Good food. Service and attention to detail lacking. We had to ask repeatedly to have things corrected. A protruding nail on a chair, plates to serve tapas style meals, chipped coffee cup to be replaced. No tip left due to this, though we enjoyed the...More

I have been visiting this wine bar occasionally over its 40 year existence! Never disappoints although there have been some changes in style of food etc. over the years. We visited twice during Eisteddfod week and on both occasions were large parties of 9-10. The...More

We went as a group of 6 and were blown away by the superb menu - we wanted to try everything! Lovely wines and excellent service on a busy night. The passion really shone through. Fantastic evening, we left very happy indeed.

A warm welcome on a not so nice evening to a busy, but not crowded bistro. Service a little slow but food worth waiting for. A very wide selection of wines, but expensive. Would visit again if in the area.

What may well be a fine restaurant (and wine bar), was a tremendous disappointment. On arrival, the service was slow, taking 1/2 hour for orders to be taken. Of six requests for menu items, from "small plates" to dessert, four were no longer available. And...More

Hello Beryl, I don't know if they are open on Mondays but they are certainly open at lunchtimes so I would imagine Monday is included. You would be best to ring them and find out. Number is 01978 860089. Enjoy your meal... More
