Good Hotel Guide Review

Not quite the back of beyond’, but this restaurant-with-rooms ‘in a very pleasant, quiet, rural location’ is well worth the trek, according to trusted Guide readers. ‘Food is the main event’ at Susan and Bryan Webb’s Michelin-starred retreat, ‘and the menu makes you want to stay longer to try more of his cooking’. Backed by ‘spot-on’ service from ‘professional, friendly’ staff, the chef marries crab and langoustine with avocado salsa, calves’ sweetbreads with bubble and squeak, panna cotta with blood orange and grappa, taking advantage of seasonal Welsh produce. Away from the epicurean delights, the ‘sympathetically extended’ Georgian property has ‘tastefully decorated’ guest rooms. ‘There was plenty of storage, two armchairs, a very comfortable bed. Our bathroom had great towels, a walk-in shower and freestanding bath, but no shaving mirror or soap dish in the shower. Minor irritations.’ Overseeing everything is Susan Webb, who is ‘very much in evidence’, ensuring that events runs like clockwork. Breakfast brings ‘good coffee’, several ‘freshly cooked’ options. Perhaps, mused one guest, the excellent bread served at dinner could be used for morning toast. (DH, and others)
