Review on The Bryn Howel Hotel, Cedar Tree Restaurant
Set in the magnificent Vale of Llangollen adjacent to the Llangollen Canal, this mansion was built in 1854 as a private country residence for local brick and quarry magnate James Caster Edwards. For the last 40 years it has been run as family-owned hotel, and it still retains many fascinating original features: the panelled bar boasts a celebrated ornate ceiling, and you can still see the first two lines of the Welsh Anthem inscribed over the historic fireplace.
There are spectacular views of ruined Dinas Bran Castle, perched high above the Vale of Llangollen (not to mention jaw-dropping sunsets) from the windows of the Cedar Tree Restaurant. The kitchen tries to please all-comers with regularly changing international menus that work their way through the likes of salmon, prawn and crayfish cocktail with gazpacho mayonnaise, seared Barbary duck breast with sesame noodles, braised shoulder of lamb, and desserts such as dark cherry crème brûlée with cinnamon biscuits.
