Reviewed 25 July 2013

Needed to take a weekend break for London, so we decided to go foraging in Wales. We booked one night at The Foxhunter at Nantyderry.
Upon arrival at the inn which took more time than we expected, we were greeted by the host. We missed our lunch so we asked for late lunch. We were served with a wonderful meal with home cured salmon and Cesar salad so good that put any 5 star hotel food anywhere to shame.
Afternoon foraging in the nearby woods was planned with Rouel, a very knowledge man on picking wild food. We found Elderflower, hops shoots,wild strawberries among other precious gifts from nature. We also found some mushroom although they were not in season.
We were greeted again by the chef after returning to the inn and dinner was prepared for us with local food and the wild food we picked. Never expected hop shoots went so well as garnish to a plate of local fish cooked in shellfish broth. Our Eldoflower was fried like tempura served with a bowl of lemon penna cotta. Salad again was fresh with unnamed greens which is far more superior than their supermarket peers.
Our room was comfortable but no airconditioning . It was the hottest day in Nantyderry in many years. We managed to borrow a kitchen fan but it was still too hot.
Breakfast was interesting as we had to make our own using the food which was stored in our fridge. We managed to cook a good breakfast but never as good as the ones prepared by the in house chef, we suspected.
Room was ok and food was superb. With fresh air and beautiful countryside scenery of Wales, what else can one expect from a country inn.

Room Tip: Go in the autumn

Been twice with my wife on Saturday evenings and love this place it's one of our favourite nights out away from the children but looking forward to bringing the children next time. Fantastic food with great wine list. Looking forward to next visit. What a real gem on our door, who needs Cardiff for a good night out. Worth a visit. Superb

Another relaxing and indulgent 2 days at The Foxhunter. Again, fantastic food cooked by owner Matt Tebbutt and his kitchen team. Always creating menus full of seasonal & locally sourced produce, Matt constantly surprises & delights with his expertise. I eagerly look forward to each visit & the time spent there flashes by too quickly. Lisa, Jo & the front-of-house team work extremely hard to ensure your stay is enjoyable. Relaxing with Matt & Lisa after service is an absolute delight - the "icing on the cake".

I've already described the layout of The Stable & the Cottage, so this time I'll just say that I timed the walk from The Stable to The Foxhunter....... it took just 40 seconds!

Room Tip: The Stable is perfect for single travellers or a couple - modern & stylish interior. The cottage...

Our party of nine were gathering for a celebratory dinner & the restaurant certainly is in a lovely, setting, tasteful decor & restful ambience. Staff friendly & helpful & importantly not obtrusive or over-weaning. Our friends electric wheelchair was a bit of a snug fit through the split front door but manageable - it was a shame that the end of table setting (which was a good thought) had a very solid square leg support which meant that our friend couldnt get close up to the table & consequently had to lean forward quite a lot to eat his meal... Good fresh ingredients & a great choice of dishes to please most palates, The two children in our party had a choice of three main courses - chicken or fish gougons or fresh pasta with tomatoes & of course a selection of "scrummy" icecreams for pudding. First courses were all reported as extremely tasty or delicious, while the second courses presented were equally well received - only caveat being that about half of the adults in our party considered the food to be very salty & the skate (which my partner had) was described as apperaing to have been cooked in sea water! Puddings were a resounding success. Prices were on the high side for my budget, but arguably warranted for the good quality produce & culinary skills which are evident at the Foxhunter.

Room Tip: If you have a wheelchair user in your party, you may want to check before going to the restaurant wh...
