Good Hotel Guide Review
What first smites the eye is the town’s medieval castle, formidable on its cliff-top. Steps behind it, this restaurant-with-rooms – in two adjoining 16th-century buildings restored and refurbished with contemporary flair – is no less of a surprise. Chef/patron Glyn Roberts and his wife, Jacqueline, have run their ‘impressive’ enterprise for nearly 30 years; today, it continues to attract guests who come for the ‘excellent accommodation’ and ‘delicious cooking’. The dining room is hung with Welsh art, its oak tables laid with crisp linen. Here, the menu changes with the seasons, each time drawing on fine Welsh produce – crab and fish from Aberdaron; lobster from Shell Island; pork and beef from Bala. Typical dishes: grilled asparagus, Carmarthen ham, roasted tomatoes; rack of local lamb, rosemary and garlic potatoes, buttered carrots. In the main building and characterful annexe (a former inn), some of the dark-beamed modern bedrooms have ‘wonderful’ views over mountains and sea. There’s freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice at breakfast, with more local flavours (laver bread and Llyn peninsula bacon, for example) on the menu. More reports, please.
