We decided to have drinks on an evening. When we walked into the bar there were no staff around, we waited over 5 minutes at the bar before we got served but there was no apology for the wait. People went to the bar after us and they again had to wait but much longer as the staff disappeared again.... More

We sat in the bar for food as the restaurant was fully booked. I had the "belly pork skewer", which was clearly chunks of pork, probably from that afternoons roast dinner leftovers. Sadly, even that was over cooked and left a lot to the imagination. Other than that, an average meal at best. Won't be in a rush to go... More

Thank you for your recent review. Naturally I am disappointed that you did not enjoy your dining experience with us. I perish the thought that we would use leftovers in any of our freshly prepared dishes on the menu, please rest assured that this is not a practice used at Nant Ddu. My apologies however, if you were left feeling... More

Excellent meal on first night, so ate in on second night. Hubby had pork on night two and lamb on first evening. Both excellent, wanted to lick the plate clean. My veggie meal was tasty and I ate it all: guard cheese and spinach pancakes. Would recommend that you visit. Lovely venue with picturesque setting.

The standard of food here is very high and presentation is excellent. There is a very wide choice of food to suit every taste and it was very hard to decide what to order. The staff were attentive, friendly and efficient. The restaurant has a intimate atmosphere and everywhere is very clean. The wine list could do with some higher-end... More
