The Grill at the Celtic Manor Clubhouse: The Review

My boyfriend and I love eating out, and it's no secret that we're massive foodie's. Last month we were lucky enough to go for dinner at The Grill in the Celtic Manor Clubhouse.

The Grill has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere that's open to residents and non-residents alike. Their private sun terrace overlooks the Roman Road golf course that's perfect for '#Golfie' watching with a glass of Prosecco in the Summer. Or if you just fancy a coffee, there's plenty of log fires to cosy up next to in the cooler weather.

The Grill describes their restaurant as 'Relaxed informal dining, with honest and simple food.' 
The menu is made up of steaks, salads, burgers and pasta. I could happily have eaten my way through the whole menu, everything was right up my street.

After we were seated we were brought freshly baked bread rolls with unsalted butter and rock salt with chili powder. This was a tasty added touch whilst we were browsing the menu.

To start with I went for Potted Duck Rillettes with piccalilli, and crusty bread (£8.55) This was very moreish and a great cold starter. My boyfriend went for the 8 Chicken Wings, coated in house rub, served with herb crème fraiche £6.95. These were unbelievable! I unashamedly helped him finish these...

For my main course I went for The 8oz Beef Fillet Steak (£34.00). All of their steaks are cooked on a lava stone grill and served with fries, red onion and watercress salad. The steaks are 28 day aged from British-reared cattle. I asked for mine to be cooked medium-rare, and of course I had to order a side of peppercorn sauce too.

This was hands down the best steak I've ever had and it was cooked to my taste perfectly.
Garrad went for the 8oz Welsh Lamb Rump (£22.00) which looked pretty impressive too. 
To be honest though, I was so absorbed in my own meal, I barely noticed his... Ooops!

After two delicious courses each we were too full to manage dessert. Instead I opted for a Liqueur Coffee with Tia Maria. You don't often see 'Floater Coffee's' on menus these days but I love them. It was a lovely way to end a superb meal.

If you haven't eaten at The Grill yet then you really must. The food is incredible and the atmosphere is lovely. It's the perfect mid-week date night.
