Restaurants in Wales


Wales is known for its dramatic landscape, friendly inhabitants and the abundance of pasture producing some truly quality ingredients. The expanse of coastline, too, provides the chefs cooking in Wales with an excellent supply of seafood - not to mention the famous Anglesey sea salt.

This collection highlights some of the best restaurants in Wales. In Penarth near Cardiff Restaurant James Sommerin offers a range of exquisite tasting menus, while over in Pembrokeshire the aptly named Coast combines breathtaking sea views with unbeatably fresh seafood caught right in front of the restaurant. Culinary legend Shaun Hill's rural inn The Walnut Tree is a fantastic Michelin star dining experience in Abergavenny, while up in North Wales Tyddyn Llan is a homely restaurant-with-rooms which serves up classic Welsh fare with real pride.
