Would have given a full 5 stars the food was excellent so to the staff and venue. only thing that lets it down is the cheap table cloths and the poor selection of vegetables.

I visited this restaurant with work colleagues, there was a fair amount of us about 14 odd and I have to say the service was brilliant, didn't wait long at all, 5/10 minutes at the most. The food was amazing, hot, and just enough to feel quite full when you finished. I had two courses, the steak pie with chips... More

Excellent food, well presented and served by very friendly staff. The food was so good not one of our party of 4 left a morsel on their plate. Good choices throughout the menu and good sized portions. We had a fabulous evening and will definitely visit again next time we are in Bridgend. Do not be put off by the... More

4 of us dined on a Saturday night, we arrived slightly early but were taken straight to our table (booking highly recommended). It was busy but staff were attentive without being intrusive, gave us ample time to order and the food wasn't long in arriving. The thing to remember is it's not a fast food restaurant so well worth the... More

We frequently dine at this restaurant both as a family party (about ten people) and often on a lunchtime just two people, We have never had a bad meal or anything at all that isn't excellent. The atmostphere is very relaxing and the service is excellent too

We visited this restaurant yesterday and enjoyed a delicious meal. We went at lunch-time which meant that we could enjoy the special offer of a main meal and a dessert for £9.50. This was very good value for money. We were greeted by friendly staff who made us feel like valued customers for the whole time that we were in... More
