“Needs just a little more effort......”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Enjoyed dinner here on Saturday evening starting with scallops on a really delicious risotto and following that with beautifully cooked cod on a bed of new potatoes and veg. I have eaten here before and last time I remember thinking that with just a little more effort they could be really good. The cooking was of good standard, then and last evening, but the food was sadly all served on cold plates so the main course veg were cold when I got them. There was a limited selection of puddings, which could easily have been more impressive as there were goodies in the chiller cabinet in the coffee shop that could have been offered too. The wine list isn't too exciting but a bottle of Argentinian White was very drinkable and reasonably priced. It must be a real struggle to keep a good restaurant going in a small mid Wales town but keep going please, some of us do appreciate good food but please get a plate warmer!

“Small menu and interested staff”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Interested in you having a good experience, that is!
Good to see a restrained manu and although some were clearly frozen/bought-in the food was nicely presented and the local meat was excellent (= to or better than Waitrose, for instance)

“Poor service & food”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

had dinner there on Sunday 25th May, looking in through the window it looked ok, they said there was a 50 min wait for food although it was not that busy, the waitress seemed not to have a clue what she was doing. after 15 mins we got a menu & only took the order after another 15 mins! then after another hour the meal came, the steak ordered Medium rare came well done, the salad was so limp & dry it could have been out since yesterday, they offered some sauces but the meal was half gone by the time she returned with any, they gave no napkins at all, the bangers & mash was a disgrace, 3 measly thin sausages on top of some mash!! over all it was disgraceful!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The Sunday which you visited was one of the busiest days of the year, a New Bike Event was being held in Rhayader which brought an extra 800 people to the Town, we did advise there was a long wait for food and that we were very busy, so apologies for any delays.
