I can only say that this is by far the best place I have ever eaten. Sunday lunch is outstanding. Tonight I had the valentine meal which from starter to dessert was delicious. You have to try it.

Visited as two families with children and ate in Dexter’s Cwtch. Lovely room with a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Staff are very accommodating and the food was excellent, would defiantly return to try the tapas or a themed night.

We love everything about this place! Went for the Six Nations dinner and they done themselves proud - each of the 6 courses were perfection and the service was fantastic (Nicola in particular is a little angel).

They had gone all out to make the evening even more special with a mini rugby pitch and posts in the middle of the restaurant, classic matches being shown on the tv's and all the flags hanging from the beams, they really do try hard here to make your experience exceptional. The chef Rob came around after the meal to chat to everyone and it was nice to have the opportunity to thank him for such wonderful food, he is such a nice man and so talented. It was definitely an evening to remember.

We popped in the week beforehand to pay for the dinner and from the bar menu had the best burgers we've ever tasted. Everything, even the ketchup and coleslaw was homemade.

Well done the Islwyn Inn! Such a one-off place, a lot of restaurants could learn from your ideas and we can't wait to return.

Visited the Islwyn Inn for the first time yesterday. One of the best Sunday Lunches we have had. Everything was lovely and hot the roast beef was as tender as could be and very tasty and loads of tasty veg and a fantastic price to finish off. Would recommend to anybody.

First time at the Islwyn Inn and won't be the last. Food was delicious, recommend the braised rump of lamb. Meat was like butter. Good portions as well, cheese board was plentifully and I didn't finish it!! Service was too notch and friendly. Highly recommended
