The atmosphere, decor, surroundings and especially the service, are faultless. The quality of the ingredients really superb but the food, although beautifully presented was slightly bland.Had the chef forgotten to season the dishes? To start I had the fritto misto, no seasoning in the salmon, lemon sole, hake, and king prawns themselves and the tomato sauce served with them didn't... More

Chosen based on Trip Advisor reviews. From the welcome through the door to the waitress/waiter service & the attention from the owner checking things were ok.........they were all exemplary. Starters & desserts were excellent both in presentation, quantity & taste. Main courses were fine with plenty of fresh vegetables, extra Yorkshire for the Lamb & extra gravy. However both the...

My partner and I booked a table here solely on its Trip Advisor rating: number 1 in Cowbridge. I can see why. The restaurant itself is quite old fashioned, and on entry I was a little concerned that it wouldn't be the sort of place for us thirty-somethings. However, the staff are very welcoming and their attentiveness made us forget... More

Excellent meal, traditional yet very relaxed atmosphere and very good service. Felt prices fairly reflected the quality of wine and food so overall good value. Would look forward to a return visit.
