Took the family for lunch and was very happy with the standard of food and service. All lunches presented really well and tasted great. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Love this place but was a tad shocked with price tag on this occasion.

Hello - yes, the restaurant was quite busy the evening we ate there (as residents) and we had pre-booked. There are about 3 places to eat in the evening in the village and The Cambrian seems popular
