Tyddyn Llan

César award in 2006

Once a shooting lodge, Bryan and Susan Webb's restaurant-with-rooms is 'a truly lovely place', say trusted reporters this year. The pretty Georgian house stands in well-maintained lawns and gardens facing the Berwyn Mountains. Susan Webb runs the front-of-house 'with allure and dynamism; she is enchanting in the way she approaches guests'. Bryan Webb, the Michelin-starred chef, is 'a generous man, and the portions served, often minute in such restaurants, are equally generous'. He dismisses the trend for foams and jellies in his presentation of dishes like dressed crab, avocado salsa; Goosnargh duck breast, potato pancake, apples and cider. Everything about the house, 'the style, the comfort, the housekeeping, shows meticulous attention to detail'. The bedrooms are individually styled: some have an antique bed, one has a Victorian roll-top bath. 'Their sang froid during a power cut at breakfast has to be commended. They produced perfect scrambled eggs on a camping stove, boiled water in an outbuilding, and even managed to provide toast; a tour de force.' (Francine and Ian Walsh, and others)
  • Up to it's usual very high standard. The food is as good as ever. The canapés are substantial and the starters are all good. Quality is not at the expense of quantity, portion sizes are good, the only downside is that by pudding time we were a wee but full! The rooms remain good and Susan Webb is excellent running front of house, her vibrant personality lifts the whole place. The only minor issue is that limited English of the foreign waiting staff - ordering a packed lunch had its difficult moments. That apart, they were efficient and cheerful. Not cheap, worth every penny!

  • Truly a lovely place. The location, the house, the style, the comfort, the housekeeping, the meticulous attention to detail, all are praiseworthy. Special mention must be made of the charm of the hostess. Susan Webb. Her husband is a generous man and portions, often minute in Michelin-star restaurants, are truly generous. The staff are pleasant, attentive and considerate. Last and not least one has to commend the sang froid with which a power cut was met on our last morning. A real tour de force.

  • Absolutely superb - our 3rd visit and this hotel cannot be faulted. Excellent food, comfortable rooms and great service from friendly and efficient young staff.

  • Fabulous. Michelin-starred food brilliantly cooked and plenty of it. Very generous canapes, and in the four nights we ate there we only had room for dessert on the last night. Best chips I've ever had. Good breakfast buffet and freshly cooked Welsh breakfast. Thoroughly recommended.
