Birthday afternoon tea. Was lovely but I thought the venue lacked atmosphere. Food was good and reasonably priced

We were looking for a better than average venue for a special birthday lunch and this is just what we got. The setting, service and food were just delightful and our group of ladies had an excellent birthday celebration with just the right touch of class. New House has one of the best views in the area and our window... More

Sat beside the open fire my colleague and I studied the menu while enjoying a pre-dinner drink in the adjacent bar. Unrehearsed, we found ourselves ordering exactly the same meals: Sirloin steak followed by cheeseboard. Ushered to a fine table at the window, the lights of distant Cardiff flickered as if to welcome us, our steaks, hand cut chunky chips,... More

We visited for a family lunch in December 2016. The menu was extremely limited, which usually means that the meal will be good because it's all freshly prepared. My mother in law and her cousin had the turkey meal, the meat was dry, the sausages looked and tasted like they had been cooked and reheated many times, after trying to... More

Dreadful parking for disabled people.Toilets too far to walk and only one disabled. Food not up to good hotel standard. Uncooked carrots, cauliflower cheese, could not cut so hard. Potatoes roasted but Uncooked, so big.

This is the restaurant inside the New House Country Hotel. If you're not staying at the hotel, go here anyway - it's worth the trip. The hotel boasts excellent views of the city from the dining room and patio tables. The chef is creative and talented. The menu changes regularly, though there are some staples. We go occasionally just to... More

We ate in this restaurant whilst staying for two nights at the New House Country Hotel and enjoyed good food and service on both occasions. The menu makes extensive use of locally sourced meat and vegetables as well as fish from the coast nearby. Service was good; the food was well prepared and the night time view of the lights... More

This is the restaurant inside the New House Country Hotel where we lived for a month this summer. We ate nearly all of our meals here and never had a bad meal. In additional to delicious food, it is beautifully served on china. The chef uses seasonal local ingredients and updates the menu accordingly. Since moving out of the hotel... More

The restaurant was very dreary with some of the wall lights either not switched on or not working. The service was very poor due to what appeared to be a severe shortage of staff with only very inexperienced staff available. First impression was one of great disappointment on what should have been a special occasion. The food was good but... More
