If you want freshly cooked, quality home cooked gastro style food this is the place. Quality and quantity in equally proportioned measure. This place isn't a chain and I presume family run so retains a lot of charm. It is not pretentious at all with a few locals at the bar and very friendly staff. Some reviews have mentioned a... More

Well, what can I say...... Food was phenomenal, I had the steak & ale pie which was amazing followed by the sticky toffee pud & ice cream. Second time visiting and both experiences were first class. (By the way the portions are generous.) If you are in the area make sure you have cash on board your person and pop... More

Wonderful food with huge portion sizes. I would advise booking as it seemed very popular even though we were there late afternoon. There is a large variety of dishes to choose from.

I am partial to a bit of fish, and my daughter took me out to try the fish at the ffrwd. Fresh, tasty and full of flavour. I recommend you try the pan fried halibut with king prawns and garlic butter.

A great place to go for food and a chilled out of town atmosphere. We are local but always book given it's usually full of reserved tables, which is a good sign. The fish pie is delicious and rammed full of fresh fish; my husband had fish and chips - the fish was enormous and the chunky chips yummy! Sunday... More

We had an excellent meal at the Ffrwd on Friday evening but unfortunately there was no atmosphere as there was only another party in. If they lowered their prices by £2.00 per dish, provided a written menu, and stop the ridiculous card charge it would improve the footfall. Unfortunately I will not be recommending this restaurant as you have to... More

I've lived in the area for nearly 3 years and visit the Ffrwd every couple of months. I've never had a bad meal here and everyone who I've brought here for food has said how impressed there were. Even better now the owners have modernized the interior. The food is what I'd call amazing home cooking rather than fancy restaurant... More

We had a variety of meals that were of consistently good quality and all meals were served at the same time. Superb service from the delightful staff and the meals were top notch. Highly recommended - especially after the refurb.
