Although food tasted lovely, the veg was poor, mainly bowls of peas, meat fatty. Asked for a Yorkshire pudding for the 4year old and was refused as had lamb not beef. When ordering dessert asked for cream to be replaced with ice cream and got charged extra. 6 soft drinks cost over 14.00 and using cheap brand products. 2.50 charge... More

Wont be visiting again. Did not like having to stand by the door to read the menu. The food was good . Never have I been anywhere where I have had to pay for my food before I had got it, then to be charged£2.50 to pay by debit card.

If you want freshly cooked, quality home cooked gastro style food this is the place. Quality and quantity in equally proportioned measure. This place isn't a chain and I presume family run so retains a lot of charm. It is not pretentious at all with a few locals at the bar and very friendly staff. Some reviews have mentioned a... More

Well, what can I say...... Food was phenomenal, I had the steak & ale pie which was amazing followed by the sticky toffee pud & ice cream. Second time visiting and both experiences were first class. (By the way the portions are generous.) If you are in the area make sure you have cash on board your person and pop... More

Wonderful food with huge portion sizes. I would advise booking as it seemed very popular even though we were there late afternoon. There is a large variety of dishes to choose from.

I am partial to a bit of fish, and my daughter took me out to try the fish at the ffrwd. Fresh, tasty and full of flavour. I recommend you try the pan fried halibut with king prawns and garlic butter.

A great place to go for food and a chilled out of town atmosphere. We are local but always book given it's usually full of reserved tables, which is a good sign. The fish pie is delicious and rammed full of fresh fish; my husband had fish and chips - the fish was enormous and the chunky chips yummy! Sunday... More

We had an excellent meal at the Ffrwd on Friday evening but unfortunately there was no atmosphere as there was only another party in. If they lowered their prices by £2.00 per dish, provided a written menu, and stop the ridiculous card charge it would improve the footfall. Unfortunately I will not be recommending this restaurant as you have to... More

I've lived in the area for nearly 3 years and visit the Ffrwd every couple of months. I've never had a bad meal here and everyone who I've brought here for food has said how impressed there were. Even better now the owners have modernized the interior. The food is what I'd call amazing home cooking rather than fancy restaurant... More
