Nice and relaxing

I come here quite a bit as I am originally from the area and my family still live there. I generally always like the food as it is freshly cooked. It has a lovely homely atmosphere. But make sure you get there early for a pub meal if you have not booked on a weekend as it gets very busy.... read more

We ate at the Nant Ddu on a Thursday as it seems to be always fully booked at weekends! Once again the food was excellent and the service was equally as good. Our meals ranged from the confit duck, lamb to sirloin steak. The desserts, cheesecake (with toffee & apple sauce), sticky toffee pudding and the pineapple upside down cake... More

After a 5 hr journey we needed food. We ate in the bar/bistro. There was a lovely fire to greet. The food was beautifully presented. The staff we're really friendly and helpful. They listened as we explained we we're in Wales to care for our sick Nan in hospital. When we offered the bar tender/waitress a tip and she told... More

Really great food and friendly, attentive service. Would quite happily have eaten 2 or 3 of the meals on the menu - lots to chose from. Would easily go back to dine!

If you're visitng the Becon Beacons and want to stop off somewhere for a meal you won't go far wrong with the Nant Ddu. Set back just off the main road with plenty of parking you'll find a warm and friendly welcome with a good choice of food. We went for lunch and wanted more than a starter but not... More

I frequently attend the nant ddu lodge for family dinners and have had a few over night stays! Clearly the nant ddu lodge has many glorious aspects such as friendly staff; delicious meals, great spa/gym facilities and a great location! However there are minor faults! The guest bedrooms as lovely as they are there is a dramatic difference between those... More

This used to be the best restaurant in the area, things have declined a lot. The decor is in serious need of updating and the food that was once the best is now mediocre. We had the lamb and the pork - this is what we always used to have, however the food was not to standard. The staff and... More

Having been to The Nant Ddu Lodge once a month for the last 15 years it has sadly gone downhill of late. The decoration needs refreshing, furniture needs renewing and the staff need further training. The prices have increased but the quality of food has decreased. There seems to be a larger variety of bar staff than there used to... More

Nant Ddu looks impressive from outside but inside it is a little shabby & in need of renovation. The furniture is well worn & space is limited, our table which was just inside the door was set for four people but had the two chairs on the opposite side of the table been occupied the doorway would have been completely...

Nice atmosphere, great food, service was average. We were asked to leave our table by 9.45 so that the staff could clean for the morning?? There were 14 of us eating, so lots of funds spent here.
