Tan-y-Foel - Restaurant with Rooms

Capel Garmon, Betws-y-Coed (Nr.), Conwy/Conwy, LL26 0RE
Find this excellent restaurant, with splendid views over the Conwy Valley and towards Snowdonia, up a narrow lane. It looks like a simple stone building - set in a pretty cottage-style garden - from the outside, but inside, it's smart and modern. Janet Pitman offers a menu with only two choices at each stage; but these change on a daily basis so residents have a certain variety.

These might be the likes of 'Seared Scallops with Nero Sauce'; 'Grey Mullet with a Mint, Coriander, Cumin and Tomato Dressing'; Carpaccio of Marinated Tuna, local Orne Crad, Avocado, Herb Tomato Jelly & Basil Oil Dressing' or 'Breast of Pigeon on a Split Pea Tart with Game Jus' to start.

'Steamed Wild Sea Bass with Avruga Caviar and a Smoked Salmon Risotto'; 'Oven-Baked Fillet of Wild Sea Trout with Samphire Wild Rice & Fennel Risotto and a Merlot Sauce'; 'Wild Boar with a Cider and Thyme Sauce' or 'Loin of local Lamb with a Green Pea Filo Parcel and a Mint Cream Sauce' to follow.

Desserts are more homely - 'Blackberry and Cinnamon Sponge with Crème Anglaise' - being a good example. Welsh Farmhouse Cheese is offered for those not having a sweet tooth. The choice might be limited, but what you end up with, is some of Wales' best cooking.

No mobile phones, jeans, trainers or track suits.
