Review on The Fernery at The Grove

Surrounded by the lovely countryside of Narbeth in Pembrokeshire, The Fernery restaurant is set in The Grove, a chic boutique hotel which can trace its history back to the 15th century. The restaurant provides an elegant setting with views of the gardens and wildflower meadows and an inviting terrace for dining alfresco during the summer months.

There's a real respect for ingredients, many of which are foraged from their own kitchen garden, while others are carefully sourced locally, with lamb coming from the nearby Preseli mountains and fish from the local fishermen. Enjoy a starter of diver caught scallops, fennel, cucumber, yoghurt, curry spices and white chocolate caramel or rabbit smoked loin and confit leg terrine, shallot, egg yolk and pan juices. Main courses embrace Preseli Bluestone Lamb, roast loin, glazed neck fillet, carrot mousse, turnips and baked garlic mash or Atlantic halibut en croute, cockles, roast cauliflower served with laverbread. Proceedings conclude in style with desserts such as pecan pie, Llawhaden clotted cream and roast fig or Valrhona chocolate, bitter chocolate and amaretti delice, caramelised kumquats and vanilla seed ice cream.

The Grove's Head Sommelier has compiled a wine list of over 280 bins knowledgeably garnered from all corners of the world which has won two awards including a 'Notable Wine List' Award from for AA and a Special Commendation Award for 'Best Newcomer' in the Conde Naste Johansens / Champagne Taittinger Wine List of the Year Awards 2012.
