Review on Castle Cottage

Reckoned to be one of the oldest dwellings in Harlech, this sixteenth-century cottage stands in the shadow of the town's famous Medieval castle and has earned a high reputation as an hospitable restaurant-with-rooms – thanks largely to the efforts of Glyn and Jacqueline Roberts. He cooks, she presides out front.

Resolute commitment to local produce is one of their trademarks. Grilled Carmarthen air-dried ham is served as a starter with asparagus and butternut squash, or you might be tempted by a warm salad of queen scallops with bacon, pine nuts and croûtons.

Fillet of local lamb is simply roasted then served with rosemary mash and red wine jus, baked fillet of Conwy salmon comes on leek and parsley couscous with mustard and whisky sauce, while suckling pig might be accompanied by red cabbage, black pudding and Calvados sauce. For dessert, expect things like banana and rum Strudel or baked lemon cream with berries and white chocolate sauce.

South Africa figures prominently on the wine list, which also boasts a fine selection of New World Sauvignon Blancs.
