Lovely venue - gets very busy - book early. Good menu - excellent variety. Have eaten here a few times now. Tiramisu is the best have tasted in a long time. Have had steak and fish - no complaints. Would definately recommend.

Having visited this restaurant a number of times, we chose it immediately when we had a rare child-free night. It was a bank holiday so we were pleased to get a table even though it wasn’t overly busy. We have always had excellent meals here...More

Visited today for an eighteenth birthday party with children ranging from 5 upwards. What a disappointment food was overpriced and to be honest very poor. Where do pubs get away with asking £6 for a dessert. Do yourselves a favour stay in and save yourselves...More

We took our Mums for lunch, it was very busy, but food and service were great. Would have preferred a more varied menu, but I appreciate limitations are necessary on such a busy day. Will definitely be back soon.

This little place in the middle of nowhere (sorry Swansea and Neath people!). Service impeccable. Wine lovely. Atmosphere really warm and cosy. And it’s super reasonable. It’s on a par with Ramsay’s gastro pub in Regents Park. I hope I return soon
