Grills Steakhouse Restaurant is the Most Loved small business in Pontypridd, according to a massive nationwide search run by TheBestOf to find the best local shops and companies in towns and cities across the UK.

The results of the 2 week campaign reveal that Grills Steakhouse Restaurant based behind the Llanover Arms in Trallwng, is the most loved after 42 people recommended it.

Grills Steakhouse Restaurant is owned by Kevin who started just over a year ago.  With its stylish interior and freshly cooked steak, this well known restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere and is run by a well trained team who provide sterling customer service with a smile. 

Kevin says: "It is fantastic to have received so many testimonials and see how much our customers appreciate the great steak, great service at great value and the welcoming atmosphere.  All my staff are highly trained, so we can provide that 'personal touch' meeting all our customers' needs.”

The 42 recommendations bestowed on the Restaurant included praise for its ‘good service’, ‘friendly atmosphere’ and ‘delicious food’.

“Kevin is running a superb business, and should be rightly proud – but to be honest what’s been underscored again and again in this campaign is just how many fantastic local businesses there are in and around Pontypridd today.  These business owners and their staff are the life-blood of our economy and it’s tremendous that they’ve been shown so much love. We’ve been absolutely blown away by the response from the people of Pontypridd and the surrounding areas who wrote 100’s of glowing testimonials in support of local businesses”, says Ben Rogers  from TheBestOf Pontypridd, a new business in the area showcasing, promoting and championing some of the best local businesses. 

The ‘14 Days of Love’ campaign from TheBestOf generated over 138,000 testimonials from the length and breadth of the country.  More than 30,000 businesses drawn from almost 400 towns and spanning every business type - from hairdressers, tattoo artists, fitness instructors and bridal stores through to bouncy castles accountants, architects, solicitors - even dentists and funeral directors – all received nominations from adoring customers.

Nigel Botterill CEO of TheBestOf commented “Small business owners have kept our economy going over the last 18 months.  They employ millions of people, provide services that we all use and can have a massive impact on our quality of life – whether it’s delivering to customers out of hours, calling on older customers to check they’re ok or simply looking after their customers brilliantly.  In fact in our research one in five people say there is a small local firm they just can’t live without.  We wanted to give people the chance to throw the spotlight on these superb small businesses – and they have!”
