We stopped in whilst visiting friends. We were a couple and a 5 month old. We were instantly made welcome despite the place being very busy. The food choice is original and very good. The pizza oven is a wonderful touch. I opted for the chorizo flat bread and was not disappointed. Not lots of room if you have bulky... More

This was my first visit to Arboreal, and I would highly recommend. Very relaxed dining and lovely bright conservatory area in the back. A limited menu but the pizza I had was tasty - I am also generally not a 'pudding person' but the chocolate fondant was very nice!! The restaurant suits its Cowbridge surroundings very well, and if you... More

I always include Arboreal on my agenda when working in this area. The food never fails to impress, cooked in front of you in an open plan kitchen. As a non-meat-eater, there is never any issue with finding appropriate delicious starters and mains. The presentation is always superb with attention to detail. The menu is not extensive, but always varied... More

Loved it! Was a busy Saturday lunchtime but after a short wait we got a table. Simple menu but enough choice - enjoyed being able to see the kitchen at work as they prepared our flat breads. Very tasty food only thing that let it down was I thought it expensive for what we had. That said I would go... More

This small but beautifully formed establishment offers a warm welcome. Staff seem to greet each customer like old friends, just like coming home. The decor and atmosphere are pleasing,they will even turn down the great music, when requested. Its always fun to try and name the music or artist, they play some good stuff. The menu is good if you... More

Due to the pressures of every day life we haven't been to Arboreal for a good while, we were passing today and popped in, we were immediately reminded of why we love this place. Great young friendly staff, fanatic coffee and lovely local fresh food. Arboreal has a great atmosphere about it. A real jewel in the Crown of Cowbridge.

Had an amazing evening at Arboreal to celebrate the new year! The food and staff were excellent as is always the case! Mushroom Bruschetta was delicious as was the steak and ale pie! The singer made the evening perfect! Definitely returning New Year's Eve next year and many times before then! Happy new year to everyone at Arboreal!

I came here with my family and had a 'hot' pizza which was the best outside Naples. The carrot cake was really tasty and the squeezed orange juice was a treat! The staff here are extremely friendly and kind. They made me and my brother feel very welcome.

Potato rosti ,spinach and fried egg washed down with cranberry juice and tonic water- got to be the highlight of my festive experience so far, I don't know how they do it but the food here has a quality that sets it apart. The vegetables taste fresh and I think it helps that you can see the chefs preparing your... More
