We ended up in here after watching the rugby. Having looked at the menu that had been limited to 3 starters,steaks and burgers we decided to give it a go. We were seated quickly and given the menu. When the waitress came to take our order 3 of us ordered the swordfish steak and the other a double burger which I think it was called a Macca burger. A few minutes passed and the waitress came back to the table saying they had no swordfish but had cod. None of us fancied cod and were baffled that the menu that had obviously been reduced already, how they couldn't have the only fish Main on the menu. I changed to the double burger, the others ordered a ribeye and the steak platter. My burger came out one with a really well done burger on and the other burger Medium which was like the burgers had been cooked at different times with plastic cheese on. The ribeye came out like leather (well done) and we realised the waitress hadn't asked how it was to be be cooked. We had also ordered mash which didn't come instead chips so had to ask about getting mash and by the time it came out the steak was nearly gone. Same went with the steak platter like leather and no flavour (awful) that was £20 which is shocking and was also recommended it was for 2 (it was not big enough for 2) There is a harvester opposite I recommend you go there as you will get better service, food and at half the price.

We found Truffles by chance for lunch. The lunch menu looked suitable. We were greeted straight away and seated ourselves by the window. There were quite a few other diners. We ordered two baguettes. They arrived full and tasty. The chips on the side were delicious. Great value for money with pleasant service. Only downside is the place looks a little tired and could do with an update.

In traveling through the UK we found many of the pubs had the same food prepared exactly the same way. This was completely different at Truffles where the meals are all prepared onsite and are authentic Welsh cuisine. We arranged our schedules after the first meal so that we could eat there again. I had their steak and ale pie and my wife had the welsh rarebit. These were what we had been looking for, a place that did there own food on premises. Two days later we went there for breakfast where my wife had their porridge and I had a typical breakfast of eggs sausages etc. The service was friendly and informative.
