Review on The Shed Wine Bar & Bistro

'Pure unadulterated joy!' exclaimed the 'True Taste of Wales' judges before awarding the Shed its 'Regional Gold' award. Rob and Caroline Jones' amiable restaurant occupies defunct slate works offices and fisherman's lock-ups by Porthgain quay, and it's been decked out in nautical style with all sorts of curios and bric-a-brac.

Local fish is the mainstay of the menu (the Shed was also AA Welsh Seafood Restaurant of the Year, 2006), and the owners catch their own crabs and lobsters. In addition to crustacea, Caroline also conjures up seared scallops with hot mustard and shallot sauce, fillet of gurnard with potato and saffron broth and hake cutlet 'en papillote'. Fillet of Welsh Black beef with béarnaise is an alternative for meat fans, while desserts could range from walnut tart with Welsh whisky butterscotch sauce to poached pear in mead and honey.

Simpler one-course options are the order of the day at lunchtime. Note that opening times vary seasonally, so telephone for details. Booking essential.

    Well worth a off-route diversion to enjoy excellent food in a pleasant atmosphere

    We dine regularly in the adjacent and more famous Sloop Inn at Porthgain. Their standards are equalled at the Shed in a more intimate atmosphere. Both establishments become crowded in summer but it's worth mixing with the people to enjoy the food at The Shed. I only take close friends to The Shed because I'd hate it to become too well-known and trendy. (Sorry -- that comment can't be good for business!!)
