I recently had an excellent dining experience at Sospan. The new chef served delicious food. The cheese platter was the best that I have ever had. The evening was taken to a new level by music performed live by Nathan Launchbury Jones. Can't wait to repeat the experience.

Having eaten here many times our latest dining experience was not too good. They have a new chef, portion sizes have really shrunk, the menu selection was really limited, cheap ingredients turned into over priced dishes which although tasted quite nice, portion sizes were really inadequate, portions too small even for a person with a very small appetite. Chicken was... More

Just had lunch at Sosban and what a difference a new chef makes. It was wonderful!! Andrew Sheridan has been at The Sosban for 3 weeks and his menu is unusual, inspiring and delicious. We had the Potato Risotto and Chicken with black garlic, followed by beetroot, chocolate raspberries and olive, and white chocolate mousse with cucumber. Very different and... More

I've been here twice with my family, most recently taking my Mam and Mamgu here for Mother's Day. On both occasions I've been very pleased with the standard of service from staff and the quality of food. Would definitely return. Very pleased that a place of this quality exists in this part of the world.

I wanted to love my visit to Sosban, although the new decisions taken by management have left a bitter taste in my mouth. I have visited this restaurant for years, since soon after it opened. However I was unimpressed with the recent change in menu and strategy choice by the owners. That said, the food we ordered was delicious and... More

Six of us dined on Thursday night an if this is anything to go by Andrew Sheridan, the new head chef will quickly earn himself a name as one of the best chefs in Wales. The service was excellent from start to finish when we were greeted by Rhys the Manager. We had different starters ranging from the curried cauliflower,... More

Beautiful venue and lovely staff. Service started quite promptly and then slowed down toward the end of the evening. We were rather rushed through the starter and main course and then left for some considerable time waiting for our desserts. The food is beautiful but the portion sizes are absolutely tiny. I have to say that although we enjoyed our... More
