We came here last year and loved it. It probably got even better. It was full which is always a good sign. The service was friendly and impeccable. The food was beautifully cooked and was timed to perfection. Scallops superb and the chips... But then everything was so good.

Ate at Cwtch with our son. Last minute idea and we weren't disappointed. Very attentive service and couldn't fault the food. Suspect it will become a regular haunt for us

We went to the Cwtch for a special anniversary meal. On the plus side, the service was very good and the atmosphere is excellent. My wife's main meal was not as described and my main - the steak - was not medium rare but raw. The cocktails were just unadorned glasses of a rather unattractive liquid and at £6 each... More

We had a lovely evening at cwtch* the food was gorgeous and it is in a little intimate setting which we really enjoyed. It was a little on the expensive some but worth every penny. We couldn't fault the wine, the food or the service, thank u very much.

We are in St Davids quite regularly and had heard excellent reports about Cwtch so we chose to go there for a special evening. I was concerned when we were shown through the bright and lively front room to a gloomy table in the back room. The menu and wine list seem excellent – the wine list looks to have... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. As requested, at the start of your evening, we turned the lights up in the back room for you so that it was bright in the cosy room and provided 2 tea lights for you. If we have other tables available, we are more than happy to accommodate requests to move.... More

We visited in April, and had the early offer. initially presented with a cube of bread each to dip in oil, unfortunately the bread was tasteless apart from the top. First course roasted red pepper and tomato soup: I couldn't taste any roasted pepper. The soup was OK, but tasted more like tomato soup with a splash of cider vinegar.... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us, it is a shame that your autocorrect has changed some of your comments and may confuse. Extremely disappointed with your comments especially as we check with every guest as to how their meals are to ensure that anything that is not being enjoyed can be put right at the time. We...

We had a very nice meal in Cwtch over easter 2015. Cwtch has a menu with 2 courses for £26 and 3 for 30. My advice for 2 people is to have one starter and one sweet and two spoons. The portions are generous. We had local dressed crab (with granary bread) for starters which was delicious. I then had... More
