Review on Ye Olde Bulls Head Inn - Loft restaurant

Built in 1472 and improved in 1617, this venerable old inn near Beaumaris castle is justly proud of its past. It boasts the largest single-hinged gate in Britain and the whole place is stuffed with antiques and curiosities.

Foodwise, the place divides up into two separate eating areas. On the ground floor is a conservatory-style extension housing a casual brasserie with a slate floor and lime green walls. Here you can order anything from a sandwich or a salad to more substantial dishes like Mediterranean fish soup with rouille, char-grilled lamb burgers with minted coleslaw or grilled fillet of black bream with stir-fried courgettes and Thai cream. (Open daily for lunch and dinner.)

The Loft restaurant is very different in style with its dramatic colour schemes, huge porthole-shaped mirrors and pale oak beams - and the food is in keeping. Starters like tian of blue swimmer crab with gazpacho, red pepper tuile and avocado purée set the tone, before equally intricate mains such as breast of duck with purple figs, parsnip purée, ravioli of confit leg and spiced jus or local brill with pak choi, wild mushrooms, roast salsify and beurre blanc.

Bringing down the curtain might be coffee crème brûlée with chocolate ice cream and warm cinnamon doughnuts or frozen nougat parfait with raspberry coulis, poached pear and honey crisps. The full wine list is a mighty tome (a trimmed down version is offered in the brasserie) but prices are fair and the quality is high.
