Review on Gliffaes Hotel

'A piece of Italy with an English garden fit for a Greek god set in the Welsh hills,' proclaims the hotel's blurb effusively. In a nutshell, this Victorian country house is set within 35 acres of grounds and mature woodland 150 feet above the River Usk in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The restaurant boasts nineteenth-century panelling, French windows and lovely views of the garden; by contrast, the kitchen delivers food that is bang in tune with the times. Carpaccio of monkfish with chives, capers and Italian 'mustard fruits' is a lively starter, competing with sauté chicken livers, black pudding and Marsala.

Carmarthen ham and Welsh beef make their presence felt on a menu which also promotes rare breeds like Gloucester Old Spot pork (the stuffed loin and belly are served with sauté Pembroke potatoes, agrodolce sauce and caramelised apple). Grilled lemon sole comes with Welsh rarebit, tomato and red onion salad; also look for braised Middlewood lamb's hearts with wilted spinach and mash, not to mention audacious desserts like pear Pithivier with chilli and rosemary ice cream.
