Food excellent, service very slow

We booked a table for six for 7 30pm. It was 7 50 before our drinks arrived and our food order taken. Starters did not appear until 8 30 pm. They were delicious, but did not warrant such a wait. Our mains arrived at 9 20pm. Again everything was lovely- slow cooked lamb, sea bass, pork loin, chicken... read more

A nice evening drive, taking the family for a meal, I was recommended the Nant Ddu Lodge!! I love my food, or should I say good quality, well presented hot food. The mushroom starter was one of the best I've ever had, followed by a stunning fillet steak. The chicken curry was also mouth watering, all the food was of... More

I do love this place. 2 courses drinks and bread £50ish for 2 people, which is very reasonable. We both had the chicken supreme tonight and we were not disappointed. We were quite late getting here tonight about 8.30. It did empty out by about 9.30 so we could here everything that was going on in the kitchen. Not a... More

This is a lovely setting in the Brecon Beacons. I was told the food was a little pricey but worth it. I'm not sure I agree. I had a chicken curry and it was nice, but not exceptional. Frozen chips don't measure up for me in what is supposedly a high-end restaurant. The service was very basic - not much... More

Nice and busy when we arrived, we both ordered the steak, my wife the fillet and myself the ribeye. Really fine ribeye... More

Visited on a Ncrowd deal. Wasn't disappointed. £59 for 2 people having a treatment and use of the spar all day. Had lunch which I must say was very tasty and plenty of it. In fact perhaps to much. Well worth a visit

We recently visited for lunch and enjoyed a lovely meal. The bar area was very busy so we ate in the side room. The menu is varied with lots to choose from. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals and will definitely visit again.

This is a little gem of a place. Little outside Merthyr, but well worth it. Food was just fabulous. So tasty and well presented. Staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely return when in the area again.

My Wife and I were in the area recently, so we decided to call for lunch. As usual the starters of garlic mushrooms and corned beef hash with fried egg were superb! The sirloin and rib eye steaks delicious. If there is anywhere better to eat in South Wales, will someone please let me know!
