We had a wonderful three course meal at lunchtime today. We had goat cheese balls and garlic mushrooms to start. Both dishes were delicious. Next we had lamb shank and gammon, both off the specials board and both wonderful. We had cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Three courses and no complaints, and I'm quite a fussy eater. Very... More

Spent many birthday celebrations at this restaurant & have always enjoyed every meal. The quality & variety of food is a delight to see, the only down side is that you cannot book a table you just have to arrive & wait to be seated

Called here recently on the way home from Cardiff. I'd checked with the restaurant so was aware that they were open for food on a Sunday evening. Three of us had the supreme of chicken stuffed with stilton, wrapped in bacon on tagliatelli, with cream & white wine sauce which was fantastic. If you order this, you are informed that... More

Went here for lunch, it was beautiful. Can't complain! Prices are reasonable for the location. Can't complain. Although sat in the bad area didn't really have much of an atmosphere! Photos are main meal (had potatoes with it in a side dish which is included inn meal price) and mushrooms for starter! 😊

We were staying at the Nant Ddu Lodge and, after hearing positive things about the restaurant, we decided to eat at the venue. The reviews did not do the food enough justice. The food was absolutely incredible. The mushroom bhaji starter was probably the best starter I have ever had. And my main course (Slow roasted Welsh lamb on sweet... More

Called here for lunch on a Friday. It is a little cramped with tables in two separate rooms. Food is ordered at the bar. We both had the pork loin dish which was very tasty. Prices are maybe a little expensive but I would definitely visit again.

Called in on the off chance to see if there were tables free for lunch and we were in luck. There was plenty of choice to be had on the bar menu and the quality of the food was excellent. Well worth the visit.
