Penhelig Arms Hotel

Terrace Road, Aberdovey, Gwynedd/Gwynedd, LL35 0LT
This 18th century hotel is delightfully situated overlooking the River Dovey Estuary, opposite the old harbour. It has something everyone - a hotel (with comfortable rooms), a restaurant and beamed Fisherman's Bar (offering an expansive, but lighter menu, and very popular as a pub with locals).

The restaurant, with its crisp white napery, offers a brasserie-style menu, which is very strong on local fish. Expect to see the likes of 'Sardines grilled with Rosemary and Lemon'; Creamy Cockles with Laverbread & Carmarthen Bacon on Toast' and 'Antipasto with Olives and Parmesan Shavings' among the starters.

Perhaps 'Seared Scallops and Crevettes with Chili, Lime and Coriander'; 'Creamy Butter Bean, Leek, Mushroom & Garlic Gratin'; 'Roast Duck with Port & Brambleberry Sauce with Roast Potatoes & Green Beans' and 'Roast Rack of Lamb with Roast Peppers and Salsa Verde'.

Desserts might include 'Raspberry Frangipane Tart'; 'Lemon Posset with Shortbread' and 'White Chocolate Cheesecake' and there are good local farmhouse cheeses.
