We took our Mums for lunch, it was very busy, but food and service were great. Would have preferred a more varied menu, but I appreciate limitations are necessary on such a busy day. Will definitely be back soon.

This little place in the middle of nowhere (sorry Swansea and Neath people!). Service impeccable. Wine lovely. Atmosphere really warm and cosy. And it’s super reasonable. It’s on a par with Ramsay’s gastro pub in Regents Park. I hope I return soon
