I had heard and read great things about Sapphires Restaurant but we were really disappointed. I had booked for my partners Birthday treat, we had booked in advance and had looked at the menu online. When we arrived, although the greeting and service was great (couldn't fault that), we were given a very stripped down menu, a choice of three... More

I have to say I normally avoid hotel restaurants but we booked a table here because most of Llanelli's good restaurants seem to have decided that no one wants to eat out on a Sunday evening. I'm so glad we did. We had a warm welcome from an attentive waiter who showed us to a table by the window where... More

Dear Trenean, Thanks for the review. Some hotel restaurants do give others a bad name, it's something we come across a lot, so I'm glad that you gave us a chance. I've also been at the mercy of the 'Sunday Shutdown' and wondered why there weren't more places open but it's worked in our favour this time! I'm pleased to... More

We booked the restaurant for December evening carvery . The quality was second to none and a warm welcome kicked off the evening. Although the hotel is local to us, we have not visited it for years and from friends reports we booked the evening. I was pleased to see the prices were very competitive given it is a 4... More

September was apples and each course included apples in one way or another. Even the table decoration was fresh apples with night lights! Next month is... More

Our starters arrived within ten minutes consisting of wild mushroom terrine and a bowl of "local" asparagus soup, hot but rather bland. The two mains consisted of mixed grill which was large...
