We were very pleased to find somewhere other than the Quarry where we could eat in Machynlleth. Hubby is vegan and I am a gluten-intolerant veggie, so we are most chefs' worst nightmare, but the new chef at the Coch Llew was not only happy to accommodate us, but also made every effort to ensure that he was getting it exactly right for us. There were 3 other vegans in the restaurant at the time and he was actually quite ecstatic about this. Bless! So lovely to get such a nice welcome.
The food was yummy - husband had a hearty veggieburger which was made to the chef's own recipe. It was voted quite delicious. I had griddled vegetable skewers with oyster mushrooms. The skewers were cooked to perfection. A simple dish but not any easy one to get exactly right.
Just to add that the Coch Lllew serves a lot of meaty dishes and Sunday roasts too - so caters for everyone.
Prices were a little higher than we would expect to pay in a simple pub setting, but the welcome we received and the standard of the food made up for that.
