“Rude staff ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Appalling. Rude staff. Overpriced. No atmosphere. No wonder it's going out if business. Don't think I've ever been to such a dreadful place.

Beautiful bar and restaurant at the Llawnroc hotel.
Well stocked bar and great choice on menu. Food freshly cooked to order and quality ingredients used.
Will definitely be back when in the area again.

“lovely find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We were in the area trying (unsuccessfully) to find a vineyard, so ended up her just about 11:45. We said to the receptionist that we were a bit early but were they open for lunch? She said yes and directed us the bistro and said that we could sit on the terrace if we wished (it was a sunny morning). We expected to have to wait for a few minutes due to the time, but almost immediately the waitress appeared with menus and took a drinks order. We ordered and sat watching the chef set up the barbeque for the meat. Just as the food arrived it began to rain, so the waitress carried the food indoors and set us up there. She apologised for it being a bit 'topsey turvey' (we hadn't noticed) as they were setting up for a wedding the following day. The food was tasty - I had the pork and hubby had the trout. The side orders were too big for one though - if we had known we would have shared. It is a shame to waste good food but I could not finish my potato salad or coleslaw. I thought the service was good, the food tasty and the setting peaceful. We plan to back next year.

“service needs to improve considerably”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

A meal for 8 people that was just okay considering the price of the food.
This newly refurbished hotel disappointed us a great deal since we planned to eat at this restaurant a few times during our holiday. Once was enough. My Dad's steak was "tough as old boots", my starter arrived after everyone else has finished theirs. My children did not get their meals for well over an hour after sitting down at the table.......
The waiting staff were very apologetic and I felt a little sorry for them since they were the ones dealing with the dissatisfied customers (it was not just us on the night we visited) when it is the management / kitchen staff who need to significantly improve their ability to provide good food and service.
This hotel is in a prime position to serve not only the holiday makers but the local community and it could become a real community hub.........I fear however that this is not going to happen unless staff numbers and training are improved and a general sense of the management wanting to please their customers occurs.
