The food was outstanding and it was a very nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Not a complaint but they were very slow at serving drinks. Apart from that would highly recommend!

We came early doors and thought it was just going to be a nice romantic quiet night with my partner. The food as always was superb and the staff friendly as normal. However, we ended up staying for 5 hours due to the party night entertainment. The male artist (Zion I think) was good fun, had a great voice and was engaged with the audience. On the whole we had a fantastic very unexpected Xmas party night. Thank you.

Visited here for my graduation celebrations and was over the moon with the food and service. The gentleman who served us was welcoming and very helpful. I was given a free glass of champagne courtesy of them followed by a beautiful dessert with congratulations written on off their own backs. My whole family had a lovely time with fabulous food and service and I’d love to thank them for that. They made my day extra special :-)

Lovely views from window tables. Had 3 course deal for £14.95 and thoroughly enjoyed every course. Has good choices, bit more interesting than lots of other deals I have seen in other restaurants.

We had just moved in to the village the day before and decided to walk the mile or so in the lovely sunshine to have an evening meal. It was a well worth it. The food was good value for money, nicely presented and very tasty. The service was polite and friendly too. What a nice start to our new life. Thank you

This was by far the best experience we have had at Croes Howell. There was nothing to complain about at all.
Service by the 2 ladies was excellent and the choice and price of the lunchtime menu was perfect. Clean plates proved it!
Definitely the best visit there.

Booked for my sons 25th Birthday family meal. (party of 5)
As usual a warm welcome and were happy for us to wait while everyone arrived.
the menu has a good range of food available.
We always enjoy our meal at Croes Howell - and it is a first choice for both my sons when we want a meal out.
It was the first time my boyfriend came with us and he enjoyed his visit immensely.
I like the atmosphere and you never feel pressurised to eat your food fast. the courses come in a timely manner with plenty of time in between courses to enjoy the food.
the staff are friendly and don't over check that you are enjoying your meal - I personally don't like to be asked every few minutes if everything is ok and they have the balance just right.
The food is reasonably priced and the bill is never a shock.
Thank you for a lovely meal.

Lovely food, bit disappointed that we booked for a Sunday night and were not informed that only a Sunday Lunch set menu was available. The staff were brilliant when they found out our predicament, as we wanted to eat from the al a carte, they gave us more options and the food was amazing. Staff incredibly helpful, Chefs brilliant would recommend
