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.

We came here for lunch today to celebrate our anniversary and everything was so delicious! We had a lamb ragout from the specials which was particularly amazing. It's small plates which means you can try lots of different things which we like. The staff were...great, very friendly and helpful, and a very nice setting too - we were very cosy sat just near a lovely wood burning stove on a rainy day. My husband was also impressed with the wine selection. Would highly recommend!More

Nice place, nice enough staff but 50/50 food. Ham hock terrine was very good and good amount of peppercorn(£12 for one slice) Mackerel Doughnuts were disappointing, lacked taste and isn’t passed through a Tammy so had a sharp bone first bite(£12 for two 2 inch...items) Horseradish cream was a bit watery. Waitress passed it on to the chef but didn’t get a reply (bone) Middle weight in a heavy weight contest.More

Dinner was excellent, can't fault anything we had, we order a selection of dishes and both steaks. It was all great, the carrots were outstanding, the seafood, fish and meat all cooked perfectly. The sauces were great for dipping the chips in. Their home made...sourdough was a lovely start. I'm so glad they had space for us, it was some of the best food I've eaten in a long time. It's a wonderful, I love to share food so I get a bit of everything and I couldn't have been happier. ThankyouMore

The food is amazing, how can anyone make carrots taste that good I'll never know, our third visit. The food is beautiful, and such a variety every time we have gone. The flavours of the food are wonderful, and theres a variety of drinks on...offer. I'm looking forward to my next visit, I'm glad we don't live closer as we would be there all the time. Definitely worth the drive.More

The Sticks is just a fabulous Inn with restaurant. Stayed for three nights and we couldn’t have asked for a better place. All the staff are caring, professional and friendly. The Welsh Tapas food is of the highest quality with all dishes, breads, sauces being...home made. The menu offers a very good choice with some exciting dishes to choose from. When reading the menu you really do feel that you want to be able to eat everything. This food is of the highest quality. Annie front of house is a true Turophile - ask her to tell you all about the Black Cheddar! The breakfast streaky bacon is the tastiest I think I have ever eaten! Our bedroom was just what we needed. Airy, clean and en suite, with a very comfortable bed. Thank you all, you have a great restaurant and bar with rooms. We will certainly be back soon! David and DianneMore

What a wonderful find. We went to the Sticks for lunch in February. Immediate impression was that it was a lovely oldy worldly pub that had a really nice atmosphere. The staff could not have been better. Friendly and informative of everything on the menu...and how the restaurant worked. They refer to it as Welsh tapas. The food was amazing as was the wine. Something a bit different but soooo tasty and I would totally recommendMore

Living locally means I visit regularly but if you’re visiting Llansteffan make sure to pop in the Deli, it’s really lovely with local items and fresh food. I haven’t had a meal here just yet but will be soon! The whole atmosphere is great and...the interiors are really lovely with a nice country vibe.More

Called in on the off chance of a table after a stroll on the beach. We had the warmest of welcomes and a great explanation of the "small plates" concept made with local produce. The vibe of this place is relaxed and really friendly, lovely...decor thats quirky in places. The food was absolutely belting, it was tasty, plentiful and so much choice on the menu. Would highly recommend the cockle popcorn (try saying that after a couple of beers!) and the bara brith sticky toffee pudding was to die for! This was our first visit as locals and certainly wont be our last. I cant commend the attentive staff enough, they were friendly, humorous and knowledgeable about what was being served. See you again soon.......More

Carmarthenshire is blessed with many fine eateries but the new set up here may surpass the lot. Beautifully presented, with a fantastic range of tastes and textures 😊👏

What a find. I can’t praise highly enough the super friendly staff and the honestly phenomenal food and chef team here! Watch this spot closely as it will be the worst kept secret in Southwest Wales soon enough and be booked for months to come!...Especially with a no doubt expanding wine bar and deli area when summer rolls around and the garden opens up! More so my partner and I were amazed by the flexibility and ingenuity of the team here when we arrived and surprised them as both vegan by choice and they managed to whip up version of the on menu food and some off menu options no problem in the spot and at no extra cost! Even with this surprise it was incredible! If you haven’t already. Stop by here for a bite and a pint. You won’t regret it!More
