Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The chips very rock hard and there was hardly any chicken or curry, inside the chicken curry pie. Very disappointing as the place has an excellent reputation

This place is the gem of the Valleys. The food is wonderful, the portion sizes are large and the service is quick and friendly. Above all else, they have retained that wonderful art -deco interior which helps create lovely ambience.

There were 39 of us and the service was fabulous, William and the lovely waitresses...were very accommodating and could not do enough for us, a big thank you to you all for a lovely afternoon. Would highly recommend, we couldn’t fault it.More

My wife and I travelled from Llanelli to Pontypridd yesterday 24/11/23 and we found this gem. As you enter the atmosphere was superb, the selection of cakes, pastries and savoury was outstanding. The staff were very helpful. We stayed for lunch and were seen to...by the waitress Barbara. She was courteous, friendly, efficient and professional. Thank you Barbara. When we visit again we will definitely call with you. Highly recommended.More

like stepping back to 1966.. the atmosphere and ambience are the *teamrooms of the past*, like you would see on downton abbey or upstairs & downstairs,,, there is a upstairs section, the staff are very friendly, a tea for two and various deals are great...,...also the prices are very reasonable... the princes is very famous for bakery, i can see why its so popular with queues forming, probably the best welsh cakes in the town,, & the rhondda valley, tourists, vistors and daytrippers come to the restaurant just to see , the decor, furnishings,,,,thats why its normally very busy...More

First visit and really impressed. Ambience feels like you're stepping back to an era of good food, fantastic service and real value for money. Had coke floats, delicious trifle, cannoli and fresh cream scone. Felt looked after and can't wait to come again - next...time, afternoon tea!More

Really gutted after our visit today. Haven't been in years but loved going as a child. Took my partner and really hyped up the cornbeef pie, was always a favourite with chips,peas, and gravy. We arrived and found a seat. A table turned about about...5 minutes after us. For the waitress to walk past up several times and take no notice of us. We might as well of not been sat there. She then took the other tables order still ignoring us. After taken there order she brought the drinks back and still ignored us and went to a table who were already eating to ask if they would like more drinks, by this point my partner was ready to leave, I then went and looked for a waitress to be told wil be woth you shortly. 10 mins later a waitress finally serves us. We waited longer for our drinks to come than it took for the food, when the food came the cornbeef pie was as good as I remembered(thankfully) chips weren't cooked and just tasted really bland. The cutlery was dirty we asked for serviettes which never came, didn't see a waitress for the remainder of our time there, so ate our food sharing cutlery. Really gutted as was overall a really poor experience and will not be going again.More

Had lunch and we were very disappointed. Cheap burgers, chicken no imagination of something akin to a hunters chicken, roast beef served with froxzen carrots and dried out roast potatoe. Waitress very friendly and helpful, but the food is awful.

Really impressed with this lovely venue and an absolutely beautiful afternoon tea. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food just kept coming with a great savoury and sweet selection and everything was just so fresh . We all left...with boxes to take home and the whole experience was faultless. We are coming back to sample the rest of the menu very soon . Thank you everyone at The Princes .More

Visited for a celebratory retirement afternoon tea. Great selection of sandwiches, savouries and cakes. The two of us filled up on tasty food and were able to take plenty home for those who weren’t able to join us. Would definitely recommend for an indulgent treat.
