Review on Caesars Arms
Originally set up as a rural offshoot of Le Monde and La Brasserie in Cardiff, this well-heeled pub/restaurant is hidden away down winding country lanes some 10 miles from the city. The 1950s-style building has been given a facelift with a heated patio and covered terrace as major new attractions – although the interior is equally appealing.
The main talking points are the vast counter displays of fresh meat, game and seafood on ice, which ensure that everything is prepared and cooked to order. The choice is enormous, running from naturally reared Welsh Black steaks, racks of lamb and venison cutlets to Dover sole, lobster, lemon sole, John Dory and sea bass (try this baked in sea salt).
Crayfish cocktail is a best-selling starter (or you might prefer asparagus with hollandaise), while desserts are standards like crème brûlée and raspberry Pavlova. A mighty 100-bin wine list provides good drinking across the board – with lots available by the glass.
