    Went for the St David’s Day set menu, what a wonderful way to celebrate! The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the food was exquisite, each course surpassed our already high expectations. The Scollops were just perfectly cooked, the bacon satisfyingly salty which the creamiest cauliflower puree. The tartare was punchy and the soda bread an absolute triumph and came with a generous helping g of some incredible salted butter. Our Lamb and Brill mains were equally skilfully cooked and let the ingredients shine through but it was the desserts that truly stole the show. The Créme took the flavours of Bara Brith and really made them sing and the Chocolate Orange took a humble Jaffa cake to a lever of sophistication that needs to be seen to be believed. All rounded off with some cocktails, very reasonably priced wines and two delicious dessert wines, the meal was an utter triumph. We can’t wait to go back. The Welsh cakes with coffee was a really nice touch too. Ardderchog Bryn.

    BENDEGEDIG !! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿…… What a fabulous Birthday treat. As we arrived we were met by Lewis who was so friendly, welcoming and charming. We dined from the 3 course early evening menu - WOW ! …. Amazing flavours and excellent value. The accompanying wine was also excellent. Our waiter (sorry didn’t catch the name) was so helpful and funny …… the restaurant has a lovely relaxed feeling, with food that is amazing. This is a must go to place ….. and I certainly can’t wait to return ! PS…. The extra treat was to have a quick chat with Bryn about the rugby 🏉

    My partner and I tucked into the patron’s straightforwardly labelled menu: for starters, “Potato, cheese, onion” (a super velvety Charlotte potato velouté, onion tart, Welsh rarebit, and chive crème fraîche); and for the mains, “Cornish brill, leek, tartar” (for her, baked brill, leek fondue, tartar velouté, sea herbs) and “Pork, black pudding, cauliflower” (for me, roast pork tenderloin, black pudding croquette, cauliflower purée, sauerkraut); and the signature pud, a Jaffa cake wholly unlike its mass-produced namesake. It’s not just the cooking that’s pretty sublime, the juxtaposition of contrasting textures works really well too. Solicitous and witty service from Lewis, too.

There is a superb wine list including by the glass and the staff are very knowledgeable in this regard. Don’t take my word for this - go try it first yourself - you will not be disappointed.

    An exceptional, delicious and entirely memorable meal! We had the tasting menu and each dish was delightful. High-quality ingredients, thoughtfully prepared and presented, in a welcoming atmosphere. One member of our party had a food allergy that required some changes to the tasting menu, but this was done graciously by Bryn himself, and the service from Sarah could not have been more conscientious and warm. Honestly one of the best dining experiences we’ve had, and we will definitely return!
