Went Saturday 2nd. December with my wife, daughter, son in law and two grandsons. We all had an enjoyable meal, various main course dishes enjoyed by all although mine was very non spicy and lacking in the heat I expected. The restaurant was not particularly busy but service was very slow, probably due to the fact that a lot of time was spent on take away orders.

Tonight was our fifth or sixth visit to this quirky restaurant, we phoned to book a table for 7 o’clock and arrived just before. The restaurant wasn’t busy, we were shown to our table by a member of staff who seemed thoroughly disinterested and not at all welcoming. We ordered drinks which arrived approximately 10 minutes later, placed the order for our meal, only to have to wait 45 minutes for it to arrive. Whilst we were waiting we became aware of how shabby, rundown and grubby looking everything was especially the carpets. Finally when we went to pay for our meal extra money was added, when queried another equally indifferent member of staff then said “oh didn’t she tell you there was a premium attached to that dish” and tried to fob us off with pathetic excuses, not happy at all so therefore will not be returning or recommending to friends. I’ve always believed that going out for dinner should be a pleasant experience and this certainly was not.

Turned up just after 1pm, signs says lunch 12-2pm, go inside, man on phone, ignores us, then when eventually he acknowledged we existed he refused to make food as the kitchen had to close at 2pm. We only wanted a main but they still refused. Have been here before had always been good and have recommended to many - not any more, unwilling to,prepare a meal for two in 45 mins? WTF?

An original dining experience on a dry docked boat on the River Teifi. Charming service and delicious curry.

Dined alone last Friday, quirky little place but the food and views are excellent.
I found the staff friendly and helpful and a good portion of quality food.
