Just visited the Nant Ddu Lodge to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary, we decided to skip starters and order the main meal (we both ordered rib-eyed steak with chips and a portion of both the crusty and garlic bread). The service was excellent and extremely quick and the food was delicious - compliments to the chef as the steak was... More

We were staying at the hotel (don't bother, see separate review), however the restaurant is in a parallel universe to the rest of it. Modern decor, great service and knowledgable waiting staff, lovely atmosphere.

It's been some time since I've been here for lunch but was pleasantly surprised with the quality, presentation and service that we received recently. The prawn cocktail starter was fabulous, the chicken in... More

The food is exceptional, the staff attends to your needs with a smile, without being pushy. In other words, I must end my review because now, there... More

Lovely place, we went for a family meal, all meals were fresh, fabulous tasting and plentiful, and the trio of desserts was outstanding. I would definitely recommend this place.

Visited the area for the weekend and our B&B host just 5 minutes away recommended Nant Ddu lodge bistro. We were very pleased with the overall experience. Although it was a busy Saturday night, our host was very friendly and chatted with us about visiting Australia. We had a drink in the bar (a great Aussie shiraz) before being seated.... More

We stayed in a nearby B&B so went to Nant Ddu for dinner. It is a quite old building, but food is delicious. I ordered the slow-roasted lamb dish which was cooked perfect. They have a good selection of wine too. Price is reasonable for the quality of food. Bar is kind of small but we did not have any... More
