“Excellent, ignore other comments”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2010

Been going here for 2 years now. It was recommended by a guest house. The staff are friendly , I wouldn't judge them by how they look, like the other vile comments I've read.
The mother and daughter take there time to talk to you. My steak was medium rare and it was exactly that. I'm a beef farmer, and use only the best stock, and have to say the quality of the steak was excellent. They can be pricier on certain steak dishes, but you get what you pay for. There are other more affordable dishes for people not on a greater budget. It's clean, accommodating and welcoming. I use a lot of restaurants and always enjoy eating here. I highly recommend there home made trifle too.

“NO RECOMMENDATION FROM US”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2010

We had a similar bad experience. The steak smelled funny (my husband was a chef at the time, and knew what he was talking about).We tidied up after our small baby and took it in turns to stand out in the freezing cold with him when he was crying. We were told (once we had paid) not to come back when it was busy (there were about 4 people in), and when I got upset, the waitress told us never to come back ever)- charming!!

We are a small friendly restaurant ,I really worked hard to get you everything you wanted .the bad food comment is obviously a lie because you came back every night all week. I had to say something to you before your baba got hurt.. I had to wait to pass with every meal because you let him crawl around the floor. Its a good while ago and now your kids have grown up I hope you have realized it was your actions that were rude and not mine .

“gr8 food and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2010

Visited here on monday 5th april , place was very busy , shown to our seats straight away and given menus.

Ordered small rump steak and the 18oz rump steak ,

food was superb , staff very friendly, reasonably priced

tried to visit again on the tue night , however they were closing early , but did say to come on in, we just said we would let them close as there was no sense in keeping it open for us two.

“WARNING !!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2008

We tried TRUFFLES for the first time this Sunday evening, Bank Holiday weekend, BIG MISTAKE. We arrived at around 9pm ish and was greeted by a lady that looked as though she had come off the pot wash and had taken over from the waitress. We were not shown to a table but told to "sit on the end there" (a table set for 8). The menu`s were then literally thrown at us while she ran from one end of the restaurant to the other with 2 bowls of soup, which by the time they finally reached the customers that they were destined for would have either been cold or empty. We ordered a combo for 2 and 2 Fillet steaks one of which was with a pepper sauce, the starters arrived and was what could only be discribed as lidl`s or some other low cost food outlet`s value range but was tasty enough, while we got stuck into our starters the "waitress" proceeded to have a full blown arguement with another customer that dared to complain and found out later that he was there celebrating his marrage to his partner that day (great start for what should be a happy occasion).We had finished our starters and the plates were promptly whipped away from us but after around 5 minutes or so we heared the chef ask if the "combo had finished" the steaks arrived and for fillet steaks I can only say I have seen bigger beefburgers.Both steaks should have been medium rare but came more to the well done side and the one with the pepper sauce was so full of grisle that it was almost impossible to eat so we shared one steak between the two of us along with the dozen or so chips that was meant for the two of us even the pepper sauce looked like it had seen better days and was in no way a pepper sauce. We asked for the bill and my partner went to the toilet but made a hastie retreat saying that they were total discusting and looked as though they has not been cleaned in months I then went upto the bar area to collect the bill and complained and was basicaly made to feel as though I had no idea of what I was going on about with the steaks until I pointed out that as a qualified Butcher and I did know what I was talking about to which she back tracked to the bill and told me that would be £44.95 for the 2 but she would only charge us £40.00 thanks for nothing but as we by now had had enough of the place just wanted to get out of there. Needless to say our journey back home to South Wales the following day took us twice as long with more toilet stops than the M6 has services, I will leave you to come to your own conclusions as to why this 4hr journey took us over 6 and half hrs and it had nothing to do with the traffic.

i am not familiar with your story at all. In our defense bank holidays can be very busy and we just do our best to serve every body as quickly as possible. we try not to turn anybody away and cook the best that we can , i wish all the people that thanked us that night had had the time to leave a review as oppose to the one we upset...
