I had booked a table so were taken to our table on arrival. Very friendly staff, ordered our drinks then we were given time to choose food from the menu. food was excellent and very well presented. Very busy which is a good sign, but...would recommend booking to avoid disappointment. will visit again soon.More

We just called in for a breakfast as we were passing. It was spot on. Both my wife and I has the normal breakfast. A pleasant bonus was the excellent thick toast. A minor point is that we are pensioners, so the plateful there was...rather a lot. 2 x bacon, sausage egg etc. A choice of a small breakfast with 1 of everything would be appreciated next time we are passing. Though, actually I would more likely choose a simple eggs on toast and add a tomato. Either way, we shall call again. It was rather good.More

Nice food. Friendly staff. Slightly chaotic on arrival despite reserving our table. Long wait for drinks even though it wasn’t very busy there. Has been better on previous visits but still ok.

Eat here, its excellent. Just had breakfast, and it was absolutely cracking. We had cakes as well, homemade and very tasty. It's easy to get too, so go there, and support a great local business.

First visit to this lovely family restaurant lots of parking and excellent for disabled . Nice lunch menu with a few specials and the homemade cake portions looked enormous . Had the jacket potato and it was presented with an excellent salad dressing, Looking at...the customers who had ordered from the Specials board made us decide on a return visit very soonMore

Visited for lunch, it was fairly busy a few spare tables. The food was very disappointing and not up to the standard and quality of previous visits. The burger was very bland and the chips I brought home to give to the dogs as a...treat, they were tasteless. Previous visits we have adored the chips and the meals overall. It wasn’t cheap either. When I went to pay, the assistant asked ‘was everything ok’ and I told her it wasn’t a scratch on previous visits, told her what I was doing a disappointment the chips had been . She said ‘Oh’ ..... that’s it, no apology just gave me the bill to pay. Not a comment received. Very disappointed indeed.More

My wife and I arrived for a 2pm Festive Tea and had left by 2.45pm!! On arrival a waitress told us where our table was "just round the corner there" - we sat down, crackers, a plate and a Xmas serviette on an awaiting plate...each. We were asked as to our preferences of sandwiches and shortly afterwards the tea/coffee arrived - no sugar offered or supplied - we had to ask for it. Waitress returned with 6 small sachets of sugar which she deposited on the bare wooden table. When the food arrived - our sandwiches were lovely but from that, and in my opinion, it went downhill from there - why were two warm stuffing balls and two filo pastry fried brie placed in the middle of the cakes? I am not a lover of cupcakes or cinnamon - two large cup cakes on the plate and small star shaped Welsh cakes with a large amount of cinnamon therein. OK I can accept that you cannot cater for each and every taste. This is not our first tea or festive tea but I cannot say that what we had would entice me to go back there again. Generally a staff member asks if you want a top-up, not here - one did ask whilst she was cleaning a nearby table and holding a rag and spray if everything was OK but the speed she moved at hardly enabled any response! My wife found the food to be OK but was also disappointed on the standard/quality of service - I got the distinct impression that it was a case of 'here's your food, eat up and leave'. We did just that and not to return again. There are other and far better teas in the area and I will be 'voting with my feet and wallet'. Is 45mts to eat a festive tea a record? In most other places we have spent more than double that time and left a generous tip for the staff. General feeling from both of us was that the service was poor, inattentive staff, food - far too sweet and as locals we are unlikely to return to Ty Golchi.More

Had the afternoon tea for 3 people today. Must say it was amazing! Plenty of sandwiches, cakes, scones etc, but what was unexpected was the extra Eton Mess!! Just fabulous. The staff were so friendly and made our visit very enjoyable indeed. Would highly recommend.

I had lunch at Ty Golchi and immediately I arrived I felt safe. Firstly there was a Track and Trace to sign which was reassuring, all staff wore masks and the tables were safely distanced. And that was before I got to the food! That...was, as always superb. It arrived promptly and was delicious. This was my first venture out from Lockdown and I must admit I was a bit anxious. I needn’t have been. They participated in Eat Out Help Out but I would have gladly paid full price. Ardderchog. Werth pob ceiniog!!More
