If you order a Prawn and Chorizo Linguine what two ingredients would definitely have to be accompanying the linguine?
Well unfortunately both my wife and friend's were missing the chorizo so we duly informed the waitress who then went to the kitchen to enquire,. She returned with the answer that "sorry we are out of chorizo". No offer of a to change the meals. Did the chef think that we would not notice that one of the constituent parts was missing?
At the end of the meal we were duly asked to pay the full amount for the meals with no apologies which we of course declined to do.
Why did they feel it necessary to try and trick us rather than explaining that that dish was unavailable?
It is irksome to have to right something negative about a beautiful looking restaurant that could be fantastic.

Lovely and interesting meal for New Years Eve, very attentive service - given that the place was packed - lots of streamers, free glass of champagne and a good time was had by all. If you are in the area - it's just a short way from Machynlleth - it's well worth a visit to this well run pub/restaurant, And the art on the walls is worth a look as well!

Nice meal but a little pricey for what you get. Needs more variety on menu and something out of the ordinary.
A pleasant meal was had so well done.
