The Gun Room at Plas Dinas
What a lovely place. We were treated as VIP’s from the moment we walked in. The food was excellent. Nothing to fault. We have booked to go again next Christmas.
Lovely surrounding, lovely Christmas decorations and open log fire.
Fantastic welcome from the staff, great food, some of the best in the area.
Looking forward to returning!
Superb food, great atmosphere and first class service, what mor could anyone ask for
lovely place, lovely setting, wonderful food, nice complementary mini courses in between dinner courses. Service was very good, a very nice candle lit dinner
From the minute we stepped in to moment we left, the service was excellent, atmosphere, staff and most of all the food, highly recommend and would definitely go back again, soon I hope.
Wow! Absolutely stunning ! Smokies to start. Then Beef. Then the Blackberry Crumble.
All three courses were perfect.
We are regulars at Plas Dinas. Had not tried the Crumble before. Will have it next time definitely.
The staff were attentive at all times. The little extras were a treat, especially the Veloute. Not as many canapés as usual- more next time please!
Thank you all for a perfect evening.
Booked online on a Saturday evening which was extremely busy.Told when we arrived that we were on a re-sit table,which was perfectly acceptable.Were kept waiting for ages for our pre dinner drink and waiting a long time to be seated at our table.The food was fine,but we missed out on the sorbet,as the waiter forgot!
I think the new owner needs to realise that when trying to cram people in,he needs seats to sit them down,and the kitchen can only dish out so many dishes.The establishment may well have been trying to make up for a quiet week,but standards can not be compromised,as locals like ourselves will not keep supporting.We will return,but hope that things will be back to the excellent standard previously enjoyed.
The whole process for the evening meal was well planned with all patrons meeting for drinks prior to being escorted in. The service, food and ambience was first class
Beautiful house, very warm welcome, great service and exceptional food.
Sadly despite really looking forward to a lovely evening with family for my birthday I was rather disappointed. To begin with we were given the wrong menu and everything I’d chosen was unfortunately on an old menu so wasn’t available.
We were served drinks with ice when we’d specifically requested none. We had to ‘ask’ for the wine list & as we were having fish to start we’d chosen a white wine to accompany it. Unfortunately by the time the waiter came back to the table to allow us to order we’d finished the fish so just ordered a bottle of red to accompany our main course. The staff were not attentive & we were left without drinks for long periods. Service was very slow and I don’t think that there were enough staff to cater for the number of guests that evening.
We had intended returning with friends however the poor service has put us off.
The food was delicious and the venue is beautiful. Such a shame.
As usual, chef Dan and his team produced fantastic tasting food, from the Smokie for stater, and the Welsh beef and the guinea fowl for our mains, and all the bits in between.
Fantastic, we’ll be back next month to sample November’s menu.
Ferdinando and his team also looked after us very well,
And as usual the Gun room at Plas Dinas provided a fantastic relaxed start to the weekend.
No one took the wine order until we mentioned it, and then we had to remind the waiter when the wine didn’t arrive! Aperitif glasses left uncollected throughout the meal.
However, food was fine, if not exceptional, and atmosphere was conducive.
Excellent meal and terrific value would highly recommend
An amazing experience and so well looked after by the staff. Food was just lush!
Highly recommend the cocktail- Twinkle
Absolutely fabulous food at this delightful country house. Romantic if you want it to be. Delicious in every way!
The venue is fine for a special occasion such as an anniversary but the beef steak was not particularly tender and the chips were a bit dry in texture. Otherwise the food was acceptable.
Food and service very good table location not very welcoming tucked away in a back room that used to be a bar. No atmosphere or view of the garden.
Lovely evening at the Gun Room. Great food, great staff.
Best way to start the weekend!
We had a wonderful evening at Plas Dinas. The venue is delightful, the service SO good, the food and wine were delicious we would recommend eating here to all our friends. Everything was perfect for our special evening.
This place is a hidden gem, great food, location, ambience and staff. Should be busier
We go there regularly and this trip was not the best. Food ok but better last trip. Desert not good at all.
Excellent venue and service. Food was all excellent but the seafood platter starter was a bit bland.
We had snacks and drinks in the Gun Room while looking through the meny and placing our orders. After 15-20 minutes we where shown to our seats in the inner room.
Nice historical atmosphere, knowledgable staff and great food. The only thing that was not 5 star was the wine. We had to remind them to bring the bottle we ordered to our main course. And when it arrived it was way too warm. I'd guess 21 C instead of 17 C that would have been preferable.
But all in all a great experience
This was possibly the best meal I've ever eaten, with lovely staff in a beautiful setting.
We enjoyed the whole evening including ambience, food, polite waiters and manager. It gave you a feeling of being in a family home and that maybe the family had just popped out!
Another lovely relaxed evening at The Gun Room.
Outstanding food, as usual, from Dan, the chef, and the usual friendly and efficient service from Paula and her team.
We’ll be back next month!
Great quality food, superbly prepared. Very attentive waiting staff.
Excellent food with a unique atmosphere. Outstanding quality and preparation although portions were a bit small. It was more about quality than quantity. However, If you are looking for a dining experience, this is the place to go.
been here a number of times it never fails to make the evening a enjoyable experience
Wonderful evening with everything excellent - will be back soon
With reservation - waiter service and attention poor. Training required and familiarity with menu and drink options very poor. Could be outstanding but offer not there ...... yet. Customer focus poor.
My partner and I spent a very pleasant and enjoyable evening at The Gun Room. We were warmly welcomed by the friendly and helpful Fernando who answered all our questions> The food was superb, I had the fish which was delicious whilst my partner had the Welsh lamb, which she assured me was lovely. Service at the table was carried out efficiently by Aled and I have no complaints.
The Gun Room is an excellent restaurant where you dine on excellent food in opulent surroundings.
I will have no hesitation in recommending this establishment to my friends and thanks to all concerned for a pleasant, memorable and great value experience!
Very nice tasty & presentable would visited again very soon
Fabulous meal as usual, chef Dan at his usual creative genius!
Nice to see Ferdinando on duty, haven’t seen him for a while, him his team looked after us well.
We’ll be back!
Fantastic food and lovely setting. Staff were attentive and polite. Would absolutely recommend and will definitely be back!
Very good food in a very nice setting. The waiting staff could have been a bit more attentive but it wasn't too big an issue. Would definitely return.
Anniversary dinner while with family in Wales.
The hotel is in a lovely setting and easy to find.
The pre-drinks are in a long room, decked out with Lord Snowdon memorabilia (in a good way).
Food was lovely, well cooked and service was great.
Would visit again if in the area
A nice hotel but the restaurant, whilst pleasant enough, is over priced for what is offered.
Food was minimalist in quantity and not particularly novel. Claims to be rather more exclusive and special than it is.
Great food, interesting surroundings, lovely atmosphere and service.
Once again my wife and I enjoyed a wonderful experience at The Gun Room,which is excellent and consistent.The welcome and service when we arrive is always good and made to feel very comfortable.The food is well cooked and tasty,and no waiting between courses.Well worth a visit for any occasion.
