Review on Illtud's 216

Georg Fuchs made his reputation cooking at the St David's Hotel overlooking Cardiff Bay, but has moved on and opened this country restaurant at Llantwit Major strangely called Illtud's 216 with his wife Einar. The premises oozes history, and was a malt house was back in the sixteenth century. Its new incumbents has given it a facelift and a new flexible attitude that brings everything from morning coffee and business lunches to family roasts with 'Sunday potatoes'.

Welsh ingredients and famous recipes pop up on the menu (anything from upmarket Welsh rarebit to traditional cawl laced with ale and sage). Otherwise, the food has a more contemporary edge - witness Parma ham and Pant Ysgawn goats' cheese tart with cranberries and caramelised red onions, crispy duck salad with pink grapefruit and pomegranate, and sea bass fillet on creamed green lentils. Austrian apple strudel has echoes of Fuchs' European roots; otherwise you could finish with bread-and-butter pudding or chocolate mousse with mango coulis.

The restaurant name? Apparently, Illtud was a monk who reputedly brewed beer on these premises many moons ago.
