“Best Home Cooking Around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Well after visiting this restaurant a handful of times I just keep going back. The food is out of this world and so nicely presented on every dish. Extremely tasty and can tell the chef really takes pride in his work, which is always a pleasure to see.there is an early bird menu where u can get 3 dishes for £9.95 beteeen 5-6:30.. it might possibly be open 7 days a week too.. but will uave to double check. I fully advise people to ring to book a table as it does on times get a little busy but you are always welcomed there and the service is great.
Highly recommended for great homecooked food with fab service... its a MUST! !

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

We visited after using a Groupon valued at 63.00 we paid 27.00 inc wine which is excellent for a 2 course meal with wine. Would not have paid 63 as the food was average as inc tin mushrooms with steak and dry Profiteroles as if they had been left out all day. It's a small local pub so I don't think the reviews of terrible are fair but at the same time excellent and ranking 5th in Cwmbran is inaccurate - value for money on this occasion YES but would not have paid the menu prices

“Incredible, As Always!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Visited the Mount Pleasant again today for Sunday lunch and it didn't disappoint! The food is amazing, healthy portions and great value for money!
Started with Pâté and caramelised onion & cranberry chutney with a warm baguette and leafy salad. The presentation was great and it tasted gorgeous. I had Lamb for main and the meat was tender, really melted in your mouth! Gorgeous roasties and a Yorkshire pud, also served with seasonal veg, cauliflower cheese and a gravy boat. I chose the chocolate fudge cake and ice cream for dessert. 3 excellent courses for £13!! You can't fault it for value and quality!

If your having Sunday lunch elsewhere you really are missing out! Get yourself into the Mount Pleasant, highly recommended!

“Fab food, lovely staff, great atmosphere!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Walked a long way to discover restaurant was closed for the bank holiday weekend although signs outside indicated otherwise. Planned visit with friends for tomorrow but still won't be open for food! Very disappointing as you've lost a lot of custom!

Hello.

Just to clarify here, we are usually open for food during bank holidays, as with most businesses, there may be reasons out of our control as to why we are regrettably having to keep it closed, not any other reason and we are aware that we have lost custom.

I am confused by your review, you have given a 'terrible' rating with low scores for value service atmosphere etc but your review heading states otherwise?
We apologize that this may cause inconvenience to you and others but as mentioned, in this case it is due to reasons beyond our control.

Many Thanks
Anneliese

“Best food in Cwmbran.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Not only does the food keep you coming back, so does the friendly and exceptional staff! The menu is amazing value and there is enough variety to suit every taste! The last time I went I had the sirloin steak which was seasoned to perfection. Never a bad word to say and will always choose the Mount before anywhere else! Definitely the best food in Cwmbran!
