This was on the night the government instructed restaurants to close at 22.00 so only a few tables being used but food, service and value for money was excellent.

Service a little slow for a quiet Monday night, had to get up several times to ask for kids menus and for someone to come and clear our plates. Otherwise, food was excellent and great atmosphere. Staff were friendly and very helpful when serving. Would deffinetly recommend and hopefully visit again soon.

Lovely meal and drinks, only downfall we had was the staff, we could only see one waitress going around everyone’s tables as the others were stood talking for a long period of time and we did have to ask if they could come and take our desserts order. Can’t remember the waitresses name that did take care of us when she could but she did a wonderful job!

The food was amazing; I did however swap some potatoes for some extra veg, which was quite band; the carrots having an uncooked taste, despite being soft. We had two glasses of Red, the house and the very next one on the menu. The house was better, however I wan't terribly impressed with the wine; next time i'll make it further into the menu. We had planned to get a white with the main (fish) after we had the red with our red meat starters, however I believe that you have slightly missed the mark when choosing how 'efficient' the service is; this was an anniversary and I would have appreciated longer in-between courses to talk and let food settle. We were not able to finish our small glasses of red until after our mains. The service did feel a little rushed. The atmosphere was nice but the noise floor did get loud enough during desert to inhibit conversation. When it comes to value for money, everyone is different; for me somewhere should demonstrate that it is the only rational choice in its price range. So that it becomes the default place for particular occasions. I think that trusting that a good restaurants lowest cost wines will be any good was my error (even though I can pick up a good bottle for £5), however the bland side vegetables are on you. And maybe I'll think more about my implicit encouragement of waiting staff to rush me in the future, but you've got to think about that too; suffice to say I did not leave a tip because I believe my experience roughly equated to the price i paid.

We had a wonderful dinner. Because of twelve month’s medical treatment I have been unable to dine out. I am beginning to recover and this occasion was so enjoyable. I loved my choice of food, the staff were very helpful , happy ,and efficient and what a delightful view.

Went on a Sunday and didn't know that the menu was limited to a Sunday menu as I didn't see this on the website, initially went due to various vegan options, however, on the Sunday menu there was only one vegan main to chose from. This was really lovely but not very filling, I left still feeling hungry afterwards.

A fabulous evening, time spent with brother & sister in law is precious due to work patterns, so an evening at Tafarn y Bae was just what we wanted. Great service on a busy evening from charming attentive staff. The food, as always was wonderful. Such a lovely place to be, and on our doorstep. Diolch o galon, Thank you and see you again soon!

If you want a consistently excellent meal with perfect, friendly service, this is the place to go. It is only a short journey from the main road and you will not be disappointed. Definitely book your table if possible though as they are unsurprisingly super popular. 10/10 all round.
