Llys Meddyg

In a pretty town between the mountains and the sea, this Georgian coaching inn is run as a contemporary restaurant-with-rooms by Ed and Lou Sykes. Pembrokeshire natives, they are keen to showcase the fat of their land: Ed Sykes runs countryside- and seaside-foraging courses, as well as hands-on introductions to butchery, smoking and curing (on-site smokehouse). In the smart dining room and the flagstoned Cellar Bar, modern menus might include home-smoked salmon, cucumber ketchup, apple, wasabi; braised shoulder of lamb, cauliflower, caper cockle jus. Welsh tipples on the drinks list: Penderyn whisky, real ale from Penlon, local beer from the Gwaun Valley brewery, 15 minutes’ drive away. In summer, meals may also be taken in the informal Kitchen Garden dining room, which opens on to the ‘lovely’ enclosed garden. Children are welcomed: meals can be tailored for younger tastes; there are beanbags and garden games to play. Decorated with local art, the bedrooms have a tea tray and a minibar with fresh milk; three have a sofa bed to accommodate a family. ‘Breakfast was great fuel for our day’s walking.’
  • The best of its kind – small, family run, professional. This appealing Georgian house on the main street stands by a quick-running brook. Inside, there is an affable air. The owners are warm, open, genuinely interested in people. The enthusiastic young manager welcomed us; he also served dinner in the bar that night. Our room (No. 5, on the top floor, was compact, but well organised and comfortable; it had a modern, rustic look. The enormous bathroom was very smart. There are three spaces in which to eat. The pretty, rustic dining room has a pleasing, almost Nordic feel. It is obviously a local gathering place. On a quiet night we ate in the bar. Dinner was exceptional – the best we ate all week.

  • Everyone very friendly. A special atmosphere. Our room felt luxurious yet cosy. Large modern bathroom with double-ended bath. Breakfast was great fuel for the day.
