The Gaerwen Arms
My sirloin was pretty tough, not what I expected, but the rest nice. The service was very kind, but not well-trained. There was no attempt to fill our wine glasses at all. It's not very nice to pour your own wine at a restaurant table. Not sure why something that basic hasn't been looked after. Also, in a restaurant of that quality I expect cloth napkins. And, they need to look after the dinner lighting - way too bright. But good to have a decent restaurant nearby - just work on a few things.
Great meal at the Gaerwen Arms
Delighted with everything..... one very small point..... it would have been nice had the “ fire “ been lit in the dining room.... just for ambiance....
Fantastic from start to finish. Warm welcome, excellent service, brilliant food and lovely atmosphere
First visit to the Gaerwen Arms . Looking for something other than pub food . Overall our experience was very good , nice menu with something for everyone . Our selection was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed our meal . Staff and service was very good and made us feel very welcome. If there is a downside , it is bit expensive which makes it a once in a while dining experience. However having said that we are looking forward to going back with friends at some stage.
We have visited twice before and been very happy. Unfortunately on this visit we all came home hungry having spent well over £100. The children’s menu was very limited. I had checked first online but evidently had logged on to the menu for the old management which the presentowners are unable to remove. The advertised Christmas menu looked excellent but Idohope the portions are bigger. I do hope that this was an aberration but we will not be visiting again in a hurry.
The welcome was great and the staff very friendly. The menu was very varied and not run of the mill pub food, it was difficult to choose. The extra veg we ordered was beautifully cooked but I thought £3.50 was expensive for what it was. The only thing to let the evening down, a minor thing, was the decaff cofffee was instant. We were told that would be changed for a decaff blend soon.
