The 17-course dinner menu was incredible. We loved that the chefs served each course and explained the ingredients and how they had been prepared. We were the only diners that evening but unlike a previous reviewer we found it to be a very personal and inclusive experience. It was wonderful. We loved the food, we loved the concept.

Had a 9 course tasting menu, which was amazing. We didn't stay, but were able to look at a couple of rooms which were also amazing. Not cheap, but great for a special occasion.

I have waited a while to review Ynyshir as I hoped to feel a bit of clarity about my experience there or maybe i would decide that I did infact fact enjoy my experience there. The truth is I didn't. I have eaten at plenty of Michelin starred restaurants in the UK and abroad, with varying levels of accolades and... More

This was the 6th Michelin star establishment out of 7 in Wales for me and my husband to visit in recent months. It was, unfortunately, the most disappointing to date. There were more staff than guests on the night we dined. There ratio of staff to guests was about 1.6 to 1. Staff, while attentive, all asked us how out... More

A truly wonderful experience! We had the pleasure of being seated in the open plan area next to the kitchen and watched and chatted to the chefs as they prepared the courses. A lunch taster menu was an incredible encounter of complex, unusual and delightful flavours and textures.....too many to mention but our favourites being Not French Onion Soup, Lager... More

The tasting menu was varied and interesting although we would have appreciated slightly larger portion sizes for some of the courses. The staff were very attentive throughout. The price of the tasting menu was very reasonable and significantly lower than we've paid at other Michelin Star restaurants although the drink prices pushed up the total bill. Overall, we had a...

Flavours were amazing. However, would recommend that a little special treat for special occasions, just like what other Michelin starred restaurants do for their clients.

Had such an amazing 2 nights here in the Hogarth suite. Couldn't face the evening taster menus but had an incredible taster lunch with superb views and topped off by being invited into the kitchen for a bonus last dessert to meet Gareth.

Description
The restaurant at Ynyshir is one of Wales' most unique and contemporary fine dining destinations and holds four AA rosettes as well as its Michelin Star. The focus is on the complete experience, a journey through our landscape and through our seasons. The restaurant serves alternative British tasting menus using the very best of Welsh and British produce. The menus showcase the best of Welsh ingredients following the seasons, such as Welsh Wagyu Beef and Anglesey Onions throughout the year, as well as locally foraged sea herbs from the estuary and greens from the woodland floor and Ynyshir's extensive gardens. During hunting season expect to see wild deer and local duck, grouse and partridge, and in summer Welsh Lamb from the Dyfi valley. Gareth and his team pickle, salt, ferment and preserve fruits, leaves and berries carrying the harvests through the winter and into the spring. Expect to see dishes such as 'Not French Onion Soup', 'Mackerel Sweet & Sour' and Gareths take on a Tiramisu all served alongside a carefully selected wine-list whilst overlooking the Cambrian mountains and Ynyshir's extensive gardens
