Visited friends and we went here for an evening meal.I found the staff very helpful and there was a good selection of food on the menu.The service was good and the standard of food in my opinion was very good.
I was a bit disapointed with the chese board in respect of the quantity and selection provided however this is only a personel view .
I would return to eat here again and would recommend it.

First of all the view is fantastic...as you wait for your food (not for long though) you can admire a beautiful scenery, especially now in autumn.

All the noise and traffic are quickly forgotten as the atmosphere is very peaceful although not boring at all. It just makes you forget all your troubles and enjoy your time.

As the service is concerned, we were treated like royalty. Everybody's very friendly and they seem to read your mind :)

The food is amazing, the Guinea Fowl we had was superbly prepared with delectable flavors. The meat was so savory and tender.
Servings were medium in size but rich and very satisfying.
We will definitively go back.

I was looking forward to a Sunday lunch here, how disappointed was I , the restaurant used to be good when first reopened however now the food is now quite shocking for what is an expensive place to dine, it's a shame , the location is fantastic but after a tasteless starter and a strange take on a simple roast chicken lunch we gave up and headed home! Never to return I'm afraid, save your money !

First of all I would like to thank everybody for their comments on tripadvisor ( good or bad). Second of all, here at the Clwyd Gate Restaurant , we like to offer our customers a choice on Sunday. Not everybody wants to have a roast dinner and that is why our set Sunday lunch menu offers a choice of two types of roast, a fish dish , a vegetarian and sometimes the occasional dish that you might find on our A la Carte menu. The Chicken dish mentioned was one of those occasional dishes for those people who would like something else apart from a Roast on Sunday , and it was not, in any way ,meant to be a roast chicken dish. As the description on the menu clearly stated, it was a Chicken breast with a broad bean and mediterranean vegetable casserole. As our food is cooked freshly to order , I am sure that a request of a roast chicken dish would have been honoured on the day if the waiting staff would have been informed.
