This boutique hotel, near Swansea, houses a good restaurant; whose kitchen under the direction of Christos Georgakis uses carefully-sourced local ingredients.
On the food front, they offer a 'Ramblers Menu' between 12.00-17.00 with freshly cut sandwiches, soup and cakes - while more serious dinners have plenty to tempt them.
A summer menu brought 'Pant ys Gawn Goats Cheese Soufflé'; 'Pan-Roasted Breast of Wood Pigeon with Black Pudding Salad & Apple Vinaigrette' and 'Seared King Scallops with Swansea Smoked Salmon, Leeks and Dill & Butter Sauce' among the starters.
'Rack of Welsh Lamb with Laver Bread Rosti, Confit Tomatoes & Niçoise Vegetables'; 'Fillet of Line-Caught Sea Bass with Home-Salted Cod-Crushed Potatoes, Wilted Sea Purslane and Saffron & Tomato Vierge' and 'Fillet of Welsh Black Beef with Cwrw Braf Rarebit (sic), Fondant Potato, Baby Carrots & Port Jus' listed among the mains.
Tempting desserts such as 'Almond and Blue Currant Tart with Araretto & Red Coulis'; 'Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake, Pistachio and Mascarpone Quenelle & Orange Parfait' and 'Beyson's Farm Summer Fruit Pudding with Pembrokeshire Clotted Cream set the style. While those with a more savoury tooth should enjoy their selection of Welsh Farmhouse Cheeses.
They occasionally special Greek evenings, which are deservedly-popular.
