Despite being very busy the manager found us a table and we only had a short wait for our food. I had the Cod and my wife had the Slow Cooked Lamb. Both were beautifully cooked and... read more

We stayed at a B&B down the road and visited the spa for the day on a £55 offer which included a 55 minute treatment and £10 towards lunch. Staff on reception were lovely, we used the gym for an hour before using the warm swimming pool and the hot Jacuzzi. There was also a steam and sauna room. We... More

Lovely evening meal in the bar. Had really well cooked and presented fish - more akin to restaurant quality. Lovely setting. Also a spa and hotel - didn't sample these but the information looked good. Reasonable value and friendly folk

Been a while since I've eaten here but we were not disappointed. The slow roast lamb was absolutely amazing along with the raspberry and chocolate trifle. Will certainly be visiting again (maybe even today) it was that good :-)

We have visited here on a number of occasions - usually for a "special treat" such as a birthday or an anniversary. Each time we visit the food is of a consistently high quality. We have the benefit of only living a few miles away in Merthyr Tydfil so will usually use a taxi service to get there and back... More

Their menu was imaginative, not cheap, but well cooked and well presented. Accordingly, it was good value. the staff were attentive and helpful, but unobtrusive. The Cwrw beer was excellent.

Another visit to the Nant Ddu restaurant, weekday lunchtime so moderately busy but not packed and were able to get a seat straight away. Good selection on the menu ordered starters and main courses but took about 10 minutes standing at the bar to order (as requested) as the one lady there was dealing with with a customer query and...

We came here for our anniversary meal and loved it. The menu is a nice mix of traditional foods as well as things you wouldn't see elsewhere. It's also changed regularly to keep it fresh and make you want to come back to try new things. It's slightly expensive, but when you eat the food it's understandable as it was... More

Met family here for lunch, have been going here for over 20 years on and off, food is still great and a varied menu. This time service was a bit slow, though it was busy so you sort of expect it and as regular customers you put up with it. Girls behind the bar very helpful and quick. Meals were... More
