    We've been visiting the restaurant for a couple of years now and have fallen in love with the place. I took my parents for the first time last night and they too were very impressed.

    They have a new chef, his change of style was particularly noticeable to us. Lacked, that flamboyant style we were so very used to. However, the food was outstanding, beautifully presented and tasted exquisite.

    A wonderful experience once again, well done again.

    I dined at Hammet House on the occasion of my son's 30th birthday. Prior to our arrival I had made various special requests each of which were fulfilled to the T. These included a birthday cake decorated with my son's name 'Willoughby' which was spelled correctly!!! In addition we were greeted with chilled champagne, as instructed, and the wine I had preselected had been decanted and was served at the perfect temperature. All the staff were very friendly but professional and discreet. They made us feel at home whilst catering to all our needs. Matt Smith, the Head Chef, lived up to his reputation. The amuse-bouche. a wild garlic panna cotta, both looked and tasted wonderful and I can fully recommend the roe deer which was pink, soft and delicious. I'm only sorry I didn't have the opportunity of tasting the desserts but we were impressed and entertained by the bowl of dark green spruce sprigs and bright sunny lemons which sat on an essence of pine forest and Mediterranean released when dry ice was activated. The heady vapour cleared the senses ready for our lemon drizzle birthday cake. A touch of Matt Smith's mentor, Heston Blumenthal. The contemporary decor, including Philippe Starck's iconic Ghost dining chairs, acting as a foil to the late 18th Century Hammet House itself, may not be to everyone's taste but is not overpowering and does work in my opinion. If I had one reservation it would be that the beautiful plates were not locally sourced which is a bit of a wasted opportunity given how rich Wales is in talented potters.

    Obsolutely stuning!
    Hammet House is in a beautiful location and quirkily cosily appointed.
    The food is exquisite and the service attentive without being intrusive.
    A truly first class place to stay or to visit for lunch or dinner.

    Visited here on our wedding anniversary,we were both very disappointed to say the least!!! The cakes were uninspiring and the best part was the champagne .Although the service was good and the lady who served us was very pleasant.

    Very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Pre dinner canapes were delicious. Presentation of the food added to it's enjoyment. Novel soup and fish starter , followed by traditional turkey was our choice , vegetables were plentiful. Sweet of lemon meringue, broken down into it's elements and enhanced by liquid nitrogen poured over lemons sitting in a nest of pine leaves, added to the aroma of lemons with a spectacular mist across the table..
    Attentive service throughout lunch. I personally found the grey decor a little drab but it did give a feeling of dining in a cosy space which warmed the perspex seating.All in all excellent.
