We wanted somewhere special for a 60th birthday and this was it. Food and service was spot on. First time at Cellars but we will be back.

We went to the Bear for an impromptu visit for dinner and had a lovely meal. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We were given a warm welcome and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. My husband said the lamb was the best he's eaten in quite some time, which high praise indeed from him. I... More

This was my first visit to Cellars Restaurant. I nearly cancelled the booking after reading comments on TripAdvisor re: poor service, in particular, those concerning long waiting times between courses. However, I am glad I did not cancel as I could not fault the service or the food. On our arrival (i.e. party of four, Saturday evening), we handed the... More

The Sunday Roast dinner was a real treat. We had a good choice of meats, deserts were amazing.The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was full of history and the waiter was very knowledgable about the history which was very interesting. I would definitely go here again we enjoyed every minute.

NO wheelchair access to restaurant, no removable ramps to be used. They offered my wife, who is a wheelchair user, a coffee table to eat a Sunday dinner from and when that was pointed out as unsatisfactory they then came up with a plan to try and sit a party of 5 on a 4 seat table in the farthest...

If you look at my previous reviews I have raved about this restaurant and have always been happy with the service and food. On this occasion, a Sunday lunch for 7, I (nor my fellow dinners) could say the same. In fact our whole table gave the experience a lowly 4/10 and I feel that was being polite. Service was... More

We were visiting our family in Cardiff from Northern Ireland for the Bank Holiday Weekend and visited Cowbridge for the Food and Drink Festival. Thankfully we were there in the morning because even then the crowds were building. At lunchtime were repaired to The Bear for lunch and were greeted by a charming young man, Harry, who made sure at... More
