    Previously been here which was great but I had the fish and chips and found the chips were soggy and the fish although nice had an enormous amount of batter. Disappointed with the food which I found very expensive as well. I wouldn’t recommend at this time.

    Found a long strand of hair in the pie. Brocolli stems were soggy & cold. Crème brûlée was like cold runny custard. Very disappointing. Ve

    The food is nothing short of magnificent. The tastiest, yummiest meals in the whole of the Cardiff area. Usually, the staff are all very warm, friendly and helpful. We, for some reason had a waitress today that was a bit below par in not being warm or friendly. Service takes a long time. It was an hour between the appetiser and the main meal. But most of the staff are fabulous, and the food is far beyond excellent. It was also a tad too noisy, but it isn't always like that. It is the luck of when you are there, I guess.

    The service along with the meal was superb. I would highly recommend . The only slight downside to our visit was that the dogs were allowed in around our table. I would like to think that a certain area be reserved for people attending with animals as not everyone is an animal lover.

    Booked through the website but my booking wasn’t there when I arrived - apparently they’re having problems with Fork booking system since before Christmas… yet it’s still available to use this booking system through their website. Waitress was stressed, a table and chairs had to be found for us and was put in a little corner. Starters were awful - soggy breadcrumbs around the Camembert, and really bad tasting. Mains were nice. Apologetic for everything but we won’t go back.

    We attended for my sons birthday as a party of 5. We were seated quickly although we arrived a little early. The waitress was more than helpful and the food was lovely, all 5 of us thoroughly enjoyed our mains and deserts. Priced very reasonably and worth every penny. We will be back again.

    My husband and I booked a table for 18.00hrs but arrived early and, pleasingly, were shown to our table immediately. A decent menu offered plenty of choice. We had onion rings and the garlic cheese mushrooms tonstart. The latter were delicious but the onion rings were a little pale for our liking. For mains, I opted for the puy lentil lasagne and hubby went for the belly pork. Mine was served with salad and was perfectly acceptable. My husband's meal was very tasty but the mashed potato was only tepid at the outer edge. The waitress happily change the potato - all good. We rounded the meal off with some liquer coffees. All good. Will return, soon.

    Hi it may not be the right place to mention but I asked the Manager about “Yums” She had no idea what I was talking about. I also stated that I book through the fork but cannot access any deals. As I stated before I live near Cardiff . The capital of Wales. Yet there is nowhere within 50 miles where I can access the deals which you keep advertising .What is the point in being able to book through you but cannot access the deals. Regards Ron Murphy

  • Jolene A.1 review

    Lovley place but wasn't overly impressed with the food or service. The starter (soup) was warm on top but cold at the bottom. The wrong food order was brought to our table so 1 person had food while the other 2 had to wait. The side orders had to be asked for and when they came they were very grease and on the soggy side. I was almost finished my food before the 2 other plates were brought. By this time we were rather dissatisfied so didn't bother to have dessert. I've not been here for a while and if I'm honest I won't be in a rush to go back.

    We have been wanting to visit for months and I am glad we did. The food was lovely. Chicken and Mushroom pie was huge, the hand made fish cakes were cooked to perfection. Starters were ok nothing to write home about. Sticky toffee pudding could have been a little bigger. All in all lovely meal and evening. Surprised it was not busier on a Friday at 1900. Will be going again for Sunday Lunch.

    Lovely afternoon, with friends, nicely presented, tasty food.. Staff very friendly and helpful. Menu list limited in relation to diet restrictions so staff kindly checked out alternative options with the chef. This was very much appreciated.
