This was the 6th Michelin star establishment out of 7 in Wales for me and my husband to visit in recent months. It was, unfortunately, the most disappointing to date. There were more staff than guests on the night we dined. There ratio of staff to guests was about 1.6 to 1. Staff, while attentive, all asked us how out... More

A truly wonderful experience! We had the pleasure of being seated in the open plan area next to the kitchen and watched and chatted to the chefs as they prepared the courses. A lunch taster menu was an incredible encounter of complex, unusual and delightful flavours and textures.....too many to mention but our favourites being Not French Onion Soup, Lager... More

The tasting menu was varied and interesting although we would have appreciated slightly larger portion sizes for some of the courses. The staff were very attentive throughout. The price of the tasting menu was very reasonable and significantly lower than we've paid at other Michelin Star restaurants although the drink prices pushed up the total bill. Overall, we had a...

Flavours were amazing. However, would recommend that a little special treat for special occasions, just like what other Michelin starred restaurants do for their clients.

Had such an amazing 2 nights here in the Hogarth suite. Couldn't face the evening taster menus but had an incredible taster lunch with superb views and topped off by being invited into the kitchen for a bonus last dessert to meet Gareth. All the staff were so friendly and the chefs clearly love being there. Food was stunning and... More

If you are booking this type of fine dining experience you probably have a pretty good idea roughly what tyoe of experience to expect. The meal is more of an experience, the tastes are always a bit off the wall and the food itself is always impossibly complicated and clever. The restaurant itself is beautiful with the front of house... More

Just returned from another excellent taster lunch experience in a new look Ynyshir Hall restaurant. The bar area had been refurbished since my last visits and beautifully done. The service was excellent and food creations absolutely delicious. Look forward to returning.

The food was sublime and every course of the 14 course taster menu was explained by the chef. At £95 per person this is definitely not an everyday meal. Service was excellent with friendly, helpful staff and they were willing to adapt the menu for dislikes if advised earlier. There are just two choices of menu (both tasting menus). I... More

My husband&I were lucky enough to book the Chef's Table recently as a special birthday treat&the food is just exquisite-absolutely to die for!

Description
The restaurant at Ynyshir is one of Wales' most unique and contemporary fine dining destinations and holds four AA rosettes as well as its Michelin Star. The focus is on the complete experience, a journey through our landscape and through our seasons. The restaurant serves alternative British tasting menus using the very best of Welsh and British produce. The menus showcase the best of Welsh ingredients following the seasons, such as Welsh Wagyu Beef and Anglesey Onions throughout the year, as well as locally foraged sea herbs from the estuary and greens from the woodland floor and Ynyshir's extensive gardens. During hunting season expect to see wild deer and local duck, grouse and partridge, and in summer Welsh Lamb from the Dyfi valley. Gareth and his team pickle, salt, ferment and preserve fruits, leaves and berries carrying the harvests through the winter and into the spring. Expect to see dishes such as 'Not French Onion Soup', 'Mackerel Sweet & Sour' and Gareths take on a Tiramisu all served alongside a carefully selected wine-list whilst overlooking the Cambrian mountains and Ynyshir's extensive gardens
