We arrived after a great day walking the Brecon Beacons. Great staff with a good sense of humour. 2 of the 3 of us enjoyed the carvery, a little dry for my taste but you won't go hungry! Seems like they saw Covid coming -...assistance buttons and table screening certainly kept us safe 😂More

Attended the Bessemer last night with my elderly mother - what a disappointment. Our table was booked for 6pm at 7.15 pm as we had finished our desserts (after ordering starters, mains and desserts) when the manager asked if we would move into the bar...to finish our drinks because they needed the table. I understand there are now time limits on bookings but last night's experience but us feel we were on a conveyor belt. Prior to the pandemic we had always received 1st class service but if last night's service is their new norm I will not be rushing back.More

Its awful here since they reopened from corona. The roast is a mix of salt and butter and is practically inedible and the staff seem very fed up and overheated in their masks. Just a horrible environment for such a steep price.

Totally delicious. Excellent choice of veg, 3 meats, proper roast potatoes, tasty stuffing, yorkshires and real gravy. Served into portable trays that kept the food hot. Easy to order and pay over the phone, and even though there was a queue to pick it up,...we were served fairly quickly. There was enough food on one tray to serve 2 people. Best Sunday roast I’ve had in a long time.More

Lovely and clean, very tasty dinner, I had beef which was tender not chewy at all. Turkey was tender not at all dry. Vegatables cooked just the way I like them. Cauliflower cheese delicious. Sunday is very very busy. I'm disabled stood for 20 mins...in que, but had to go sit down and my daughter brought my dinner for me. Staff lovely and helpful. Will definitely go back but not on a Sunday.More

Carvery was good but expensive at £9.75 have had just as good Carvery with more veg choice a lot cheaper. £2.85 for a glass of coke and £4.75 for a dessert which was very similar to a local supermarket value dessert . Sorry but not...good value for money.More
