25th Wedding Anniversary

My Wife and I spent a weekend at The Great House to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We had an absolutely wonderful time On arrival we were greeted by Karen, who couldn't do enough for us during our stay. It's like going back in time as the quaint historical ambiance washes over you.

Wedding guest

What can I say, on arrival we were very impressed, the decor outside was very fitting for a wedding, the gardens were beautiful, and the house itself very attractive. First salute, the young lady at the bar was very courteous and very friendly.

Nothing was a problem

All very courteous and helpful. Nothing was a problem. It's a gorgeous building with potential for an engagement. Intend on returning and will recommend . Food is first class and good choices. Have been there once for a wedding and it was all amazing.

Surprisingly great food. A real gem.

Everything about my meal was perfect. I don’t normally write reviews. My expectations were average and I was blown away. Great food!

Met friends for lunch - this lovely hotel is half way between Swansea and Cardiff. The food was lovely, the service was excellent. Charming setting and delightful staff. Good value for money and a great experience. We will go again soon.

Jan S,
Excellent food

Funnily enough I was driving down to Swansea for an early meeting the following day and searched Bridgend restaurants.....this one came up! Imagine my surprise to know it was Tom Healy’s restaurant....I admired his cooking from great British menu. The food was truly sublime, full of flavour, texture and originality. Would fully recommend

Peter B,
Lovely warm welcome and great food

Lovely to see a small boutique hotel like this thriving. Big plus point is the bar where the gin list to enormous and the restaurant which, though pricey, is worth every penny. Food is delicious and unusual. Definitely worth a diversion.

Great little boutique hotel

Great little boutique hotel just outside Bridgend town centre. Beautiful exterior as you drive in. Quaint style room, great fashionable restaurant and really lovely attentive staff. Will stay again that’s for sure.

Night away

First time to stay at this hotel. Myself and my husband booked the regal suite for one night. Staff were very attentive on arrival. And catered to all our needs . We booked into their restaurant that evening where the food was amazing and they couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast the next morning was very tasty and a nice variety. All in all an amazing stay and will definitely stay again in the near future.


My friend took me here for my birthday lunch. The restaurant is lovely and cosy with a homely ambience. The staff were so friendly. The lunch menu choice was excellent. We both had mackerel to start then my friend had pan roast chicken and I had roast cod. To finish I had the banana cake dessert and my friend had the apple cheesecake. The food is excellent and plenty. We will definitely come here again and bring our husbands. I fully recommend this restaurant.

Great experience

My wife and I had a meal there on New Year's Eve. Fantastic! The taster menu was interesting, varied and delicious. The service was attentive and friendly. Overall an excellent and enjoyable experience. Thank you to all concerned. Will definitely be back.

Amazing afternoon

Visited there 5th October. There were 4 of us in a wedding party.
Thank you for making our afternoon special. The service was exceptional so was the food and the wine. We also had some beautiful photos in your garden. Thank you again to you all.

Wonderful experience

We went for a Sunday roast. The food was lovely but what stood out was the exceptional customer service. It is rare nowadays, but everyone waiting on, was friendly and attentive. We will definitely go again and would recommend it to anyone.

Perfect Wedding Venue

We found the staff, especially Hannah, to be very helpful in assisting us to arrange our wedding reception.
Nothing was ever too much effort. They even took the setting of the table into their own hands and did a beautiful job. The food was superb... I could not thank them enough. Our rooms were super. 

Excelllent food and service

We spent a night here in a fabulous quirky bedroom, beautifully fitted. We love the character of this Hotel and it has been refurbished with great care and taste.
The food is fantastic. Highly recommend

Wedding at The Great House

We booked our wedding at The Great House Hotel and we could not have been any happier. Eleanor and Hannah and the staff, could not have done more for us to make it a fabulous and memorable day and night... Nothing was too much trouble...Our ceremony room was beautifully decorated...The grounds were perfect for our photos and the whole day went off without a hitch. The food was absolutely stunning... I can't recommend this place highly enough.

Evening Meal

The food was delicate, very delicious and presented with great attention to detail. Everything on the plate was very complementing of one another. Great atmosphere and wonderful service. Surprised the restaurant wasn’t busier, even for a week day. Would recommend!

Extra Special Christening Buffet

We had a christening buffet lunch at the great house today. Having Eleanor on hand prior to today to answer any questions and helped make today such a success. The staff on hand throughout were helpful, friendly and the food was plentiful and to a high standard. Made the christening of our grandson extra special.

Cooked to perfection

We loved our festive meal. Everything was cooked to perfection. The chef really excelled himself. The waiter was lovely. We will book again for next year.
