A Welsh “Restaurant with Rooms”

Submitted by on July 6, 2010 – 9:58 pmOne Comment

Llys Meddyg, Pembrokshire, WalesThis is the kind of place just for us Road Trips Foodies: Llys Meddyg bills itself as a restaurant with rooms! And, yes, you guessed from the name itself: it’s in Wales — on East Street in Newport, Pembrokeshire, South Wales, to be precise.

Not only that, but it’s part of the foraged food movement that’s sweeping across Wales. We’re not talking about berries and nuts local chefs find in the wild, folks. We’re talking about delicacies like sea beets, fiddleheads and rock samphire. Recently featured on the à la carte menu in the main restaurant were such foraged foods as dandelion and wild garlic for the salads and oysters straight from the nearby estuary. (The May menu is here.)

The Kitchen Garden opens for the summer season on July 13, 2010. New this year are eggs from the inn’s own chickens (all three of them). Their eggs will be used in the chocolate brownies and cakes (the rest of the eggs are sourced “from Andrew, the egg man from Eglwyswrw”). The garden was once the site of a market garden and, post World War II, Llys Meddyg sent dahlias and roses via train to be sold at Covent Garden Market in London. Some of the old cold frame bases are still standing and are now used for growing fresh herbs for the kitchen.

You’ll find Llys Meddyg on the Nevern estuary, alongside Carningli (“Mountain of the Angels”) and within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park! After your locavore meal, snuggle under your down duvet or wrap yourself in a Welsh wooly blanket and enjoy the log fire!
