Review on White Horse Inn
Built during the seventeenth century to satisfy the thirsts and hunger pangs of travelling drovers, the whitewashed White Horse still makes the most of its gorgeous setting amid the Arcadian splendour of the Vale of Clwyd.
The quarry-tiled bar is a godsend for footsore walkers and outdoor types looking for refreshment, but most people make straight for the main dining room. Modern sculptures, decorative plates and textile renditions of classical frescoes set the tone, and the menu has a distinct modern accent.
Local belly pork roasted with curry spices and served with Mascarpone is a typically eclectic starter, alongside grilled Barbary duck breast with fragrant smoked paprika salsa. After that, choose - perhaps - slow-roasted Llanbedr spring lamb with red wine and rosemary gravy or smoked haddock on a bed of wilted spinach.
To finish, look out for the 'Welsh cheeses of the month', or plump for a homely dessert like apple and cinnamon crumble or Eton Mess. Vintage 'cellar selections' add some extra beef to the well-chosen wine list.
