Review on Llanwenarth Hotel
Perched on the east bank of the River Usk, this privately run hotel (formerly known as the Pantrhiwgoch) occupies a sympathetically extended sixteenth-century building with unrivalled views towards the Blorenge mountain. The aptly named Riverside Restaurant has floor-to-ceiling windows and a large Mediterranean-style dining area; there's also a terrace for fine-weather meals.
The lengthy menu covers a lot of territory, taking in dishes such as home-smoked pigeon breasts with fig jam, frisée and pine nut salad, fillets of sea bass on cauliflower, potato and truffle purée, and pork tenderloin on a black pudding and Agen prune Tatin with caramelised shallot jus. To conclude, try pear and frangipane tart with cinnamon ice cream. Fixed-price 'Flyer' menus are available from 5.30 – 7.00pm during the week and 6.00 – 7.30pm on Sundays.
