DINING AT TYDDYN LLAN

The restaurant is the heart of Tyddyn Llan.

Price note. An optional 10% service charge will be added to all food and drink charges.

Tyddyn Llan is considered one of Wales’ finest restaurants with a high rating in the Good Food Guide, and Good Hotel Guide. Susan Webb ensures the smooth running of the dining-room. Meanwhile husband Bryan, and his team ply their craft in the kitchen.

The restaurant is committed to fine seasonal produce, arriving daily. Like local meat and game via our vigilant butcher. And fish straight from the coast. It’s Welsh produce as much as possible, but the menu still demands more, be it diver-caught scallops from Scotland, Somerset smoked eel, Buffalo Mozzarella from Naples, Wyndham Farm chicken. The dishes on offer for lunch and dinner (see below for menus from this current week) are created daily to reflect what’s in season, and what’s really good to eat.

THE WINE LIST

Previous ‘Good Food Guide Wine List of the Year’

Tyddyn Llan boasts an award-winning wine list featuring wines from most of the leading wine producing countries of the world. Many of these are sourced from little-known small wineries where the proprietor is actively involved in the wine making. Our wine list is constantly evolving as we continue tasting new wines and searching out the best balance between quality and cost, to keep the choice of about 250 wines alive and interesting.

A good variety of wines are served by the glass and carafe, and there’s a selection of half bottles. Food and wine matching is always fun and when you have our Tasting Menu we offer wines by-the-glass chosen for each course (with the exception of pudding), £50 per person for our eight-course menu. We have popular wine dinners during the year.

Our list is backed by a broad range of apéritifs and our digestif list featuring an excellent range of Cognacs, Armagnacs, Calvados and Whiskies as well as Ports, Eaux-de-vie, Marcs and Liqueurs. We try our very best to keep the prices down by keeping mark-ups reasonable on all our wines. We hope that you will agree that our wines are very fairly priced and include some bargains compared with many other restaurants.
