    The service was excellent and all the guidelines were followed to the maximum relating to COVID, we felt extremely safe and comfortable. The food was to a high standard with a good varied menu. I did book again but unfortunately this has had to be cancelled due to the lockdown in Cardiff.

    We had Sunday lunch two chicken dinners and one nut roast. The vegetables were not done properly which was disappointing they needed a bit more cooking. The staff were good and we explained why we didn’t/couldn’t eat the veg.

    This is the second time I have been here as of late and sadly the same issues, the staff are wonderfully polite and friendly however when sitting in the ‘snug’ area you tend to get forgotten about and can go quite some time without seeing anyone, we were sat for 20 minutes before our drinks order was taken and that’s only because I had to interrupt the server. The started were delicious and went down very well however the main courses of Sunday roast were very poor, the meats were dry, the roast potatoes were soggy the veg was over cooked and the crackling was as hard as a rock and we had raw leeks. I appreciate our table was booked for around 1400 and the meat was most likely cooked a few hours before but how any chef could be happy to send that poor quality of food is baffling. A complaint was made and we were given a reduction on our bill which was appreciated but sadly this all deflated the birthday celebrations we were there for.

    Great food. Kitchens open and spotlessly clean. Tables not too close. Friendly servers. Lovely ambiance.

    The service was excellent as was the food. Great choices on the menu, would highly recommend.

    Sunday lunch was overpriced for what was received. Whilst the food was tasty, the balance of the plate was wrong and we certainly felt disappointed by the food we received. Service was great and the decor was good, but on balance we’d struggle to justify returning for Sunday lunch when there are far better options available locally.

    Unfortunately we were disappointed with our experience. The vegan onion tart was served as just the tart, no sides and was priced at £12.50 which seemed over priced. The roasts that were served were unfortunately bland with vegetables that came from a bag and was reheated.

    We have visited here many times and really enjoyed it, however last Sunday 3/3 we came with my family to celebrate a birthday to find that there were no roasts left and also many choices unavailable. In addition it was not tp the usual standard and would say what we had was so so!. Very disappointing considering the previous visits we have not had any complaints .
