Consistantly very good

We attended Clarkes again in March meeting up with some friends in Usk. It was a fairly quit Tuesday night but we were made to feel very welcome and pampered by Caroline and Sultan - thank you both. The four of us only had main courses and a bottle of wine this time but they were all cooked to... read more

having booked in advance & informed the staff that two of our party were vegetarian, I was surprised to find only cheese sandwiches for them & nothing else & that the cheese sandwiches had been piled up with the ham sandwiches. The cake selection was amazing, so many cakes & warm scones , we'd never be able to eat all... More

The Glan-yr-afon has been consistently well above average for food and events for many years. There is a lovely, warm atmosphere, the service and food are both excellent and I cannot recommend it highly enough (even though it will make it even more difficult to get in, as it needs to be booked well in advance). It is often used... More

The highest quality ingredients, cooked with flair and attention make meals here a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Courteous and friendly service from staff who know their foods and wines help to perfect the evening. An intelligent, varied winelist will suit all tasts and pockets. Worth a detour - as one guide puts it!

My wife and I were lucky enough to be invited to Clarkes at the Glenyravon in Usk to celebrate a very good friends "significant" birthday. I have to say it was exceptional, pre-arranged drinks on arrival, friendly, chatty staff - special mention to the Maitre'd - Sultan - from the Maldives, a real gentleman and truly professional. The food and... More

Dear Ruth25 Many thanks for taking the time to write a review about your afternoon tea experience on the 19th September. I remain mystified; you were part of a group of 14 here in a private room. For clarification, our afternoon tea consists of - A selection of savoury sandwiches, Pitta breads filled with salami, Parma ham, chorizo, sun dried... More

Excellent food - really good produce used and service excellent. I choose the Vegetarian option for my evening meal and it was delicous and full of flavour. Breakfast - had the traditional full English and again excellent.

I returned here for a meal for my birthday with my partner and it didn't disappoint. The food was perfect along with the service. This restaurant isn't promoted enough in the local area (I'm an Usk resident) as it is more of a wedding or event venue, but it should be as it's excellent. The dining room had a few... More

I am very sorry to have to post a review that is not excellent for this place as I got married here 15 years ago and I have always found it to be excellent. Firstly the staff are amazing but generally the place is looking a little tired and old fashioned. You can't fault the portion sizes, for the £25... More
