Main course: £15

Utterly superb! Tables well spaced out, service and food was faultless. Only negative was the ergonomically challenging cutlery which is apparently being addressed.

    This must be one of the best restaurants in the area. We had dinner here on a mid week evening and it was quite quiet, with only a few other tables taken. We were offered only the set menu to choose from - I am not sure why, perhaps becasue it was mid week. But there was a nice selection of differrent dishes and we would have been happy with any of them. The food was really well made with great ingredients, beautifully presented on the plates and tasted marvellous.

    Service was very attentive and I was surprised at the good value - a 3 course set menu dinner under £30 pp.

    So I would come back again, probably at a weekend, and I would recommend it to a friend.

    Excellent food, great meal. Fish and lamb dishes were superb! Final course would have been better as a Cheese course with a glass of port in our opinion as two sweet courses felt too much. No wine given with final course which was surprising. These are our only gripes. Service was excellent and we loved all the other courses which were presented beautifully. Not much atmosphere in the restaurant on a Saturday night BUT that is not what we came for - we were a group who enjoy good food and that is what we got. In flight wine was a nice touch. Will come again for sure.

    Food good, all else needs lots of work. Warm wine (white), poor champagne, willing, pleasant but untrained staff.

    Our visit to theEmlyn Resturant was an excellent experience.well spaced out table/seating creating a relaxing atmosphere, my table had a position viewing the patio and lawnwhich was plesant. The food was well presented and delicious.

    A lovely meal celebrating a relative's 93rd birthday. Staff very friendly and attentive. The meal was beautifully cooked and presented, with some of the nicest vegetables, cooked to perfection that we have, had anywhere. A very pleasant experience in nice surroundings.
