Review on Hotel Portmeirion

The famous Italianate village of Portmeirion, created by Sir Clough Williams -Ellis in the 1920s, is a living, breathing private fantasy that still lures in the crowds: it has played host to countless celebrities, from George Bernard Shaw to H.G.Wells, and - as everyone knows - Patrick McGoohan found it almost impossible to leave!

Straight down the hill from the gateway is the splendid rococo hotel, where executive chef Mark Threadgill oversees some imaginative country-house cooking in the curvilinear '30s-style art decor restaurant. Looking out onto the estuary, it is one of the most romantic settings in the land.

Native Welsh ingredients are always on show: fillet of Pen Llyn beef could be served with seared foie gras on a bed of pulses and pancetta, while collops of venison often appear with caramelised figs and roasted cinnamon apples. You might open with a salad of avocado, vine-roasted tomatoes, char-grilled asparagus and pickled samphire and finish with peach and orange brle or traditional bara brith bread-and-butter pudding with crme anglaise.

The mightily impressive wine list focuses on France, and offers commendable value across the board - even when grand vintages are involved.
