Extensive wine list, beautiful location, attentive staff

The experience of this restaurant begins before you even enter the building. Set in a beautifully built mansion, the exterior is traditional without looking too formal. I was very surprised to see a doorbell on the front door, and at first had assumed I had com across the wrong address. All this... read more

We arrived a little early we were made welcome immediately. The meal was the taster menu and it was magnificent, beautifully presented and the service was excellent. The waiters were very knowledgeable about the food that they were presenting and the wine they suggested was amazing... Definitely the place for that very special occasion..

I cannot praise The Park House highly enough.We had my sons wedding reception and the evening celebrations there, and the attention to detail was second to none, the staff could not have been friendlier and more helpful, and the food was simply outstanding. It was lovely to go there prior to the wedding to look at the different rooms available,... More

I visited this restaurant as a birthday treat from my girlfriend and as such she had opted for the 7 course taster menu with wine pairings. This gave me a lot of excitement even before our visit.

My wife and I decided to ease the pain of the painful defeat of Australia by England in the First Ashes Test by trying Park House . We were not disappointed . Any restaurant that has Jim Barry's " The Armagh" available by the glass warrants serious consideration . The house made breads were excellent . A pate macaroon amuse... More

I write a lot of reviews and rarely give five stars as I believe that this accolade should be reserved for something very special. Park House fully deserves this rating. The interior is like a Manor House with a wood-panelled dining room. We had excellent,attentive and friendly service throughout the evening, starting with cocktails in the lounge, leading on to...

We were so looking forward to dining here after it was recommended by ' Foody friends' In particular as a potential Michelin star restaurant in Cardiff which is what the city deserves. What a fraud! Everything was wrong, the welcome, the service and worst of all the quality of food! Top class chefs ? We saw no expertise here with... More

Apart from the historic architecture of the Burgess building, this is an excellent venue for a special occasion. My 60th birthday is one of those and we really enjoyed our 7 course taster menu with the matching wines. Great staff, the sommelier was very knowledgeable and imparted his knowledge of each wine matching each course with a friendly air. Highly... More
