“Good food at a reasonable cost”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and taste of the food we purchased over 2 nights. Menu choice was very good and salad bar available which was a super starter and one could return and refill their plate if they so desired. Desserts were delicious, too much for one person so a couple of spoons were supplied for us to share. Staff were very polite and helpful, we ate on a Sunday and Monday and the restaurant was extremely busy on both evenings which is always a good sign. If you are staying at either the Travel Lodge (now a Metro Western) or the Premier Inn at Pontypool this is a very handy eating establishment.

“Much improved”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

I visited this restaurant with family recently, for the first time in two years. (This followed an incident at the salad bar when I tried in vain to find a clean bowl for salad amonsgt the stack of alledgedly clean receptacles.) The place seems to have had an update and refurb.

It's a Harvester, that will tell you everything. It's clean, it can get crowded, and the staff wander around with faces like wet weekends. (except for the fabulous John, who was attentive, chatty and friendly.)

The food was acceptable. There's no atmosphere, so it doesn't encourage people to linger over their meals.

Children seem to like it - but if you're someone who doesn't like kids running around when you're eating don't come here. There seemed to be a few people who brought their kids here, only to let them run around disturbing other customers, whilst the parents stuffed their faces.

“Too Busy To Care”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We booked out table but still had to wait 30mins, and then had a table that wasn't sufficient for a wheelchair and had to wait another 10mins. Our food was hot and enjoyed that but the staff weren't nice or helpful.
