Where to start ok staff are friendly starters first class but the dinner grave was pastey with no flaver what so ever. mash no butter or cream no taste. Sprouts soaking wet mushe not a tall good. What can I say to be honest I'd find a new Cook as the dinner was disgusting .

The food was lovely, the staff were very attentive & it was so nice to see the Glan back to its former self. It's been a while since we visited for food but I can certainly say we'll be back very soon. Thanks you for a lovely evening & welcome back 😀

£25 per head to be handed tinned veg thrown on a plate with dry meat which was supposed to be turkey. Then asked to leave and not come back as we complained. Very bad manners from the staff and so called management.
