The food was lovely, the staff were very attentive & it was so nice to see the Glan back to its former self. It's been a while since we visited for food but I can certainly say we'll be back very soon. Thanks you for a lovely evening & welcome back 😀

A group of 8 girl work friends went to the Glan for a 30th Birthday meal, and I have to say we were a little anxious as we had heard and seen some bad reviews, however we needn't of been... We all had different meals - steak, lasagne, veggie burger, pie, scampi, chicken, chicken strips which we had pre-ordered before... More

Went for a family meal at lunchtime on Christmas Eve.The food was superb and the new Chef Dan came to speak to us.The plan is to source his food locally and put the Glan back where it belongs.The service was great and cheerful. We will definitely be returning

£25 per head to be handed tinned veg thrown on a plate with dry meat which was supposed to be turkey. Then asked to leave and not come back as we complained. Very bad manners from the staff and so called management.

One star is too much to even give but this is for the one mature lady who worked upstairs on the night. She was lovely. Well where do I start. £25.00 for 3 course Christmas dinner seemed reasonable enough. Starter came out half an hour later than we arrived even though all our meals where pre-ordered. Frozen prawns and jar... More

Spent some time planning a visit here for my other half's birthday meal with the in laws - we don't live locally so relied on Trip Advisor, Facebook and the good ole interweb, to suggest somewhere new (and not a bloody Harvester or such like). A very professional website, and I mean very nice, led me to look into what... More
