Mother's day Lunch

Went for lunch, the food was great and service was friendly. I last went to Nant Ddu about 15 years ago, and I am afraid to say I dont think they have refurbished or updated it since. Its desperately in need of refurbishment. Its a shame they don't make the most of the outside space - it was... read more

The basics are we booked an early table as we needed to leave by a certain time. When we arrived the restaurant was relatively quiet and so we figured that everything would run smoothly and we would be allowed to relax an enjoy our celebratory meal. It took nearly 90 minutes from ordering our main for it to arrive leaving... More

We stayed here when getting together with other family members. The rooms were clean and fresh, the surrounding countryside was picturesque. Staff were friendly and responsive. The food was very good. We have visited there a number of times before in previous years and will go again when in the area.

Spent the night at Nant Duu Lodge hotel and must say it was a great experience. The check in was efficient and the room was clean and tidy. On visiting the restaurant we were greeted by a lovely lady with exceptional customer service skills. I believe this was the restaurant manager. She couldn't do enough to help along with the...

Stopped off for a meal on travelling down from North Wales. We seemed to pay restaurant prices for bar meals. Chicken curry and plaice and chips. Two soft drinks for £30 + pounds. In the past we used the lodge facilities with a stay and could not rate it high enough. Last visit was five years ago but didn't realise... More

Warm cosy and friendly bar. Restaurant served top quality food with excellent service. Good choice of menu and wine to accompany. Fairly expensive but its worth it for the food. Thanks Mary I understand there is a spa here too so I plan to go back for a longer visit.

The Nant Ddu lodge is a great place to eat with a varied menu and superb setting. The staff are friendly and helpful and this is where my first taste of sticky toffee pudding happened. ( Never been surpassed).

We visited as a group of friends for a Christmas night out. Beautiful food, very friendly professional staff. It is a little pricey but as long as you are prepared for that. You won't leave dissatisfied.

Spent the evening here with friends. Beautiful setting and fantastic scenery. There is passing public transport but you really need a car to get here. The food is absolutely tremendous in both bar and restaurant. Not particularly cheap but well worth the money. Highly recommended.
