Here at Ynyshir Hall, we’re blessed with an abundance of wonderful fresh local ingredients. Our succulent seafood comes from Cardigan Bay — with lobsters, crabs and shrimp . And there is exceptional wild salmon and sewin in the local rivers. There is an abundance of local game, we have tender-sweet Welsh lamb and Welsh Wague beef, all second to none. Our pork is organic, our bacon is hand-cut for breakfast and our sausages are prepared to our own recipe. Our kitchen garden produces wonderful fruit, veg, herbs and salads. We also collect wild foods such as mushrooms, samphire, elderflower, pine, eucalyptus, wood sorrel and wild garlic — all absolutely delicious thanks to the purity of the local soil, water and air. We are proud to have been voted one of the UK’s Top 100 Restaurants this year.
