We were staying at Ty Newydd Country Hotel and this was the hotel's restaurant. Very clean and modern. Staff were excellent both at breakfast and dinner. Good range of food and wines well priced.

I have visited this restaurant 3 times during the past year, and on each occasion it has left me feeling rather dissatisfied on a number of levels:- the menu is not competitively priced, elements from a shared starter were missing and the seasoning of the main course (particularly the sauce) were 'off '. One of the visits was for afternoon... More

Went here as it was the restaurant at the hotel, food was great local produce and they tried to ensure that they managed table bookings to allow maximum service. They succeeded would go again which is always the best recommendation.

Had both our evening meals here. Service excellent, and food likewise. We enjoyed our meal so much on 1st night that we had exactly the same choice the following evening. The chicken and hake from the set menu were delicious.

Certain sides on the menu were not served. When asked we were told they had run out. Small portions and potatoes/chips extra. Food well cooked. Expensive.

Had breakfast, lunch and dinner here. Food of a good standard, typical British cuisine. Nice staff. However it won't blow your socks off.

My wife and I decided to visit Caradogs Restaurant to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary as we had held our wedding day reception at the hotel. We arrived and my wife instantly noticed the food hygiene rating displayed in the window which showed a rating of only 2 out of 5. We entered the foyer and the reception desk where... More

Went here for Sunday lunch for very special 80th birthday. Even though we booked well in advance (9 months) we were told that we could not be accommodated until 14:15, we were then seated in the cold conservatory where there was no atmosphere. Asked what meats were available on the car very we were told 'beef, lamb, pork and chicken'!... More
