Review on Gurnardís Head Hotel

The great rocky outcrop of Gurnard's Head, with its ancient hill fort and abandoned tin mines, is visible below this imposing roadside inn and gives the place its odd name. Things are looking up here, thanks to the revitalising efforts of new owners Charles and Edmund Inkin (the men behind the award-winning Felin Fach Griffin near Brecon).

Given the setting, it's no surprise that seafood has a big presence on the menu, although the kitchen invests the food with some modern European touches. The fruits of the sea could appear in the shape of grilled mackerel with purple sprouting broccoli, anchovy and rosemary butter or roast brill with carrot purťe and sauce bordelaise.

From the land, you might find slow-roast belly pork stuffed with rhubarb and oatmeal and served with polenta and a Cabernet vinegar sauce, while desserts might include hazelnut cake with marinated prunes, Greek yoghurt and honey. The wine list limits its mark-ups to £10 a bottle and there's not much over £20.
