Review on Llangoed Hall

Believed to have been built on the site of the original Welsh Assembly (the legendary White Palace), Llangoed Hall has had a chequered history. Fast-forward a few hundred years and you discover its present incarnation - thanks to Clough Williams-Ellis (of Portmeirion fame). In July 2012 this former Von Essen hotel was bought out of administration by businessman Roger Hancox.

The immaculate panelled restaurant extends into the aptly named Whistler room filled with works by the aforementioned artist. There is a new chef at the helm, Sam Bowser who joins the kitchen brigade from the three-AA-rosette restaurant at the 38-bedroom Dormy House in Broadway, Worcestershire.

Open your account with pan seared scallops, pea puree, hazelnut and crisp Parma ham or ham hock, black pudding and foie gras terrine, paired with toasted brioche and homemade piccalilli. Main courses embrace fillet of Welsh Black beef, woodland mushroom ravioli, roasted butternut squash, potato fondant and tarragon jus or roasted fillet of salmon, spring onion and smoked haddock broth and peppered samphire. Desserts are hard to resist with dark, milk and white chocolate terrine, dark chocolate fondant and raspberry compote or pineapple tart tatin, coconut ice cream and Eton Mess.

Service is notably attentive and there is an outstanding selection of wines knowledgeably garnered from all corners of the world to complement the food. The restaurant was awarded three prestigious Rosettes in the AA Restaurant Guide.
