    I don't go in for "dining experiences". It's about good company, good food and pleasant surroundings. "Experiences" are much more significant than that.

    Great House is head and shoulders above anywhere else I've eaten in Bridgend (not a huge list I have to admit). Food is potentially good - but the interesting things (lambs sweetbreads) were not available, the cod was over cooked, there were not enough vegetables either on the plate or on offer as a side dish (if memory serves correct there was a salad and many, many sorts of potatoes, no beans nor brassicas nor anything else in these avoid the carbs days). So clearly better than a microwave in the bag pub, but a little short of what I would expect for £50/head lunch in Bridgend.

    Your mark-up on the wine is dubious to say the least. Brocard Chablis is about 12 Euros from the man himself - The Great House offers it at £35 - nearly a 400% mark up. I asked in advance about corkage and was refused.

    From entering the place it was perfect. Wonderful service, beautiful attention to detail and the meal was superb. Our guests couldn't praise it highly enough. I hope it continues to keep to that level of standard. Highly recommend this beautiful restaurant.
