“Traditional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

The Wynnstay Hotel in Machynlleth ('mackh-unthleth' is about as close as an English speaker gets) do a set meal on Wednesday market days: £10 for two courses, £12.50 for three.
Example: Soup*/Potted Welsh ham, house chutney; Carbonnade of Welsh beef, crushed potatoes, panache of veg., or courgette, sweet pepper and mozarella quiche, potato and veg.; Chocolate ice cream sandwich. a four-, bordering on five-star meal, for a three-star price.

*Carrot and coriander soup seems to be compulsory in Wales.

The hotel is old-fashioned in a good way; the staff are courteous and helpful.

Tip: served from twelve noon. Go early, the dining room gets busy.

“Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Friendly quick service. Lunch was good, though we had to ask for mint sauce for the lamb. Good portion size. Starters and desserts were a bit unusual. The place seems a bit dated in decor, but that's the character of an old building. Good value.

“Pizza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

Enjoyed a decent enough pizza, probably should have shared it! Staff were friendly and the place looked clean. We didn't go into the main Wynnstay Dining Room as we only needed a snack. Recommend the Mochyn Glas, Blue Pig pizza which was bacon, mushrooms and blue cheese - very tasty!

Another great pizza from Kevin. I have tried to find a better pizza, from Zepherellis in Ambleside to Pescara in Italy.....they can't be topped!
