Owner's description

Upper Rectory is a small friendly restaurant in Berriew, near Welshpool in Powys run by Les Routiers award winning chef/proprietor Kerry Huber and husband Paul Huber, preparing all dishes and accompaniments for her special 7 course seasonal “Tasting” menu.

Our unique selling point is that the restaurant is within our home making it an intimate and welcoming setting. Your table is yours for the evening so the menu can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. The menu can be individually tailored to suit dietary requirements on request.

Our food is an eclectic mix, based on Kerry's personal taste, paired with sound cooking techniques; rather than a particular country's cuisine but is influenced by modern European with French cooking using locally sourced produce, the finest Welsh organic cheeses and our own home grown produce from the Upper Rectory kitchen garden. The dishes are created to reflect what’s in season, and what’s really good to eat. At Upper Rectory we use Welsh produce as much as possible, thus cutting down on food miles and highlighting our management of food waste and green ethics.

We also offer accommodation in our delightful Shepherds Hut. The hut sleeps 2 and is situated in the lush wild meadow above Upper Rectory. It is the epitome of glamping with hot & cold running water in the traditional outhouse adjacent to the shepherds hut and a Heated Wet Room nearby.

"Our first visit to this little gem of a place certainly didn't disappoint. From the moment we walked through the door the attention to detail was amazing. Every course we ate was so flavoursome..our favourite being the Twice Baked Cheese Soufflé with the Welsh Rarebit Sauce and the Fillet of Pork stuffed with Wild Garlic We'll certainly be recommending Upper Rectory to friends and family and will definitely be returning ourselves."
