought it might be a little bland when it's done for so many but I was pleasantly surprised. Staff were very friendly and helpful and we would to return.

Still a great venue for Sunday lunch and certainly the best value for money. Really good selection. But beware of the kids with their hands in everything and not supervised by their parents. Not the restaurants fault. Just a tip. Ask for an alcove seat. It's quieter and away from the kids

I have to start by saying that the meat was cooked very well - not dried out like most carvery food. That's the good bit. If you like watery vegetables and grey mashed potato with the opportunity to pile your plate so high it falls onto your tray this is the place you. The queue for the food was 45... More

When we arrived, and made ourselves known to the staff they showed us to our table. We ordered the carvery which was superb also the sweet which was a sundae. This was undoubtedly one of... More

Little communication from waiting staff and when did most of them with the exception of a a young barman were rude and unfriendly. Had to wait 25 mins for a starter without being told it would delay our other meals... More

Arrived to a grunt by one member of staff and that was the highest level of communication we received all evening. Food was ok, but again, carvery chefs very rude. Made for an all together awkward and unplesent experience.
