Tyddyn Llan

César award in 2006

Bryan and Susan Webb have run their ‘truly lovely’ restaurant-with-rooms for 14 years, in this former shooting lodge. It stands in well-maintained lawns and gardens with views of the Berwyn Mountains. It remains ‘up to its usual, very high standard’, says a returning guest this year. ‘Susan Webb is excellent running the front-of-house – her vibrant personality lifts the whole place’; staff are ‘efficient and cheerful’. In the restaurant, Bryan Webb has a Michelin star for his ‘imaginative’ cooking. ‘The food is as good as ever. And quality is not at the expense of quantity: even the canapés are substantial.’ Typical dishes: Wye valley asparagus, fresh morels, crisp duck egg; local pork (fillet, cheek, belly, black pudding), breaded trotter, shallot and thyme purée. Everything about the house, ‘the style, the comfort, the housekeeping, shows meticulous attention to detail’. Country-style bedrooms have dressing gowns, slippers, tea- and coffee-making facilities; a garden suite has patio doors opening on to a secluded garden area. The Webbs are pleased to advise on walks from the door – ‘the perfect prelude to dinner’. (Peter Anderson, 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.
