Visited last Saturday 04/02/17 whilst taking a drive to Gwbert, Nr. Cardigan. Saw the restaurant was open decided to have lunch. 1st impressions were good, with friendly staff and a well appointed restaurant overlooking Cardigan Bay and the Tefi Estuary. The menu was varied but not large which means the food will be well cooked and presented. We were not... More

Today, after quite an eventful morning my partner and I decided to get in the car for the short drive it is to the flat rock from ours, and have a late lunch. I called before arrival to see if walking in at anytime was a possibility. And it sure was. We arrived just before 2.30pm to a busy and... More

Nice big restaurant which is nicely presented, great views from here. Nice bar area to sit and drink if not eating. Friendly, pleasant staff. Food is very good with large portions and reasonably priced. The restaurant was full on Sunday lunch time which is a good sign and also quite a few people in on a Sunday night in January,... More

We had friends staying with us and went here for lunch one Saturday. My wife and I had eaten here a couple of times in December and been pleasantly surprised. It was a beautiful sunny day and we were a bit late. Not a problem. We were first seated in comfortable sofas where we ordered drinks and our meals. We... More
