Good place for a special occasion

I had my birthday lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Located on the Main Prom in Aberystwyth, It has a lovely Welsh theme in the decor and in the menu with locally sourced welsh delicacies. The staff are friendly and helpful. They are a child and baby friendly restaurant also.

Wanted to treat my son and his girl friend for really nice meal, it's fairly small but cosy (as others say booking essential) with slightly strange lighting. I was concerned with the limited choice as my both son and his girlfriend don't eat meat -although they love fish- no need to worry as the starter, fish dish & dessert were... More

Recommend by our guest house this restaurant did not disappoint. A modern but not austere interior with seating for around 20 covers. Not a large menu (always a good sign) but a wide enough choice to satisfy most tastes. The staff were happy, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. the slow cooked beef was divine. On the Saturday we visited... More

In over 20 visits l have never had a bad meal, always an excellent atmosphere with attentive staff. Food is always cooked to perfection and well presented, the Scotch egg starter is to die for and a must on any visit.

Fab communication with staff prior to arrival, when booking, super helpful and informative. Food was delicious but place is small and lacked atmosphere for a Christmas meal, although to be fair it was early on in Dec and may liven up towards Christmas.

While the restaurant is in the garden or basement level dont be fooled. The intimate atmosphere coupled with numerous tasty dishes making full use of local ingredients and seasonal items made this a treat. I also stayed over and had an equally delicious breakfast based on Rarebit but with a twist.

This is the place I met my partner, so it has a special affection for us! We've been twice for dinner and for lunch too. The food was great quality and very nicely presented. On a sunny day it's nice for lunch outside, with a view of the seafront and pier.

I would highly recommend this restaurant. I had the salmon, which was cooked to perfection My son and partner went for the pork loin, as they said it was so tasty it melted in their mouth. The service was excellent with very friendly staff We will definitely be back. Thank you for a lovely evening
