Lovely atmosphere, excellent food and service. Nicely presented food. Interesting choices on the menu. Gourmet food rather that a traditional Sunday Lunch. Not suitable for those who want a quick bite. Prices are set for two or three courses. Booking is advisable.

We have been to this restaurant many times for dinner, and so decided to try it at lunchtime. What a delight. The choice is a single 3 course menu for about £15 with no choice or a lunch menu which is compact with several choices of starters, mains and desserts. Unlike the dinner menu which is a set price whether... More

Having visited the Botanical Gardens, we had spotted a brown sign outside the entrance indicating a route to food. After a couple of miles we came across this restaurant which was just closing at 2pm. But the staff were welcoming and managed to squeeze us in. The only thing that they couldn't provide on the menu was the pork belly.... More

Another fantastic meal at this lovely restaurant. If you're looking for pub food, look elsewhere. If you're looking for freshly cooked, well presented, very tasty food from a delightful, knowledgeable team then this is the place. Even trying things which I didn't recognise was a joy and a revelation. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

This is, without doubt, my very favorite restaurant in Wales. I like the relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff, but ABSOLUTELY LOVE the FOOD which is ALWAYS SUPERB. It is well worth the journey from Swansea. A basket of homemade bread and bottles of chilled welcome you to your table, which never have clothes, and tea towels are used as knapkins.... More

We were looking for a nice place to go as a treat. Found this on the Internet, a bit random, but a great find. Only 5 minutes off the A48, so good access, signposted and easy to find. Plenty of off road parking, rough but fine. Lovely welcome when we arrived and we were seated straight away, and our wine... More
