We recently visited this popular restaurant following recommendation from one of our neighbours. Boy are we glad that we took his advice!
As we had a big family birthday just around the corner I decided to book the six of us into 'The Gwaelod' for a special meal. I had no trouble dealing with the extremely polite staff member who took my booking and spent the next week really looking forward to our evening out. On the day in question my son's fiance decided that she would like to join us and the restaurant had no problem turning our booking for six into a seven.
Service was outstanding and even our vegetable-phobic teen went home satisfied once he had requested extra chips TWICE. Nothing that we required was too much trouble, waiting staff really were wonderful and apart from a trip to the bar to sample some of the excellent real ale on offer (some of which are brewed on site!!) before finally settling on a few pints of 'Shine On' I hardly left my seat.
The food - wow THE FOOD - I could have chosen a number of items from the menu and I felt decidedly spoiled for choice. I finally settled on the moules to start which were wonderful, my wife had seabass from the specials board (which I was equally enamoured with and was happy to help her eat). For main course I went for the rib-eye which was melt in the mouth delicious and when you consider how reasonably priced it was compared to other similar establishments it was easily one of the nicest I have ever had the pleasure of eating. Around the table we had fish and chips, lasagne, saltmarsh lamb (beautiful by the way and I will be having this next time) and a couple of steak pies and we all finished every morsel on our plates. Gwaelod y Garth Inn if you are reading this my compliments to the chef!!
As inviting as the dessert fridge looked only the youngsters had any room for dessert but their roulade and sticky toffee puddings were wolfed down while the rest of us relaxed with a coffee.
I will without doubt be going back to this delightful little gem of a restaurant again and again. I can feel the Shine On calling me back already.............
