We had a family gathering here for a Sunday Lunch. It was our first time of dining here but we were very pleased with the Service and meals. Would readily go back again.

Overall OK stay. Some minor issues - room was facing main road so noisy, tap dial fell off, sink smelt like sewer, kettle no to near plug socket. Water spluttered when run. Jacuzzi not that warm. No light bite snack available until 3. What I enjoyed - the food was lovely but pricey, staff were lovely, nice changing facilities, lovely... More

As soon as we entered we were welcomed with such warm hospitality, you don't get that in many places. Our table was ready for us and we ordered our drinks and served promptly, the same again in relation to our food. All the staff were friendly and happy and could not do enough for us. Most of all the food... More

I stayed overnight and found the restaurant better than the accommodation. The staff were friendly and it seemed that locals came to enjoy the food too, so a nice atmosphere. Good beer on tap too. I had garlic mushrooms on brioche and it was simple and tasty with the mushrooms cooked properly (not watery and stewed). The pork loin in... More

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

Overpriced, deep fried, poor quality food - we were really disappointed as were expecting better things from the menu.
