We stopped at Sosban for lunch on NYE on our way to Tenby. We were four adults and five young children in our group. The restaurant is beautiful and totally unique. The staff were extremely friendly and the food was delightful. Kids were welcomed and their meals were also outstanding. We will be back! Thanks

After visiting several times in the past and always having fabulous food I decided to hold my 30th birthday celebrations here. I had a lot of contact with the restaurant beforehand in preparation, the staff were as friendly and helpful as the lovely ones who served us on the night. The food was served promptly to the entire large party... More

This really was a very poor experience. We were just two adult diners. We ordered one course each. One hour and fifteen minutes later we were still waiting. When the food finally arrived it was abysmal. First, there was a sea bass fillet that was limp and tasteless on a bed of glutinous mush, decorated with orange mussels that would... More

Service was very slow and not really to the standard expected for this type of restaurant - they ran out of the wine we had been drinking. Given it is the Christmas period I'd expect the wine to be stocked up. It was my husbands birthday and we'd pre booked something with candles for them to arrange but it never... More

Service was good but I found the food was very salty, which is no good for me as I don't eat any salt and found that I was very thirsty after my visit.

The building is impressive in itself. For all it is large & industrial, it didn't feel cold. We found the food to be very good, but on the price side. The staff & service were good. Would we go again, regardless of cost, probably yes.

We booked a Sunday lunch at the Sosban as we have previously eaten at the restaurant during the week and the food has always been good. The choice for a Sunday was limited and when we arrived we were told that the beef was off as most diners had chosen beef (not a good start) Between us we chose 2... More

Average food, coupled with poor service. No front of house to greet guests, run out of beef and no attention to detail. Staff need basic training. Venue okay, although very cold. Have visited a few times and will not be returning.
