You have the option of variable meats, veg and all the trimmings in a great surround. For the sweet toothed there's a variety of desserts. All at a reasonable price.

First time been back for a few years. Wish we hadn't. Not a patch on what it used to be. Small portion on the meat. Peas, carrots, fried onions(why?), cauliflower cheese but no greens. Bland mash which used to be really lovely buttery taste. Roast potatoes all of which you can help yourself, so can have a plate piled high.... More

We stopped here after walking up Pen Y fan on a Sunday. We hadn't booked but were seated within 5 minutes. The que for the carvery was huge but it was peak time. Food was lovely and hot and plenty of it. The staff were very prompt with drinks and the bill. The place itself is a very strange set,... More

Negatives... the room gets... More

Six of us visited for dinner and we all chose the carvery. The positives: clean and tidy restaurant, our table was partitioned and good for private conversation, friendly service, fresh veg, good roast potatoes and excellent cauliflower cheese. The not - so - goods: not impressed with quality of turkey and trifles. Icecream out of a plastic tub placed in... More

Due to the wonderful food myself my partner and her parents are regular visitors to the Bessemer for Sunday lunch. The food quality is first class and always hot with plenty of choice. If your looking for a great carvery in the South Wales area this is the place to visit.
