THIS RESTAURANT IS NOW CLOSED!
The Pentre Gwilym is an ideal venue for families, particulary those with young children. The upstairs of the restaurant houses the "Wacky Warehouse", a softplay area for young children which costs £2 per child per hour. Ear plugs are strongly recommended.
The restaurant itself is your standard 'chain style' serving traditional English food such as steaks, chicken and pies etc. Prices are reasonable at around £6 - £9 although they have a permanent "Two for One" offer which gets you the cheapest meal for free.
The restaurant is very large and spacious with a seperate adults section - complete with a pool table. It has a beer garden and a childrens play area outside, which the kids seem to love all year round.
Last time I visited we were disappointed as the food was served cold despite asking for it to be re-heated. I would be tempted to give it another chance however, as it is such a perfect venue for kids.
The restaurant doesn't take bookings so it is recommended to come early, however, you can wait in the Wacky Warehouse and they will call your name over a tannoy when a table is ready. If you prefer, you can skip the restaurant and just make use of the Wackey Warehouse which serves some refreshments.
