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.

The food was very good, and so was the service. Only critism is when we looked at the bill we had been charged for two drinks which we never ordered. After we pointed this out it was taken off.

Excellent service and delicious food. The staff made us feel really welcome despite our large group with several young, messy and noisy children. Thank you very much!

Good to see that the menu was the same as the website this time! Great lunch. Whole party of 6 enjoyed their meals, ranging from meat eaters, vegetarians and a gluten free vegetarian!

The food at Rafters is delicious, and there is a wide selection of vegan food, which is good for me because I am dairy free. The service was excellent and the staff are lovely.

The service was very slow despite there being numerous staff and only 1/2 the tables full. We had to ask for bread and we had to ask 3 times for a bottle of wine to be delivered to the table. There were also quite a few items missing from the menu.

Our food was fantastic. However, the service we received was terrible. We had to wait 1 hour and 15 minutes between finishing our first course and receiving main course. In total, we were in the restaurant for 3 hours and 15 minutes, which spoilt our night a bit. I'd understand if the restaurant was busy, but it was relatively quiet. I'd just like to point out that I don't necessarily think it was our server's fault. There just seemed to be a complete lack of urgency across the board.

We come here for my mum's 65th. It was difficult to find, there's not many signs or directions, when leaving I was stopped for going the wrong way, but there was no signs anywhere The restaurant was really lovely but we were sat right next to a large loud table. The food was amazing although my mum had to send her starter back as her chunk of salmon was raw which wasn't specified on the menu. It was a lovely night but these things tainted it a bit and we had chosen to go to the Manor instead of London

They only complaint is our Daughter ordered a bottle of Prosecco to be left on our table as a surprise for our anniversary, which was there but no one told us on the night who it was from. Which was a bit of a let down on what was a excellent night at Rafters
