We visited around 7.30 pm on Sunday 19th March 2017. The restaurant was not what we expected having visited similar establishments abroad, this was very down market in comparison. The whole place WAS immaculately clean the toilets among the cleanest we have seen anywhere. The place had reminded me of a transport café without the dirty spoon. Not a somewhere... More

We stopped on our way home last night. We received a cheery welcome and were immediately given a table and drinks. The buffet was varied and tasty, but lukewarm.

Arrived when the place was busy bites seated within 5 mins. Fast and friendly drink order. Place was clean. Good choice for courses .... everything clearly labelled. Go up as often as you want. Plates etc cleared quickly. Good dessert selection. Was a bit noisy but it was busy. Definitely will return.

Have been here time and again and always get great service and enjoy the food. The duck pancakes are particularly nice and the children always love the puddings! Great value for a lovely meal.

Took my best friend from England on her last night in Wales ( 8th April ). Thoroughly enjoyed our first experience here. Offered A La Carte and Buffet. Opted for the buffet as a vast variety on display. Great food, lovely setting, excellent service and at £14.99 each, good value for money. Highly recommended, worth a visit.
