Review on The Oriel Country Hotel
Just a short stroll from the village of St Asaph, this white-painted hotel started life as gentleman's residence in the mid-eighteenth century, before becoming a boys' school. It moved into the hospitality business during the 1970s, and has been privately run for more than 10 years.
Following substantial refurbishment by its current owners, the hotel now boasts excellent amenities, including a stylish restaurant with a sunny terrace attached (alfresco dining is popular when the sun shines). The cooking is please-all international stuff that moves from venison sausages and poached mussels in white wine and cream to braised shoulder of Welsh lamb and seared duck breast with Cointreau and orange glaze, with desserts such as apricot and Amaretto crème brûlée to round things off.
If you are looking for a light bite during the day, the Conservatory menu might be just the thing. Sandwiches, Welsh rarebit, paninis, tortilla wraps and hearty offerings such as sausage and mash are served from 11.00am to 6.00pm.
