Find this excellent restaurant with rooms set in a splendid ivy-clad house, in peaceful parkland on the Gower Peninsula. The dining room, overlooking the grounds, continues the luxurious and relaxing feel.
The menu is based on local produce, many of which are given a modern twist; as would be expected, fish figures prominently.
Depending on the season, perhaps begin with the likes of 'Seared Scallops with Black Fettucine'; 'Salad of Jerusalem Artichokes, Quails Egg and a Shallot Vinaigrette' or 'Parma Ham with Parmesan Shavings'.
Maybe to be followed by 'Baked Hake with a Roasted Pine Nut and Rocket Crust and a Caper Vinaigrette'; 'Roast Supreme of Free-Range Chicken with Celeriac Purée and Tarragon Jus' or 'Welsh Black Beef with Dauphinoise Potatoes, Red Chard, Spinach and a Port Jus'.
If you still have room, finish with one of their tempting desserts, such as 'Lemon Posset with Fruit Compote' or 'Dark Chocolate Mousse with White Chocolate Ice Cream'. While the more savoury-toothed won't be able to resist their Welsh farmhouse cheeses.
