“What a find!”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Firstly I would like to apologise for the late review!
We were a large group staying just outside of llandovery, staying in a bunkhouse. We asked the owner of the bunkhouse for any nice restaurants to go to for food and one of the suggestions was The Castle Hotel. We phoned a taxi and told him where we were going and he phoned the hotel to let them know we were on our way which was very nice of him! We turned up and recieved a very warm welcome and were shown to a table. We were a large group (hen do in fact!) so they got more chairs for us! Huw the manager (I assume he was!) offered us free wine so we chose rose and red wine. We all ordered food and it came out in good time and it was amazing! I had steak and it was cooked perfectly and everyone enjoyed their food! Huw (the star of the show!) and the team made our night! They could not of been more helpful and nothing was too much. We had previously been for food the weekend before and had the worst service I have ever encountered! He said that he 'bent over backwards for us' but since going to this restaurant I can tell you now, he needs to go to this place to learn the meaning of the phrase! We are from Swansea and we are planning to go back! I have reccommended this place to everyone! Once again, Thank you to Huw and the team for wonderful night!

“Good food”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Really enjoyable meal with tasty food. Staff very friendly and very reasonably priced. Lacked a little bit of ambience as we were the only people in that part of the restaurant but a lovely fire by our table.

“Great food”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Lots of local food on the menu, great tasting confit lamb and rump steak, local cheeses (not sure of the names) all added up to a super meal. Helpful staff who let us try both wine and beer before making a decision on what to order was a major bonus.

“A tale of 2 servers....”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

We visited early on Saturday evening and were seated promptly in the bar area. The place was empty and felt a little lifeless.
The steak and duck were well presented and tasty and the service we received from the (new manager??) was superb. However the service we received from the northern lady was appalling!
She loudly announced that she was "off to buy fags" then returned to take our coffee desserts order stinking of smoke!
When she did bring the coffee over the milk was burnt, the cups were empty and there were no biscuits as advertised?? We asked her and she snarled at us that she would check with the chef... (For a biscuit??!!) She them preceded to slam 2 biscuits down on our table and storm off.
What a shame!
We shan't be returning and judging by the emptiness of the place neither are others.
