Another very good meal at The Cradock Arms. Welsh Rarebit every bit as good as the last time we were there. My wife's Mushroom Wellington was as good as last time and my Sirloin steak was the best steak I have had for a long time and was cooked to perfection. 2 courses and 2 rounds of drinks for just over £50 for this quality is very good value

We were shown to our table but after half an hour had gone by I had to stop a waiter and let him know that nobody had been to ask for our drinks and food order. He was very apologetic but did ensure that a waitress came to us immediately. The drinks came very quickly but there was a long wait for our meals. However when the meals arrived they were lovely and hot and very delicious. In favour of the establishment it was an extremely busy evening with obvious delays in the kitchen. On a less busy evening I don't think we would have encountered any problems. I will certainly visit again as the range and quality of food is very good

We have been coming to The Cradock Arms once or twice a week for about 3 years now. Needless to say we find the food is always excellent, the staff welcoming and courteous and basically we just love it!

I have been to The Cradock for a meal on several occasions. The surroundings are always very pleasant and clean, and even when they are busy there always seems to be plenty of space. Also, the staff are always very attentive without being intrusive, and are extremely pleasant and accommodating, even when items are requested which are not on the menu for that particular day. It is one of my favourite places for a lunchtime meal.

Lovely meal, didn't have to wait long for our food once ordered and all the meals were delicious. We all had roasts and the vegetables in particular were scrummy, so many serve them over cooked and spoilt. Didn't all have room for puddings but the ones that were ordered were to die for...... Staff were very friendly, lovely atmosphere there today, nothing was too much trouble for the staff, highly recommend you visit😀

Sunday lunch was excellent. Only marked down because (i) was told were booked up when tried to move time in advance, when they clearly weren’t (there is plenty of space and unused main rooms); and (ii) we didn’t find the two female staff (students possibly) on the tables very professional. We asked for a slight variation to the menu (due to one of the party being ill) and were treated with disdain for doing so, with a ‘can’t do’ attitude, and subsequent whispering between them, eye rolling etc. which was off putting. May give them a second chance because the food was good, but was an unpleasant experience, especially after a two hour drive to get there and catch up with relatives.
