Restaurant Review: Caesars Arms

Standard

A friend and myself dined here on a Saturday in May 2014. There is a large car park for the restaurant so parking is readily available. Other than that the restaurant is pretty isolated just outside of Church Village/Trefforest in South Wales. The village it is located in is called Creigiau.

Opposite the restaurant (which admittedly looks like a pub from the exterior) is a farm. The restaurant is now a little bit dated inside. The main grilling area is in the dining area. You can watch your meat being cooked. I choose mushroom soup to start and my friend had the oysters. The soup was priced at £4.95 and the Oysters were £1.50 each.

The soup was not memorable. Standard mushroom soup with blended mushroom and a fairly thick consistency. No bread was served with it. My friend said his oysters were fantastic and very fresh. They were served with lemon and Tabasco. My friend chose lamb in gravy for his main and I opted for ribeye steak.

Now I love steak so seeing it before being cooked and then seeing it prepared was a nice touch but sadly the end result was completely lacking in flavour. The French mustard was requested to try and add some flavour. My friend by contrast loved his lamb which was very rare as requested. I’m starting to wonder if I am just hard to please? Finally he opted for a summer fruit dessert which he said was ok. I declined dessert due to my diet.

In all my meal came to £25 as the steak was £18 (I believe the lamb was around the same price). All desserts were £5.95. I would recommend the restaurant for the service as this was impeccable and staff made it clear they were there to help any way they could. They were always polite and helpful. It is worth going if you are a lover of fresh fish would be my suggestion as this certainly seemed to be their speciality. There was no pork option on the menu and only one chicken and one lamb dish.
