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.

We arrived at 9 pm as we were on our way home having been let down badly by Brothers Pontyclun. We were made to feel very welcome, even though it was late, and were served a delicious meal. The starters were amazing - my husband...especially loved the mussels. The steak and the chicken mains were also great ! The service at this restaurant is first class. Both the young waitress and waiter were courteous and the food / drinks arrived promptly. We have eaten here many times as we are local to the village and have always had a lovely time. Thank you Fullbrooks for rescuing my husband’s birthday celebration last night !More

A party of 6, food was lovely, hot and served with a smile. Gammon and eggs were the favourite, can highly recommend. We'd finished eating by 9.30 and we're the only ones in the restaurant, we stayed chatting and laughing until gone 11, with no...pressure to leave which was lovely. We've been to many places where they shut shop at 10 after the meal, so this was perfect for us. The staff were pleasant, patient and efficient. Will definitely returnMore

We spent a great Sunday afternoon at Fullbrook's Bistro for my wife's Birthday celebrations. The service was amazing from the start when booking, through to the experience when there. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. The staff were very polite and...helpful. This is our 4th visit, and will not be our last.More

Delicious food and great options for vegan diners. Highly recommend the cauliflower wings, grilled salmon and salted caramel and chocolate cake but everything else was good too!

Both my wife and I knew from the moment we sat down that we were going to have a very pleasant evening as the ambiance was perfect.The menu was good with uncomplicated food and some great old favourites on it.We both thoroughly enjoyed the starters...and main coarse and they went out of their way to serve us a bespoke dessert, it was all beautifully cooked and presented and delicious. The service was flawless and given that it was a busy period it was all well coordinated. Thank you all at Fullbrooks and rest assured we will definitely recommend you to friends and family.More

Although this place has been opened for many years now and in our doorstep I had never actually eaten here previously. We popped in for light dinner. Some of us oldies find on occasions we just want light bites to graze on rather than heavy...meal and Simon and his staff excelled. Food was delicious, generous portions, piping hot.

From the start til the end everything was perfect! We sat by the window, we ordered a whitebite starter to share then a roast beef and a chicken and both came with fresh and tasty vegetables; we finished with a superb sticky toffee pudding with...ice cream. All were delicious, the service was lovely and kind. I'll be back definitely, thank youMore

Service was excellent. It's a nice, clean, cute place. The food was ok but nothing amazing. Thought the price overall was too high for the quality of food. I wouldn't go back there but it's a nice place for a small town. I would give...it 3.5 stars, good, not average and not very good.More

Its been a very long time since I had a meal at this lovely little bistro; but as its local to my Mum, I thought we would try to book. I made my booking in February as I knew it would be popular. It was...an important birthday for my Brother the day before; and I asked if I could bring a cake and have a fuss, they said no problem and even offered to put up banners. As it happened, my Brother didn't want a fuss so we didn't bother, but they were more than willing to do this if we had. We were seated on time and the service and the food were excellent. All the staff were friendly and helpful. What made it extra special for me was I asked if they would be able to do a 'take out' dinner for my Dad. They asked me to bring a plate and they would do that, no problem. They even provided a tub of gravy! This was, for me, what customer service is all about. Well done Fulbrooks. We had a lovely couple of hours eating and drinking with my Mum on Mothers day.More

What a fabulous night!.. we were 32 people (friends and family) celebrating my husband"s 60th birthday and took over the whole restaurant. Simon went above and beyond in making everything perfect. Food was lovely as were the staff. We all had a brilliant time and...many who had not been before said they would go back. My favourite place to go in Pontyclun Thanks again to Simon and the team.More

A busy lunchtime but still relaxed in this small family run bistro. Food was great - freshly cooked, tasty and generous portions. Service was good; attentive without being “in your face”. Will definitely return.
