Meaning land and sea in Welsh, our restaurant and bar, Tir a Môr, takes its cue from our bayside location and the very best produce Wales has to offer.

The kitchen puts a modern twist on our country’s culinary heritage, from Severn & Why smoked salmon, cod and spring onion fishcake to roasted Brecon lamb rump, punchnep hash, creamed Blas y Tir leeks and rosemary jus to slow cooked Welsh beef brisket. Desserts elevate traditional puddings, such as Bara Brith bread and butter pudding, and apple and berry crumble with vanilla and Penderyn whiskey custard.

Our Welsh credentials carry through to our drinks list, with local spirits playing a starring role in our signature cocktails and our own takes on the classics.

    The steak was only warm when served and despite returning it, it was served again the same. Also virtually every dish had garlic in which was a problem because of an allergy. And when the dish was served the second time is was without the mushrooms because all their stock was covered with garlic?

    Raj out of all of the waiters offered a hospitable service. The manager was rude and condescending when explaining the Valentine’s Day menu, which was poorly made, limited options to choose from. Would not recommend to go and celebrate a special occasion.

    Delicious food, but ridiculously expensive for burger and chips (we didn’t realise we couldn’t get the a la carte menu at lunch time until we were there). Service was ridiculously slow and not overly helpful.

    The linked menus from boyh the restaraunt website and OpenTable were out of date. We had expected the "Bar Menu" to be an option, as I was looking forward to one of the salads, only that choice was denied me. Worse, both the menus stated it was an optionl 10% service charge only to find that this is now 12.5%. That said, the food was nice and the staff were all very pleasant.

    We had booked afternoon tea for 3.30pm as part of 50th birthday celebrations. On arrival, the staff were very attentive, we had our prosecco and tea/coffee brought to the table very quickly. Our table had a lovely view over the Bay. There were only a few other tables with guests, so the restaurant was very quiet. At 4pm, after watching people who had been seated after us receive their food, we had to ask a staff member where our food was. Within 5 minutes of asking, our afternoon tea was brought to the table. The sandwiches had clearly been pre-prepared, as the bread was beginning to harden, so I'm not sure why there was such a delay, or why we had to go and ask for our food. The bread was starting to harden, but the sandwich fillings were nice. The cakes were delicious. I only wish we'd had time to stay and appreciate them, but due to the delay we had to eat pretty quickly as our day was quite packed with activities. I also note that the cost should have been £72, but £83 has been charged to my card.

    It’s quite tired. Stains on wooden tables and no table cloths used. Just felt like there were not enough staff. Missing a scone, given another when we finally found someone. Fizz was flat but my guest didn’t want to create a fuss. The sandwiches had clearly been sat around as some sides of bread were a little hard. The cakes selection was just mediocre . Not bad just not great for the price. No tea top ups. No ambient music - just overall sad .

    The food itself was beautiful (afternoon tea) and the waitress was extremely friendly. However the hostess was problematic. When we arrived, she created confusion by saying she couldn't find our booking. I showed it to her and she found it. Then she told me I hadn't identified whether I was booking afternoon tea or lunch, despite my booking clearly stating afternoon tea. As we walked to the table, she then chastised us (and every other table to be seated) for not stating dietary requirements, despite not having any. She, finally instructed the waitress to ask us the same questions, creating more confusion. It's a shame, as we were extremely frustrated before even sitting down, which ruined the atmosphere for what could have been a lovely afternoon tea.

    The afternoon tea itself was fantastic but I think the staff were unduly resistant to our party's request for a table with a better view after being put in the corner next to the bar. I was told the restaurant was very busy but we were there for 2.5 hours and there were free tables with great views the entire time!

    We arrived at the restaurant and the welcome was superb. We sat at our table and the room temperature was so cold. Nearly all the customers were sat with their coats on. It was a very uncomfortable place to be. Also the 45 minute wait for food was a bit disappointing when the resteraunt seemed quiet compared to other times we been. On a plus side the food we did have was extremely nice. Would return but would be prepared next time.

    Our experience at Tir a Mor was absolutely delightful. The cuisine surpassed my expectations, and I must admit, I wasn't very familiar with the restaurant until I became a member of the SPA. I'm truly grateful we chose to celebrate our 9th anniversary at your establishment. The staff exhibited exceptional attentiveness, and the restaurant's ambiance struck the perfect balance between modernity and relaxation, all while exuding a luxurious aura. I wholeheartedly recommend Tir a Mor to our family and friends and eagerly look forward to our next visit.

    Service was really friendly and professional. Food was amazing. Went for Lunch. Would go again. Only small point. People nearby using speaker phone which was not the Restaurant fault. Some people are not considerate. The menu was Bistro type but we asked for Ala carte and no problem for them. Next time we would go in the evening. It’s a special place so would prefer a quiet environment not that it was noisy. The Restaurant part looked more intimate and as we are a pair of old romantics that suit us. Overall we had a fabulous day so thank you to the staff.

    Lovely restaurant, great staff. Good view. Convenient parking. Drinks order was delayed even when not busy. The Sea Bass batter was not particularly appetising and the spicy noodles were not spicy and very small quantity. The food received didn’t reflect the price. Expensive prices. Will not attend again.

    Tir a Mor is a great restaurant. It's in a hotel which means that it's a very big room and that does affect the ambiance to a degree. Food was very good, though conventional rather than inventive. Service was aslo good. Recommended.
