About Rafters

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.

Some issues with the service (such as being brought our main course before we had been given the starters) however this was rectified easily. Drinks were overpriced. Atmosphere was OK - it was quite busy. We did ask for a window seat specifically before we booked BUT this did not happen. I was quite disappointed by this. The reason it did not happen is because the tables weren’t cleared in time - I should note that the tables blocking the window view were not cleared for a good 45 minutes to an hour later after we were seated elsewhere. Poor from a restaurant at a top hotel.

The surrounding are beautiful, but the temperature in the venue was very cold. The food is really unadventurous and somewhat cheap.

Had an exceptional time dining in Rafters last Saturday evening. Service was faultless and the food was truly delicious. I tried venison for the first time and - wow - it was amazing. Will definitely be back SOON!

We had a Christmas voucher which was £80. Paying £80 for 2 people for 3 courses is not a good deal at all. The meal without the voucher would have been about £35 each anyway, so we have probably lost money, and on top of that we had to pay for water. Many of the things on the menu required an additional charge that was overly expensive. I found that my fish was not well cut and I couldn’t eat all of it as it had pink gristle in it. Probably would not be back.

Lovely setting with beautiful views. Food was tasty although portions were a tad on the small side. This was fine for me though as I’m on a diet!!

Seems a bit steep to be charging £3.95 for a bowl of broccoli or a bowl of beans or a bowl of carrots.

I ordered from the separate vegan menu and the food was absolutely delicious. There was a choice of 3 different starters, 3 different mains and 2 desserts, and considering it was only a lunch I thought the choice options were very good

Having to pay a surcharge for not very good cuts of meat and sides isn't value for money Two of the courses were cold. Staff were helpful and service was great.

Amazing food. Service a little slow but not no so slow that we felt the need to complain. Would still recommend.
