Ate here on a midweek evening last month during an overnight stay in Cardigan. Walked in with no booking at 8pm after a long coastal drive and were greeted and seated immediately by the friendly staff.
The Merlot was good; solid, drinkable and went well with the main course (beef), which was well cooked and presented.
Generally speaking, the menu looks excellent but flatters to deceive a bit on its execution. You feel that it could be better considering the price (the bill for 2 mains with bread and a bottle of win cames to £50 plus service).
When we were there, our table near the door wasn't as well lit as the bar area or others tables. To their credit, the staff provided more tea lights when we asked. However, it's a popular venue with families, and even late in the evening there were a number of small children in our vicinity.
It affected the atmosphere a bit, and maybe planning the way tables are laid out (e.g. having a family are) would allow for a better balanced atmosphere.
None the less, if you're in Cardigan, this is a good place to eat and seems to be very popular with locals and tourists alike.
