Y Polyn, Carmarthenshire
Y Polyn Tart

We had just spent a few hours wandering around a cold and windy Carmarthen. Despite a pleasant visit to the new market where we found an excellent butcher with home cured meats and bacon, a great organic vegetable seller and a little old lady selling home made cakes we found nowhere that took our fancy for lunch. Back in the [&hellip

Finding a decent place to eat on a Monday night isn't always easy but when it's your Wedding Anniversary and the wife wants to go 'somewhere new', the pressure is really on. So imagine my relief when I discovered that somewhere I'd been meaning to go for a while, had just started to open on Mondays. One quick phone call [&hellip

Village Kitchen and Bar, Whitchurch

Where do you go on a Friday night for a reasonable meal if you don't want to spend a fortune and your dining companion has a list of don't eat ingredients longer than a decent food encyclopedia? Well you could certainly do worse than pay a visit to The Village Kitchen and Bar in Whitchurch. This wasn't the first time [&hellip

I’ve been following the career of Chef Anand George, since discovering him in the early days of Mint and Mustard. In fact I first reviewed M&M back in September 2008, when I was still randomly posting on Blogger.com (click here to read). You can tell it was early days as you got three chocomosa for dessert as they hadn’t fully [&hellip

The Hand & Flowers, Marlow

  "Never trust a skinny cook" it used to say on an apron hanging in my mother's kitchen. I, like Mr. Kerridge, have little danger of being described with the adjective "skinny". Although I'm sure that this similarity wasn't the only reason that I wanted to eat Tom Kerridge's food pretty much the moment I saw him on TV. It [&hellip

Crown Social, Cardiff

I think I was one of the first local foodies to pick up on the fact that “ex Michelin two star Chef Martin Blunos” was going to open a restaurant in Cardiff. The fact that he was going to do it in conjunction with Crown Hotels and Restaurants (CHR), owners of the one Michelin star ‘The Crown at Whitebrook’ and [&hellip

The White Hart Village Inn, Usk

Ever since I was a kid, I've always loved looking at maps. In those days it was maps in encyclopaedias and atlases. Then, in my days as a Rally Navigator, it was Ordnance Survey maps with all their incredible detail. These days, of course, anyone interested in maps or cartography is living in the golden age of Google. Google Earth, [&hellip

.cn Restaurant, Cardiff

“13 weeks,” said Nathan, our waiter, in answer to my question of how long had .cn been open.  I liked Nathan and not just because apart from MrsA, the niece and myself he was the only other Westerner there. I liked Nathan because he was extremely helpful and seemed to enjoy answering all our questions about the dishes.  I liked [&hellip

Tribe Tribe, Cardiff

I don't know when I first came across Tribe Tribe. I know it was sometime last year, but whether it was pointed out to me or I discovered it's website by chance I cannot recall. What I do know is that immediately I saw the web site I thought it could be interesting and I wanted to try it. So [&hellip

The Hardwick, Abergavenny

I've been to The Hardwick about 5 times before, ate food cooked by Stephen Terry at a banquet at the National Botanical Garden of Wales and also at a Chef's demo evening at The Tithe Barn in Abergavenny. You could say I'm a fan.   So when MrsA suggested we help celebrate the Bank Holiday with a nice lunch we [&hellip
