We always go to Arboreal for every celebration meal and we love it...Wonderful food, fantastic service in a relaxed atmosphere..My husband (who is a complete burger snob) swears their burgers are the best he's ever had. Also it's lovely for a drink or coffee and cake..We will be back very soon 😊

I had a amazing dinner in Aboreal my wife and I have tried most if not all the places in cowbridge this is by FAR the best. Lovely and welcoming staff brilliant food and amazing cocktails! Food seems a little expensive when you first look but when you try it it's definitely worth it!!

I absolutely love the decor of the Aboreal! It is bright, rustic and very cosy. Whoever designed it: Well done for the attention to the details! Unfortuntelly the food and the service does not match the great inside look. The service was friendly but very slow and not very efficient. The place was not busy at all and we were... More

14 of us came to this restaurant for a Christmas get together, the food was served hot and on time and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. We were noisy and enthusiastic and our festive cheer was tolerated very well. I would definately return

Visited one lunchtime a few weeks back. The decor was charming, channeling the popular shabby chic/up cycling movement. The restaurant was almost full - it's only a small place but the staff looked rushed off their feet. This may be perhaps because each thing we ordered (drinks, meal etc) were served up individually rather than brought together. For example, my... More

4 members of staff behind the counter, 6 customers. I tried to get the attention of a member of staff a couple of times, and was ignored. Apparently it was the chef ' and not his place to serve tables' , I had been to this place before and found that the service was a little surely. However the food... More

My wife and I called in for some lunch whilst Christmas shopping, although full a table for two was no problem, a great menu, fresh and up to date. I love this place, we have never been disappointed, lunch, early tea, evening meal it always delivers. I must say, what I originally ordered was sold out but I was offered... More
