“Set up from a brook on a winding Wye Valley road”, Chris & Kirsty Harrod’s “elegant and stylish restaurant with rooms” enjoys a “beautiful and peaceful location” and yet is the survey’s most commented-on destination in Wales. “Ingredients tend to be foraged, grown at the restaurant or sourced locally, and the result is a wonderful and unexpected array of flavours” from “menus which are always novel and intriguing”. “I spent days thinking about how challenging and rewarding the meal had been… always a good indicator of excellent food!” “Comfortable rooms”, too.

“The Wye Valley setting is remote and peaceful” at Chris & Kirsty Harrod’s restaurant-with-rooms, which is again enthusiastically endorsed for its “fascinating (I had to ask about the ingredients, many of which seem to have been foraged or grown locally) cooking with a stunning level of skill, care and attention going into every plate”, plus “interesting wine pairings” and “informed and professional service”. In October 2019 the couple purchased the freehold, with plans to up the degree of luxury and number of rooms.

"Just off the River Wye on a small lane makes finding a little challenge. Also parking is limited so beware if the hotel is full too. They seem to have quite a few charming rooms (not tested). The lunch offer is basically 3 or 5 course offer. We had the 3 course version at £47 and by sharing the plates, we could sample all but one of the 5 course offer. The 5 courses are the same portion size so if you choose this eschew the excellent home baked bread! Duck liver with confit was smooth and rich; Elderflower cured salmon was amazing for salmon but less unusual than other courses. We rarely eat meat but made an exception here for the Ryeland lamb which proved wise as it was so tender and tasty. Cornish Cod with (a few) razor clams was also outstanding. Desserts are OK - ours took so long (40 minutes) to prepare that we had to complain and the meal lasted over 2 hours. We were not is a rush and it was comfortable but still not impressive. Especially as the deserts were not exactly the most complex part of the meal, simple home grown strawberries or black cherries with ice cream! £135 for 2 with 2 glasses of wine, no coffee"
