Superb dining room and food to match

The dining room and views from it are stunning. The service was excellent and the three course lunch was delicious and plentiful. Superb value for money given the high quality of food served. Strongly recommend a visit; book and ask for a window table.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel back in October and were so impressed with the quality of the food that we booked a return visit for Valentines. On our first visit we tried the Gentlemans Tea - a savoury take on the traditional Afternoon Tea - we were blown away so decided to try their Traditional Afternoon Tea... More

When we booked for the NYE gala dinner there was no mention of entertainment, never mind a singer with backing tracks and a Mic about 6ft from our table. He had an ok voice but the volume was excruciating, we couldn't talk without shouting, crooning was definitely not our friends' or our style nor pop, I know a lot of... More

We have been to this restaurant about four times but this is the first visit since I started to write reviews. The view is excellent although the first time we have managed to actually sit by the window. Our starter of belly pork with black pudding was nice but I felt it was a little bit tough and I would...

If you want a meal with a view, you won't find anywhere better, however if you want a good meal, you'll find many better alternatives. We ate as part of a largish group on a Sunday lunch and from sitting down to being presented with our desserts took over two hours. I had the squid starter which was good, the... More

The view over the Usk was amazing. Sadly the food was not as good as the last time we ate at the restaurant. Calves liver starter was tasty, but was dumped hot onto a salad with wilted. The lamb main course was overcooked, and very ordinary. Puddings were excellent however. No tablecloths on the tables which was a pity. Also... More
