If you want a good steak do not go to the Grill.Three steaks all overcooked and the size of my sons fillet was a joke it went back ,asked for medium it was grey in side,my Wife had a rump full of gristle.The maitre d did handle it in a professional manner and removed the drinks and the supplements but this is not the point you pay a high price for dinning at the Celtic Manor and this was such a disappointment for my sons Birthday.Also the air con was not working in the dinning area
To finish on a positive note the starters and dessert were good

Used this restaurant twice during stay for a conference. Always busy and popular has a good selection of food available but the popularity of the bar area with golfers coming off the course for a drink means that the atmosphere is lively and if you are looking for a quieter restaurant with slightly better food their Rafters restaurant at the 2010 clubhouse is better. Overall good food and service

Had looked forward to visiting the Celtic Manor Grill for a while and was expecting something special seeing as they charge £35 for a 6oz steak. Upon arrival we had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated yet it was 6pm and not at all busy.
We then had to wait a further 30 minutes before someone came to take our drinks order, being pregnant I wasn't happy waiting that long and felt dehydrated.
Then we ordered and were told we were looking at old menus, so had to be provided with a shorter menu with less choice?
The starters were ok but my steak was dry, it looked as if it had been frozen, defrosted then cooked as the meat was grey not pink.
Will not be returning.

We ate at the grill restaurant on an overnight package at the Celtic Manor, the grill is in the golf clubhouse just away from the main building, it’s a short walk or brief trip in the concierge bus. Three courses were included in our package here so we struggled a bit after a large lunch, we both had the tomato soup to start, it came with bread, the bread was very nice but the soup was quite tasteless which was a bit disappointing. For main I had the special, which was mushroom and truffle oil ravioli with goats cheese and walnuts, this was very nice and a decent portion size, my wife had the barbecue ribs which was a huge portion, the ribs were tasty and tender but the sauce was a bit too tomatoey and not so barbecue. We squeezed dessert in because it was included but we were full to bursting at this point, my wife just had ice cream and I had the fruit crumble, these were both nice. The staff were great here and really attentive, we even got a couple of complimentary proseccos because it was my wife’s birthday, this was a nice touch. This restaurant was nicely decorated with a great view over the golf course.

We had a private room for our large group. Food was lovely, just took a very long time-we were eating still at 2330. Adrian our waiter was excellent, very patient and helpful. Overall a very nice experience
