Had an enjoyable meal. Lamb adobo with welsh lamb was good - though rather huge portion. Veggie mushroom Wellington was also good. Also had a fab Welsh gin and soda with elderflower (definitely a convert to this!) - made in Corris thank you

We are a restaurant that prides itself in sourcing and serving all that is good about Welsh food. Welsh lamb, beef, pork, sea bass, sea bream, lobster and crab. Welsh cheeses and beers from a local micro brewery. We also have an extensive vegetarian menu.
