Illtud’s 216 Restaurant Review

It’s a few years since we last visited Illtud’s 216 restaurant in Llantwit Major but we popped along on the spur of the moment for my birthday last week.

Even though it’s been 3 years the restaurant hasn’t appeared to change much. Although fairly non-descript on the outside the inside has a medieval feel to it (click on the photo for a better view). Even though it has a high roof in the main part of the restaurant the use of drapes and banners gives a warm cosy feel. The front of the restaurant has a wood burning stove which enhances the ambience – especially when the owner Georg Fuchs managed to fill the room with smoke!

Even though it was a Tuesday the restaurant was quite busy. We turned up without booking and got a table easily though.

We both chose off the 2 courses for £12 menu. The food arrived quickly and was very good. Service was a little haphazard with one of the waitresses going into panic mode several times.

Illtud’s 216 is well worth a try if you’re visiting Llantwit Major.

They are open Tuesday to Sunday from 10:30 am for morning coffees, from 12:00 pm to 2:30 pm for lunch and from 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm for dinner, and Sunday’s from 12:00 pm for a traditional Sunday lunch. Telephone: 01446–793800
