My wife and I have visited Bistro Hafren at all times of day, morning, lunchtime or evening and have always been delighted with our visit. Lunchtime menus are superb, there is always a good choice, and the daily special is always my favourite. In the evening we are sure of the very best. The special evenings are always worth a... More

Unexpectedly good simple hot Sunday lunch served in a very traditional way with friendly staff in very simple surroundings but you can see care is taken.

Not really a bistro, more of a greasy spoon in a bistro setting. No complaints though. Food was fine and tasty and not overpriced. Would go again

Enquired if there was a table for three. Told "full". End of 'conversation'. As there was lots of unused tables not sure what was full...but we went to the Angel and loved it. Won't try again.

Uninspired, everything too much bother. We went for tea and cake but even that was beyond the waiter. `he came back three times to check the order. Tea was lukewarm when it arrived 10 minutes later. Cake took another 5 minutes to arrive.

This guy doesn't deserve any business. We went in to look at menu over a bank holiday and based on expensive prices decided to go elsewhere. We were rudely told "you won't find anywhere else to eat you know". Guess what we did and this guy serves to fail and go bust.
