Visited with friends for an evening meal. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, the staff were welcoming, The food was excellent, the beef was delicious, the best produce was served. We had three courses and every course was prepared to the highest standard. The staff really looked after you. Highly recommend this restaurant. Can't wait for the next visit!!

Then I went for the duck breast special again very good. My wife didn't have a starter but we shared somE home made bread. Her main meal was... More

Just come home after having an amazing meal here tonight. There were 7 of us eating and every single meal was delicious the consensus of opinion was that the Merlyn Ice Cream and mixed berry sorbet were to die for!!! The staff were friendly and attentive. Will definitely be returning again. Diolch.

Four of us enjoyed a delicious meal, accompanied by a couple of bottles of wine. The standard of service was excellent without being intrusive. We have visited this establishment on a number of occasions, and is always consistent

Met up with friends we hadn't seen for a while here. Don't be put off by the shop front exterior inside is fresh and minimalist, some candles and lower lighting could change the ambience. The menu is a fixed price for two or three courses and really good value. There are some menu choices for which there is a supplementary... More

We visited as a family to celebrate my son's 40th birthday . This was our first visit, but not our last. The food was good, and staff attentive. We all had a wonderful time. Thankyou

Enjoyed our second visit to Valans, which we would highly recommend. Spotlessly clean restaurant with excellent quality food and impeccable service. The main courses and sides in particular are the highlight of the Sunday lunch menu. At some stage I'd be interested to know if the restaurant can go up a notch in terms of a more ambitious menu but... More

The 2nd time we have been to this restaurant having seen it on trip adviser with a good rating. The first time (a friday evening) was an excellent meal (with a slight mishap over a glass of wine and a sweater, but soon cleared up and the bottle of wine knocked off the bill!) The food is delicious, service friendly... More
