There is an excellent choice of locally sourced food. The restaurant is modern and convivial. The staff are knowledgeable and attentive. The option of conversing in Welsh with the staff is an added bonus, though not essential.

Went for a meal while in Aberystwyth with work and was lucky enough to get a table as a walk in as I had not booked. The food was great, local fresh ingredients cooked well. The wine was good and was reasonably priced for the quality of the meal, drinks and experience. Was nice to speak Welsh with the staff.... More

The welcome here is second to none! The owners, Mr & Mrs Roberts and every member of their staff were friendly, cheerful, efficient and ... well, just 'nice'! The food is exceptionally good and although the basement restaurant has only about 30 covers, it is in great demand and booking is essential. Good value too! The excellent 3-course Christmas Menu...

Incredible meal, the quality and presentation was first class and the Scotch egg starter is a triumph. Matched suitably with a cooked to perfection medium sirloin. Bravo.

We had a great meal and the service was of an excellent standard as was the food. We would highly recommend this place and would... More

This very small hotel-owned restaurant is a jewel among Aberystwyth food offer. Very kindly serviced, you would love any selection. Better reserve in advance, specially in summer season.

I ate here when I stayed for one night for (separate review provided) for a business trip. Limited evening menu but delicious meal (carrot and orange soup and lamb for main course). Full Welsh breakfast was also lovely. Good service by the waitresses. Could do with a little more atmosphere. Had a chimney so would have been nice to have... More

I was recently taken here for my birthday by my partner and it was one of the best meals I've had in Aberystwyth. We had a salmon pate and grilled halloumi to start and then followed by steaks. All of these were well presented and tasted delicious, especially the chips with the steak. The wine was also really nice and... More
