I chose to meet a friend for a catch up lunch at the The Croes Howell which is in a lovely semi rural location, with good views from the window tables. Service was friendly and efficient with our waitress explaining that my choice of pan fried chicken breast was cooked to order thus forewarning a slight delay. When it arrived the food was tasty and nicely presented. The lunch menu had sufficient choice and well priced. Will return and would recommend to others.

Staff and food excellent. Unfortunately our meal was marred by locals threatening to drink elsewhere because we were there. Also regulars pointing and making fun of my wife during my quiet birthday celebration

First time back in around 12 months but never does the quality of the food change. This was a catch up Saturday evening meal with friends. All had different from each of the courses and all excellently prepared and presented. Would say that it was reasonably priced for what you get. Staff all very friendly. Will be back again in the not too distant future.

We had an enjoyable lunch. The service was fine if a little slow. One found the chicken gravy too salty, the burger was dry and the mashed potatoes had lots of potatoe skin in it. We didn’t send anything back as what we had was good value for money.

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!

The decoration was pleasant for Christmas. All the meals arrived together .
Only improvement I would offer , would have been nice not to have to to the bar for drinks once seated.

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.

A little disappointed with service as we had a small child and we had rather a long wait between courses. We brought a birthday cake but no one took it to keep it for after the meal or asked us if we wanted to cut it. We left with cake intact.

As a regular very disappointed , asked for window seat put on a wobbly table in reception,wake taking place. Ordered three Christmas lunches worst dinner we have ever had put in front of us, returned these and ended up with three light bites costing £26. This was a gift to our friend. Never before has Croes Howell presented such a disaster . Will think very carefully before booking with you again

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 :-)
