This luxuriously relaxed restaurant makes a striking statement with its soaring cedar wood beams which lend the restaurant both its name and its unique atmosphere.
Set within the prestigious Twenty Ten Clubhouse, diners will enjoy the stunning views over The Twenty Ten course and beautiful Usk Valley. The Rafters menu is simple and elegant, with a touch of Welsh flavour.
Rafters’ talented chefs have created a menu with many local ingredients to create succulent steak and grills.
Dining at Rafters is a good excuse to dress up, although there are no stuffy rules. You’ll feel equally at home in smart casual attire or something a little more formal (please no shorts, vests, flip flops, torn jeans, trainers (white or coloured), football or rugby shirts). Formal footwear is required.
The four of us enjoyed friendly and attentive service throughout our leisurely lunch at Rafters Restaurant (20.02.2019. The food was delicious. The lunch-time prices were very reasonable. The venue is superb as are the views of the Usk Valley
Rafters is an amazing restaurant which compliments the Celtic Manor. Everything from start to finish was perfect. Staff were extremely attentive, food was to die for and the atmosphere was very tranquil. Would highly recommend to anyone who is staying at the Celtic Manor.
Truly delicious chicken and ham hock terrine starter Main of Salmon tasty, but nothing stood out as particually innovative about it. Dessert amazing, panna cotta with so many delicate extra components to this dish Why is the wine more expensive in Rafters than your Newbridge on Usk restuarant when it has one less AA rosette? My husbands mustard mash had too much mustard in it and we overheard another dinner say the same. Service excellent, portion size good. Overall very pleasant experience indeed.
Very friendly and efficient service with really good food.
A quality experience
The service was amazing and fast! Food was gorgeous but not enough options! But I do understand it is al a cart, overall very pleased.
A delicious fine dining experience that was enjoyed along with our young children. Staff were attentive and the food was scrumptious. Can’t wait for the next visit!
Exceptional food in a really relaxing atmosphere, will be returning.
We had the Sunday lunch a our first visit to Rafters. The decor is dated and very tired looking, aside from the wonderful views we could have been in a higher end harvester. The food was nice enough, the beef and the roast potatoes were delicious but the gravy tasted like instant and the broccoli had no taste at all - it was over cooked. The bara brith and cheese platter is a weird combination and doesn’t make much sense. Overall it was decent enough but the service was slow, coupled with the tiredness of the room and lack of quality with the food I would not dine there again. For a five star hotel you do expect a certain standard of food and service and from our experience there wasn’t really anything that set you apart from a bog standard pub lunch; but I’ve had better ones of those for less than the £20 you charged.
Fantastic place and great service. Food was beautifully presented and tasted great.
Love Celtic Manor but not this restaurant!! Vegetarian food here is terrible. This is the second time we have dined here and my wife's vegetarian option was just an awful dish of bland pasta! Last time it was a burnt quiche. Come on guys, in this day and age, vegetarian food should be exciting and tasty. Such a shame as everything else is OK for the price. Unfortunately will not be dining here again.
Lovely location and a great non-overbearing service. The pork main dish had mass produced bland puffed cracking on the plate which in no way showed off the proported talent of the Chefs and the panacotta did not have the desired consistency, the overuse of gelatine resulted in what I can only describe as the consistency of a squash ball. The food tasted nice but was certainly wasn’t a demonstration of a restaurant who takes pride in its food. The restaurant clearly relies on its location to overwhelm from the cuisine.
The lady that served us I believe it was Jemma on Saturday 16/2/19 was great. Polite, cooked our steak to perfection and helped us have a lovely even.
Excellent service from Rhys with wonderful food and drink. Thank you very much.
Overall amazing dining once again. Thank you!
Lovely views, great food and atmosphere was very calming and relaxing.
Service was very good didn’t have to wait for our table but the restaurant was half empty. The food was ok but not as good as we were expecting. Just an average lunch.
Excellent experience the food was fantastic and the staff were very good
I would advise turning the heating on. This was my first visit to Rafters and I sadly spent the entire lunch shivering. Unfortunately being seated elsewhere didn't seem as though it would make any difference.
Food delicious and beautifully presented. Lunch time menu good value for money. Service superb.
Brilliant Bakst and staff we fabulous
Overall the meal was ok. However, my mum was served a the cauliflower soup which was supposed to be gluten free (according to menu) but when it came, it had gluten. She had told he waitress when ordering that she had celiacs disease so couldn’t eat gluten. Had my mum not double checked, she would have been ill and unlikely in a fit state to leave the hotel the following day as we had booked an overnight stay. Pannacotta dessert was awful, a bit tasteless and it’s jelly like consistency was odd.
Excellent food and service , will be going back in the future.
The food was outstanding but the small lady that served us which I can’t remember her name was soo polite and very pleasant which made our meal even better, she was a credit to the restaurant
So impressed with quality of the food considering the price we paid. The fish cakes and chowder were amazing as was the panacotta. One of the best meals out I've had for a long time. The two young waiters are to be commended for their attentiveness and help with the cake and candles we had brought to celebrate my friend's 70th birthday. They were both very professional and Joel took a lovely photograph of us all. The only improvement I would suggest is better signage to the Rafters restaurant as we ended up having to move our car 3 times until we found the correct place! I have already recommended your restaurant to several friends. Thankyou for a wonderful experience. The view was amazing as it was a beautiful sunny day when we visited you.
