Really lovely Sunday roast: very tasty, generous portions, nice selection of desserts. Horrific service, waiting long stretches for any interaction with staff! Longest wait of 45 minutes just for the dessert menu. If we hadn't have promised our toddler dessert we most definitely would have...left. No apologies, infact we felt as though each staff member avoided eye contact in fear of being asked for something. Could have easily been corrected with apologies or acknowledgement that we were waiting long stretches but nothing. Important to note there were many empty tables and 4 staff members covering the area.More

Have to say very disappointed. I have spoken to people who have spoken very highly of the place, unimpressed personally. Starters scotch egg. One little egg for £7:50 probably cost about £2 to make. Main course Welsh beef burger again unimpressed bog standard burger. Then...comes the bill £81 don’t think it was worth the money I was charged. Pretentious.More

Absolutely tasty meal here! The service was friendly, the atmosphere relaxing and chilled and the food was out of this world. Tasty, every last bite, and really fair pricing considering the quality of the cooking, the service and the food. If we lived here we’d...be there regularly. The desserts looked super tasty too so will certainly need a return visit to try them.More

Food is out of this world! Wish I could go there every meal of every day as it’s so delicious! Such friendly staff also. Can’t wait for our next meal/takeaway! Outstanding!

Visited this restaurant on the recommendation of some friends. Got there for an early evening sitting at 1730 hrs on 31/7/21. Entered the building and was attended to by the waitress. We did ask if we could sit in the rear restaurant but we told...that we couldn’t and were escorted to a place to sit in the front area opposite the bar / counter. On entering the music was blasting with deafening rock music. We did ask for it to be turned down. The waitress reply was that she will do in a minute ( this was more like 10 mins later ! ). After ordering our food which quickly arrived after much to our disappointment the food was never a 5 star rating. The pulled pork was from a tin, the chips were from a frozen bag. Food was absolutely disgusting. The was more like truck stop cafe. Over priced and overrated. We have standards and this does not come anywhere near them. We certainly will not be visiting here anytime soon 😡😡😡😡😡😡More

Came across this place after visiting the National Trust waterfall 'Henrhyd Falls'. Talk about amazing!! It's a street food vibe on the menu, portions are huge and the food is to die for!! Fresh, home cooked, succulent...3 x patties in the burgers which are loaded...with flavoursome ingredients, ribs are so tender, the food really was divine. Home made sauces and dips, loads to choose from on the menu which was great for both adults and children. We didn't ask, but I'm sure you could take away a doggy bag as I bet you won't finish your dish :) You won't stumble upon this diner, take a look at these guys on Facebook, they love what they do and they do it well, it's a hidden gem!More

Follow the sign from the main road ‘Sarn Helen Cafe’ and you will find this gem of a place. Both the service and food is excellent. We had a meal booked later that evening so did not want too much so shared a couple of...pizzas and a bowl of chips, not expecting to eat all of it. However, it was sooooo good we ate it all and just figured we would order less later! All the food is cooked fresh to order and the quality is evident. Well worth leaving the main road for.More

Turned up with family (all boys!) Saturday morning, expecting standard breakfast.. couldn't have been more wrong! Really well cooked and presented, delicious - and with the bonus of good coffee! Well done, and keep it up, we'll be back..!!!
