The waitress was incredibly rude when we walked in, we asked for a table and were informed that the restaurant was full and she was unable to tell us how long we would have to wait. We had a drink at the bar and ordered...More

We had cheesy garlic bread and lasagne both of which were good and plentiful. What lets this review down is poor wine at a premium price and indifferent service from the older waiting staff. On the night we went the card machine had broken but...More

We eat at the Y Cwrt twice during out visit to Bela. We had Pizza's on our first visit and two course Italian meals on our second visit. We were delighted with the service and food during both visits. I can highly recommend this restaurant.

This lovely restaurant is well located on the high street. The menu is slightly dominated by pizza, but the food was delicious and delivered in a timely manner by friendly staff. We will return!

Y Cwrt is a converted courthouse. If the judge had donned his black cap you could be sure of a cracking last meal! Pasta and pizza dominate the menu but interesting alternatives. Wine bar atmosphere in deepest Wales

We visited this restaurant on Saturday 18th March. It certainly looks like a lovely restaurant. The service we received was good although the young male and female waiters looked very busy probably could of done with an extra pair of hands. We ordered a pizza...More

What a lovely find! Pizza amazing and fast service at good prices. Stay are lovely and friendly. I would recommend they need more staff on a Saturday night and that three isn't enough. Would go again
