Called in hopping we could get a table, only space was in the bar on stools. We were hungry so agreed. That was the best decision we had made that day and wow were we glad, We only ordered mains as we needed food after...having a few pints next door. Two of us had beef one had all four meats the other had lamb. I asked for two Yorkshire puddings and no vegetables on my plate. They did exactly that I had six potatoes no veg and 4 slabs of the softest tastiest beef I have ever eaten . We all loved our meals and weee so full once finished. Thanks to the team for making the meal amazing and having such a good laugh with us. Look forward to our returnMore

The food was amazing! We had the buffalo battered cauliflower bites and creamy garlic mushrooms to start, then we had the beef brisket and seabass for main. The portions were very generous and all the dishes tasted amazing. We went tonight (Monday) at 6.30pm. The...service was great, the guys were very attentive and professional. Will definitely be back soon.More

Highly recommend this venue. They hosted our 10 year business anniversary and couldn't do enough for us. We had live music so accommodated a dance floor area and still had enough space to comfortably hold nearly 100 guests. We had a hot curry buffet with...all the trimmings which guests praised. The bar staff were attentive and overall had a wonderful experience. Thankyou Wendy & Team xxMore

Lovely evening. Delicious food and great, friendly, prompt service. Rosheen was an exceptional member of the staff. The shin of beef was absolutely marvellous. And great pricing too.

What a cosy, friendly place. The staff were so lovely and welcoming. We had never been before but were shown to a table and really looked after. The place was full with both families and adult groups. The menu selection had plenty of choice and...the food was delicious. We highly recommend and will definitely return.More

We went to the Goldcroft for lunch with a couple of friends, expecting a nice quiet atmosphere to have a meal and a chat. How our hopes were soon shattered, a group of young girls were sat at a corner table supposedly enjoying a Bottomless...brunch. The way they were behaving was in our view deplorable, shouting out and screaming, it was so bad we could not hear ourselves think let alone have a decent conversation. We complained to the staff about it but were ignored until finally they offered us a table in a quieter corner of the pub. We were disgusted by their behaviour, and it really spoiled our afternoon with our friends who had travelled a long way to meet up with us, so we really felt let down. Also for the money we paid, the food in our opinion left a lot to be desired as well. From here on in, next time we go out for a meal it will be to a much higher class of restaurant who gives due consideration to the comfort and well being of their customers. The Goldcroft will not be seeing us again for dust!!More

Such a beautiful evening spent with friends. The food was delicious, service was amazing, we weren’t rushed and it was so clean and tidy there. A really lovely atmosphere and worth every single penny.

Good and bad. 8 of us came for an evening out. Staff were friendly and polite and the menu looked good. We ordered various meals but unfortunately two out of the eight were inedible. The dishes that included rice were very acidic and were unable...to be consumed. It was a disappointment. However they were gracious enough to remove these from the bill. Our only other gripe was the smoke that poured in from the outside smoking area when someone returned from outside. The double doors for this area opened straight into the dining area to where people were eating. Unfortunately some smokers left the doors open on their return which was unpleasant for diners. As previously stated, most of our meals were good and were tasty and the chips were deliciousMore

Party of 8. The two meals for £15.00 lunch much menu is great value for money. I had the brisket and it was delicious. Most of the party really enjoyed their meal with one saying it was the best Caesar Salad she had had. Downside...is parking close by is at a premium in a very busy part of Caerleon. It was busy in the pub but by no means full. With only two staff serving we waited over an hour for our food to arrive. Friendly staff. Could do with more real ales!More

Had lunch here a few times recently. Parking can be a problem but always find somewhere nearby. Clean and comfortable with friendly and efficient staff. Good food and drinks. Good value, in fact the ' special` Luncheon menu is incredibly value. Some local well known...rivals, see previous reviews, are no longer the place to be, with excessive pricing for similar standards of fare. It's the place to be now in Caerleon, especially for lunch. Only one ' complaint'... despite being advised by me on several occasions, and by others to my knowledge, the management persist in flying the Union Flag in the beer garden upside down! As they are not ' signalling distress' the only other known reason for this is to insult the King! Seems odd to persist with this knowingly? Better not to fly it at all. Aside from this, an excellent little pub all round.More

I went with a group of friends who were deaf, plus some were blind, including myself. We had a terrible server from a lady behind the bar, who couldn't be bothered to help us with the food menu. So she justed walked away and decided...to fob us off with a gentleman bar assistant, who I might add was very pleasant and helpful. We all felt very uncomfortable because of her attitude towards us, which was uncalled for when trying to place an order. Some of us had to wait for a very long time before receiving the food. Plus one friend who asked for gluten free gravy because she has gluten tolerance and ended up given the wrong thing, plus she had to leave with half her food in a box, because the service was so slow.. Just so you know I feel there should be disability awareness to be more understanding with consideration of those who have some difficulties more than others.. Apart from that the food was nice.More

Unfortunately, not a great experience. Went to celebrate a family birthday for an early dinner and had to wait nearly an hour for the food, even though the restaurant was not busy! The salmon salad was really dissapointing, with just lettuce & croutons. No other...salad accessories, such as cucumber or tomatoes, so quite an extension main. Other food, just average 😒More
