The 2nd time we have been to this restaurant having seen it on trip adviser with a good rating. The first time (a friday evening) was an excellent meal (with a slight mishap over a glass of wine and a sweater, but soon cleared up and the bottle of wine knocked off the bill!) The food is delicious, service friendly... More

Each visit seems to confirm my first report, that this little restaurant gives excellent value good service and serves first class food. You can eat from a £5 single dish menu at lunch time to a £17.50 three course lunchtime menu. We chose from the three course with mushroom soup starters and home made breads, followed by steak pie and... More

Our friends booked the restaurant only telling us it would take thirty minutes to get there. When we arrived I was pleasantly surprised at the light spacious feel though it was quite small with about 25 to 30 seats if that. As soon as we walked in we were made very welcome and comfortable. The menu is not extensive but... More

I noticed this restaurant in the good food guide so thought we'd give it a visit. The food was absolutely delicious and we will definitely return. I had baked perlwen cheese with chutney and the most delicious bread. For mains I had the bean bake again delicious. But top of the show was the chocolate dessert which tempted me to... More

I was treated to a lunch at Valans Restaurant today, and what a beautiful experience! Professional, warm, friendly staff, bright furnishing and a menu celebrating locally sourced ingredients. The highlight- A pot of molten Perl Las, crusty bread and home made onion chutney .... HEAVENLY!!

Visited the restaurant twice in the last month and it really is a great find and highly recommended to anyone who enjoys fine food. Very affordable and great value for money, staff are fantastic, all of them. Great menu choice, hats off to the chef and kitchen staff.

Came here for a birthday lunch with a friend, having been here previously and given an excellent rating, I was looking forward to it, however we were both disappointed with our experience. To start we ordered a prawn salad, unfortunately we were served a few prawns and lettuce leaves in a small pot, this does not consist of a salad... More

A table of 8 of us travelled to this little restaurant after being told how lovely it was. Well how right that was!! 7 out of the 8 had starters all which came out together, beautifully presented and all to a great taste. I can personally say the beef for main was absolutely divine and literally just melted away. The... More
