Phil Leach & Helen Farmer gathered plenty of experience at some of the UK’s top restaurants (including The Walnut Tree & The Horn of Plenty) before setting up shop in this tiny, wedge-shaped building in one of Swansea’s smarter suburbs. Hugely popular with locals, Slice has just 16 covers so it’s wise to book ahead. Although trained as a chef, Helen’s main role here is to provide polished & friendly service, while Phil gets to work in the tiny glass-fronted kitchen downstairs. His cooking is clean & contemporary, with minimal fuss, clear flavours & maximum use of Welsh ingredients. Expect Monmouthshire air-dried ham with oven-dried marinated tomatoes followed by roast loin of Gower lamb & a mini shepherd’s pie, with late-summer pudding & Pembrokeshire clotted cream for dessert.
