Review on Cwtch
The name is Welsh for 'hug' or 'snug' (as in pub), and Cwtch's atmosphere, style and demeanour certainly live up to its friendly moniker. Inside, the irregularly shaped dining area comes complete with bare walls, pendant lamps and shelves of books, while the menu is a celebration of local and regional Welsh produce.
The repertoire changes sympathetically with the seasons, and the kitchen keeps it simple, allowing natural flavours to make their own impact. In spring you might start with a seasonal salad with Pant Ysgawn goats' cheese, watercress and pine nuts, while autumn could bring duck liver pâté with port, juniper and walnut chutney. Mains pick up the theme, running from shoulder of new season's lamb with rosemary to slow-roast pork belly with pork and leek sausage, apple sauce and black pudding.
Vegetables come in ample quantities, and generous sweets follow the classic path for the likes of bara brith-and-butter pudding, crème brûlée with shortbread, and white chocolate mousse pots. The concise wine keeps its prices in check and offers a decent range by the glass.
