Went here with a very large group of friends, we had all pre ordered from a varied, 'early bird' set menu and none of us were disappointed. Some members of our group changed their mind last minute but the staff were happy to accommodate and were highly organised. The timing for all courses was perfect for such a large group.... More

Had a lunchtime meal with some friends on Friday 13th, we all ordered from the set menu at £9.50 which consists of a main course and dessert. Service very good and we were advised that there were a few large tables booked in so if we wanted to eat quite soon then to order straight away otherwise we might have... More

Lovely Sunday lunch in The Old Cottage with friendly cheerful polite staff. Desserts are gorgeous although a little expensive at five fifty.

I have lived in Bridgend all my life and I didn't find out about this place until a few years back. I came here on a works meal and needless to say I was shocked, I walked down the street into a little random door in which I wouldn't have ever thought to look at twice in the past. Once... More

Called here today for lunch with a friend - haven't been for a while, and to be honest, we couldn't get into poco poco! But we were not disappointed and enjoyed our lunches very much and very good value too - Moroccan style lamb with naan bread was delicious - will def remember this place next time in town 😊

This isn't far from where I live. The building is lovely and old but been refurbished as a fantastic eating place. The food is amazing. The staff are very accommodating, friendly and approachable. Really really lovely. Highly recommended.

Went the weekend before christmas, it was very busy but the food didn't take long at all. The pate was delicious and I had the turkey which was devine. With extra yorkshires and roasties given too. It really is well worth a visit

Well where do I start? I mean, really.. The food was amazing! I came here with my partner for New Year's Eve and had their NYE Gala menu (5 courses), and each one was superb. No, outstanding! The food was crammed full of flavour and each one so delicate; I didn't want it to end. I particularly liked the main... More
