Went for a 60th birthday, just the 2 of us! Had the overnight package. The room was exquisite, so much character, beautiful bathroom and everything that you would want or need! The evening meal was just lovely, great canapes and champagne, lovely soup, I chose...simple with grilled lobster and fillet steak!! It was perfect. Rum Baba for desert and petit fours to finish up! Can't believe I got it all in and I enjoyed every mouthful. My husband had fish curry to start (was amazed it was on the menu as a starter and he said it was excellent!), followed by rib of beef and he finished up with a chocolate dish that contained honeycomb, rum and raisin ice-cream - all lovely. We washed it all down with a bottle or French red that Susan had chosen. Susan and the staff made us so welcome and nothing was too much trouble! Breakfast next morning was great as you can imagine and it was a perfect way to spend a weekend. The setting is lovely but unfortunately it was raining but it didn't spoil our fun and will definitely return in the summer!! Definitely one you need to go to! Can't wait to go back - thank you!!More

Very warm welcome and made to feel comfortable from the moment we arrived until the time of departure. Covid-19 aware, great rooms and staff. Excellent food and selection of drinks. What more could you ask for.

Disappointing. The menu (£38 for two courses) wasn’t worth it .The starter of scallops was actually one scallop cut into three ! None of the starters or mains were exceptional and infact my potatoes were undercooked and the duck stringy. £7 extra for a ribeye?

Roaring log fire, generous canapés, excellent wine list. The most delicious cep soup, perfect scallops, tender duck brest followed by not too sweet ginger sponge pudding. Excellent service. Highly recommend.

Had Sunday lunch here in a group of four recently and it was fantastic. A starter of chick peas, kale and pulled lamb with, was it, cumin (?) really hit the spot - tasty in the extreme yet subtle with it. Calves kidneys on mash...with a fragrant sauce was also unbeatable - as were the veggie accompaniments of deep-fried courgette, roast potatoes, cauliflower cheese and mixed vegetables. My pudding was St Emilion of chocolate with honeycomb and rum and raisin ice cream. A bottle of Sancerre and a glass of Lodi zinfandel to go with the kidneys helped everything go with a swing. Fabulous canapes (those quail Scotch eggs are brilliant!) and petit fours were great too. I could not recommend this restaurant more highly.More

Ten of us enjoyed a really lovely night’s stay here to jointly celebrate our 40th anniversaries which had occurred earlier in the year. From the outset, everything was fabulous. The rooms are well maintained, each one with its own individual perks and quirks as one...would expect of a period property. Lovely bedding too. Our fizz and canapés were served beautifully by two of the younger staff who looked after us superbly all evening. An absolute credit to themselves and the restaurant. A range of tasty hors d’oeuvres including scotch eggs, lava bread, salmon rillettes started us off in excellent style. We had organised to have the tasting menu, which was presented on quality paper for us to peruse and also to decide on a couple of options. An unusual and unexpected feature of a tasting menu - thanks. Pumpkin soup, beetroot or crab, scallop, sea bass, duck or venison, all very tasty and beautifully presented. The individual servers were charming and yet unobtrusive while our party gabbled away! As well as all of the above there was a range of desserts and a very generous cheese board to choose from. Coffee and tea in the lounge were accompanied by a wide selection of petit fours. Outstanding food and service. Thanks for a wonderful time. Breakfast this morning was excellent too. A huge range of fruits as well as coffee, tea, cereal, toast with beautiful butter. Forgot to ask where that came from? Thanks for a grand finale of our various celebrations this year.More

We arrived on a Friday and had Tea & Cake on arrival, we left on Saturday so I'm not sure if it's served on Sunday.

I'm sure there are a couple of B&B's in Llandrillo which is really close to Tyddyn Llan. Bala is a bit further and if you want a few drinks it may mean that you would need a taxi. The food is superb in Tyddyn Llan......I... More
