We were on our holidays around the UK in the summer and stopped here after visiting Snodownia. We booked last minute and found a table for 2. Lovely friendly staff, great food and it was great for me (vegan) as well as my girlfriend who is not. Bruschetta was delicious as was my pesto pasta main. Over all very impressed,... More

Ducked in for a late breakfast before visiting the castle and enjoyed a delicious full welsh breakfast. The restaurant was quiet when we entered and, despite choosing to sit in a booth in front of the coffee counter, the staff did not linger or hover, but were attentive to our needs as well as our privacy. Service was quick, meals... More

We booked for a family meal and the food was out of this world. We sat down quite early so it was nice and quite. The staff were great and friendly. The owner came to say hello and the chef also came to introduce him self. Very professional and a fantastic cook. Will visit again and recommend.

Went here mid December for our work's Christmas lunch and the food and service was second to none. The only down side was that no draught beers were available, but that doesn't take away from the quality of the food we received. I had the Welsh Beef Carpaccio starter, followed by Turkey Ballotine and Caramac Torte to finish. The only... More
