A nice enough place but the food was very expensive and stingy on the portion sizes. Otherwise the staff were nice, room was nice, and parking was good enough. Just need to sort out the tight food portions.

Visited restaurant on a monday, 13th February as a treat and to avoid the Valentines day pricing and queues. Arrive 10mins early for our 7pm table and had the pick of a nearly empty restaurant. Found a table and drinks were served within 5 mins. Order was taken about 7.15 and starters served about 15 mins later. Ordered prawn cocktail,... More

We always visit Nant Ddu when we are in the area. The food never disappoints. The bar area has the best atmosphere, we do not go to the restaurant! Food is delicious and very good value.

First the plus points. Probably one of the nicest pub meals we’ve had for a while. My partner who is a vegetarian had an onion tartlet and I had one of the nicest pork loins I’ve had for ages. The staff were very friendly and the pub area was generally comfortable. Personally I thought the menu was good with enough... More

The food was lovely and although the kitchen was being renovated it did not effect the quality. The ingredients were of a good quality, the fillet steak melted in your mouth and the jus was well flavoured. My only disappointment was the chips and onion rings were not home made as this would of made it perfect. There was four... More

Had lunch and enjoyed the food, service and welcome. Certainly excellent value for money with first class ingredients in a homely atmosphere. Strong recommendation for the quality of food, service and price.

We had a lovely family dinner on the 3rd of January as we stayed a night and the nearest restaurant/pub was at least 20 minutes drive away. The decision was spot on as our food was lovely and very hot 😊. My lamb was perfectly cooked and my wife's pork likewise but she didn't finish it all as the portion... More

The food was lovely, the staff were friendly, but we found it a bit cramped and found myself shoulder to shoulder with the guy having food behind me.
