Can’t fault the service and food, staff were great! Atmosphere was understandably a bit flat though due to the ongoing COVID-19 precautions.

The service and food was really good the only thing with the dessert was the final touches with the ice cream two scoops and no wafer or sauce which would have given it 5 stars, the devil is in the detail. As for atmosphere on the hottest day in August your air con was not working properly ,the staff were excellent on the night and were attentive to our needs. Will look forward to visiting again.

With the current situation and on your first night of opening back up, I was very pleased on how everything was set up and how everyone was space apart. The food was excellent and service fantastic. Will definitely be coming back

Best Sunday lunch I have eaten out for a long time. Just did 2 courses but wish I had tried the starters after the main and desert. Had the roast beef lunch everything was spot on. Desert was a platter of mini portions the macaroon was excellent along with everything else, sorbet, cheese cake and ginger pudding. Staff attentive, but it was surprisingly quiet. Locals need to use this gem. Will be back again......

The vegan afternoon tea and child’s vegan afternoon tea were both delicious. Really nice atmosphere, attentive staff, will recommend! Such nice vegan cakes that think they are missing a trick not expanding their vegan lunch and dinner menu options.

Delicious roast with plenty of veg and Huge portions. Puddings were ok but we would rather have had a choice of a traditional dessert after a roast. Excellent customer service

Really disappointed. Booked this for 6 of us. Looked at the menu before hand for the 2 course and a free dessert. The menu states you can have either antipasti starter, prawn cocktail or soup of the day. When we arrived the menu states just anti pasti platter or soup of the day. When we questioned about the prawn cocktail one man said yes another came over and said no that's never on the menu and the chef had no prawns even though this was the cardiff menu online. When the anti pasti platter arrived there were no stuffed peppers on there so when questioned if we could have them they turned around and said we haven't got any. This was not stated before ordering this just presumed we wouldn't notice. We then went up to get our food. 3 out of 6 people got theres and sat down and then myself and another 2 had our meat and had to wait for 5 of the veg to. Come out whilst already putting the other veg on so half of it was then cold. I then said I'm waiting for the carrots after already waiting 5 minutes for the other veg they turn around and say they will be another 5 minutes! Ridiculous when half of your food is already cold! She then brought carrots to the table which as well as the parsnips were rock hard. Would definitely not recommend to anyone. So disappointed and complete waste of money!!

We visited your restaurant last night prior to the theatre. There were 6 of us and honestly couldn’t fault the service,food not forgetting the relaxing and very attractive surroundings. The £20 3 course evening meal was brilliant as was the choices from the main menu. Thank you x

A very relaxed and friendly atmosphere, service was excellent and the food was of a very high standard. Three of us had the monmouth pudding as our desserts, it was only ok, the bread was dense and tasteless, however we will definitely return, the steaks were fabulous.

We booked the afternoon tea when we saw it advertised during our recent stay at the Cardiff Future Inn. It was for a treat for some visitors coming to see us for the day. We use the Bar & Restaurant when staying there so knew the quality of the service & food was excellent. We were pleased to find out that it was the same although we were only there for the afternoon tea and not staying at the hotel. When booking we gave some dietary needs, these were kept to. The young lady looking after us was very helpful, explained how the tea would be brought to us. The food was excellent quality, plentiful and the set price very good value for money.
