Finish with a savoury - such as 'Devils on Horseback' or 'Welsh Rabbit with Marinated Anchovies' - or perhaps their selection of Welsh farmhouse cheeses.
For those with a sweet tooth, desserts such as 'Banana and Rum Strudel with Vanilla Pod Ice Cream' or 'Tarragon Crème Brulée with a Brandy Snap of Berries'.
