Carlton Riverside

Dol-y-Coed Road, Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys/Powys, LD5 4RA
This three-story town house, houses both a top-class restaurant, with a relaxed friendly atmosphere, and comfortable rooms. The dining room is airy, with crisp white napery and high-backed chairs.

Chef/Proprietor Mary Ann Gilchrist offers a short menu with just a few choices at each stage, and while the menu closely follows the seasons, to begin, there's usually a soup - perhaps 'Leek and Potato with a Poached Egg' - possibly 'Seared Scallops with a Lime and Caper Vinaigrette'; 'Twice-Baked Soufflé Suisseuse' or 'Smoked Salmon with Créme fraîche and caviar'.

You might follow with the likes of 'Brill with Black Rice, Leeks and a Shellfish Velouté'; 'Welsh Lamb with Minted Pea Purée, crushed New Potatoes and Béarnaise Sauce' ; 'Fettucini with Irfon Valley Wild Chanterelle Mushrooms with Parmesan & Mixed Leaves' or 'Warm Peppered Beef Salad'.

Desserts maintain the high standard, with perhaps 'Chocolate Fondant with Oranges in Caramel and Grand Marnier'; 'Compôte of Raspberries with Tarragon-Scented Crème Anglaise' or 'Apple and Calvados Sorbet' among the offerings.

If you plan ahead, you can stay overnight - or longer - in one of their comfortable bedrooms.

While lighter meals can be taken at the weekend in Bassets Bistro, which has its own entrance.
