Wales offers such an abundance of quality produce we constantly strive to source all of our ingredients locally and insist on daily deliveries to ensure the freshness of each dish we prepare.

Rest table

We have invested heavily and worked tirelessly to produce our own selection of vegetables, salads, herbs, fungis, edible flowers and fruits from our extensive kitchen gardens.

The restaurant menu is prepared here each day by our team of Chefs, therefore given notice we should be able to provide for most dietary requirements, whether it be vegetarian, vegan or food allergies such as gluten free or coeliac. We strive to produce a balanced menu working with local seasonal produce.

Our Restaurant staff are extensively trained in all aspects of the menu and wine list. Our cellar contains over 100 hand-selected wines from across the world designed to complement the dishes we prepare.

To complete your dining experience we offer an excellent variety of locally blended speciality Teas and Coffees. We pride ourselves on our indubitable commitment to providing quality in food and service for all our guests.
