Ynyshir enjoys a truly special setting and these hugely talented owners have made it into somewhere well worth taking a long journey to visit. First, the room was sumptuous - beautifully decorated with an impressive state-of-the-art bathroom (complete with whirlpool bath), the most comfortable bed...More

Had a 9 course tasting menu, which was amazing. We didn't stay, but were able to look at a couple of rooms which were also amazing. Not cheap, but great for a special occasion.

The restaurant at Ynyshir is one of Wales' most unique and contemporary fine dining destinations and holds four AA rosettes as well as its Michelin Star. The focus is on the complete experience, a journey through our landscape and through our seasons. The restaurant serves alternative British tasting menus using the very best of Welsh and British produce. The menus showcase the best of Welsh ingredients following the seasons, such as Welsh Wagyu Beef and Anglesey Onions throughout the year, as well as locally foraged sea herbs from the estuary and greens from the woodland floor and Ynyshir's extensive gardens. During hunting season expect to see wild deer and local duck, grouse and partridge, and in summer Welsh Lamb from the Dyfi valley. Gareth and his team pickle, salt, ferment and preserve fruits, leaves and berries carrying the harvests through the winter and into the spring. Expect to see dishes such as 'Not French Onion Soup', 'Mackerel Sweet & Sour' and Gareths take on a Tiramisu all served alongside a carefully selected wine-list whilst overlooking the Cambrian mountains and Ynyshir's extensive gardens
