Review on The Penrallt
Rebuilt in 1814 on the site of a seventeenth-century country mansion, The Penrallt has also done service as a radical boy's school before eventually becoming a country-house hotel. Standing in 42 acres of lovely grounds overlooking the tranquil expanses of Aberporth Bay, it's a perfect escape and comes complete with expensive amenities including a swimming pool.
Formal meals are served in the elegant surroundings of the wood-panelled Bay Restaurant with its splendid, ornately beamed ceiling and plum-coloured walls. The kitchen has a keen eye for Welsh produce and flavours, serving a warm salad of cockles and scallops with marsh samphire and laverbread, or creating a take on rum baba with Brecon vodka. Elsewhere, rack of Welsh spring lamb is paired with spinach, butternut squash and black pudding, while bara brith-and-butter pudding figures among the desserts.
Alternatively, head for the Terrace for something more casual, or enjoy an alfresco snack and a drink by the pool. Weekly gastronomic themed evenings are worth checking out.
