I tend to book Clarkes for special family meals as the food is always delicious and the service is always spot on - attentive but not intrusive. We've eaten in the main restauramt as well as booking out a room for a private event and am always very pleased with the experience. I'm also usually pleantly surprised when the bill... More

We dined here recently and it was one of the most memorable meals we have ever eaten. Good wine list and nice selection of house wines - excellent pinot noir at about £19 bottle 1 soup (homemade and brilliant) and a goats cheese to start. Venison for me - out of this world and slow roasted belly pork for my... More

Over the past few years we have celebrated the coming of the New Year at various functions however to celebrate 2016 we decided as a group of eight to try the Glen-yr Afon House Hotel. From the welcome we received entering the hotel, the friendly and efficient staff serving each course prepared and presented to such a very high standard... More

Excellent service with an excellent menu, including vegetarian options. All food timely served and at the correct temperatures. All vegetables cooked perfectly. A reasonably good range of wines to choose from. The portions served seemed to be rather large which may suit some. A very minor criticism would be that the fish dishes were "standard" and it would have been... More

This was my first ( and last ) visit to this restaurant. Following some top reviews on this site and being a finalist in in the 2015 Welsh Food Awards 2015 my partner and I had great hopes for this culinary experience. Sadly it was not to be. We had booked into the hotel for a weekend including breakfast and... More

What a wonderful restaurant - I had booked an evening meal as a surprise for my husband's birthday. We were shown through to the bar first of all to browse the menu, our order taken, and we were called through to the restaurant as our starters were about ready to be brought out. Our first surprise was a small taster... More

Lovely ambience and caring staff as well as coping with a wedding. Food was good but stuffed sardines was a little dry, my wife had venison which was beautifully cooked. Sweets a little unadventurous.

Everything was perfect from the time we arrived right up to departure just before midnight. The whole evening was so relaxed and well organised and those who attended have not stopped talking about it since. The food was - as I expected - of a very high quality and beautifully presented. The service was first class and the whole evening... More
