Have been going to the Harbourmaster since it re-opened a few years ago - I've been so so proud and pleased that it has (sorry HAD) become one of the must visit eateries in Wales.
I visit there every year when I take my aunts out for a family get together and the Christmas lunch - this year was sadly a disapointment - the luncheon was was less tasty and the portions were smaller- noticed that hardly anyone was eating the Xmas lunch unlike years gone by, they all had the cheap option - soup and bread
Serving the drinks at the bar slipshod - example a Gin and Lemonade for one aunt - they used Brecon Gin, an award winning Welsh gin so a good start, it was poured into a measure and thrown at the glass and quite a bit missed.
I did a search on the place and notice it's for Sale, shame, maybe the owners have taken their eye off the ball or trying to be the VERY best, maybe the local council have pushed the business rates up astronomically and they have cut staff - don't know but I wish they were as good as they were
