Called at this Bar & Grill for lunch whilst touring the area. We both ordered the Welsh Lamb Burger and were very surprised at the quality and size of the burger. It was delicious although quite expensive for a burger at £13.95. But having said...More

This is a lovely place with great interior and a great view, a place you want to spend time in. However, my food was pretty poor. Very greasy pasta with not much flavour... everyone else's food looked much nicer than mine so perhaps it's just...More

Response from Graham C | Reviewed this property |
I would think so, because of the good food and popularity and also I would presume the staying guests would use the restaurant so limiting table numbers. Good luck and hope you enjoy your meal.
Why do you not have a reservation system that works. My wife and I called in for a drink mid day to specifically reserve a particular table (No.3) for 7:30pm. The reason being that my wife has a back problem and needs an upholstered seat. However, when we arrived, our reserved table had been set up with others for a party of 14 people. Very disapointed to be offered a small table next to the till. We booked again for the following night and fortunately we got our requested table. We booked again for the third night in a row and yet again our reserved table had been given to another couple despite us arriving 15 minutes early. What made it worse was that the couple only had a main course and left just as we were finishing our first course. The wooden seat was very uncomfortable for my wife and this spoilt what was otherwise a nice meal. After spending over £180 on the three course meals during the three nights, we think you should have not accepted our reservation if you can not provide the table we had reserved. We think we should try somewhere else if this is your system of booking tables. It is obviously lacking. Last year we gave the restaurant a five star report on Trip Advisor. We could not honestly do that this time. Mr & Mrs H Overend.

Hi. Thank you for your message. We are located in a rural location with very limited crime. Our experience of the area is very safe. There isn't a tube service available. Hope this helps. Many thanks
